• Costa Dorada, main image
  • Overview

    The Costa Dorada, sometimes spelled Daurada, always meaning Golden Coast, is a coastal area of Catalonia, between Cunit and Alcanar on the Mediterranean Sea and the long, golden sandy beaches which thread their way south and west of Barcelona boast sleepy resorts galore although the beaches, somewhat miraculously, always seem busy.

    Tarragona is the main town, strategically important and beautifully situated, it was once the most elegant and cultured of all the cities of Roman Spain and its distinguished past, although diminished, is still visible through many splendid remains and a number of excellent museums. Vibrant by day, hedonistic by night, gay-friendly Sitges is perhaps the highlight of this part of the coast. The narrow, meandering alleys and streets of the delightful old town are dotted with bars, restaurants, shops and boutiques.

    There’s a photogenic Baroque church overlooking the resort’s fine, golden beaches, a couple of small museums, some Gaudi buildings, and along the manicured promenade, attractive villas a-plenty.
