Cala Santanyí - Large sandy bay with good bathing conditions
The beach of Cala Santanyí lies in the resort of the same name to the south of the east coast of Majorca, near the small town of Santanyí. The beach stretches over a length of about 70 metres along the water and projects more than 100 metres inland.
The large, light sandy area provides plenty of space for sun-worshippers. Beach umbrellas and sun loungers take up about a quarter of the area. If you want one you should come early because, despite the relatively large number, there are rarely enough in the summer months. That said, there is always enough room to make yourself comfortable on your own towel on the soft sand, even when it's very busy.
The bathing conditions in the small bay are very pleasant - the water is calm and mostly clear with gently sloping access, which creates good conditions for children to paddle safely here. Lifeguards ensure additional safety in the water during the summer months. The beach of Cala Santanyí has been awarded the blue flag, the quality mark for particularly clean, safe and visitor-friendly beaches.
The rocks along the bay offer good spots for jumping directly into the water and these are popular. From the beach you can also take lovely walks, for example to Es Pontas, a rock in the water that looks like a bridge.
You can also hire pedal boats on Cala Santanyí beach and a diving school offers courses and equipment. There are bars, restaurants and a small supermarket. Although the hills at the edge of Cala Santanyí beach are relatively densely populated with villas, the beach doesn't seem built-up. The buildings mostly integrate well with the scenery of cliffs, lots of trees and palms. Right near the water there is a hotel and two beach bistros.
