Summary of the Beach Inspectors
The three unspoiled bays of Cala Magraner, Cala Pilota and Cala Virgili allow you to get away from mass tourist locations and give you plenty of space for peace and privacy. All of them have a tranquil character, are embedded in a rocky landscape and are best reached by boat. If you come by car you need to allow for a two to three kilometre walk. The few visitors are mostly couples who feel at home in the heart of nature and don't need any infrastructure for a relaxing day on the beach.

Cala Magraner, Cala Pilota, Cala Virgili - Caves and torrents

Just a few metres apart, the three narrow bays of Cala Magraner, Cala Pilota and Cala Virgili thread through a flat landscape, densely vegetated with trees and bushes. They formed at the points where torrents flow into the sea, although these are dry apart from after heavy rainfall.

The easy way to get to these three bays in East Majorca is by water. If you have a car but no boat you will need to allow for a long walk to the beach. It's 18 kilometres from Manacor to here. Parking is available at a gate, which prevents you from driving any further but can be passed through on foot. From here you continue on foot along a gravel path. You have to walk two or three kilometres, depending on which of the three beaches you are heading for. None of the bays is signposted along the way. At the fork you go left for Cala Magraner and Cala Pilota, straight on for Cala Virgili and right for Cala Bota.

A common feature of all the bays is their rocky surroundings. At times you will find a lot of seaweed here as well. The beach at Cala Magraner is made up of soft sand and gravel. At the sides, grey and red shimmering cliffs rise almost vertically towards the sky. They are very popular with climbers. Cala Pilota is a small side bay of Cala Magraner and is surrounded by lots of flatter rocks, interspersed with trees and shrubs. Here too the beach is mainly composed of gravel. In the rock faces along both Cala Magraner and Cala Pilota caves have formed, which climbers can explore.

The most southerly of the three beaches is in Cala Virgili. The gravel and the fine-grained sand change to a stony seabed where the waves break. Cala Virgili is the narrowest of the three bays and is surrounded by flat rocks. From the headland of Ses Meleres, which juts out into the sea between Cala Pilota and Cala Virgili, you get a great view of the bay and the open sea.
