Cala Romantica is a picturesque cala with turquoise water and golden sand in the far east of Mallorca.
The advantage of this beach is that it offers plenty of space while delivering the classic beauty of Mallorca's smaller calas, with a cliff to one side plunging into the two tone sea. It is approximately 160 metres by 100 metres. There are sunbeds for hire with parasols that come with a safe to store your valuables. Behind them, towards the back of the beach there is a flat sandy area perfect for playing ball games.
It can get choppy here when the wind blows and the sloped entranced into the water can fill with algae. However the water isn't deep for quite some distance making it a good option for families with children. Lifeguards are on duty throughout the day over summer.
Setting & Location
A ten minute drive south of the resort of Porto Cristo, it is one of three sandy calas within a kilometre radius. The other calas are called Cala Mandia and Cala Anguila and can be accessed by foot.
Water Safety & Clarity
The sea here is sheltered and calm, and is ideal for watersports and especially for diving enthusiasts and snorkelers. The water is crystal clear and a stunning turquoise blue. Lifeguards are on duty here during the busy summer months.
The sand is soft and white, perfect for sunbathers and also for families with small children.
As well as being popular for watersports, such as snorkelling and diving, this is a popular bay for yacht and boat owners to stop in. A calm and natural harbour makes this an appealing place to drop anchor.
Although the beach is signposted on the main road as Cala Romantica, as you approach, the sign changes to S'Estany d'en Mas. There is a small car park here, but it can also be reached easily on the public bus system, taking the bus number 441 from Porto Cristo just to the north.
