What to see in Cambrils? The best plans and tips to do in Cambrils
If you have the chance to visit Cambrils, do it! In this post we will tell you about different plans to make your visit to Cambrils a perfect experience.
Keep in mind these recommendations, here are the best plans:
Sunset in Cambrils: in front of the Parc de Pescadors, at one end of the port (there is a roundabout with a giant metal sail), you will see an access that leads to the red lighthouse of the port. It is a very pleasant area where you can see the fishing boats on one side, and a really spectacular sunset in Cambrils on the other.
Sunrise: at the other end of the port of Cambrils, next to the yacht club, is the access to the green lighthouse. Walking towards the sea there is a place to sit on the rocks and watch a beautiful sunrise in Cambrils.
Have a drink during the day: at the access to the green lighthouse of the port of Cambrils, you must go in until the end, you will find an open go, on the right hand you will see a bar with a terrace that very few people know, but it is an incredible place in Cambrils to have a drink watching the boats and the port, surrounded by calm even in July and August.
Bicycle tour: either on the classic bike or on the modern electric bikes. Cambrils has many kilometres of cycle paths that join the neighbouring towns along the coast, and the views are wonderful, ports, beaches, walks etc. If you don't bring your bike, don't worry, we recommend you rent a bike at El Drac Beach, they have 5 shops between Cambrils, Salou and La Pineda, you can rent a bike in one shop and leave it in another.
Ice cream time: the ideal time for ice cream in Cambrils is after dinner. In the center of the port of Cambrils you can go to the Gelateria Sirvent, buy your ice cream cone and right in front of it, next to the monument of the giant sirens, there are some stairs that go straight to the water. These stairs are called "escalales reials" (royal stairs), because that is where the kings land in Cambrils. There you sit and enjoy the ice cream and the atmosphere. You'll love that moment.
Cambrils Market: Wednesday mornings, from 8:00 to 14:00 in Cambrils. If you take the Parc de Pescadors as a reference, you will see that there is a stream next to it (landscaped, without water), you will have to go up against the sea on the other side of the stream for approximately 2 kilometres until you find the market. There is also the possibility of going by public transport, taxi or the Cambrils tourist train. We recommend that you take advantage of the end of your walk at the market to walk through the streets of the old town of Cambrils, it is very beautiful.
Shooping: in the interior streets of the port of Cambrils you will find many shops of all kinds, clothes, accessories, gifts, etc.
Sport: whether by bike, on foot, on skates or whatever, go for a walk in Cambrils to keep fit. We recommend you to go from the port of Cambrils to the promenade that goes to the urbanizations and beaches of Horta de Sta. Maria, La Llosa, La Dorada etc. They are very beautiful, quiet and safe areas.
Going to the beach: all the beaches of Cambrils are beautiful and have their charm, but we propose 2 plans to see what you like best:
Do you want fine sand, to play football or beach volleyball? Go to the main beach, here they call it the Mc Donald's beach. It is big and very crowded, but there is a lot of space of fine sand to play any sport without bothering anyone.
Or do you prefer more tranquillity and searching among the rocks? Go to the beach of the urbanization La Dorada. There the beaches are U-shaped with the rocky jetty on each beach. Some small oasis of palm trees that give shade might make your day at the beach a perfect relaxation experience.
