The Amazing Costa Dorada

Costa Dorada is also known as the Gold Coast and if you ever decide to visit it, you will immediately understand why people call it like this: the 135 kilometers that stretch from Mataro to Pensicola enjoy a spectacular sun and long, golden and delicate beaches.  Its beaches represent an impressive temptation for those who love the sun, the sand and the water, because they are all fine and bathed by shallow, crystal clear waters.

The lands that surround the Dorada Coast are all extremely fertile and are responsible for producing some of the best wines in Spain; there are also other cultures, such as the olive groves, the fields covered with almonds hazel nuts or the carobs. I am sure that you will be impressed and fascinated by the beauty of these landscapes, as the views they offer are simply breathtaking.

The natural beauty seems to feel like home in the Costa Dorada, as the coast hosts two natural parks that represent the paradise on earth for those who are nature lovers: the National Park Delta del Ebro and the Tortoda Besserit National Park. The Prados Mountain range is another area with a spectacular power of attraction for those who love nature, so if you are one of them, make sure you don’t miss it!
