Guarantee of quality

Calella was established as a sports tourism destination in 2009; every year it hosts numerous national and international events and receives thousands of tourists looking to combine relaxation and sport.

The town has a Sports Tourism Destination Certificate, thanks to its modern facilities and wide range of disciplines for all skill levels. Calella’s good climate, services, specialised equipment and tourist attractions make it an ideal sports destination.

Nordic walking and much more

Calella was the first municipality in the country to be approved by the Spanish Nordic Walking Association (ANE), which means that the town is included in the network of certified Nordic Walking routes.

In addition to Nordic walking, you can practice many other disciplines: football, basketball, handball, athletics, swimming, tennis, water sports and golf. The nearby surroundings of the Montnegre Nature Reserve form a beautiful location for hiking, jogging or mountain biking.


If you prefer golf, we suggest you visit the courses at Sant Andreu de Llavaneras and Sant Vicenç de Montalt, with which we have an agreement. Ask us for details at reception.
