Coma-ruga is a town on the Costa Daurada with 7 kilometres of coastline, which is a highly sought after destination among Spanish families. A short distance away you will find other tourist towns, such as El Vendrell and Calafell, while Tarragona is 20 kilometres away, and Barcelona is 80 kilometres away. Coma-ruga's beach is 2,010 metres long and 110 metres wide. It is a sandy, urban beach with all kinds of services and facilities, including a marina and a sailing club. Situated 3.5 kilometres from the town, the beaches in the fishing districts of Sant Salvador and El Francàs are some of the region's main attractions. The coast is low, straight and formed by beaches of fine sand. The peace, quiet, clear waters and pleasant sea temperature combine with the high percentage of iodine in these waters at this point on the Costa Daurada to make them especially healthy. Since 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 for sunbathing and enjoying water sports. The beach promenade still has some old noucentisme houses and old liquor warehouses. Shortly before you reach the old Sant Joan de Déu Hospital (which is now a five-star hotel) you will find Les Madrigueres, which is a natural space used by a large number of migratory birds. Coma-ruga Beach is home to La Masia Blanca Marine Reserve. This submerged space is typical of sandy beaches with a gentle gradient. The fauna and flora it tries to protect are largely representative of more than half of Catalonia's coastline.
