, where you'll find an international airport and dozens of world-famous attractions. The highlands hold lots of interesting historical destinations and skiing opportunities, perfect for day trips if you need a change of scenery from Costa Dorada's sunny beaches.
Costa Dorada's Attractions
Costa Dorada's beach towns are often centered around a castle, with markets, olive groves, and occasionally resorts surrounding the historic center. The town of Salou is a popular resort destination for tourists, and it boasts some of the area's loveliest beaches. Calafell draws many beachgoers, too, and offers several beautiful golf courses for those wanting to tee off during their vacation. Altafulla, a cute and laid-back fishing village, has a lot to offer visitors as well - explore its local shopping and dining, all with an utterly gorgeous coastal backdrop.
