General advice

Just some brief general advice for when you holiday in Spain.

We advise you to arrange a travel insurance and make sure cancellation cover is in place. Better safe than sorry!

Make sure you have a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC). It covers you for emergency healthcare in Europe. The card is free of charge and you can apply for it online.

La Pineda has several supermarkets for all your needs. In Vila Seca, a 5 minute drive, you will find some bigger supermarkets, like Mercadona, Aldi and Lidl.

Even though it is safe to drink water from the tap we would recommend you to buy mineral water, just because it tastes a bit nicer.

Paying by debit card is not always possible in smaller shops, bars etc. So make sure to carry some cash and/or a credit card.
