Tarragona's Platja Llarga (Long Beach) can be found between Capellans and Cala Fonda beaches. Stretching almost three kilometres, it is the city’s and the Costa Daurada’s longest beach. Not far from the N-340 main road, Llarga Beach has fine, golden sands that slope very gently into the calm, warm, crystal-clear waters of the Mediterranean.
Llarga Beach is also home to areas of great natural importance, including a wetland and sand dunes designated a Habitat of Community Interest and protected by the European Union. There is another nature reserve at the northern end of the beach protected under the Punta de la Móra Special Natural Interest Plan. The beach is also close to La Marquesa Woods, a refuge of native Mediterranean vegetation.
Easily accessible by car, public transport and on foot via the spectacular coastal footpath, Llarga Beach offers several services that make it very popular, especially with families. The facilities include car parking areas, restaurants, beach bars, beach sports and water sports. It also has walkways and assisted bathing with amphibious wheelchairs.
