Rough sea?


does anyone know if the ocean in front of playa dorada is normally rough or calm at the end of april? hoping to go to iberostar.

thanks y’all


Technically, the Iberostar isn’t in Playa Dorada, but just outside it in Costa Dorada (along with the Marien). OK, it is the ocean but the waves should be just great for playing in. I understand you’ll be traveling with young children. You’ll have to keep a constant eye on them regardless of the wave size. There’s a lot of reefs offshore so unless there’s a storm, the waves shouldn’t be dangerous.

I don’t recall seeing many people actually swimming anyway. They go in, bob up and down, play in the waves and splash each other. They have a good time, but they don’t really swim a whole lot. ;D


Nothing says it better than a picture.
I believe this is a recent shot of the beach in front of the Iberostar and the Marien.
