Calella:
Nestled between the coast and the Montnegre nature reserve, you'll find the ideal blend of a Spanish beach resort and the appeal of old Spain on holidays to Calella.

With 3km of spotlessly tidy sandy beaches, Calella is a fantastic option for couples, groups and household escapes. Like a lot of Costa Brava holidays, Calella is only a number of hours from the UK by plane, so you could be taking in the sun in no time at all.

Explore Calella.
You'll find an excellent range of water sports and beach entertainment in the summer months. If you're searching for action holidays, there are beach video games on offer for the kids and water skiing for the grownups. The sandy beaches are hardly ever entirely crowded and, with Blue Flag status, you're guaranteed a family friendly holiday. Calella's beachfront is home to local Sardana dancing every Sunday evening during the summer, where you can soak up the joyful environment. If you're preparing a vacation here in mid-June, you can enjoy the yearly Sardana fiesta on the beach.

In the resort you can wander around the captivating narrow streets and white-washed houses of the old town, or choose from a whole host of Spanish restaurants offering superb Catalan dishes. Why not stay at the Hotel Olympic to take pleasure in attractive surroundings simply 300 metres from the beach? In the summer, the hotel provides a small train that circles around the town, so you'll have the ability to get around and check out with ease.

With excellent transport links, a field trip to the architecturally impressive Barcelona to enjoy the shopping and sightseeing makes a fantastic day out on your holiday. Calella's famous celebration of La Minerva in mid September is one of the biggest feasts of the year, with its incredible parade of paper mache giants.
