Camping in Salou

What does the historic port have to offer campers?

Steeped in history, Salou’s port was notably used as the base for Spain to conquer the then Moorish territory of the Balearic Islands; first to capture Majorca in 1229 and then Minorca in 1286.

Fear not though, today’s Salou is the tourist capital of the Costa Dorada - a beautiful beach resort catering for families spending a holiday in the sun. Many of whom choose camping as their preferred way of experiencing Salou.

Salou is 12 kilometres from Tarragona and Reus, the airport is close by and the Catalan capital, Barcelona is 110km away, around 1hr 30mins by car. Many campers and holidaymakers don’t just come here to spend the day on the beach - they shelter in the rocky coves that pepper the peninsula or walk along Salou’s excellent seafront promenade. The city also plays host to one of Europe’s top theme parks, Port Aventura, which we recommend you squeeze into your camping trip if you can.

The Salou camping experience

Going camping in this area is ideal. Not only is the climate favourable for an outdoor-based holiday, but local amenities and facilities are geared around providing the best services for holidaymakers.

We offer two excellent campsites near Salou, La Torre del Sol and Vilanova Park, both of which are regarded as ‘best in class’ in the region and will provide you with everything you need to make your holiday a time to remember.

Salou is in Catalonia, and the main language is Catalan, but as you would expect the majority of locals speak Spanish too. If your grasp of Catalan or Spanish is not up to scratch, then there is also wide usage of English. Shops and restaurants near to both campsites, for instance, speak fluent Spanish and English.

Away from Salou's campsites

Here are our places to see, visit and things to do in Salou:

Beaches - Llevant Beach is the place our camping holiday-makers love the most. Other beaches include Platja dels Capellans, Platja de Ponent and Cala Crancs.

Font lluminosa - A fountain which offers lighting and music shows at night. Nearby are great children's play areas and sand sculptures.

Salou Promenade (Passeig Jaume I) – A walk along Salou’s famous promenade is a must for any camping holiday in the area, it runs right along the Llevant Beach.

Torre Vella - Built in 1530 to protect the people from invasion, now holds art exhibitions and events.

PortAventura Resort - A theme park and a water park rolled into one. It has many rollercoasters and water rides, definitely one for the kids… and adults.

Watersports – No beach-holiday camping resort is complete without its share of pedalos, boat trips and banana boat; Salou is no exception.

And the best way to experience Salou?

Whilst Salou offers holidaymakers a range of options for their stay, we believe that the best value-for-money is found in our static mobile homes.

Feature rich, comfortable and with access to facilities most hotels can only dream of - like outdoor pools and tennis courts - a campsite stay in a ‘cottage’ style mobile home won’t cost the earth, but will provide you with a memorable experience.
