Date & Location
The BULA & WFDF 2013 European Championships of Beach Ultimate (ECBU2013) will take place in Calafell Beach (Tarragona, Spain). Calafell is a large beach resort particularly geared up for young families and is located in the Costa Dorada, 60 km south of Barcelona. It has 5 km long beach that was one of the first in Catalonia to be awarded Blue Flag status in 1992. The beach is 100m wide, has beautiful golden sand and is made up of three separate beaches.
From Girona airport you can also come by public transportation (bus plus train). It will cost you around 15€ but it will take you 2h30 to get to Calafell. If you have a drivers permit the best option is probably car rental.The proximity from Barcelona (45Km), Reus (35km) and Girona (150km) airports makes it easy and relatively cheap to access from everywhere in Europe, as several low cost airlines operate in these airports. Flying to the vicinity of Calafell is easy and getting there from the airports is also fairly simple. For around 5€ you can get to Calafell from both Reus and Barcelona airports in approximately 60 to 90 min using the excellent available bus and/or train services. Taxi or car rental are obviously viable options but don’t forget to ask for a price quote before entering a taxi as they can be expensive.
Apart from these possibilities, the tournament’s organization will also provide bus transfers from both Reus and Barcelona airports, at an affordable rate. More details here.
