Calafell is at its busiest and best from spring until autumn. Temperatures reach the high 20s and sometimes into the low 30s throughout this period making it a very reliable destination to visit in terms of the climate. Prices tend to be slightly cheaper outside of these months from autumn to spring and there is actually still plenty to do here in the off-season, particularly in terms of walking. However, most people prefer relaxing on the beach or taking a stroll through the town in the splendid warmer temperatures, so we recommend a spring or autumn trip specifically.
Calafell itself has plenty of incredible sights to see. It is set around a medieval castle and is a typical Roman Villa which was actually created around 2500 years ago. You will find all of the typical amenities of a small town in Calafell and for more of a choice, you can head down the hill to Segur and Calafell Beach where you will find a shopping centre, tourist shops and a lively outdoor market. Calafell Beach itself is a prime attraction in this part of the Costa Dorada. It has a 5km stretch of golden sands and is consistently awarded Blue-Flag status for its quality.
The accommodation options in this town are on the more modest size compared to other parts of the Costa Dorada. A few hotels and apartments are the primary choices in the town itself but there is much more choice in the resorts at the bottom of the hill or along other parts of the Costa Dorada. Eating out is a treat in Calafell with plenty of choice and all tastes catered for. There is a good selection of international cuisine as well as a number of specialty seafood restaurants.
