Callela de Palafruguell is a little-frequented gem of a village made up of some 10 fishing huts in neat little rows that line 3 sandy coves. The light as the sun sets has inspired many an artist, and there is a tranquillity to the place that makes it particularly relaxing. In summer, tourists flock to this village, and the few local hotels are generally full. The months of June and September are the best periods for a visit: you will enjoy the mild temperatures and you won't be bothered by throngs of tourists.

Should you spend some time here, we recommend you follow the 'Route de Ronda' (also known as the GR92); it runs along the sea and leads to the village of Llafrance, affording numerous breathtaking views.

If you're lucky enough to be here during the first weekend in July, don't miss the traditional Habaneras Festival. It's a tradition that dates back to the days when local fishermen sailed all the way to Cuba and came back with nostalgic songs evoking the Caribbean, still sung today: It's a truly authentic event.
