The Tamarit Park Resort campsite has direct access to a long sandy beach, with gently shelving access into the sea making it safe for small children. The stunning medieval Tamarit Castle is a focal point of the beach. The beach has watersports. The fine sandy beaches and crystal clear waters are what makes the Costa Dorado coast famous.
This campsite is lively in high season with entertainment, sports tournaments and exercise classes etc. but its also great to visit in low season when its quiet and peaceful.
The site has an excellent supermarket and bakery. There is a lagoon style swimming pool and a paddling pol.
The small town of Altafulla is a 20 minute walk along the beach, or a short drive from the campsite, where you will find a supermarket, bars and some restaurants. You will also find there is a train station in Altafulla, about 1.5km from the campsite, which is ideal if you want to explore the area, for example Tarragona (one stop away), Salou, Port Aventura theme park and Barcelona. Some noise may be heard from the trains from some emplacements.
Please note that the Canvas Holidays pitches and mobile homes are set in a gated area slightly apart from the main campsite, this is a quieter area which you will hopefully prefer.
This is a lively site so on occasion you can hear noise of entertainment and discos until quite late, so it may be an idea to pack some ear plugs ! The sandy beach is excellent and clean and the site itself is clean and you can eat at the restaurant overlooking the beach or at a less formal restaurant overlooking the pool. The Tamarit Park resort campsite is well placed for exploring Barcelona, Tarragona, Sitges etc.

Things to Do in the Area
Barcelona (1 hour on the train)
If you are interested in seeing the fantastic architecture of this town then its worth the journey. Prepare to be astonished by Gaudi's designs of the Sagrada Familial and Park Guell, a magical park with amazing buildings, sculptures, and tile work designed by Gaudi. You will also find Gaudi's old home in Park Guell which is now open to the public as a small museum. Casa Batlló is one of the most interesting and unusual houses in Barcelona.
Tamarit Castle (adjacent to the campsite beach) and Tarragona Roman Amphitheatre (10 miles)
Just two of the historic sites that can be visited. The Roman Amphitheatre in Tarragona was built in the 2nd Century AD and hosted gladiatorial games.

Walk Tarragona to Tamarit
Here is an interesting blog post from someone who has walked a coastal route from Tarragona to Tamarit.
Disclaimer: The reviews published on the site are intended solely for the purpose of providing general information and comment and are purely our opinions. We cannot guarantee that descriptions on this site are accurate, up to date or free from error. We have found that the campsites described are very good and are some of the top campsites in France but we find that it is difficult to find a campsite which has 100% of what you are looking for. Also one person may love a busy campsite with lots of activities while someone else may love a quiet campsite with a small swimming pool. Actually we tend to be the latter ! So what we have done is highlight the good points of the sites and maybe point out a few of what we have found as slightly negative points. However we strongly recommend that you make full use of as many internet sources as possible before deciding about your holiday, including such things as Google maps.
