About Torredembarra To Tarragona Coast Walk:

This is an 18Km linear costal walk via the GR92 starting from Torredembarra on the regional train network.

The route terminates in Tarragona passing via Tamarit Castle with some interesting small coves and large beaches in between.

Allow 6-9 hours to complete the route depending on how much time is spent swimming.

From RENFE Torredembarra walking along to the seafront to the marina take the path going up parallel to the coastline and follow it to the Punta de la Galera lighthouse and viewpoint. Further along the path is a headland viewpoint of Playa de Capellans i Canyadell. The rocks here have some ponds cut into them that are Roman Fishing pits.

Staying parallel to the coast on the waterfront path pass a ruined stone building and get to the town of Altafulla. This town was once a Roman settlement called Vila dels Munts. Today it is ruins with a museum.

Crossing the spectacular beach and passing by the old concrete bunker we see Tamarit castle. This is not open to the public but does rent space for events such as weddings.

Follow the path round the back of the castle passing some caves and ruins and head on towards la Mara beach. At the other side walk through the campsite to the stone watch tower and take the path leading into the forest.

Along this path is Cala Waikiki beach. A fantastic remote place with a gently sloping beach and perfect clear blue water. This is not the typical tourist beach in a town that is manned by lifeguards and suffering from litter and niose but a hiden gem and secret beach

Next we enter Playa larga or long beach. Aptly named as it streches for several kilometers and has many restaurants, bars and cafes. Last time I completed this route I ate at Mirall d' Estiu Restaurant.

At the other end we climb out of the beach onto a rocky path parrllel to the coast and taking us via several small beaches before the abandoned Hospital de Arrabassada. This is closed to the public and patrolled by security.

Hospital de Arrabassada has a dark history. It was a tuberculosis hospital and also a hospital for soldiers during the civil war then an orphanage where children were reportedly abused. There have been plans to restore it but no one can decide what to do with the buildings.

Continuing along the coast we follow the rock path passing a few more viewpoints before arriving at Tarragona.
