Where you can go by a rental car

Golden beaches of Salou are some of the best beached on the Costa Dorada. And you will find the one that works best for you among them. A wide strip of sand or a secluded cove with rocks and pine trees — you choose! The most popular beaches are Llevant and Ponent. They are equipped not only for swimming, but also for kiteboarding and windsurfing. There’s an esplanade nearby with restaurants and cafes. The only downside is that it can be overcrowded in high season. If you prefer more secluded beaches, you can go there by car. 

Around Salou, there are great spots for walks and photo sessions, e.g. Punta del Cavall with magnificent sunsets and the Far de Cap Salou lighthouse. 

Fishing enthusiasts should go to Cambrils where they can get tackle, fishing, and even lunch for a small fee. 

You can take a day trip by car to Reus, take photos of the streets with “Spain's finest” Art Nouveau. This city is an architectural masterpiece. Visit the Gaudi Museum and taste fine vermouth. Unless you are the driver, then you will have to take a bottle with you. 

Tarragona is a short drive away, with a very fancy Old Town, the Coliseum, and plenty of shopping centres and restaurants. 

And, of course, you should visit Barcelona, one of the most beautiful port cities in the world.
