Calo d'es Burgit is a small bay on the south east coast of Mallorca, just around the corner from Cala Mondrago and within the protected Mondrago Natural Park.
This small beach is surrounded by low cliffs which make for excellent viewpoints, covered in pine trees. Its unspoilt appearance is strengthened by its fine golden sand and the lack of buildings surrounding it making it a great choice for those in search of some peace and quiet.
A popular cove with mooring yachts thanks to its favourable anchoring conditions, accessing the beach by land requires some walking.
There is nowhere to stay on the beach here, so the closest option is arguably Cala d'Or, which offers a range of accommodation mainly designed for families, or if you'd like to stay somewhere more traditional in Mallorca, try the inland town of Santanyi.
The nearest option is on Cala Mondrago, only 500 metres away, where there is a beach ‘chiringuito’ serving traditional mallorcan tapas. Alternatively, there is a good selection of restaurants in Cala d'Or serving Mediterranean cuisine, a range of tapas and international food.
Setting & Location
Like most of the beaches on the east coast, Calo d'es Burgit is small with beautiful pine forests behind. It remains quieter than many of the other beaches because it does not back onto a hotel and thanks to its remote location. You can leave your car in a free parking area and then it is a 300-metre walk through the woods to reach it. As it is a virgin beach, there are no facilities on offer here.
Water Safety & Clarity
The water is a beautiful colour and very clean. The beach doesn't have a lifeguard on duty or any amenities but it is one of the quietest on the east coast.
The beach is 35 metres in length and 25 metres deep and is composed of fine golden sand.
Calo d'es Burgit sits in a small sheltered cove surrounded by cliffs that make it popular with snorkellers and paddle boarders, who enjoy the calm waters. The closest pedalos for hire are in Cala Mondrago, 500m away.
