Caló d'en Rafalino - Idyllic rocky bay with hideaways
The beach of Caló d'en Rafalino lies, together with its neighbouring beach of Cala Morlanda, in a double bay in the east of Majorca, south of the town of S'Illot. You should follow directions for Cala Morlanda, since this is also the nearest place to park. To get from there to the beach of Caló d'en Rafalino, a short, stony footpath leads through the bushes.
The landscape here is colourful - the lush green of the bushes, the reddish tones of the earth, a spectrum from white to anthracite in the flat banks of rocks, the stones, both small and larger, and of course the gorgeous turquoise blue of the Mediterranean Sea, which shimmers crystal clear.
The beach of Caló d'en Rafalino is only about 20 feet long and runs seamlessly into the surrounding rocky bay. It consists of rocks and stones interspersed with a little bit of sand. In order to be able to lie down reasonably comfortably here you really need to search for a good spot or, better still, bring something well padded to lie on. There are no loungers or beach umbrellas for hire here and the unspoiled bay also lacks any kind of infrastructure or provisions. So you should bring with you everything you might need during your day on the beach.
The little rocky beach of Caló d'en Rafalino is very popular amongst those who prefer to bathe nude. But if you'd rather cover up a bit when you sunbathe or swim you won't get any negative reaction here either. It’s also a nice spot for snorkellers and divers. The rocks provide a retreat in some places and in others you can jump from them straight into deep water.
