Tarragona: Cala Fonda Waikiki

Address Cala Fonda; 43008 Tarragona
Neighbourhood La Mora | See on map
Notes Take AP-7 in direction of Tarragona and València, then exit 32 towards Torredembarra/Altafulla. Follow N-340 to La Mora and signs towards Camping Torre de la Mora. Park the car near the intersection of Carrer Baix Camp and Carrer Baix Llobregat. Follow forest trail that starts at this intersection. Waikiki is the second cove.

Heading south towards Tarragona, the beaches become wider and sandier and, being further away from the temperamental weather fronts caused by the Pyrenees, with more reliable sunshine.

You can reach the main beaches in Tarragona, Salou and Cambrils by train but it’s recommendable to go by car, as you can then get to some of the real gems like Cala Fonda – or Waikiki as it’s popularly known – which feel more like the rugged coves of Costa Brava. Bring a cooler with drinks and a packed lunch as there are no vendors on the beach itself.
