Cala Santanyi Beach, South-East Mallorca
Cala Santanyi is a popular beach due to its location right next to a number of tourist hotels. It has lovely fine sand and is in a pretty cove, with rocky cliffs and pine forests.
However, there are a number of resort-style hotels overlooking the beach that sadly detract from the natural beauty of the place. This then makes for a busy beach as the holiday-makers (quite rightly) just tumble out of bed and on to the beach. It's 70 metres long and around 100 metres deep so it is a decent size.
Good for – families, snorkelling
Beach Bars & Beachclubs in Mallorca
There are a couple of beach cafes and a supermarket in the village of Cala Santanyi (not to be confused with the village of Santanyi!).
Setting & Location
It is located around 6 km from the lovely rural village of Santanyi and there is limited car parking next to the beach, or parking in the streets of the village.
Water Safety & Clarity
The sea is shallow and calm making it ideal for children. The sheltered waters also make it a superb area for snorkelling and there is a local dive school. This cove makes for a safe haven for boats when the seas become stormy.
There are showers and toilets, and access for the disabled. Lifeguards are on duty during the summer season.
The diving school here will see to all your needs. Snorkelling is also a popular pastime.
