Summary of the Beach Inspectors

In the resort of Cala Vincenç the stony beach of Cala Carbó is an interesting alternative to the sandy beaches popular amongst holidaymakers. As well as the crystal clear waters, it is the peace and the atmosphere of a wild, untouched rocky and stony landscape that are alluring. Boathouses and mooring spots, which are rarely in use, offer bathers extra spaces on which to lie. In the shelter of the small bay the bathing conditions are good and the spot is also well suited to diving or snorkelling. On weekdays during the day you will be relatively undisturbed here, but in the evenings and at weekends it can get full. Nude bathing is also normal here and is permitted.

Cala Carbó - Small stony bay with crystal clear water

The beach of Cala Carbó is in the resort of Cala Vincenç on the north coast of Majorca. Of the four beaches that the resort has to offer, Cala Carbó is the least well-known amongst holidaymakers. The small stone beach is situated on steep rock and pebble faces and doesn't offer much space on which to lie. There is no infrastructure whatsoever here, nor are there any food outlets. The small, stony area of the beach is bordered on one side by the wall of a road above. At the back there is a steep wall of rock and pebbles, which only leaves a narrow area on which to lie.

Cala Carbó is especially popular amongst locals. For many of them the wild charm of the place is a welcome alternative to the beaches full of holidaymakers. But a visit to Cala Carbó beach may appeal to non-native visitors as well. Right next to the beach there are some boathouses and mooring spots, which offer extra spaces on which bathers can lie and the chance to retreat. Some visitors make themselves comfortable on the surrounding rocks and stones as well.

The water sparkles a crystal-clear turquoise and the dark stones and rocks under water are clearly distinguishable against the lighter seabed. Cala Carbó is excellent for relaxed, peaceful swimming and snorkellers and divers who bring their own equipment will get their money's worth here too.
On weekdays during the day you will be relatively undisturbed here, but in the evenings and at weekends it can get full. Nude bathing is normal here and is permitted. You should bring your own food and drinks if you want to stay for a while because you can't buy anything locally. An amusing feature of the beach that children particularly like is a rock which, in the right sunlight, casts a shadow that looks amazingly like a horse.
