5 Reasons To Live In Cambrils (Spain)

Are you considering to move to Cambrils in Costa Dourada (Spain) but wonder what it will be like? Let me tell you my top 5 reasons why you are going to love this incredible place.

Cambrils is a coastal town in the province of Tarragona, Catalonia, Spain, with a rich history and a blend of both traditional fishing village charm and modern tourism.

It is approximately one hour south of Barcelona and fifteen minutes from Reus Airport.

1. Sensational Weather

If you truly want to enjoy the Mediterranean climate,  Cambrils is your place…mild winters and eternal summer days under the sun. Cambrils is known to have some sort of “microclimate” with soft temperatures in the winter and lots of light highlighting the blue sea and sky. 

My favorite: our spectacular sunsets, especially from October on,  when the sky turns pink and red, highlighting the beauty of the region and its scenic views. I invite you to witness one of these sunsets.  I guarantee it is a truly  memorable experience!


2. Gastronomie

Cambrils’ gastronomy is a delightful experience for food enthusiasts. The combination of fresh agricultural products and daily-caught fish from the local port is a hallmark of Mediterranean cuisine, known for its emphasis on high-quality, locally sourced ingredients. 

My favorite: Fresh Gamba roja (red shrimp), Necoras (velvet Crab) and fresh Mejillones (mussels). You can buy them daily at my favorite fish shop, Pescaderia Savall.

3. Life Is Goood In Cambrils

Cambrils is your ideal place if  you are seeking a more relaxed and peaceful way of life. Its proximity to natural attractions and cultural sites, along with easy access to transportation hubs, adds to its appeal. Here are some of the highlights:

  • Tranquil Lifestyle: enjoy a quieter life away from the hustle and bustle of big cities.  Enjoy  long walks on the beach or any other  outdoor activities like trekking or biking.
  • Wine Tastings:  a great way to explore the local wine culture, and the nearby wine regions in Catalonia.
  • Convenient Transportation: Reus Airport (15 min) and Barcelona Airport (1 hour) make it easy for both domestic and international travelers to access Cambrils.
  • Cultural Exploration:  Tarragona is 15 minutes away, a city recognized by UNESCO for its historical and architectural significance

In a nutshell, Cambrils combines natural beauty, cultural richness, and easy access to transportation.  A quiet place with  access to various amenities and cultural experiences.

4. High Quality Beaches

One of our most dear attractions …. our variety of beaches. 

With 13 kilometers of coastline, Cambrils provides so many beach options, from long, wide sandy stretches to coves with crystal-clear blue waters..

The fact that many of these beaches are not as crowded as those in other popular beach destinations in Spain plays a significant advantage, so you can enjoy a more relaxed and tranquil beach experience.

5. Real Estate Value

Here is the good news! … Cambrils is more affordable compared to some other coastal regions in Spain, such as the Costa Brava and Sitges, which makes it an attractive option for individuals and families looking for a more cost-effective way to enjoy a picturesque seaside lifestyle.  

Cambrils strikes a balance between offering a beautiful coastal environment and relatively more accessible property prices. This can be particularly interesting for those seeking to invest in a second home, retirees looking for a pleasant place to settle, or anyone who values a beachside living experience without breaking the bank.
