The beach of Coma-ruga stretches for a distance of 2010 metres and is 110 metres wide. This is an urban, sandy beach that boasts all kinds of services and facilities, as well as a marina and a sailing club.
Situated within 3.5km of the town, the beaches of Sant Salvador, Coma-ruga and El Francàs are some of the area's main attractions.
The coast, which measures around seven kilometres in length, is low-lying, straight and formed by beaches of fine sand. The beaches in this area of the Costa Daurada boast calm, clear waters, a pleasant sea temperature and a high iodine concentration that affords these waters particular health benefits.
Since the year 1988, the coast of El Vendrell has boasted Blue Flag status. It is often considered one of the best beaches in Catalonia. El Vendrell is a great place if you're looking to go sunbathing or you wish to enjoy some water sports. The beachfront promenade still features some nineteenth century houses and old brandy storehouses.
Just before you reach the old Sant Joan de Déu Hospital (which is nowadays a five-star hotel), you will come across Les Madrigueres, which is a natural space used by large numbers of birds during their migratory phases.
Coma-ruga Beach has La Masia Blanca marine reserve, a submerged space with a gentle slope typical of sandy beaches. The fauna and flora it aims to protect are representative, generally speaking, of over half the Catalan coast.
