Discovered this a well known fisher town, a haven for sailors. Locals favor this place because water is pristine and catch is great. Lots of restaurants in this small town, great walking paths, plenty of places to sun bathe. If you have kids, the water...More

Loved Callella so much, we went back to spend time there a few times. Gorgeous little seaside town which was not too busy for the high tourist season. Some lovely clothing shops, an amazing ice cream shop and lovely restaurants too.

Such a beautiful, unspoiled beach! We took a day trip out here to see the Costa Brava and are considering staying here next time. So beautiful and relaxing!

Calella de Palafrugell has several beaches connected with an easy foot trail (Camí de Ronda). They are very representative of the Costa Brava, with clear waters and cliffs with pine trees. Unfortunately the beauty is broken by a large number of recreational boats that are...More

Good beach, lots of room even on a busy day, would recommend buying a beach parasol from the shops, but make sure it fits in your case as there is a charge at the airport. The beach has plenty of facilities, toilets bars and shops...More

I could easily have spent a week here and not been bored. It's an ideal location. Walk to the neighboring village for lunch or dinner. Easy parking. Not too crowded. Beautiful beaches. We loved it.

Calella is truly an exceptional place. The natural beauties of the coastline and settlement have been enhanced by careful, tasteful development - the use of natural or traditional materials really does enhance the rugged beauty of this part of the region. Terracotta, natural stone and...More

Beautiful beach, nice ambiance in this lovely village. Lots of colourful and freshly renovated buildings. Nice stores selling trendy beach wear. Cozy restaurants with efficient service, good food and superb view to the sea. A little jewel!

Such a lovely place to visit, the beach doesn't have fine sand but it is a great place to go and see. You can walk the coastal path to La Ffranc which is worth it, so pretty.
