A Spanish seaside classic

If you’re thinking about a trip to the unspoiled shores of the Costa Brava, chances are that beaches rank highly on your wish list. Happily, Calella holidays are all about golden sands, with 2 kilometres of glorious coastline to enjoy. One of the best things about this fishing village-turned-seaside hotspot, just north of Barcelona, is that it remains relatively uncrowded compared to some of Spain’s other beachy destinations.

But holidays to Calella aren’t just about sunbathing and sea swimming. Calella’s pretty lighthouse, perched atop a foliage-covered hill, is the place to make use of your camera’s panoramic mode – the views are astonishing. From up there you can also plot out the places you plan to visit. Couples will enjoy pottering around the romantic old town, while further up the shoreline there are action-packed water and theme parks – and plenty of scenic picnic spots – that are great for families. So whether you’re just looking to enjoy lazy days at the beach or you’re keen to get out and explore, Calella makes the ideal resort.
