The best way to discover Cambrils
Cambrils is a town divided into two: the town, traditionally peasant and commercial, and the fishing area of the port.
Two areas that are separated from each other by approximately 1 kilometer. This reason makes the bicycle a great option to tour the town.
One of the most traditional bike rides is the bike lane, which runs along the entire coastline of Cambrils.
If we go west through the port area we will discover the Llosa beaches until we reach the Riudecanyes stream, where the urbanized area ends and the cultivated fields begin. From there you can enjoy wild rocky beaches, with much less people but without surveillance.
From the port area to the east, the bike path will take us to the neighboring town of Salou. During the tour we will pass through the entire Vilafortuny area, a residential area belonging to Cambrils that has some parks and the Vilafortuny Castle. A castle of the s. XI currently restored and dedicated to holding events and celebrations.
When you return to the port of Cambrils or before leaving, we recommend you to have an ice cream in the numerous ice cream parlors, although we certainly recommend Sirvent for the quality and variety of its ice creams.
For those who want to know the town and the old part, you must go up Paseo San Juan Bautista de la Salle to Calle Hospital. This street is the entrance to the Old Town. To the right we find the Plaza España where the old Town Hall was located. From there you can walk the small streets full of flowers like Calle Llobera, or discover some charming little shops like the Quin Cacau chocolate shop! and many others. Inside the town you will also find the church of Santa María.
Returning to the Paseo de San Juan Bautista de la Salle and following it in the direction of the mountain we find the Parque del Pinaret, a 4.5-hectare space divided into four spaces: a paved area for outdoor activities, a green classroom, a playground for the little ones and an area with a forest and a picnic area to take a break along the way, recharge your batteries or take a nap in the shade of the pine trees on hot summer afternoons.
Nature lovers can follow the walk up until we enter the Alforja stream. A tour of the stream that will make you discover a bit of the native vegetation between farms.
