Destinations / Spain / Costa Barcelona Maresme / Calella
Subjects to in Calella on Spain's Costa Barcelona Maresme promise to offer a glimpse of the real Spain where locals enjoy family summers and tourists come to enjoy the traditional delights of endless sunshine, sandy beaches and blue skies with an occasional scudding cloud. Located north of beautiful Barcelona, this Mediterranean Catalonian coast has some well known holiday resorts and also some undiscovered gems.
Costa Barcelona Maresme holidays in Calella are all about lazy days spent on one of the 3 sandy beaches (Gran Playa, Garbi or Les Roques) stretching for 3 klms or just enjoying the town, fondly referred to as the tourist capital of the region. It could be said that Calella holidays are a bit two-faced! Match the traditional old quarter of Calella with the busy, modern town centre with its pedestrianised shopping area and you have the best of two, almost separate worlds.
Calella holidays are recommended for holidaymakers who enjoy laid back, sunny days with buzzing and fun nightlife. In high summer, the resort is very busy with local and international visitors, so find rest and relaxation in low season. Tons of bars, restaurants and shops cater to every taste and, with local fiestas and cultural festivals, there is literally something for everyone.
Subjects to in Calella can be combined with many super days trips to nearby Tordera Market, the 11th century Monastery of Montserrat or a fun water park. Develop your cultural side with a tour of the village of Figueres where Salvador Dali lived; tour Barcelona to view the amazing Gaudi architecture or travel further afield and take the kids to the marvellous theme park of PortAventura, close to Salou.
Callela holidays are traditional and modern all mixed together and the blend is a successful alamgam of holiday heaven.
