Where do you pay € 1,20 for a coffee, beer or wine on a terrace or have a three course menu between € 10, – and € 20, – including drinks?
El Perelló is located 7 km from the fishing / beach resorts L’Ampolla and L’Ametlla de Mar, where you will find beautiful large and small beaches. Even in high season it is not full and outside the school holidays it is remarkably quiet.
The nature and beaches in this area are not spoiled by mass tourism because of the protected coast and the three large national parks: Ebro Delta, Els Ports and Priorat. Here you can relax on the beach, practice all kinds of water sports, fishing, hiking and biking. Families with children can go to Port Aventura near Salou, the sea aquarium in Valencia, the honey museum in El Perelló or the eco museum in Deltebre. For evening entertainment young people can go to the discos of L’Ampolla, L’Amettla de Mar or Amposta. And…. for shopping or culture you can always visit Barcelona, Valencia, Reus, Tarragona or Tortosa.
In short: Enjoy the real Spain with its overwhelming nature, quiet beaches, cheap cafes and friendly people.
