Find the best place to stay — Cambrils

Discover the hidden treasures of Spain's Gold Coast

Set along the Mediterranean Sea about an hour and a half south of Barcelona, Cambrils is the quintessential European beach town. While it's seen rapid development in recent decades, Cambrils still retains its historic Old Town and a laid-back air that makes for the perfect relaxing vacation spot. You'll want to bring your appetite when you head to your Cambril vacation rental, because the town has garnered quite a reputation for being an up-and-coming culinary force in the region. Between tasty seafood and quality time on the golden sand beaches of Spain's Costa Daurada, it just might feel like heaven.

Come to Cambrils for the fresh salt breezes

If you're looking to spend some quality time at the beach, you won't be disappointed with a Cambrils vacation rental. Frolic in the sea, watch the sun rise, or just work on your tan, or you can explore further afield on foot, horseback, jeep, or ATV. Test the waters on a jet ski or one of the many pleasure cruises offered. Diving lets you see what's below the surface. To get to to know the town, opt for a rental bike or an organized bike tour. If you're looking for green space, Parque del Pescador is the place to go.

Modern fun in the heart of the Middle Ages

From the architecture buffs to the thrill seekers, there's something for everyone in your travel crew at a Cambrils vacation rental. The fascinating Old Town, huddled around a picturesque central harbor, is full of well-preserved medieval buildings, including the 14th-century monastery at Ermita de la Mare de Deu del Cami and two medieval towers—Torre de l'Ermita and Torre del Port. For the museum crowd, there's the History Museum of Cambrils and the Agricultural Museum of Cambrils. The young (or just young at heart) will enjoy a day at nearby PortAventura World, a Universal Studios theme park, and Aquopolis Costa Dorada water park.

Things are heating up on the Costa Daurada

Lovely Cambrils comes with mild winters and hot, dry summers. Cambrils vacation rentals are in highest demand in the peak summer months of July and August, when highs are typically in the 80s and the sun is shining on the beaches. You'll see temps in the 70s anywhere from May to October, and even in the coolest winter months of December to February, highs are still in the mid-50s. Winter lows might dip into the high 30s overnight, and this is when you'll see the most rainfall, so maybe pack an umbrella to be safe.

Where the golden sands glitter under the Spanish sun

Costa Daurada means gold coast in Catalan, and one look at the city's beaches will tell you why. The golden sands stretch for miles, creating a beautiful contrast against the deep blues of the Mediterranean Sea. The east-facing location makes for some jaw-dropping sunrises. If you head inland beyond the city center, the landscape slowly begins to rise to form the Catalanides ranges, which separates the coast from the country's interiors. The city's foodie reputation is thanks in part to its agricultural production, most notably fruit and olives.
