Awake to an overcast day. Around 11:00 we drop lines and head out, there is not a lot to do around Torredembarra!  Outside the marina and around the point the seas are 2m and sharp, with a wind gusting F6 it is not pleasant so we head just up the coast to Roda de Barra (41:10.09N, 001:29.08E) where there is a large marina.  The marina turns out to be calm and nearly empty so we go stern too to a concrete pontoon at 13:30. We spend the afternoon walking around and exploring.  There is an interesting development just south of the marina up on a point, with restaurants and holiday flats where we find our evening meal.  There is also a coastal path that leads from here back to Torredembarra which is very pretty for the first couple of miles. North of the marina is not so attractive but there are a few shops and a supermarket within a reasonable walk.
