Summary of the Beach Inspectors

Cala Ferrera beach is definitely not for lovers of untouched natural bays - in the peak summer season holidaymakers cram themselves in here, enjoying the good bathing conditions and the proximity to their hotels and the large number of surrounding restaurants and bars. At the loveliest time of year it gets very crowded. Despite this the beautiful sandy bay has flair, the atmosphere is friendly and open, and lots of regulars have been appreciating Cala Ferrera beach for many years.

Cala Ferrera - Popular holiday bay with lots of regular visitors

Cala Ferrera beach is located in the east of Majorca just 15 kilometres from Porto Colom. If you come by car it can be quite difficult to find a place to park. Right by the beach there are only about a dozen parking spaces and in the surrounding streets parking spaces are also scarce.

Like most Calas (bays) on the east coast of Majorca, the small sandy bay is framed by rocks. On the beach of Cala Ferrera the rock face near to the beach is unspoiled on one side. Here there is a small cave beneath the foliage of the trees and shrubs that grow here. On the other side the rocks start out flatter. There is a large hotel building here with a terrace that stretches right up to the beach. Further on towards the sea there are villa-style holiday cottages on the cliffs and in the background there is another large hotel.

The beach of Cala Ferrera is not particularly large, yet it is very popular with holidaymakers. The majority of the area of fine sand is crammed with umbrellas and beach chairs. In peak season, sun-seekers pack themselves in and there is barely a metre of free space. If you want to grab a nice spot - or indeed any spot - you need to come early. There are more loungers on the neighbouring hotel terrace. These are a bit more expensive than the loungers on the beach but they're not reserved exclusively for hotel guests.

Other than the fact that it can get busy in the water the swimming conditions are good at the beach of Cala Ferrera. Apart from pedal and paddle boats there are no water sports here and swimmers have free rein to do their laps or float comfortably on their lilos. A lifeguard ensures safety in the little bay.

There are showers and public toilets too, however these are at the entrance to the beach, which is quite far away from the water. There is also a volleyball court, a small supermarket and, as well as the hotel restaurant, there is another restaurant that is frequented by the locals. Many holidaymakers on the beach of Cala Ferrera are regulars and come back year after year. If you're looking for seclusion and peace then this is not the place for you. But if you like a relaxed, open atmosphere, short distances and lots of bathing fun then Cala Ferrera could be just what you're looking for.
