Cala Mitjana - Dune beach à la Majorca
The beach of Cala Mitjana on the eastern tip of Majorca lies near the town of Arta. The route here leads along a two-kilometre long gravel track through a pine forest that reaches almost to the beach. The bay is surrounded by hills, and rocks frame it to the sides. As far as the eye can see, there are no buildings around this beautiful natural beach. The only sign of civilisation is the road on which you come, and on which you can easily park in order to walk a few metres down to the beach.
The sandy beach, which is 80 metres wide, is good for lying on. You have a good chance of being practically or completely alone for the whole day here during the week, providing it's not the height of summer. But even on days when there are lots of visitors there is always more than enough space. If you particularly like seclusion, you can escape to the surrounding cliffs and dunes. You can get into the water easily from there as well.
Swimming is especially fun here because the water is impressively clear and while you are doing your laps you have a fascinating view of the coast surrounding the beach. A few yachts anchor here regularly too to enjoy the scenery. It's mainly locals and holidaymakers from Germany that come here over land. There is no infrastructure on Cala Mitjana beach so you have to bring everything you need for a nice day at the beach with you, from drinking water and provisions through to a sunshade.
