Want to getaway to the sunny coast of Spain to escape the unpredictability of a British summer, but think you can’t afford it? There are many ways you can make a holiday happen on the cheap, as this guide to doing Salou on a budget will reveal to you.

Let’s see how we can make it happen…

Lock up a cheap place to stay

There are plenty of cheap hotels in Salou where you can minimize your lodging expenses, freeing up plenty of capital for the things that matter when you go on holiday.

One of the best value resorts here is none other than Catalonia Gardens, as their official status as a holiday apartment complex allows them to price their rooms below the competition, making it a great spot for those seeking to save some cash.

Because of this, they come with all the amenities that one would expect from a place to live, which includes a kitchenette and fridge, a proper living room (complete with a pullout bed), and a private bedroom for the parents or a couple looking to have a getaway for less.

While this compound lacks some of the bells of whistles that more pricey resorts have, the exterior boasts a pool, giving you an alternative from the ocean on days where you don’t feel leaving the property.

Experience rich cuisine without breaking the bank

Being a resort area where visitors typically aren’t afraid to throw around money like there is no tomorrow, it can be hard to find a restaurant in Salou that delivers value for the budget traveler.

Linda’s Bar is one of those rare establishments, as they pull out all the stops to create a family friendly environment where good, home-cooked food is prepared and sold at a reasonable price.

They specialize in British pub food and other international favorites, making it a great spot to go in for a full English breakfast before a long day of physically demanding activities.

Activities that will maximize the fun per dollar/pound spent metric

If you are really short on dough, you can still enjoy your time in Salou without shelling out tons of cash for water sports and amusement park tickets.

Firstly, while the coast around this resort town is surrounded by many gems when it comes to stunning seaside escapes, experiencing the buzz of Llevant Beach is high on the lists of many tourists.

Clean sands, warm water, and easy access to cheap snacks, drinks and sunbeds make it a must see on your first few days here.

Active families will also enjoy the numerous arcades & go-kart tracks that can be found throughout the waterfront area, and the illuminated fountain makes for a great hang out spot after dark for visitors and locals alike.
