All year long, there are various events and festivities for the vacationing crowd. The peak seasons are during spring, summer, and early weeks of autumn.

The color of white sand beach contrasts remarkably with impressively blue sea. The beach is three kilometers long and is open to the public, maintained by the local government. Like many Catalan seaside towns, behind Calella is a stretch of mountainous area pleasant for highland adventures, camping, and hiking.

The history of Calella dates back to the times before Christ, with the establishment of a Roman villa called Villa del Rosario. The beginnings of the town centered on the fishing industry and the commerce between merchants from different places, including overseas and the Americas. They traded with silk, cotton, textiles, and other agricultural products.

Though Calella is now mostly urban, the old layout of a medieval town is still evident in the streets grids like Church Street and Calle Jovara. The town square is a heritage site where the fourteenth century market used to stand. From this market and square, the urbanity of Calella eventually evolved.

Because of its distinction as a tourist destination, Calella is never without tourists all year long. If planning a travel holiday, it is advisable to book hostels in Calella a few months before arrival. Calella hostels are varied; some are housed in the old villas and mansions that date from the eighteenth century, while some are modern.
