Calella, the tourist capital of Costa del Maresme, has countless terraces, restaurants, and a bustling nightlife, which along with the beaches, constitute an attractive choice for anyone.
Calella's city centre stretches for three kilometres, between the golden beaches of the Mediterranean and the last spurs of Montnegre. This exceptional location makes it a first-class coastal destination, recognised in many occasions with the European quality award: the Blue Flag. The most varied water sports and outdoor activities are available here, thanks to the mild climate that this region enjoys all year round, and the excellent facilities at the Sailing Club. Terraces and restaurants on the seafront will delight us with the best dishes of Catalan cuisine.
Numerous pedestrian streets invite a walk around the historic quarter, and the promenade shows Calella's Mediterranean waterfront, leading the visitor into the area of the lighthouse. This seafaring building, which has become an emblem of the city, rises above a promontory that dominates the whole coastline. Also nearby we find ancient turrets used for optical telegraphy, which used to line the entire coastline long ago.
