Find your perfect seaside stay in Costa Dorada

It’s pretty fitting that Costa Dorada translates to ‘golden coast’ – the sun-drenched strip of coastline that runs across the Southern Catalonia region is flanked with golden sands and calm waters. It’s for this reason and its impeccable cleanliness that there are 26 Blue Flag beaches here. Combined with its access to water sports, nature and other nearby attractions, there are plenty of beach spots ideal for families. With Jet2holidays flying to Costa Dorada from 10 UK airports in 2024 (11 in 2025) and a range of accommodation options available – all bookable with a £60pp deposit – it’s even easier to fly and flop into a scenic seaside stay on one of these bucket list beaches.

The golden sand beach is surrounded by a small pine forest, giving it a beautifully natural feel and making it a popular beach for walking.

Cambrils is also a good base point for road cycling enthusiasts as it is close to hillside towns inland of Costa Dorada. Cambrils also happens to be the gastronomic hub of Costa Dorada, so you’ll find plenty of restaurants and markets to check out in between cycles and swims.
