L?Ametlla de Mar is a charm fishing village on the Costa Dorada at the south of the province of Tarragona that offers its visitors the chance to enjoy unforgettable holidays in a unique and privileged setting.
L'Ametlla de Mar preserves in every part of its streets the charm that is typical of traditional Spanish fishing villages. There are many coves and cliffs spread along its 14km of coast line, these form spectacular scenery, and believe it or not, it is still possible to find practically untouched beaches. The municipality has been awarded by the European Union with six ?Banderas Azules? (Blue flags awarded to the cleanest beaches and ports) five for its beaches, and one for its marina, making it the best destination on the Costa Dorada. From next summer the Torrent del Pi beach will become a nudist beach and the Bon Caponet beach will allow pets.
We have to highlight the rich and varied traditional cuisine, made up of exquisite dishes based on fresh fish and seafood that you can try in any one of the well known restaurants in town, as well as in the yearly cooking competitions like the ?Diada de l?arrossejat? or the ?Diada de la fideuada?.
While in the municipality you can visit the ?Museo de Cerámica Popular? (a traditional ceramic museum) that houses the most important private collection in Europe, the ?Castell de Sant Jordi? (Saint Jordi?s castle) which is a fortress that was built in the 12th century to defend the coast from pirate attacks. You can also do a cultural and historical walk around the fortifications built during the civil war.
The coast?s marine landscape, with its sharp and abrupt rocks favours unbeatable conditions for scuba diving and other water sports.
