A beachy getaway of the highest caliber in Calafell

Charming Calafell is on the Costa Daurada (Gold Coast), a strip of shore named for the golden shimmer of its sand under the bright Mediterranean sun. The area is a prime spot for a serene beach vacation, and adults and children alike have plenty of gentle waves to jump in and winding roads to wander. Still, Calafell is more than a place to work on your tan. Originally a Roman villa built around 2,500 years ago, its fascinating citadel has been excavated and well-preserved. Book a Calafell vacation rental to get present on the beach and lost in the past.

Beach sand galore and cultural events for kiddos

The beaches in Calafell are positively magnetic. There are 5 miles of them, and they're golden, sandy, and perfect for kids and water sports enthusiasts. Most are equipped with children's play areas and paved walkways. The shoppers in your crew will enjoy the little shops and the 2 open-air markets that are open once a week, every week, in summer. Be on the lookout for annual festivals when you book a Calafell vacation rental. The Festival of San Antonio Abad (the patron saint of animals), the summer festival of Saint Peter, and holiday festivals in winter are among the highlights.

In Calafell, they've already dug up buried treasure for you

This tiny seaside town has a rather huge historical heritage. It was originally built around what is still its most popular attraction, the Iberian Citadel of Calafell. After over 20 years of careful excavations, the site is now a museum, offering guided tours and educational programs. For some slightly less ancient history, check out the Casa Barral Museum, the former home of writer and publisher Carlos Barral. He lived in a traditional fisherman's house, and the museum honors Barral's work and the community's history as a fishing and seafaring hub.

Fall in love with summer in balmy Calafell

The climate in Calafell is as kind as the sand is soft. From May through October, temperatures hover around the 70s and 80s, with highs in the 90s on the best beach days. The summer season is also when the town's population balloons. If you don't mind a bit of a crowd, you'll enjoy all the shops, eateries, and markets. If you're looking for a bargain on a Calafell vacation rental, never fear. With 300 days of sunshine each year, even winters are bright. Just leave your swimsuit at home and be prepared for fewer dining and shopping options.

A mountain range holy enough for medieval monks

The breathtaking beauty of nature will be quite obvious in Calafell, where almost every spot you stand in will offer sand underfoot or a view of the sea. Nearby are enough nature parks, mountain ranges, cliffs, and waterfalls to satisfy any nature lover. The Serra del Montsant mountains are less than 2 hours away and offer a unique landscape of jagged rocks cut by deep gullies and ravines. Genets, peregrine falcons, and golden eagles are at home here, as were hundreds of monks in medieval times. You might spot the ruins of a 12th-century monastery on your hike.
