Calella Introduction

Calella, a short drive from Barcelona airport, is a popular resort on the Costa Brava. Once a tiny fishing village, Calella has developed into a thriving holiday centre offering good weather, sandy beaches and modern facilities. It is a family resort with a fairly lively nightlife.

Why go to Calella

Calella provides all the ingredients for a relaxing holiday by the sea. It offers good weather, clean sandy beaches, a pleasant water temperature and many water sporting opportunities. Numerous bars, cafes, discos and restaurants provide a lively nightlife.

A Calella holiday is very popular with both the British and the Spanish. The Spanish flock to the coast to escape the heat of nearby Barcelona. With its golden sands Calella is an ideal destination for families with small children. The more energetic visitor will enjoy a wide range of water sports.

When To Go To Calella

April to October is the best time to visit Calella when the temperature ranges from 20 degrees rising to 30 degrees in the summer months.

Calella - The Place

Viewed from the sea, Calella is an attractive resort surrounded by low pine covered hills. The heart of Calella is the original fishing village with its narrow winding streets and its tiny church. Many small craft and curio shops, so loved by tourists, can be found in this maze of cobbled streets.

The hotels and apartments, much of them high rise, are stretched along the sea front.

The beach is three kilometres of fairly coarse golden sand shelving into clear water. Care must be taken with children as the water quickly becomes deep. There are a variety of water sports on offer including wind surfing and water skiing. A promenade planted with shady pines lines the beach. Here you will find many bars and small restaurants offering sustenance throughout the day.

Calella enjoys its fiestas and seems to celebrate one each month with lively music and dancing in the street.

A coastal railway runs a regular service each day from Gerona to Barcelona. A good way to explore the ‘wild coast’, the literal translation of Costa Brava, is to take a boat trip and see the wonderfully varied coastline from wide sandy beaches to tiny rocky coves and towering cliff faces.

Calella Nightlife

Calella’s nightlife is fairly low key with most entertainment being hotel based. The Spanish love their fiestas and Calella appears to have its fair share. At least once a month the streets are alive with musicians and dancers. There is the occasional lively club with foam parties.

Calella Shopping

Calella has the usual supply of souvenir and gift shops. There is also a weekly market where you can purchase your holiday mementoes. For serious shoppers Barcelona is only a short train ride away.

Calella Eating

Calella has many bars and restaurants providing a diverse cuisine to cater for all tastes. Whatever you fancy from tapas to fast-food or from traditional Catalonian to Chinese or kebabs, Calella will provide. Enjoy lunch with sangria overlooking the sea or relax with dinner accompanied by local wines in the atmospheric old quarter.
