Cape Salou is just a few miles to the North of Salou, and, is easily reached by the Plana bus at a cost of a couple of €'s. You can also use the little tourist train.
The coast line is rocky, and dominated by steep Cliffs, there are some spectacular views from the viewing point which is well signed posted.
What spoiled it for me, was the the hotels built into the cliffs going down to the beaches, and, some very tatty bars and cafes.
There is a church to visit, but it was closed when we went.
Salou Spanish mainland
"Just down the road from Barcelona"
Literally an hour drive from Barcelona is the seaside resort of Salou. very popular with the Spanish and with everybody else who goes there, we stayed at the camping and caravanning resort of Sanguli which is just about 300 metres from the seafront.
I took my scooter (wheelchair type machine) and found that the resort was fully integrated for the disabled. I found that the restaurants weren't expensive and that the cuisine was varied although my favourite tapas was plentiful (as it should be).
There is a very good bus service around Salou and its surrounding arfea . The Train station is about 500 metres from the main gate of Sanguli and there are plenty of trains to and from Barcelona and Tarragona each day.
The town of is a1 euro bus ride away from the campsite.
The campsite itself is much the same as all the good Spanish sites with Supermarkets, restaurants and take aways. also they have a resident massuer on site.
"Old Building Salou ( not many left)"
Salou has had a great deal of renovation done to it in the recent past and not many of the old buildings are left . This fortunately is one of them that as been refurbished and looks great. Unfortunately you can only view it from the outside,
For those who are interested the steps up to entrance are all tiled in the local blue tiling.
"Salou beach heading towards Cambril"
The beach at salou is very long and quite clean (they clean up every night/early morning.
There are many bars om the front and also a lot of beach voleyball courts(I'm a watcher not a player)
"Entertainment on the seafront"
During the tourist season the town provides assorted entertainment for the visitors. On this particular friday night the local town band entertained with many assorted local and international tunes,
"Across the bay to Tarragona"
Across the bay ( try a water taxi or bus ) there is the ancient city of Tarragona ( with its; roman remains).
"Salou's magic Fountains"
Salou like Barcelona uses it's fountains for entertainment and throughout the Summer the fountains dance to music with lights and laser displays . Very entertaining and a free entertainment for all to enjoy.
"The giants of Salou"
Whilst we were there the Catalan rally took place (Rally driving enthusiastts from all over came and visited).
this gave the locals the excuse to have their giants parade along the promenade the only problem was that there were two giants and a little giant (dont askme why a little giant ws needed) and two cannons they wlked up and down the prom shouting and shooting making a loud noise (as only the Spaniards can) and generally enjoying themselves , a sight not really worth the wait but still something different.
"The fountains by daylight"
The fountains are used by a lot of the visitors to cool down , they do this by attempting to dodge the water as it shoots up.Great fun if you are 10 or 11 although there were senior citizens doing it when we were there . ( Keeping young [BlessThem] lol)
