Miami Playa scattered along the length of the Seafront promenade has a children’s park facing the sea and in the height of the summer there are trampolines, ice creams kiosks and bars scattered along the beach itself.
This is a beach which is never packed. There is always space to spread out and even in August, the busiest time of the year, you can position yourself at the waters edge. The beach is kept very clean. Sundowners and deck chairs are available throughout the summer for a small charge, although you are advised to take your own parasol.
There are plenty of bars and restaurants where you can either snack or have a full meal. The quality of food and service is good in the majority of the beach you can choose to eat on the sun terrace, or in the air conditioned covered area. This is a popular restaurant and can sometimes be busy.
The bars and restaurants along the promenade are very traditionally Spanish (you won’t find any fish and chips on offer and pints of beer). Most menus are available in English, Spanish, French, German and Catalan.
There are many coves that can be accessed too. These are at the entrance to Miami Playa from Cambrils (under the railway) and are only accessed by steps.
There are several supermarkets in Miami Playa, the largest being Esclat which you will find on the left hand side of the national road heading towards If you are planning to pay with a credit card in the supermarket you WILL NEED a form of ID, usually a passport, and remember that the majority of the smaller shops close between 1.30 and 5.00 for the siesta. They do stay open until 8 or 9.
The nearest hospital is in Reus. The chemists in Spain ( Farmacia) will usually be of much help should you need medication for a sore throat, tummy upset etc. Within Miami there are doctors and dentists who you can – some of them speak English, some of them dont. It is worth familiarising yourself with where they are based and when they are available.
Visiting them at the beginning of the holiday as you can pick up discount vouchers for the main attractions and details of local walks in the mountains.
Bikes are available for hire in Miami Playa

Just returned from our second visit to Casa Edith May, an excellent week equally enjoyed by whole family. Everything you could wish for is here. Fab amenities, great terrace and pool. Lovely decor, close to shops and the wonderful crystal beach. We travelled by train to barcelona for a day of shopping. Great location in this lovely area of Spain. Hope to visit again soon.
Thank you so much for your lovely review!

Even at the end of the Summer season this delightful villa was brilliantly prepared and presented and felt fresh as a new pin. Booking the villa was totally straight-forward and the owner went out of her way to be helpful with advice on local amenities and attractions both before and during our stay. The villa was well equipped and everything worked as it should.
The villa itself is a joy, set in a spacious enclosed garden in a quiet neighbourhood of similar quality villas. A screen of trees gives privacy to the pool and terrace without blocking the sun or views. The upstairs bedroom with terrace has views over roof tops toward the sea and you can watch the sun rise each morning without leaving your bed.
There are plenty of restaurants and supermarkets within easy reach by car or on foot. As well as the beach we enjoyed trips up into the nearby National Park at Pratdip, to the historic quarter of Tarragona and further afield to Barcelona.
A brilliant holiday in every way.
So glad you enjoyed your stay and thank you for such a fantastic review.
