Tamarit / Tarragona - Between nature and history
Tamarit is an old coastal village located on a rocky promontory, in a natural environment of great beauty, between the Gaià Rivermouth and the Bosc de la Marquesa, a lovely native forest next to the sea.
Its hiking routes, dream beaches, monuments and its history make it the perfect destination for nature lovers.
Beaches and Coves
The Tamarit Beach, about 8 km from the Tarragona city centre, is characterized by its serenity, away from the hustle and bustle. It is located next to the Gaià rivermouths and connects with the Altafulla beach. It has showers and is certified with the Blue Flag.
Cala Jovera is a small cove that offers stunning views of the Castle of Tamarit. It is one of the wild beaches of Tarragona, it only has access on foot through the castle road and has no services.
La Mora Beach is perfect for families, quiet and safe, without height differences in the sea. It is a small semi-urban beach surrounded by vegetation and rock formations.
In the Bosque de la Marquesa we find the other 2 wild beaches of Tarragona. La Cala Fonda, (naturist) also called Waikiki for its likeness to the Hawaii beaches, and the Cala de la Roca Plana. Only accessible on foot from the Camino de Ronda.
