On 11 September, the streets of all the towns in Catalonia are filled with celebrations, culture and many traditions that cover all age groups and audiences. From the hotel Bernat II we have found a video that we believe you can use to get to know more directly this day of September 11th and Catalan culture.

There are many unique spots in Catalonia. You can find the most beautiful coasts (Costa Brava, Golden Coast …) and the most spectacular mountainous places (Montserrat, the Gavarres, the pica of states, and many more). Apart from all the natural attractions, you can also get to know architectural and artistic elements that attract visitors from all over the world. A clear example is Gaudí’s various works or vestiges of Barcelona’s bourgeois past.

The essence of Catalonia in a single capsule that we want to share, today, with you.
Happy Catalonia Day!

In today’s post we’ll make a history class about the tourism in Calella …

 

According to the United Nations, tourism has become one of the most important drivers of economic growth in the world. It is estimated that this sector represents 10% of gross domestic product (GDP) and will continue to grow until 2030. It’s not that bad, right? 😏

 

The cause of growth is due to the fact that during the second half of the twentieth century and the 21st century, traveling has become an activity within reach of everybody. It has been declared that the right to vacations it’s a universal right. This fact implied a change of panorama, in which people had more time for leisure and traveling.

 

Apart from this, there are others such as low-cost rates and digital media tools, that make traveling much easier. Internally we are updated to keep up with all the digital resources and facilitate the reservation of the next client. It’s an experience!

 

As a hotel, we are proud to say that we have been part of this change, since the city where we are, Calella, has become the reference point for the tourism world in recent years. This same tourism, of comes to Calella between the 1970’s and the mid-90’s. And that’s how our city became a well-known destination for the Central European tourist.

 

Due to the need to accommodate European travellers, the family project it’s being built to create this hotel. This happens during the economic growth period of Calella as a city, specifically in 1989 which is when the hotel opens its doors. Day by day, we’ve seen many tourists and many events that have been enriching us time over time. It made us more professionals, and at the same time, those experiences have allowed us to preserve the familiarity that characterizes us.

 

We are aware of how society advances and how the demands of the sector change. That’s why we always want to be aware of the latest developments and take care of the last detail in order to offer to our clients the highest quality during their stay. We do it because we love our work and we like to see how people disconnect at our home. Btw, which are your plans for the weekend? 😎

 

Tourism unites people and cultures. It makes us very happy to be a part of it!

From the Hotel Bernat II we want to help you with the daily activities that arise during the stay. That’s why we have done a brief search to make it easier to organize your trip to Calella and from Calella to everywhere. From our hotel we have several proposals and many ways to suit your needs.

1.TRANSFER OPTION

From all the various possibilities to travel between the hotel and the airport, we offer you the transfer service from El Prat airport or the Girona airport (this last from April to October). This service is organized by the hotel and can be private or shared. If you are interested, you must book it through our website.

 

2. BUS LINE

On the other hand public transport organized by coach, is one of the other good options to reach the airport from the area where we are located. The stop for departures and arrivals it lasts 5 minutes from the hotel and the duration of the trip is approximately of one hour. This service is public and there is no reservation option as in the other case. To know timetables and rates you can follow the link that we propose below.

 

 

3. COAST TRAIN LINE

A very popular option among all users is the train that runs along the coast. This line of train is the oldest in Spain, and its first service was in 1848. This is also the most economical and most beautiful proposal. From Calella we have the possibility to take the suburban train to Barcelona and direction Girona. Trains to Barcelona are more frequent, and they pass every 15 minutes. The return ticket costs 10€ but if you have to move around the city, we recommend taking a combined ticket to make use of the subway and the metropolitan transport of the city of Barcelona. Check schedules here 

One of the advantages that there is during the trip with the train, are the landscapes. During the trip to Barcelona, ​​you can enjoy fantastic views of the Mediterranean coastline. Once you reach Barcelona, ​​the train can leave you in several stations. The most central station is Plaça de Catalunya. In case your destination is El Prat airport, don’t worry, you just have to change the train to Sants station and take the one that goes to the airport, on the other rail.

 

4. CAR RENTING

If driving is your passion, you have the option of renting a car at the same airport or moving with your own vehicle in the area. In the Hotel we have an indoor parking for our clients.

So you don’t have more excuses, now you know how to reach us! We are waiting for you!

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!

The Sant Joan festivity is a celebration that takes place around the country during the night of June 23th and it is celebrated in many different forms. In Calella, it is lived in a very special way, because we are so close to the sea, so it makes this tradition even more unique.

The tradition explains that when the sunset begins, the bonfires turned on and is when the popular verbenas and dinners start at all the place in squares, streets and beaches. This is a magical night that celebrates the summer solstice. A tradition that has become a celebration with elements and customs very marked and symbolic. Especially in the seaside towns where there are bonfires on the beach, midnight baths, songs, and various magical rituals for those who believe in the purifying power of the fire of Sant Joan.

Another essential element to make this night something more authentic, is the well-known coca de Sant Joan. This is a desert decorated with fruit and cream and it’s usually accompanied with cava to give and celebrate that summer begins.
So, from our hotel we invite you to go out on the street, get alight the fire, enjoy the Sant Joan coca’s and cava to celebrate all together with enthusiasm that one of the best and most beloved times of the year is coming!

At Bahari Club (located in the beach) you will find an ideal proposal to enjoy all the elements of the Sant Joan night and make this a memorable memory.

Let free your troubles and forget all the non-resolved problems, put on your best outfits and join us to celebrate and welcome the most expected and wonderful time of the year, our beloved summertime!
