    Nice Cove

    by intertraveler Written Apr 30, 2008

    This cove is oposite the camp site and there are steps leading down to it. There is a bar also on the beach and is popular with the local people. There is a small car park also.

    You walk past the lighthouse and just before the camp site.

    Aim high for a view

    take a short walk south, out of Calella and look for a sweeping road off to the right. Take this turn and then follow the footpath through the pines and up a slight gradient. As you climb, the view of the coast spreads out before you. At the top, turn round and look at the great view of Calella.

    Beaches near St Pol de Mar

    by jamiema Written Feb 15, 2007

    Calella's main stretch of sand can get very busy and crowded with tourists of all nationalities in the summer months, and this can often render it a little dirty, noisy and generally not very relaxing. If you want to get away from this then I suggest taking a walk away southwards out of the town, up the flights of steps to the top of the cliffs at the edge of the bay. Continue along the path beside the road here, admiring the view out over the blue Mediterranean and back over Calella de la Costa. A little further on, you will find some steps leading down to a 'bar' (it looks more like a house and wasn't open at all whilst we were there). Follow the steps between the buildings of the house through a couple of little courtyards, until you reach the beaches. Here there are a series of decent little coves with nice sandy beaches and clear waters, backed onto by cliffs. Beware, though- due to the seclusion this area is often used by naturists. On my visit I even spotted a few cormorants, something I was quite surprised by considering the proximity to the bustling and quite loud resort. If you really want to get away from the masses at Calella, then take the 1/2 hour to an hour walk from your hotel down to the beaches at St Pol, similar to those at Calella, only completely deserted and unspoilt.
