With just a 2 hour flight time from the UK into Reus airport, the Costa Dorada is easily accessible even for a short break. With temperatures that hit 30°C in July and August, boasting over 9 hours of sunshine a day, it's no wonder families return year after year. To the very north of Costa Dorada lies the cultural city of Barcelona, with its mesmerising Gothic quarter, famous architecture, designer shopping and upmarket bars and restaurants. Travelling south of Barcelona, you'll arrive in the coastal resort of Blanca.

Many affluent Spaniards built mansions here in the 19th century and a lot of those homes have now been converted into hotels. The area today is vibrant and cultural, popular with the gay community due to its invigorating nightlife, trendy bars and cafes, and close proximity to Barcelona.
