Calella de Palafrugell is a small holiday resort and fishing village in Cataloniamarker, Spainmarker on the Costa Brava, near Palafrugellmarker and a short distance along the coast from Llafrancmarker. It should not be confused with the larger, more commercialised resort of Calellamarker, which is further south towards Barcelonamarker.

Calella de Palafrugell has an excellent setting and, whilst busy in the summer season, it does not have the large hotels and mass tourism of other Costa Brava resorts such as Lloret de Marmarker. The coastline of the town stretches some two kilometres south to the El Golfet beach - part of the Cap Roig headland where beautiful Botanical gardens are located.

The town has a number of good standard hotels, apartments and, at a distance from the beach, some campsites. Like much of the picturesque section of the Costa Brava, north of Palamosmarker and south of L'Estartitmarker, Calella has moved steadily upmarket in recent times and offers some very high quality restaurants and hotels - at prices to match. The beaches are Blue Flag standard.
