Kids friendly beaches of La Pineda

La Pineda Platja is one of the most kid-friendly beach destinations on the Costa Dorada, currently holding one of 15 Family Holiday Destinations seal of approval from the Catalan authorities. The perfect destination for families with young children.

With a flat coastline stretching from the lively town of Salou to the beautiful city of Tarragona and the fine golden sand covering the beach and the shallow crystal clear sea, makes it the perfect destination for a family holiday.

Enjoy the fresh sea breeze on an evening stroll along the 3 km striking promenade offering all kinds of amusements and activities, shops, bars, restaurants and cafes with kids meals for those who like to go out while on holiday in one of the many Holiday Rental accommodations in La Pineda.

The kids will have a blast at the playground "Pinar del Perruquet”, a child-friendly natural space, located on the beachfront and inspired by the main elements of nature: water, wind, light and earth. Enjoy a lovely evening with the whole family watching a movie at the open-air cinema at the park. Different sports activities are available during summer: zumba, volleyball, yoga, football and CrossFit. Check the time table at the local tourism office.

You cannot miss one of the most iconic symbols of La Pineda: Grup Escultòric “Pineda" a set of sculptures representing a pine grove. The 24 metre height and 130 tonne weight of the eight bronze pines, designed by artist Xavier Mariscal, add beauty to the seaside promenade and symbolise sustainability, planning and urban development. There are evening sports activities such as zumba, capoeira and body combat under the sculpture. This is a must do!

And don't forget to spend a day with the whole family at the Aquapolis Costa Daurada waterpark with dolphins, water slides and many entertainment events.

Undoubtedly, the primary allure of La Pineda is the large spotlessly clean sandy beaches that makes it a magnet for families and beach lovers. La Pineda playa is not one, but three vast expanses of golden sand melting together to create 3 km of one of the most scenic beaches you will find anywhere on the Costa Dorada.

Kilometers of golden beaches, endless swimming in the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean, building sand castles with the kids, or losing yourself in a good book while you relax on the beach.
