This small cala is a holiday resort area on the southeast coast of Mallorca, and albeit the name is actually located nearly 5 kilometers away from the town of Santanyi. The beach itself is made up of fine white sand, with an entry area of roughly 80 meters in width and 120 meters in depth from the bar at the parking area to the shoreline of the Cala. There is plenty of space, especially towards the back, and of course depending on the time of day you visit.
The waters here are typically calm and clear, hence perfect for families with children. It takes a few meters for the water to get deeper. Snorkeling is also doable as there are some rock formations on the sides of the Cala. This beach is also a blue flag beach, which indicates its cleanliness and high environmental standards. It is very busy in the summer. You can rent paddle boats to take out and slide into the water, a fun activity especially for older children and teens. It is also a great way to see Es Pontas, a rock formation that was naturally formed by wind and tides and has become a famous photo.
Around the Cala you'll find numerous cafés, restaurants and places to quickly grab a snack, a drink or an ice cream. All of them seem family-friendly and offer many typical dishes such as hamburgers, salads, chicken, paella and tortilla.
While free parking is available right at the bottom of Carrer sa Costa Dets Ètics, it is limited and will often be full. Alternatively, you can park on the same named street or other streets nearby and walk to the Cala if you are visiting for the day.
