All inclusive Calella holidays

Calella Overview

Built-up resort: Calella holidays are actually officially located in Costa del Maresme, 12km south of Malgrat de Mar where Costa Brava starts. Calella features some of the most popular holidays along this part of coastline and as such there are plenty of bars, restaurants and clubs to keep you entertained.

Beach holidays: All of the beaches in Calella are of a decent size, the largest being Platja Grand Calella, which is 1.5km long and a good 60m wide. As you can imagine, this adds up to a whole lot of space for you to stretch out while you’re sunbathing on your holidays!

Authentic town centre: Although Calella holidays have become busier and very much aimed at tourists in recent years, it’s still possible to catch a glimpse of the original Calella in its historic centre. Here the narrow streets wind into courtyards with authentic tapas bars and restaurants.

Attractions in Calella

Calella Lighthouse: Built in 1859, this elegant lighthouse is often considered the symbolic landmark of Calella. Interestingly this decorative Victorian-style construction is still in use today, as a particular patch of sea near Calella can be pretty rough.

Activities in Calella

Dalmau Park: A pleasant park in Calella surrounded on all sides by urban areas. The huge green trees and bushes make for a lovely respite from the hot sun whilst on beach holidays in Calella. There are several benches dotted around the park so you can sit back and relax whilst enjoying the tranquillity of this green space. Fountains and lakes add to the beauty of the area too.

Beaches in Calella

Platja Gran Calella: The main advantage of this beach is how wide it is – a full 60 metres or more in most places. And at 1.5km long, that means you’ve plenty of soft golden sand to enjoy if you’re having beach holidays in Calella. As Platja Gran Calella becomes very popular during the summer holidays, bar tents are put up all along the beach so you’ve even more choice when you’re deciding what to eat and drink.

Garbi: This beach can only be accessed on foot, which helps cut down the crowds compared to Platja Gran Calella. That said, it can still be pretty popular over the summer holidays, and you’ll find some temporary bar tents pitched up here too. Both beaches are closely monitored by lifeguards, so safety is always a high priority.

Les Roques: This beach is slightly smaller and therefore quieter than the others, but at 750m long and 25m wide, it’s still a decent size compared to beaches on other Costa Brava holidays. It’s also facilitated with a beach bar, showers and toilets so you won’t have to worry about leaving the beach during the day for any reason!

Restaurants in Calella

El Hogar Gallego: A top-notch seafood restaurant which serves many different fish dishes alongside an extensive wine list. The salt-baked Sea Bass comes highly recommended, and the lunchtime menu has a great value deal for three courses of food, making it even easier to have cheap holidays in Calella.

Hong Kong: This super clean Cantonese restaurant has a large selection of food on its diverse menu. In a twist on typical Chinese cuisine, you can also make your dish to order by choosing your own vegetables, meat and sauce separately.

L’Olivera: The contemporary choices on the menu of this authentically Mediterranean restaurant in Calella are all presented beautifully. You can choose from artistic dishes, such as Tuna and Red Pepper Mousse, or opt for something more traditional such as Black Paella.

Nightlife in Calella

Lively holidays: Calella holidays are some of the liveliest in Costa Brava, with ‘El Faro’ being the main area for all the action. There are actually a good number of nightclubs too, including Turisme 35, the Avenue and Western Saloon. Turisme 35 appeals to an international crowd, with just as many local Spanish people coming along to enjoy its three rooms of loud music. Western Saloon is quite a favourite with tourists on holidays from Britain, mainly because it’s known for having the most foam parties!

British bars: Being a popular resort with the British, Calella holidays feature many bars with home-cooked food and beers you’ll recognise. A good example of such a bar would have to be Beach Boys’ Club. This British-owned bar has 4 huge Sky TV screens showing all kinds of sporting events, plus they regularly host karaoke nights. Aside from that, The White Horse and The Frog are both good Brit-friendly drinking dens.

Shopping in Calella

Carrer de l’Esglesia: In the heart of the historic old town of Calella, don’t be fooled by how narrow this street is. It’s actually almost 1km long and is lined with original boutiques, souvenir shops and traditional delicatessens. It’s the perfect place to pick up something unique for friends or family on your holidays to Calella, and there are plenty of cafes along the way for you to stop and treat yourself to a coffee or two.
