Calella de Palafrugell beach is just 200 metres away. A former fishing village, this town is particularly known for its beautiful beaches and bays. Calella de Palafrugell has beaches and mountains. In the nearby cape, Cap Roig, is the botanical garden of the same name, where the Cap Roig Music Festival is held in the summer, which in recent years has been gaining in popularity and renown.
The town is also known internationally for its yearly recital of habaneras, the Cantada d’Havaneres de Calella de Palafrugell, which attracts thousands of people on the Port Bo beach to listen to the recital of this genre which is very popular in Catalonia and typical of fishing villages. Calella de Palafrugell is where the author and journalist Josep Pla settled after the war and where Joan Manuel Serrat found inspiration for his song "Mediterraneo".
