With the arrival of good weather and warm temperatures, coastal towns such as Calella have a great treasure: the beach. In fact, in Calella we do not have only one beach, but we have three! Each one with very different characteristics, but among all offer a wide variety of activities and benefits for all audiences.
In the graph above you can briefly observe the summary characteristics of each beach, so depending on the needs you have, you can decide more easily.

Below we explain more in detail each of the beaches that we recommend:

  1. GARBÍ BEACH: This is the most visited beach in Calella. With almost 1 km in length and a width of 72 meters, it is the bathing area that is closest to our hotel. Exactly 2 minutes walking. It is also on this beach where you can enjoy our establishment Bahari Club, an idyllic space where you can make the aperitif, eat, have a cocktail, or simply relax in our hammocks and umbrellas area. It is the most comfortable option for those who travel with children and do not want complications. It has a very simple access, it has beach soccer and volleyball areas, and there are also public services adapted for people with disabilities. In fact, it has been three consecutive years being commemorated with the blue flag and the “Q” of European quality beaches.
  2. LES ROQUES BEACH: It is the most beautiful area of beaches in the Maresme area. Your choice if what you want is to enjoy the landscape and feel the true contact with nature. This is at 10 minutes walking from the hotel. The beach of “Les Roques” consists of four coves, one of which is nudist. We recommend arriving by walking because parking in that area is usually complicated.
  3. MAIN BEACH: As the name suggests, this is the largest beach in Calella and has the same amenities as the Garbí beach. One of its most important features is that it is located in the middle of the city and is the most popular beach. It has its beginning after the stream of Calella and extends 1.5Km.

We hope that this little guide has served you and you can find the right place to bathe this summer. Above all do not forget to bring sunscreen, moisturize constantly during sun exposure and avoid staying in the beach during the hours when the sun is more damaging (12: 00h to 16: 00h). In case of any doubt, our reception team will advise you on how to enjoy the best areas of our city. Happy Holidays!
