Surrounded by little coves, and near to the natural scenery of Castell-Cap Roig, the multiple possibilities for leisure, rest and the enjoyment of nature make Calella a unique place.
COVES AND BEACHES
The sea, which presides over this area, can be discovered through little coves, (some of which are hidden and unknown), and paths accessible both on foot and by bicycle. In summer the area becomes indispensible; and in winter, the calm of the surroundings invites one to stroll and discover the silence of the Mediterranean.
Calella de Palafrugell is, par excellence, the birthplace of the Havanans: the beach of Port Bo brings together hundreds of people in the Cycle of Summer Concerts. Without forgetting one of the Mediterranean’s best music festivals: the Cap Roig Festival, with an unequalled line up of internationally renowned artists.
Seafood lovers will find in Calella de Palafrugell a good refuge to enjoy the specialties of the Catalan coast: fish, shellfish or the numerous varieties of rice dishes are not missing from the gastronomic proposals of the town´s bars and restaurants.
