The small town of Altafulla is a 20 minute walk along the beach, or a short drive from the campsite, where you will find a supermarket, bars and some restaurants. You will also find there is a train station in Altafulla, about 1.5km from the campsite, which is ideal if you want to explore the area, for example Tarragona (one stop away), Salou, Port Aventura theme park and Barcelona. Some noise may be heard from the trains from some emplacements.
This is a lively site so on occasion you can hear noise of entertainment and discos until quite late, so it may be an idea to pack some ear plugs ! The sandy beach is excellent and clean and the site itself is clean and you can eat at the restaurant overlooking the beach or at a less formal restaurant overlooking the pool. The Tamarit Park resort campsite is well placed for exploring Barcelona, Tarragona, Sitges etc.
If you are going to drive then here are the distances from the Channel Ports / Northern Spain:
If you are interested in seeing the fantastic architecture of this town then its worth the journey.
