Travel Guide La Pineda


The coastal neighbourhood of La Pineda belongs to the town Vila-seca. Due to its tourism and geographical location on the coast, La Pineda is often talked about as an independent area.

Tourism in La Pineda: Sun – beach – total relaxation

It is easy to sum up La Pineda in just a few words: The ideal holiday destination with numerous apartments, a few hotels, bars, restaurants (see: Restaurants La Pineda) and shops. The esplanade, which in some places rises to several metres above the beach, gives you great views of the beach and sea, right up to the port in the region’s capital Tarragona to the north.

La Pineda is located directly behind the Cape of Salou and only has 2500 inhabitants during the winter. However, thanks to its tourism, there are plenty of bars, restaurants and leisure areas – the majority of them on the seafront, like almost everything in La Pineda. Some are open all year round, this being thanks to La Pineda’s privileged climate.

La Pineda: fun and leisure

After having taken a walk along the esplanade Passeig Marítim and the beach, you still haven’t seen all there is to see in La Pineda. You still have to pay a visit to “Aquópolis”, a water park that is well-known throughout the region of La Pineda thanks to its wide range of spectacular slides and, what’s more, its dolphinarium. This can be visited separately from Aquópolis. Dolphin and seal shows are held several times a day. Numerous pools of varying sizes and depths, with or without waves, make up the rest of the park. Aquópolis has a fair few green areas for picnicking or taking a break, which are partially shaded.

Nightlife in La Pineda...

Another tourist attraction in La Pineda is “Pacha”, claimed to be the biggest nightclub on the whole of the Costa Dorada (see: Nightlife La Pineda). When you arrive at a coastal town like La Pineda, which is not very big, you don’t expect to find a show like the one you do in Pacha, with the continual coming and going of the best national and international DJs.

To see other shows in La Pineda, it’s worth going to Passeig Pau Casals. There you can find an entire row of restaurants and pubs right on the seafront. During the warmer months, there is always a lot of hustle and bustle, although it is mainly the younger generation that goes to have a great time in the lively atmosphere of La Pineda.

Conclusion: La Pineda doesn’t hide the fact that it is a small town. The main attractions as far as tourism is concerned are the beautiful, wide sandy beaches (see: Beaches La Pineda) as well as the cleanliness of its waters. Tourists in search of sun, sea, sand, rest and fun won’t regret coming to La Pineda.

Those who fancy going on excursions, be they nature or culture lovers, or trying out water sports, can visit any of the towns surrounding La Pineda, such as Salou (see: Salou travel guide), Cambrils (see: Cambrils travel guide), Tarragona, Miami Platja (see: Miami Platja travel guide) and Reus.
