The coastal region extends from Cunit in the north to L'Hospitalet de l'Infant in the south. The coast consists of beaches and rocks.

Also on the Costa Daurada is the provincial capital of Tarragona, with the remains of the Roman city of Tarraco, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. In Salou and Vila-seca is the PortAventura World resort.
