Cala Deia Beach, Deia

Charming shingle beach on the west coast of Mallorca

Featured in: | Updated

Cala Deia is a very beautiful small shingle beach with clear waters and rock pools, one of the few beaches on the west coast of Mallorca. It's quite a rugged beach here so you might need to bring a chair or a lilo to lie on.

There are a number of terraces which are popular with artists as they set up their easels for a day of painting. The sea is wonderfully clear and inviting and perfect for cooling off in on a hot summer's day. The beach is mainly made of rocks and pebbles with a few patches of gravel.

The beach is served by two excellent restaurants serving fresh seafood and traditional Mallorca food where you can sit and enjoy the spectacular surroundings.

Setting & Location

The bay is sheltered by high cliffs that lead into pine forests. There is a small jetty, but the bay is not considered suitable for anchoring thanks to the sometimes strong northerly winds.

Water Safety & Clarity

The water here is a beautiful clear turquoise and very enticing for swimming. Due to the rocky nature of the cove sides, it is also a popular spot for snorkelling.

Beach Quality

The beach is made up of coarse sand and pebbles and is only six metres deep, although it does stretch for 70 metres. 


The crystal clear waters of Cala Deia are ideal for some snorkelling and diving. Coasteering, kayaking, canyoning and climbing are also very popular on the west coast of Mallorca.

Getting Here


You can drive down a small lane to access the beach (sign-posted Cala Deia, on the outskirts of the town heading towards Soller) but the pay parking is quite limited and you might be better to leave your car in the village and take the walk down the perfectly maintained path to the beach (note it is a steep hill so be prepared for the return journey!).
