Calella De Palafrugell Photo Diary

Beach at Calella de Pallafrugel

This is a post which is a long time coming! In April (I know, so long ago!) I went to Calella De Palafrugell in northern Spain for two and a half weeks and it was absolute bliss. It’s a little town by the coast and it was such a quiet and relaxing holiday, perfect for doing revision for my exams and trying to destress.

We nearly always go away for easter and it’s a perfect time to go if you’re wanting a quiet holiday. This is the second time I’ve been to Calella de Palafrugell and it’s such a calming place and so beautiful. There’s not much around there, but you can get the bus (or hire a car) to Barcelona for the day which we haven’t done, but were very tempted. There’s a few other towns nearby and some stunning walks as well. It’s such a beautiful beach though, it’s gorgeous to just sit by the sea and read your book.

We stayed at Siesta Camping which looks over the bay of Calella De Palafrugell in one of the lodges and it is such a lovely little resort. It’s not too busy, but on the weekends it fills with Spanish and French families and there is such a lovely atmosphere around the place. There’s the most gorgeous pool (which is FREEZING) and a lovely little restaurant as well as tennis courts and a shop and bakery. In the summer, they also have activities on and a kids club. I think it’s such a nice resort and so peaceful – perfect for a relaxing holiday!

I absolutely adore Spain and this little nook is honestly breathtaking. If you ever visit, I recommend going on the costal walk as there are some stunning views across the bay and some really good photo ops.

    I first fell in love with Calella de Palafrugell 40 years ago. I used to spend my summer holidays in Badalona and we would visit this resort to stay at my relatives cottage just on the outskirts. We spent many weekends walking and enjoying the peace. Good to hear it’s still as beautiful and picturesque as I remember although I suspect a lot busier. Thanks for the photos. They brought back many happy memories.
