Going by train to Cambrils from Barcelona airport

If you want to use the train you will have to go first to the Sants station in Barcelona and then take a regional train, an intercity or a talgo train to Cambrils. To get to the Sants station you have two possibilities: the airport train that leaves from terminal T2 and AEROBUS (the closest stop to the station is at Plaza Espanya which is 10-15 minutes by walk). If your option is the airport train and you arrive at T1 you can take a free bus shuttle that connects the two terminals.

Shuttle service - transfer by private taxi, minivan or bus
Without a doubt it is the fastest and most comfortable option, but also the most expensive one. However, increasing the number of passengers is cheaper than the train or bus line. And best of all, a driver waits for you at the terminal with a sign with your name on it. It accompanies you to the vehicle, parked next to the terminal, and from the parking of the transfer vehicles will take you to the door of your accommodation. Afterwards, you will only have to enjoy the beaches of Cambrils and its many tourist attractions.
