Breathing fresh air from the minute you open your eyes, surrounded by natural surroundings, is the essence of camping. An ideal holiday style for families, where children enjoy an atmosphere of tranquillity and security, which, at this time, are the most precious qualities. And Tarragona, a reference point on the Costa Daurada, has 7 camp sites of different types close to its 15 kilometres of beaches where you can enjoy a stay free of formality, in tents, motor homes, mobile homes or bungalows protected away from the crowds.
Tarragona, a totally city Mediterranean – where the Romans arrived to found it in the third century BC – has a privileged geographical location that makes it an ideal destination to enjoy the summer of sun and beach that many seek for their holidays.
