The ‘dreamy’ and underrated town in Spain where Spanish people go on holiday

The pretty little village of Calella de Palafrugell is one of the most charming towns in the Mediterranean, and a favourite summer destination among Catalans.

Located in Costa Brava, Catalonia, Calella is just one and a half hours away from Barcelona, but you can also fly there. The closest airport is Girona-Costa Brava Airport (GRO), although renting a car is a must if you want to visit the area.

The fishing town is according to Oliverstravels blog, “one of the most beautiful coastal villages in Spain“. They explained: “With its white houses, wooden boats on the beach, rocky inlets and hidden coves, there’s a dream-like atmosphere that you won’t be able to put your finger on.

“And in the centre of town, there’s a livelihood that’s met through a selection of waterside cafes, restaurants serving up delicious Catalonian food and a market featuring meat and local fresh fruit and veggies.”

Other dreamy towns to visit around the area are Pals, Cadaqués, L’Escala and Begur.
