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.

Great beach for families...the location was so nice. Come early to stake out a good spot. It will get crowded, but that doesn't lessen the fun or atmosphere...it adds to it in my opinion. I'll come back here on my next Costa Brava adventure.

This area of Spain is really lovely. I spent quite a while walking around and I can see the attraction to this area. Not my favourite area of Spain as I'm not really a beach person. However, if you love the beach and surrounding cliffs...More

Most villages are steep, have steps to the beach or a broad walk. Llafranc would be the pic but its hotels alongbthe front. There is very little traffic and it would be easy with kids. It is a bit more expensive and quieter... More
