    Close by is Cambrils to the south of Salou and Tarragona to north ,both by bus. Barcelona is one hour by train. All are worth a visit in my eyes. Take a look at my VT salou page if you wish

    Salou has nice a nice beach and the town itself is a tourist resort with plenty of bars and clubs full of drunk Brits.

    I highly recommend Tarragona, just to the north, for some rich Roman history and modern Catalan culture. It's a small city (maybe 150,000), the former Roman capital of Iberia, with lots of cool Roman ruins, a lively city center, a nice beach, a rambla for late night strolling, plenty of good places for dinner.
