Cala S'Almonia Beach, Cala Llombards

Cala S'Almonia is a rocky cove in south east Mallorca

With beautiful views and crystal clear water it's a great place for swimming and snorkelling. Picturesque and quiet, it's no surprise that it's popular with the locals. 

Pack light as to reach the cala you'll need to go down a steep set of stairs, a total of 120 steps. At the bottom, head right along the rocky ridge. Some people prefer to lay down on the flat, eroded areas of rock and jump in from the sides. It's certainly deep enough, although I recommend water shoes to make scrambling out kinder on your feet.

There is a small makeshift car park nearby. Don't park on the yellow line as traffic police do pass by and will give you a ticket!

Setting & Location

Cala S'Almonia belongs to the southern municipality of Santanyí, which preserves the most extensive virgin coastline in the island. From this cove, it's possible to walk along the coastline to the light house at Cap de Ses Salines. It's about 8 kilometres long and takes approximately 3 hours. The route takes you passed the prehistoric village of Ses Talaies de Bauç as well as some spectacular calas such as Calò des Màrmols. It really is a stunning part of the island and well worth a visit. 

Water Safety & Clarity

There are no facilities or lifeguards here. The small area of sand makes it less ideal for younger children, but will be fun for confident swimmers.   

Beach Quality

There's a small sandy beach at one end, and at the other, a charming collection of fishermen's huts and jetties where the water is easily accessible.  

Watersports Nearby

A visit to the adjacent cala, Calò des Moro, is a must. It's only a five minute walk away and it's truly stunning. However, being smaller it does tend to get busy. Cala S'Almonia is more spacious and as long as you don't mind rocks, it's somewhere you could spend the day.
