The coast

The coast is extremely varied. You have many bays, each with its own atmosphere. There are sandy and pebble beaches, some with amenities, others without. In one bay is fantastic for snorkeling, in another bay you can jump off the rocks, in another bay there  is a great restaurant. You keep discovering!

At various places you can rent canoes, pedal boats and snorkels, or go on fishing or diving trips out to sea.

Along the coast is also a beautiful, well signposted hiking trail, the GR92 (Grande Randonnée). Rough and incredibly beautiful.

The mountains

Casa Valerosa is surrounded by mountains. You can make beautiful walks, horseback riding, mountain climbing or a canyoning trip. Often you have beautiful views over the Ebror River and the delta and with a little luck you see deer shoot over the rocks.

Near El Perelló you walk in half an hour through a fairytale valley to prehistoric rock drawings. Upstream along the Ebro a visit to castle Miravet is definately worthwhile - and just as nice is the crossing over the Ebro with the ferry.

Via Verde is a cycling route along an old railway line and a must do. The simple route leads down and is therefore easy accesible for all ages. You cycle along fabulous rock formations, with a view of deep valleys and also through a few exciting tunnels. Halfway in between a picnic and a dive from the rocks at Font Calda are a must.

Ebro-delta

The Ebro Delta is a natural reserve and a paradise for bird lovers. More than 300 bird species are found here, including thousands of flamingos! It is one of the two areas in Europe where rice is grown. You can enjoy cycling or horseback riding, or you can book a boat excursion.  Here you will find endless sandy beaches, where you can also kitesurf.

The walk to the Far del Fangar lighthouse is unforgettable. You walk across an endless sand plain, with the deep blue Mediterranean Sea on the right, and a view of the mountains on the left.

Culinary

You can eat well here anywhere! From the simplest village cafe to high end restaurants, let yourself be pampered by the local tapas art! You won't have to search long for a good glass of wine either.

Culture

The villages of l'Ametlla de Mar and Ampolla have lively harbours, where you can see the fishing boats leave or enter from the terrace. Some larger cities are Tortosa, Tarragona and Reus, about half an hour drive from the campsite. Great for a summer day to wander around, enjoy the Spanish pace and visit some of the nice local markets. Tarragona is rightly famous for its Roman remains and its imposing cathedral. The cathedral of Tortosa is also worth a visit. Reus is the birthplace of Antoni Gaudí and has a small but very nice Gaudi museum.

A little further away is Peñiscola. With the impressive Temple Knights Castle from the early Middle Ages, built on a rock point in the sea, it is a very nice day trip.

Barcelona is located to the north at two hours drive and Valencia to the south at 2.5 hours. Both cities are also great to visit by train from l'Ametlla de Mar station.
