During the evening, the culinary delights of La Pineda Platja are unequalled and complemented by numerous activities and a nightlife that boasts concerts and outdoor cinemas, countless music bars and clubs, in addition to many other entertainment options.
The most characteristic feature of La Pineda Platja, besides its crystal-clear waters and pristine beaches that stretch almost 4 kilometres, is the tranquillity that surrounds the town. La Pineda beach is one of the best known of the Costa Dorada. The quality of the water and the various services available are just two of the reasons why this area has been awarded the Blue Flag eco-label by the Foundation for Environmental Education, certifying its respect for the environment.
The beach of La Pineda Platja is structured by the broad and spectacular promenade, where you will find the sculptures “Pineda” by Javier Mariscal and “Marca de Agua” by Sergi Aguilar.
La Pineda Platja combines its success as a busy tourism destination with a commitment to conserving the coastline and its ecosystems. As a result of this dedication, the most important assets of this Costa Dorada town are the landscape, environmental quality and tourist facilities.
Just 1 kilometre from the centre of Vila-seca, you can find cultural activities such as Torre d'en Dolça Public Park, spanning almost 37 hectares. At the very heart stands the 12th century Torre d'en Dolça tower, built by the ancient inhabitants to protect themselves against pirates. The park also has other attractions such as the remains of an Iberian settlement.
Another natural place of interest is the Sèquia Major. This wetland was donated in 1202 to the monks of Poblet monastery by King Pere I the Catholic. Due to its variety of fauna and diversity of the landscape, in 1992 it was officially recognised by the Government of Catalonia as an area of natural interest of 17.3 hectares.
