Es Calò des Moro is one of those picture perfect calas that takes your breath away. It is located in the south east of the island, six kilometres from Santanyí. 'One of the last paradises of Mallorca,' claims the foundation 'Amics d'Es Calò des Moro' which has been looking after it for the last fifteen years.
There is a makeshift car park nearby and signposts to the cala. Don't be put off by the 'private property' sign; the cala is privately owned, but open to the public.
Calò des Moros is often mistakenly called S'Almunia, which is the cala adjacent to it. It's a short walk but to get down to the sea you need to be agile, as the descent is a little precarious. There are no stairs, just outcrops of sandy rock.
A huge hotel was once prevented from being built on the land here, and the foundation worked hard to clear the rubbish that had been left and plant 2,000 indigenous plants. The result of this love and care is a beautiful, clean cala with crystalline waters in a beautiful setting.
