Villa Jacaranda, Tres Cales, L'Ametlla de Mar, Costa Dorada, Spain.

The Costa Dorada - the Golden Coast - is deserving of its name. The southern Catalonian coast has 92 kilometres of wide, sandy beaches and light blue sea, long stretches of dunes and many hidden coves. Many parts are very shallow so that you can wade out very far, making the Costa Dorada a very family-friendly destination. The climate is mild, sunny and consistent, turning the area into a very popular spot for water sports, camping and other outdoor activities. The local cuisine is renowned for its exceptional seafood, perhaps the best in all of Catalonia, and the area is home to the Roman ruins in Tarragona (a World Heritage Site), the unique flora and fauna of the Montsant and Prades mountain ranges and the amusement park Port Aventura.

Perhaps the least spoilt stretch of Spain’s Mediterranean coastline, has largely been saved from the mass developments which have blighted so much of the coast over the last few decades. Secluded sandy coves and fishing villages set against a mountainous backdrop characterise the coast. The climate is stable, warm in winter but with distinct seasons.
