Cala Fornells Beach, Calvia

Something for everyone, with both sand, rocks & a manmade platform of sun beds & parasols

Cala Fornells stretches about 80 metres wide and 4 metres deep. The water is clear and it's worth taking your snorkel as there are plenty of fish. 

Overhanging pine trees offer areas of natural shade and add to the overall charm of the cove. Cala Fornells is used by both residents and tourists. It can get busy but it has a good atmosphere and being in a semi-urban area means there's enough to do to make a whole day of it - or indeed a whole holiday.

The beach doesn't have a life guard, toilet or showers and there is no wheelchair access.

Beach Bars & Beachclubs in Mallorca

The cala has its own little beach bar on one side, which plays music. Those who prefer the quiet can simply escape the sound by moving to the other side.
