"People watching in Salou"
One of our favourite spots to relax, have a seat and watch the world go by is Jordimars, right on the front at Salou, opposite the James 1st Statue.
Spanish owned so you can expect a side plate of peanuts with your first order, and as it's on the pavement, you can still smoke.
Get there early in the evening, or you won't get a decent view of the hundreds of people out for their evening stroll.
"Relaxing in La Pineda"
After a busy day or just because you want to, Pan Tastic in La Pineda is another favourite spot for a coffee or chilled cerveca and a bocadillo.
Again, it's Spanish owned and frequented by tourists and locals alike, and you won't be rushed away, sit back, relax and watch the staff interact with the locals, or try and work out the sign language of the tourists.
A good time to come is the early evening when whole families including the grandparents come for a quick drink before heading off to prepare for their evening meal.
This is also situated right on the front and is a reasonable location for people watching.
We were lucky enough to be in Catalunya for the Santa Tecla Festival.
We visited a couple of bars in one of the many squares, then joined the masses outside to watch the castellars arrive.
To the sound of drums and bugles (and one or two Kazoos I think) they marched into the square and proceeded to do their warm up stretches, before using their long silks to bind their waists in readiness for the physical challenge that lay ahead.
Here is another view of the Saint Jaime Statue on the front at Salou.
