Have you heard of Waikiki Beach Tarragona? It is a gorgeous beach south of Barcelona, next to Tarragona. The official name of this beach is “Cala Fonda”, but locals call it Waikiki Beach. It is a real paradise near Barcelona.
Either way, you will need to walk 15-20 minutes to get to Waikiki Beach in Tarragona from the starting point we mention below.
Unless you stay at Camping Torre de la Mora, then you will have the shortest walk. I created a small map below. Please have a closer look so you can find the way easily.
1. By Car
Going by car to Waikiki Beach is the easiest and most comfortable way.
Coming from Barcelona, you will have to drive to La Mora in Tamarit, Tarragona. This is the closest place you can park your car. From there, you will have to walk.
Check with Mr. Google bout the best way to reach Tamarit. He will give you all the indications.
For renting a car, I always recommend Discover Car Hire. It compares the bigger and smaller pages for renting a car. You can also get a cheaper insurance directly with them. Super easy!
2. By Train
Coming from Barcelona, you can take a train from Barcelona Sants to Altafulla – Tamarit. Check the train schedules here.
Once there, the best option might be a taxi or cab, as a car ride is just 15 minutes.
What about walking?
If you were thinking about walking from there, bear in mind it will be around one hour just to reach La Mora Beach. Then you must add the walking time from that beach to Waikiki Beach. That will take you around 20 minutes.
3. By Bus
Another option will be to take the bus from Tarragona. The bus leaves quite frequently.
Therefore, there is not anything you could buy water or food.
For this reason, pack enough water and food so you can spend the day without being interrupted by hunger.
In case you need to buy food and drinks, the nearest point is on La Mora Beach.
Obviously, you should bring also sun cream. There is basically no shadow at Waikiki Beach. An umbrella might be also a very clever idea to bring!
Cool idea: Put a 1.5liter bottle in the freezer the night before. Bring it with you to the beach. Since the water is frozen it will stay cold a longer time. A great and simple way to have cold, refreshing water.
