Gardens in Cambrils
Samá Park
This enormous park is located on a plot of land near Montbrió del Camp and costs around 4 euros to enter. Besides the large tower (which you can climb), the most beautiful part of this park is the central lagoon. The colors there are really astounding, as well as the Gaudí-esque stone architecture.

Port of Cambrils
One of the things that captivated us about Cambrils (besides the cuisine and beaches) was the fishing port. One of the nicest I've visited, it is functiona both day and night. On the day we met the fishermen painting their boats, gear preparing or repairing their nets. In the afternoon and evening, they go to sea. A quiet and romantic place ...

Cambrils Beaches
Cambrils is known as a sea destination, and not without goo reason. It has 7 miles of beaches, suitable for all ages. Even children have their place in the so-called oasis, shaded areas and swings without leaving the beach. Cambrils beaches are quiet, without much noise or too many waves, making them an ideal place to unwind and relax.

Cambrils Sea-Walk
The Cambrils Sea-Walk stretches for 4 kilometers along the coast, but in reality the entire thing measures nine kilometers from point to point. The marina is in the part closest to the city center, but it’s more relaxing to head a bit outside of the city center and explore the route on a bike or segway.
Cities in Cambrils
Historic District of Cambrils
Cambrils is known for its ports and beaches, but it’s also home to a 12th-century historic district that’s only a short walk from the coast and contrasts beautifully with the more “maritime” style of the modern city. If you’re in Cambrils, a visit to the historic district is indispensable, not just for the historical importance, but also to discover the curious and charming places tucked away there. That way, you can really appreciate the odd maritime – villa character of Cambrils.
Castles in Cambrils
The Port Tower
This iconic tower of Cambrils is located opposite the port of the town. It if rounded and is in good condition. Used for defence and warning against pirate attacks. Today it belongs to the town hall and is part of the History Museum of Cambrils.

Nautical Activities in Cambrils
Another entertainment alternative offered in Cambrils are the nautical activities such as boating, catamaran sailing or surf courses. You can find information on them in the tourist office, along the boardwalk or at the yacht club. Each location offers different alternatives. I was pleasantly surprised by the variety of recreational activities that were offered, so be sure to find the right one for you. It is certainly a different way of living the sea.
Beaches in Cambrils
La Horta de Santa María Beach
This beach is situated at the start of Passeig Maritim de Ponent, in Cambrils. It is tiny, it is only about 360 meters wide. It is a sandy beach, but on the shore you can usually find gravel. It has many facilities, including a snack bar, showers, access to the gateways, skate rentals and kayaks. I like it because the atmosphere is very familiar, there are no hotels nearby and parking is difficult, so it is best to avoid going on Sunday. You just have to look at how clean it is and the quality of the water to realize that is a great spot.
Castles in Cambrils
Castle of Vilafortuny
A defensive fortress that was used to protect the coast from pirate assaults. It is located in Vilafortuny, belonging to Cambrils. I has been completely restored and is used for the collection of events, such as weddings, communions, or conferences. Personally it is a place that I love and that contrasts sharply with the developments of holiday villas and surrounding buildings. It is very easy to reach, both by car and by bus, the only problem is that if you are not attending a particular event such as a wedding or a communion, you can not go inside.
Squares in Cambrils
Spain Square
The Spain Square (Plaça d'Espanya) is the heart of the historic quarter of Cambrils, where the old town hall used to be and is a meeting point for the inhabitants of the town. Being a very bright place, the colours of the buildings and the freshness of flowers make walking through this place highly pleasant.
Bars in Cambrils
This recently-opened bar is located at the end of the pier, right next to the Red Lighthouse (Faro Rojo) and the Marina’s sailing area. It has an interior zone and a small terrace ideal for a cool drink on hot days. From there, you can enjoy amazing sunsets while sipping a refreshing cocktail (I’d recommend the mojitos) to the sound of the surf.
Beaches in Cambrils
La Llosa Beach
This beach is a good place to relax and avoid the crowds on the Costa Dorada. Its name comes from the Roman remains of La Llosa, known throughout the area. It has fine sand, but we can find gravel in the banks, and a rock in the water, so be careful. There are also false islands that can be reached without difficulty swimming, but be careful with the currents. The beach is not in lack of anything: Bars, showers, catamarans, and best of all, even in August we will find a place at the waterfront. The calm waters and islets let you enjoy snorkeling, one of my favorite activities. I usually go on the weekends with my family to leave the burden of Salou, on my car and it is difficult to stop in the vicinity, even before it.
Shows in Cambrils
The Cambrirock is a music festival held in Cambrils for 4 days and includes performances by famousindie, rock and alternative bands. This year, for example, we have Lori Meyers, Dorian or Vinila Von Bismark, some Golden oldies such as Rosendo or Roadblock, DJs and other fusions such as Chambao or Ojos de Brujo. A year ago I had a really good time, now I'll come and I'll try to bring pictures and video ...Although I do not think I will leave the organization .... Update information, photos and video. The festival was great, we went to see Dorian and Lori Meyers and enjoyed it very much as we got to sit on the front row. So we will go back next year.

The Red Lighthouse (El Faro Rojo)
This lighthouse (el farvermell) which once signaled the entrance to the port has now become a symbol of the city. Its intense color and location at the end of the jetty has made it an object of inspiration and point of reference for painters and photographers. From the lighthouse, the sunsets and the view of the fishing port are incredible.
Shops in Cambrils
El Mercat del Punt
The Mercat del Punt is a deli that I usually visit in Cambrils, in the harbour area. It is an amazing place where you will find some delightful things. There is a large selection of water, pasta, sauces, pates, wines, etc. It isn´t cheap, but if you fancy something different for lunch or dinner, you can always treat yourself and it´s cheaper than a restaurant.
