Cala Calafat and Cala Calafató are located in a historic area of the municipality of L'Ametlla de Mar, in the northern part of the Terres de l'Ebre. The Calafat area was particularly prominent in Roman times as it was next to the Via Augusta, the road that led to Rome, then the 'capital of the world'. Despite the steep, rocky terrain of many of L’Ametlla de Mar’s beaches, Cala Calafat and Cala Calafató or Cala lo Ribellet, to the north of the municipality, stand out for their fine, golden sand. Some 100 metres long by 40 metres wide, Cala Calafat is accessible on foot or by car. Its services include showers, toilets, nearby parking, signage and restaurant areas.
L’Ametlla de Mar has more than 16 kilometres of coastline with beaches and coves of different typologies, most of which are adorned by greenery and are extraordinarily attractive. Adding to this are the steep cliffs surrounded by typical Mediterranean vegetation that further enhance this uniquely picturesque area.
