For many people, summer is their favourite time of the year. A time when we can make endless plans that aren’t feasible the rest of the year. Not only is the temperature better, but we also have more free time to really enjoy ourselves. But do you know what the best thing of all is? That the Costa Dorada has all kinds of places for all kinds of plans.

Would you like to know what you can do if you spend your holiday in this area? Then don’t miss the following five perfect plans for sharing your summer with friends. 😉


Visit PortAventura World


Travelling to the Costa Dorada in summer without visiting PortAventura World is like travelling to Egypt and not visiting the pyramids. It’s a real sacrilege! Especially if you’re travelling with friends; it’s the ideal place to have a great time with the people we consider to be our other family.

If you love speed, then you definitely have to experience the adrenaline that you’ll feel on PortAventura World’s five fastest rides. And if you like shows, then you can’t miss the best in summer entertainment. At PortAventura World, you’ll have a great time with your friends and experience some very exciting moments. But, above all, you’ll create lots and lots of memories.

If you like to live everything to the fullest and not miss a single thing, then we recommend you purchase the Hotel + Tickets package. PortAventura World has so much to offer that one day might not be enough. 😎


Tour the towns of the Costa Dorada

The second of our five recommendations for your perfect summer with friends is to visit some of the surrounding towns.

We are lucky to be located in such a privileged area, full of beautiful towns with great history and that invite you to get lost in them. From Calafell to Sant Carles de la Ràpita, you’ll find all kinds of corners that will leave you speechless and where you can take photos that will make you the envy of your followers on Instagram.

Bathe on a dreamy beach

During a visit to the Costa Dorada, sunbathing on incredible beaches isn’t just a great way to share the summer with friends: it’s an obligation! We don’t mean to brag, but the unique beaches in this area are really something special.

They are so exceptional that the coast was named after the colour of the sand when the sun reflects on it. With more than 80 km of coastline, it will be impossible for you not to want to take a dip.

There’s just one problem: there are so many wonderful beaches, you won’t be able to decide where to go.


Enjoy the best food

They say we are what we eat. So, if you’re someone who likes to eat well during your trips, rest assured that you’re in good hands here.

But do you know what else they say about food? That it’s even better in good company. And if there’s one thing that the Costa Dorada has plenty of, besides beaches, it’s excellent cuisine.

There is such a variety of dishes that it will be difficult for you to pick just one. Our advice? Try everything. Of course, if this is your first time to the area and you want to taste some traditional dishes that are a safe bet, you should try the xató, the arrossejat, the romesquet, and the menjar blanc. 😋


Play outdoor sports

If you’re a lover of adventure sports, an ideal way to spend summer with friends is to exercise outdoors while enjoying the surrounding nature. Not only will you find unbeatable beaches, but there are also several natural areas where you can practice sports while taking in the scenery.

Sailing, kayaking, paddleboarding, snorkelling… the possibilities on the coast are almost endless. If you want to enjoy, or even learn, a specific sport, there is a wide range of options to satisfy your every need.

Or if you want to explore further inland, there are several hiking and mountain biking routes where you will discover incredible hidden corners. 😉


The best way to spend summer with friends is to do everything

We would love to tell you that visiting PortAventura World is the best plan of all, and although it is undoubtedly a great way to spend time, if you also go sightseeing outside the resort you’ll enjoy an even more unique experience, and one that you’ll remember forever.


Plan your best summer

and live it to the max!
