Cala Barca Beach, South-East Mallorca

Cala Barca is a small but pretty bay on the edge of Mondrago Park in the south east of Mallorca. It's 35 metres long by 25 metres deep and has golden sand. 

The beach itself is small and can become crowded in peak season but it its much prettier than some of the beaches further up the coast in Cala d'Or as it is surrounded by pine and oak trees.   

The closest resorts are Portopetro and Cala D'Or.

Good for: Diving, Snorkelling and Families

Setting & Location

Unlike some of the bays in the area, it has been developed for tourists and the Iberostar Club Cala Barca sits in the trees just behind the beach. The hotel means that the beach is not as quiet as neighbouring Cala d'en Borgit but it does have a beach club and a SCUBA and snorkelling centre.

Water Safety & Clarity

The bay is long and thin so the water is sheltered and calm and popular with divers and snorkelers. You'll also find showers and toilets on the beach, but there is no lifeguard service.

Bars & Beachclubs

The beach club in the shaded area behind the beach serves food and drinks.

Watersports

Snorkelling and diving are just two of the reasons to visit this beach, but with the crystal clear blue waters in front of you and the facilities right on your doorstep it would be shame not to give it a go!
