British travel journalists in Calella de Palafrugell

Calella is an idyllic village Located on the Costa Brava, Whitewashed and pastel coloured buildings watch over the Mediterranean, silhouetted by tall, verdant trees.

The aroma wafting from the trees mingles with the fresh sea smell, that invigorates and relaxes at the same time.Of course without getting into politics, it is situated in Catalonia, along with a numerous other beautiful spots.


Beautiful beaches

Around the village centre there are a few beautiful, small beaches to choose from, with the main one being El Canadell beach. In the early morning, you can still see the fishing boats going out to sea, as they have done for centuries.

To be a little more secluded however, all you need to do is head south on the footpath that goes along the shoreline, to find more intimacy on a lovely beach called Platja del Golfet. And the Costa Brava has is fair share of lovely beaches. Naturally enough this is the busiest beach during the season.

The port was the main arrival and departure area for a range of products in the early 19th century, such as beans, wheat, flour, cork, wine and bullets. This was featured in the British Telegraph newspaper as perhaps being one of the best beaches on the Costa Brava.
