Summary of the Beach Inspectors
This is a small beach where you'll find peace and quiet all year round, and often even complete solitude. Whilst things heat up in the tourist centres of Majorca, here you can swim, sunbathe and mellow out in the midst of largely unspoiled nature. Pack up everything you need for a contemplative day at the beach and pilgrimage through the woods to this almost sacred little spot. If you want to, here on the beach of Caló des Monjo you can even reveal yourself the way God intended.

Caló des Monjo - Idyllic bathing bay between rocks, forest and sea

Caló des Monjo means 'bay of monks'. It's a bit remote and can be found in the west of Majorca a little to the south between the resorts of Camp de Mar and Cala Fornells. The bay is tightly sandwiched between cliff walls and consists of two stone beaches that lie opposite one another. On one of them you can bathe nude.

To get here, you can park at the beach of Cala Fornells. From there, a 10 to 15 minute long walk through the picturesque forests of the area lies ahead of you. There is only one signpost at the beginning of the trail, so you should look at the route on a map in advance or bring a navigation device with you to make sure that you reach this beautiful spot without any detours.

Once here, apart from in peak season, the solitary seclusion of a small stone beach awaits. In the height of summer, you will have to share the beach of Caló des Monjo with a few other visitors, but it never gets crowded here, despite the fact that there are popular holiday resorts close by.

The bay is quite densely forested with pine trees, which reach down to the water in places, and is surrounded by medium-high cliffs. The water has a diameter of up to about 100 metres. The gap between the rocks out to the open sea only measures around 40 metres. This means that the largely shallow bay is completely self-contained and sheltered and swimmers like to use it for long laps.

The slightly larger of the two small lounging areas offers shade in the afternoon and consists mainly of a man-made stone terrace with steps. This was once a mooring for boats. On the smaller beach there is also an abandoned boathouse. Otherwise, the bay is unspoiled.

As well as being able to sunbathe and swim completely undisturbed, you can take wonderful walks here around the beach of Caló des Monjo or discover the underwater world with a snorkel. You should bring with you everything you need for a relaxing day on the beach in the heart of this idyll, but of course you can also walk back to the neighbouring beach of Cala Fornells to have lunch in the restaurant there.
