The best beaches and coves on the Costa Dorada

The Flat Rock1
June is just around the corner, which means that soon we will be able to officially welcome the most joyous and fun season of the year, where we can enjoy the wonderful beaches of Spain. And we are lucky to live in a country that has a lot to offer when it comes to the coast.

Today we want to locate ourselves in Catalonia to talk to you about the Golden Coast, the beautiful strip of the Tarragona coastline, which does not receive the attention it deserves because the impressive Costa Brava is in the same autonomous community. Today, however, we want to show you that a beach vacation in the province of Tarragona is also worth it. To achieve this, we are going to tell you about some of the best beaches and coves in this part of the Catalan coastline that stretches for 92 kilometers. Would you like to join us? We assure you that you will not regret it!

Cala Fonda (Waikiki Beach)

The first corner that we want to show you is Cala Fonda, also known as Waikiki Beach. It is a sandy area naturist, isolated and difficult to access that does not have any type of service. Belonging to the Tamarit-Punta de la Mora natural interest area, it is protected from the winds by large cliffs and offers shallow water and fine sand.
