Cala Bota - Remote pebble beach in a pine forest
If you want to find Cala Bota beach, on the east coast of Majorca, you need to know pretty much exactly where to look for it. The little bay lies well hidden in a conservation forest area north of Cales de Majorca. To get here you have to park your car by the road and then walk along the gravel path, which is a little over a kilometre long and steep in parts, through the private grounds of a finca.
Once you are down, one of the most tranquil beaches in Majorca awaits - a perfect spot for those who are looking for relaxation and appreciate peace, nature and seclusion. Entirely surrounded by almost untouched nature, you can unwind here, completely undisturbed by the hustle and bustle that dominates on lots of other beaches in Majorca. Only in the peak summer season does it get a little fuller here, but even then the atmosphere is very peaceful.
Cala Bota beach is around 30 metres long and up to 18 metres wide and consists entirely of large and small white pebble stones. White cliffs tower all around it, interspersed with the orange colour of the local soil and the green of the pine forest. It's stony underfoot in the crystal clear water too, so you should bring beach shoes and ideally something padded to lie on. There's also dried seaweed on shore, although it doesn't get in the way in the water.
Cala Bota is an ideal place for combining a visit to the beach with a walk through the conservation area. Along the forest paths you can also get to the neighbouring bays, although you can walk to or from Cales de Majorca along the coast as well. Either way, you can be sure that on Cala Bota beach a fantastic, relaxing beach day awaits you.
