Leisure in Tarragona

Parks and gardens

For a relaxing afternoon, to read a book, to go for a stroll, to do sport, to enjoy:

  • Parc Central de Tarragona
  • Camp de Mart
  • Plaça Imperial Tarraco
  • Passeig de les Palmeres
  • Passeig Marítim
  • Port del Serrallo
  • Archaeological walk around the city walls (entrance subject to opening times)


The golden Mediterranean beaches and the beautiful natural landscapes, such as the wild reserve of Gaià, are another of the many attractions.

Tarragona offers you the chance to play all types of water sports. The Reial Club Nàutic has a large marina and the Club de Vela Platja Llarga is a place where you can train light sailing sports.

Platja del Miracle is a beach that occupies the whole waterfront of the city and Platja de l’Arrabassada, 3 miles north of the city, is an ideal place to go running.


Tarragona is characterized by bringing leisure to the streets. There are many areas with small bars and terraces, such as Plaça del Fòrum, and a jovial and relaxing atmosphere in the upper part of the city.

In the lower part, there is a party zone with musical bars and a hefty weekend programme, all year round, at places such as Sala Zero. There’s also a leisure area by the port, with different musical atmosphere for every taste.
