About thirty people look for a treasure on the beaches of Salou
More than thirty people from Salou participated yesterday in the family orientation activity “The treasure hunt”, organized by the company Entrecamins. An entertaining game that consisted of using a map to find the gifts buried in the sand on Els Pilons beach and which was part of the autumn program of "Salou, beach all year", an initiative of the Tourist Board and the Department of Beaches: Quality and Plan of Uses.
Families with children between the ages of 3 and 14 started the free activity from Francesc Germà square. There Carles Sanromà was waiting for them, who handed them out a sheet with questions and blank boxes and a couple of maps indicating where the 18 beacons were that had been distributed at various points on the Llevant and Camí de Ronda beaches. When they arrived at the marked site, they had to use a pair of tweezers to mark the corresponding box, thus obtaining a code that would allow them to decipher the phrase, with the help of a compass, which would reveal where the treasure was buried. In addition, they had to answer some questions about Salou whose answers were found in some of the beacons marked in a different color.
“We do this activity in many places. It is a game that combines physical activity with the natural environment and cognitive exercise. It is a very complete activity”, pointed out Sanromà.
Families also valued this action positively. “This is the first time we have participated in a treasure hunt. It is very good that they do this type of activity on Sunday », said Roberto, who participated with his two children.
Enjoy the beach
The 'Salou, beach all year round' program wants to enhance the municipality's beaches outside the summer season. The next activity will be a guided tour through the history of the town, on Sunday, November 27.
