But not only a variety of (beach) activities can be found in the Costa del Maresme, the area has also an incredible history and culture. Let yourself be carried away into an exciting world and enjoy your vacation with us!
Mild winters and pleasant summers
With over 50 kilometers, the Costa del Maresme is probably the smallest section of the Mediterranean coast of Catalonia. It is located only 36 kilometers north of Barcelona and south of the famous Costa Brava. The coastal region is protected behind a chain of hills, which is why a mild winter and a pleasant summer as well as an early spring can be enjoyed here. There is also no shortage of tourism offers in the entire region. Discover the thermal baths, walks along the coast, open parks and above all the wonderful sandy beach.
Enjoy not only the fabulous landscape, but also the culinary delights of the region, whether in cozy restaurants or small bars. But above all you will like the Pesolada pea festival, which takes place every spring and where delicacies are served with the special pea variety “floreta”.

Cozy village with a lot of culture and history
Caldes d’Estrac, or Caldetas as it is popularly known, may seem sleepy, but it still has an impressive history. In the heart of the village are thermal baths, which were already enjoyed by the Romans. Several cultural assets of national interest can also be found in Caldetas. This includes the House of Ugalde, which is one of the most important monuments of the village due to its architectural value. The summer residences along the Promenade de los Ingleses are also part of it. Furthermore, the Picasso Museum of the Fundación Palau is highly recommended, where old paintings by the most famous painter in the world are presented. The paintings are from an old friend of Picasso’s, Josep Palau.
The historic village, with its quiet streets, is surrounded by 3 watchtowers – Torre dels Encantats, Torre Busquets (50 meters away from Holiday Home Buena Vista) and Torre de les Heures. The towers “dels Encantats” and “Busquets” are part of a legend about the Moorish princess Fàtima and a citizen of the city of Busquets. The princess came to Caldetas to find a cure for her illness in the thermal baths and later married the citizen Busquets. The history of Caldetas is diverse and can be explored on the various routes through the area.
Astonishing wide sandy beaches
Our recommendation is Playa Los Tres Micos because it is protected by a rock formation and there are many beach activities available.
Playa de la Riera, also known as Playa Kalima, is probably the closest beach with the trendy Melé beach bar.
Playa de la Musclera is a somewhat quieter section of the wide sandy beach of Caldes d’Estrac.
Punta de la Pietat is adjacent to Playa de la Musclera and offers a pleasant stay for all naturist friends who want to relax freely in the mediteranean nature.
