Advice please

Couple in our 60`s looking at Calella for Easter break. Very keen walkers-can anyone advise if other resorts, north and south of Calella, are walkable to? By promenade, road, track or beach? If possible might use train/bus one way and walk back. Also looked at Magrat/Tossa de Mar, Sitges, Blanes but Calella looks appealing. Has anyone a view or any advice? Thank you in advance for any response

you can certainly walk along the beach as far as blanes going north but bear in mind that blanes station is at the back of the resort.

you can also walk to st pol or canet de mar southwards, both nice seaside towns but i think you have to do part of the walk on the main road.

never been to sitges so cant help there, but tossa while having other good points is not really suitable in my opinion for what you want as it is in a bay surrounded by hills

Northwards you can walk as far as you want, I only managed to get as far as Pienada northwards. Calella is a good place for walking because there are so many other resorts near by.

It is a proper Spanish working town with a tourist bit bolted on so there is something to appeal for all.

You can walk the beach to the south or north. South runs past some rocky outcrops that are popular with naturists, but generally on the Maresme it's a long beach, behind which is a train track, then a road, and then either towns or hills behind you. There are walks in the hills, but generally easier from say Malgrat to Tordera or Palafolls (for the ruined castle) which are a little further north. The towns along this stretch are all connected by train, so you can walk and get a train back if you want.
