Hidden away in the back streets is where you will find the best restaurants and authentic tapas bars.

There are 9 beaches around Salou but the main two flanking the promendae are called Ponent and Llevant. They stretch for around 2 miles all the way up to Cambrils with chiringuitos beach shacks serving snacks and drinks throughout the day.
