Live one of the most unforgettable moments of your stay in Salou and watch the stunning sunset that falls behind the mountains of the Costa Daurada
One of the must-have experiences on holiday is enjoying the natural wonder of a beautiful sunset and Salou is no exception. Whether you’re looking for a natural viewpoint, a way to enjoy it from the sea or a lively terrace to start the night, Mapilife can recommend the perfect spot for everyone.
From ‘Els Pilons’
The Pilons viewpoint – located at the end of Carrer Colom and Llevant Beach – is an iconic place to watch the sunset and appreciate the Salou’s skyline. Why not enjoy the show with one of the many terraces nearby with the best views of the city, the beach and the mountains of the Costa Daurada. These are our recommendations:
This terrace located just infront of Els Pilons monument is an ideal place to contemplate the descent of the sun thanks to panoramic views of the city. Have a premium cocktail or some Mediterranean tapas. A way to start the party or to enjoy an evening with the best vibrations in town.
Located also on Carrer Colom, this restaurant has a large terrace facing the sea. Ideal to enjoy the afternoon right through to the evening with local cuisine. They have a kitchen open all day and they offer a great selection of drinks, cocktails, and wines. A perfect place, for one of the best sunsets on the Costa Daurada.
This beach bar on Carrer Colom is perfect to watch the sunset on another fantastic day of holidays in Salou. A restaurant with an international menu, tapas, and creative sushi, it is is appreciated by locals and tourists alike. The young atmosphere makes this place an ideal place for parties, celebrations and summer breaks.
From the Coastal Path
During the evening the atmosphere in Salou becomes even more relaxed and magical. This is an ideal time to walk around the coast to see how the sun changes the colour of the mediterranean horizon. We recommend two of the best spots along the Camí de Ronda coastal path, with natural landscapes near the sea, ideal for watching this spectacle from the sky.
Mirador Punta del Po-Roig: Located halfway between the the Camí de Ronda, between Capellans beach and Cala dels Llenguadets. This viewpoint offers great views, ideal for panoramic photography of the city and enjoying the sunset on one of the wooden platforms in the surrounding area.
Mirador de la Punta del Cavall: One of the most spectacular views of Salou, located in Cap Salou and the final stretch of the Cami de Ronda. A natural place that invites you to lie down, enjoy the sea breeze and views of the Costa Daurada coastline. On days with good visibility it’s possible to see all the way to the Delta del Ebre.
From the sky
If you want to enjoy the most exclusive sunset from the sky, a great option is at the rooftop terrace of the Hotel Olympus in Salou. A terrace open to everyone with a unique pool, bar with signature cocktails and a restaurant with Mediterranean cuisine.
The roof top terrace of the hotel is one of the star experiences of Mapilife Salou. A unique place with 360 degree views of the city where you can contemplate the sunset with an exclusive and relaxed atmosphere accompanied by weekly live music and DJ’s. Discover what’s on here.
From the sea
Finally, Salou is the water activities capital on the Costa Daurada. Few of them are activities that you can enjoy the sunset from the sea. A unique holiday experience you will never forget.
This company offers a rental service of small boats without a license for a maximum of five people to take trips out to sea at your own pace. Taking a boat out in the late afternoon is a fantastic way to enjoy the sunset. More information here.
