Postcard-worthy beaches, lively harbour towns and centuries-old cities – flights to the Costa Dorada give you all this and more.
People usually book flights to the Costa Dorada for one reason – the beaches. Spain’s aptly-named ‘Golden Coast’ brings you a sandy ribbon that stretches 200 kilometres from Barcelona and Tarragona. There’s every set-up imaginable, from hidden coves to long swathes with watersports and restaurants. Look beyond the sands and you’ll find trendy harbour towns, lively tourist resorts and Spain’s biggest theme park, Port Aventura. History and culture aren’t in short supply, either. Take a day trip to Barcelona where star billing goes to Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia. Or make for Montserrat, with its mountain-top Benedictine Monastery.
