A Calella holiday: It's all about the fun
Calella holidays can be summed up in one word - entertainment. Daytime activities include water sports, beach games and organised activities for children. If you have any energy left as the day grows to a close - a quick siesta always helps - check out the lively nightlife and you'll understand why Calella is considered the clubbers’ paradise of the Costa Maresme. If you just can't wait till nightfall to get your gladrags on and hit the town, you'll be glad to know that it's not unusual to spot a bit of impromptu afternoon dancing on the beach! In fact, every Sunday during the summer season the famous Sardana dance is performed on the beachfront. Watch the locals join hands and take part in their beloved Catalonian dance.
Whatever time of year you take your holiday to Calella, you are likely to witness one of the town's remarkable festivals. These monthly fiestas bring a feel good factor to this adorable Spanish town, with processions, parades, music and dancing until the sun goes down.
