Costa Dorada Tourism & Golf Costa Dorada, which means the golden coast is the stretch of coastline along the province of Tarragona on the eastern side of Spain. It is known for its wide golden sandy beaches by the beautiful promenades lined with pine trees, crystal clear waters and the silhouette of the Roman ruins covering the region. Tarragona is both a province and a town in the region of Catalonia, which unfolds around the Mediterranean Sea. The town is rich with historical splendours including medieval walls and the remains of a Roman aqueduct. Salou is one of the main holiday resorts in Tarragona. Amongst other things, it is also home to one of the largest theme parks in Europe – Port Aventura. With direct flights into Reus Airport, Tarragona is the ideal holiday destination for both families and groups of golfers. There are seven golf courses in the Costa Dorada. Lumine boasts three of these courses – Lumine Lakes, Lumine Hills and Lumine Ruins. 170 hectares has been devoted to these courses and two club-houses cater for golfers every need.
