Salou is home to many attractions to keep all the family entertained during your holiday. Importantly, due to COVID-19, summer 2020 is likely to be the quietest holiday season in decades. Fewer people means more space to explore and a more relaxing atmosphere for your visit. PortAventura World opened on 8th July and is taking a limited amount of visitors per day. Similarly, other attractions open for visitors are Electric Karting Salou, Bosc Aventura, Quantum Escape and a wide range of water activities. But don’t forget the evening entertainment, with live music and events at Houdini’s Attic and House of Illusion. 

3. Stunning beaches and clear water

One positive outcome of COVID-19 lockdowns around the world has been the visible improvement of natural spaces. Salou and the Costa Daurada are no exception. Take it from us, the seawater is cleaner and clearer than we have ever seen it. In addition, this summer the beaches across the country have a limited capacity. However, with almost 10 km of beaches and bays across Salou, you are almost guaranteed to have your own space in which to relax and enjoy the Mediterranean breeze.

4. The perfect weather
