In the heart of the Costa Daurada, Cambrils is one of the most representative towns of the Catalan coast, but with direct access to places of interest inland. For the sportsman looking for a pleasant environment, with everything at hand, Cambrils is located between the sea and an abundant and fertile plain around, the mountains nearby and with a sign “open for sport 365 days a year”.
Here you can enjoy an ideal climate during the twelve months of the year, with mild summers and winters, not very strident in temperatures, which allow you to enjoy all kinds of sports in a perfectly suitable municipality, with all the elements that define a solid sports culture: entities with tradition and recognition, facilities, hotels and businesses for athletes of all types and a calendar of events with a wide range of sports.
A walk through the sports facilities in Cambrils
The municipal environment of Cambrils has a map of sports facilities that opens the door to all kinds of sports.
The Cambrils soccer field is located in the Sports Zone, near the new train station, in a large and clear area, with enough space for three soccer fields with dimensions ranging from 105×68 meters to 91×62 meters. The facility is modern, less than fifteen years old and seats up to one thousand spectators.
Next to the three soccer fields, in the same Cambrils Sports Zone, the athletics track puts the focus on the most demanding training with a ring with eight lanes to compete, two areas for shot put, a cage for the hammer and discus, two long jump pits, a high jump area and a pole vault area. All complemented with a gymnasium and multipurpose room.
The Cambrils Sports Pavilion is a centrally located building with two covered pavilions and a synthetic surface for sports such as basketball, soccer and handball, not to mention its heated swimming pool in two versions, 25x16m and 16x8m, along with a gym and rooms for supervised activities.
In the Pinaret Park, Cambrils has its climbing wall, a 15-meter high wall with different degrees of difficulty. An archery range and a skatepark complete the visit.
Cambrils beach, a place to enjoy the sport
Cambrils facilities are close to the beach with the Streetball court that includes three 3×3 basketball courts plus another mini-basketball that puts sporting atmosphere in the middle of the Paseo de las Palmeras.
The beach is an asset as long as the municipality, highly appreciated for nautical activities but also for recreational activities linked to the sea. Among these spaces, it is interesting the concentration that occurs in the Platja del Regueral, nautical base of Cambrils, with other activities related to the sea, but also with the sand, especially beach volleyball, there we can enjoy tournaments such as university championships and championships of Catalonia, also in the Regueral beach you can play beach soccer matches, beach tennis and beach handball.
Natural and unique environments for running and cycling
For running lovers, apart from the athletics stadium, Cambrils offers a couple of very pleasant areas for running. The seafront of Cambrils is nine kilometers long, with a wide variety of landscapes and terrains, from terrazzo to land. Along the promenade there are training areas.
The other option is the Pinaret Park, which is more pleasant in the central hours of the day, as it is a park with a generous grove of trees. There are 48,000 square meters for a 2.3 kilometer circuit on a “friendly” surface for the runner as it is the land.
You will also be able to opt for stops in the calisthenics equipment areas along the promenade and other areas of the municipality to perform complementary exercises.
Surely in some of these scenarios the runner will come across cyclists, in fact the promenade has a bike path that extends to other areas of the municipality. Cambrils is in fact a real paradise for cyclists, the proximity routes in the municipal environment offer an extensive variety of trails and streams for mountain biking and for families or those who want to go out nearby.
For “gourmet cyclists”, lovers of long-distance cycling on the road, Cambrils is the real cycling hub of the Costa Daurada with a menu to suit all tastes. From Cambrils we have direct departure to the Priorat, a region of sublime landscapes and perfect roads to ride, the mountains of Prades and Mussara, hardness on the menu, and plains where to crush the time trial towards the Ebro Delta, in the south.
But the sporting landscape of Cambrils would not be complete if we do not take into account the sports entities of a wide variety of sports, from the best known and most popular to specific sports such as archery and even dance sports, with an annual event of international level that puts the town on the world map.
