A sea of family activities in Cambrils
The historical tourist tradition of Cambrils and how its has adapted to become a family holiday destination make this town on the Catalan coast a safe bet for people with children, in terms of both accommodation and activities. Quality facilities and services adapted to the needs of families mean visitors can enjoy an exciting holiday for the little ones with activities designed especially for them. The beaches of Cambrils are especially recommended for children, thanks to them having a gentle slope into the sea, calm and shallow waters with lifeguard services, and the possibility of asking for identification bracelets for children.
If visitors want to spend more than one day here, they can take advantage of the wide range of accommodation adapted to family needs, including family and connecting rooms, playgroups and spaces with entertainment activities; or opt for camping, which has an added appeal for kids. Once on site in Cambrils, visitors will find information for walking or cycling routes along the coast, taking advantage of the network of flat bike lanes; alternatively, there are museum visits, traditional and popular festivals and more than 70 playgrounds with a wide range of games for kids to play.
The website www.naturetime.es lists all the elements necessary to create a personalised itinerary, as well as all the information and maps of the Parks Route, which has a monthly draw for the Cambrils Sports Area and three registrations for the family’s Start Trail running races. Without a doubt, however, the most interesting attraction for the little ones during the summer months are the scheduled water and nautical activities designed specifically for family audiences, or improvised activities that families can sign up for on the beaches.
Information on activities for families is also available at www.cambrils-turisme.com: four-hour fishing trips from the port from 95 euros; family sailing trips, with a Hobie Cat catamaran baptism included; and rowing or sea kayaking with a monitor, ending with a 15-minute ski-bob trip to the beach. For those who are not so daring, there are also catamaran, sailboat or ferry excursions from Cambrils, where you do not have to worry about anything, just enjoy the sea breeze as you sail across the calm Mediterranean waters.
