In Salou the area around Murillo and Carles Buigas Streets is known as the Slammers, because of its multitude of lively music bars popular with the youngest visitors. There are pubs and music bars catering for all types of people and all tastes, giving everybody, whatever their age, the chance to spend some unforgettable nights in.

It has mild year round temperatures with safe and shallow beaches offering hidden coves of great natural and scenic interest design. Points of historical and monumental interest with a varied entertainment and leisure facilities have all helped to turn Salou into the Capital of the Costa Dorada and to earn it the top rating for Family Tourist Destinations in Catalonia.

There are plenty of child friendly activities and parks along this stretch of Costa coast all within easy reach of Salou.

Port Aventura and Costa Caribe are the two main attractions run by Universal, which now come under the umbrella title Universal Mediterranea. These theme parks offer a variety of rides and journeys of adventure through the lands of Polynesia, China and Mexico, the Mediterranean and the Far West. Fun for all the family and worth a one or two day visit from nearby Salou.

In short, Salou has projected itself as a city that cares about its services and is attentive to its communitys needs, offering ideal space both to live in and for social and professional development.

Coastal strip on which the city of Salou is located has long been a privileged enclave for human development, favoured for its beaches and coves. Furthermore, Salou has also transformed itself into an important residential destination. Salou is a tourist and residential city that has consolidated its capital role as the leisure and service centre of the Costa Dorada through the diversity of its offer and the quality and quantity of its tourism facilities.

In Salou it has stunning sands without question and are extremely well looked after. With eight beaches to choose from as well as some small coves, there is plenty of space, even at the height of the season to soak up the rays. Many of the beaches are lined by pine trees affording a little shade from the baking sun. There are so many to choose from you can favour a different sunspot on each day of your holiday.
