DISCOVER THE FLORA AND FAUNA OF THE CITY

From the Hotel Bernat II we invite you to discover the flora and fauna of a place that integrates in full harmony the sea and the mountain. These are short and easy routes that will allow you to get to know the city and its surroundings in a different way. In addition, we consider that during the month of September, it is an ideal time to make these small excursions, as the weather is not so hot and in addition, there are fewer tourists.

 

Squirrel Route

The Squirrel Route is a small route that is part of the nature itineraries of Calella. It is very well signposted along its route, with a squirrel on a red background. It has a length of 3km and a duration of 1 hour. It is a circular route so it will not be necessary to make a return trip.

It is a walk through Calella that begins in the Plaza de Sant Elm, follows the Platja Gran beach, goes up the streets of the village towards the Muntanyeta sports area, visits the Dalmau Park and returns to the beach passing by the Plaza de Spain. Dalmau Park is a magnificent natural space with gardens and an example of the typical Mediterranean forest with pine trees and holm oaks ideal for enjoying nature and rest.

 

Sea Crow Route

The Sea Crow Route is a small excursion that is part of the nature itineraries of Calella which is perfectly signposted along its route with a cormorant on a blue circle. Its difficulty is low-medium with a length of 3km and a duration of approximately 1 hour and a half.

It is a perfect walk that follows the seafront of Calella from Garbí beach to La Cabra beach, passing by Valldenguli and Torretes. This route allows us to observe the cormorants drying on the rocks and get to know the Mediterranean landscape full of bushes and pine forests where the birds hide.

 

Guilla Route

We present a small route that is part of the nature itineraries of Calella. This is the Guilla route, which has a medium-high difficulty with a length of 10km and a duration of 2h and 30 min. This is very well signposted along its route, as route number 3 with the symbol of a fox and a yellow background.

The route starts at Garbí beach, the beach where the Hotel Bernat II is located, and leaves behind the town of Calella to climb the Sierra de Guilles, a biological corridor that allows the connectivity of the Parc del Monte-gre and Corridor with the Mediterranean coast. The route goes through a typical Mediterranean landscape dominated by cork oak, siliceous bushes, crops and dry grasslands where animals such as squirrel, badger, genet and guilla abound, the mammal that gives the route its name.

 

HAVE FUN IN THE WATER PARKS

August is over, but this does not mean that the water parks are closed, in fact, it is the best time to go! There are far fewer queues and it will be much less hot while you wait for your session on the hilarious slides. All water parks are open until the 2nd half of September, it is the ideal way to say goodbye to summer with the whole family!

In Calella we are lucky to be close to 3 water parks, all ideal for the whole family and with attractions perfect for all ages:

The water park is open specifically until September 12 from 10:00 to 18:00.

Be captivated by the Calella Lighthouse

The views are simply spectacular! From there, you will be able to contemplate the city of Calella, the whole of the sea, the beach and the mountains of the Montnegre and Corredor natural park.

Any time of the day is ideal to go, however, the star moment par excellence is undoubtedly the sunset; when everything is calm, when there are no tourists and when you can enjoy the serenity of the sea accompanied by the sea breeze that scatters the purple and reddish tones of the sunset. In addition, during the months of July, August and September the Summer Nights festival is held, which is a double opportunity both to enjoy quality exhibitions and to take advantage of and visit the Lighthouse at night. This year’s proposal is completed with a wine and tapas tasting, enjoying music and gastronomy in the same space.

Another incentive to go to the Calella Lighthouse is that in the same building there is the Calella Lighthouse Interpretation Center with an interesting exhibition on communications.

To access, you can park your car just before arriving or you can walk from the city (10 min walk from Hotel Bernat II). Although the lighthouse is elevated to a peak, it is very easy to get there, the path is very light.

Surrounding the Catalan capital, we find ourselves in front of a series of regions that are part of the Costa Barcelona tourist brand. Calella is a small corner of the Maresme that, despite not being a very big destination, it is full of activities, events and places to visit. Along with Santa Susanna, Pineda de Mar and Malgrat de Mar, it is a municipality with the Family Tourism seal awarded by the Generalitat de Catalunya. It brings together all the essence of the Mediterranean, standing out for its beautiful beaches but it is also characterized for having very good options for family, sports, gastronomic or cultural tourism.

In this city, also known as Calella de Mar and being considered the tourist capital of the Catalan coastal region, you can find a very good range of services, a wide range of leisure activities designed for all ages, a well-equipped beach and commercial offer of all kinds. In addition, it is perfectly adapted for pedestrians and has numerous green spaces, something that is fantastic because it allows you to do a lot of excursions and activities designed for all members of the family. So you can see that it is very difficult not to feel comfortable in this city specially prepared for you to spend quality time with your family!

Taking into account all this information, we want to propose 3 essential activities that you can not miss if you come to visit our city:

ESSENTIAL NUMBER 1: SWIM ON CALELLA’S BEACHES

Calella has almost three kilometers of blue and clean water, so the first thing we recommend you do when you arrive in Calella with your family is to enjoy its beaches. On the one hand, if you prefer to swim in a more intimate and quiet area, we recommend a short walk (inclusive) from the Passeig Marítim to Les Roques Beach where you will find a small beach of transparent water surrounded by rocks. This one is very close to the Lighthouse and to “Les Torretes“. It is also surrounded by small coves, Rocapins, La Vinyeta, Cala d’en Pere (nudist) or La Roca Grossa. However, if you are looking to be on a beach where you do not have to worry about finding a place to lay and where you can practice a wide variety of sports, we recommend going to Platja Gran or Platja del Garbí. From Platja del Garbí, awarded with the Q for Quality and Blue Flag, we not only highlight its waters and its breadth but also the great variety of  bars perfect to go for a drink. Out of the different options available, we highlight the Bahari Club, Hotel Bernat IIs Beach Club, located right in front of the hotel area of Calella. Here you can find discounts on drinks (if you are staying at the Hotel Bernat II) and also, if you make a reservation at their restaurant, they give you sunbeds, parasols and also a parking space! Something that is appreciated because sometimes it is difficult to find parking at the beach area.

On the other hand, in the hotel area where the Bahari Club is located, there is the Calella Tourist Association activity point, where you can find plenty of free or 20% off activities (for people staying at the Hotel Bernat II), ranging from bouncy castles to kayak excursions. Check out all the activities available here.

ESSENTIAL NUMBER 2: GET LOST IN DALMAU PARK

The Dalmau Park in Calella is a very pleasant natural area and the largest leisure area in the town for excellence, where the brand of Family Tourism Destination (DFT) can also be seen. That’s why we’ve added it to the must-do list.

It can be visited in an easy route, thanks to the paths and trails expressly indicated. It has children’s areas, picnic area, fountains, pine forests, garden areas and numerous benches to rest. It is an ideal environment full of greenery and multicolored flowers, which has at least 10 hectares of idyllic gardens and shady forests in the heart of Calella perfect for all those walks among pines and sculptures lovers. Dalmau Park, then, is the perfect counterpoint to combine beach and nature and, moreover, it can also offers a wide variety of activities to do:

  1. Do the botanical itinerary. It starts in the central part of the park, in the Font dels Lleons. In this way, the different types of vegetation that inhabit it can be observed. At the bottom are banana trees and in the part superior the Mediterranean forest predominates, with pines, oaks and weeds.
  2. For the little ones there are areas with children’s play facilities ranging from classic swings and slides to new and very modern games that encourage imagination and adventure.
  3. You can’t miss visiting the anti-aircraft shelter located on the edge of the park built in 1937, during the Civil War, to protect the population from bombing.
  4. If you want to walk around Calella, you can do the Ruta de l’Esquirol, one of the routes that passes through the middle of the Park. It lasts about an hour and is also perfectly marked with red squirrel-shaped paint. Its difficulty is very low and this allows it to be suitable for all family members.

ESSENTIAL NUMBER 3: DISCOVER THE STREETS WITH THE “CARRILET”

You can’t miss the opportunity to get on the Carrilet de Calella. It’s a little train and, almost like all this kind of trains, is open and they allow you to see the scenery and catch some fresh air while exploring the city. It’s the perfect option for walking the city’s main streets in a different way, especially if you’re traveling with kids and during the summer months. The full tour lasts approximately 40 minutes and it is a perfect plan to do with all the family!

The Calella tourist train offers an urban route through the different streets and the seafront. Round trip prices are € 3 for adults and € 1 for children. Up to 2 years is free. It runs every 20-25 minutes and runs from 9am to 10pm during the high season months. It has stops from one end of the city to the other, and one of those it is right in front of the Hotel Bernat II. It is also perfect for using it as a public transport if you come to Calella to spend the day.

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!
