Things to do in Calella
A holiday in Calella is perfect for enjoying the Costa Maresme’s coastline. As you would expect, much of the town’s entertainment is geared towards beach life. With top-notch watersports facilities - including banana boats, kayaking, windsurfing and boat trips - there’s plenty to keep active families busy. Away from the beach, the old town is classic Spain. Winding alleys lined with whitewashed houses lead to a pretty town square, home to markets and festivals throughout the year. Foodies can tuck in to some truly authentic Spanish and Catalan dishes served up in the many family-owned restaurants dotted around the town.
If the sprawling town seems too daunting to roam around in the summer’s heat, hop aboard the mini train. Circling Calella in summer, it takes the leg work out of exploring, leaving you with plenty of energy to travel further afield. Let off some steam at the nearby theme parks or take a tour of Barcelona - just an hour’s drive away.
Calella’s 3km of golden sands are split into three separate beaches: Garbi, Les Roques and Gran Playa. With the coveted Blue Flag status, families can look forward to clean waters and pristine sands. Adventurous holidaymakers will find an excellent range of water sports and there’s beach entertainment to keep visitors of all ages happy in summer. Children will love the beach games, which include foam parties, bouncy castles, aerobics, football, dancing and more. For more water-based fun you can swim out to the giant inflatable pier complete with trampolines and waterslides.
Though Calella’s beaches are rarely crowded, there is a more secluded beach just 25 minutes’ drive away. Cala Treumal’s peaceful setting beneath the Pinya de Rosa botanical gardens offers a tranquil space to unwind, away from the hectic fun and games in Calella. On a beach holiday in Calella, you’re never too far away from the nearby bars and restaurants. Ideal for a quiet snack at lunchtime or enjoying a leisurely meal as the sun goes down.
