A holiday destination or a stopover along the way?
Calella de Palafrugell is more than sun and beaches. It’s culture, gastronomy, arts and sport. It’s leisure both in the summer and in the spring.
Considered the best holiday coast in the world in 2012, and the favorite seaside village in Spain by Traveler readers in 2017, this is the place where Camping Moby Dick is located: Calella de Palafrugell on the Costa Brava.
Such is Camping Moby Dick: a small hidden gem in the same village and only 100 meters from the sea.
We are waiting for you…
On Port Bo beach, every first Saturday of July you can hear the traditional Havaneres songs that recall the comings and goings of merchants from Calella de Palafrugell to Havana. The most famous Havanera, ‘El meu avi’, honours the soldiers who fought in the war that made Cuba independent in 1898. The lyrics of many other songs help to relive the past and recall the great relationship that existed between these two magnificent regions of the world.
The beaches of Calella de Palafrugell have maintained for years the highest quality award (Blue Flag) of the EU. The coves of Port Pelegrí, Sant Roc, Port Bo and Canadell are beaches where adults and children can enjoy a relaxing bath some metres away from the campsite.
Walking from our campsite just 100 meters away, you can enjoy amazing and stimulating experiences such as diving at the Poseidon Club on the beach of Port Pelegrí, with the possibility of diving into the bottoms of the Formigues Islands.
Inland, the Costa Brava and the Empordà still maintain the essence of the Catalan culture: medieval towns that capture the scent of the land, as before and as always, surrounded by Mediterranean forests and modeled by the farmers of the area whose crops are translated into good wine and good food.
Many of our clients know the Cap Roig Festivals for their magnificent night concerts that every summer surprise us with fantastic listings that have included Julio Iglesias, Elton John and Mark Knopfler – just 1 km from the campsite. But the Cap Roig Festivals are more than concerts. Come and discover why.
Why not mix a bit of culture among coastal walks and sunbathing? In Palafrugell, just 3 km from Camping Moby Dick, you will have the opportunity to discover the Cork Museum and the Can Mario Museum, a space dedicated to contemporary sculpture.
Beyond the beach of Port Pelegrí, you can get to Playa del Canadell to rent a single or double kayak. Paddle along the amazing and rugged coast, to the north and to the south, and discover caves and otherwise inaccessible coves.
The Via Verda (“Green Way”) that connects Palamós and Palafrugell, known as the Petit Train Route, has a length of 6 km. It opened in 1887 to connect the Costa Brava with Girona by rail. Stroll and discover new landscapes, such as the Las Gabarras mountains, the Begur massif and the Aubi plain, of great agricultural value.
One of the maritime districts of the town of Calella de Palafrugell is called Port Bo, a historic site declared a Cultural Asset of National Interest that preserves the original layout of its streets, and the brilliant white colour of its porticoed buildings on the beachfront, very close to the campsite.
The Iberian city of Ullastret is the largest Iberian site that is known in Catalonia and one of the sites of the Archaeological Museum of Catalonia. Just 20 minutes by car from the campsite, learn why the millenary history of the Iberian Peninsula was also written in the Baix Empordà.
