Nestled between the resorts of Torredembarra and Calafell lies the little seaside retreat of Coma Ruga. This scenic area is an ideal spot for those who want a more low key holiday or who are searching for a picturesque base camp from where to explore the delights of the Costa Dorada.
Hot spring creek in Coma Ruga
Running to the salt water of the Mediterranean Sea is a hot spring creek which is said to have therapeutic properties, so much so that it has been declared of public interest for its health properties by the Royal Academy of Medicine and Surgery of Barcelona. You can take a dip in the creek yourself or if you prefer your dip to be more pampered then stay or have a spa day at the local Balneario Playa Coma-Ruga Spa Hotel.
Visit a vineyard on your holiday in Coma Ruga
Close by in Sant Salvador you will find the Pau (Pablo) Casals Museum. Originally the summer villa of the famous cellist and composer, it was renovated to become a museum to honor his work and memory. A little further inland will bring you to the locally famous vineyards of Cellers Avgvstvs Forvm where you can tour and sample their very fine wines and vinegars. The resort also has two very nice beaches, Coma ruga beach and Sant Salvador.
