You would expect a beach this beautiful to get pretty busy in the summer, but this is not the case with the exquisite little cove of Cala Escorxada. It is just that bit too far off the beaten track for its pristine white sands and clear blue waters to ever get crowded.
If you don’t have a boat getting to Cala Escorxada involves at least an hour’s walk from the nearest road access. Given that when you arrive at the beach there are no facilities it really is one for only the most adventurous. But that is what keeps this perfect cove so special and pristine.
Given the beaches remote and laid back vibe it has become something of a clothes optional spot over the years.
Of course there isn’t a lifeguard here but the beach is quite sheltered and generally calm and shallow, making swimming and snorkeling particularly appealing after a long walk.
If you do decide to make the journey to Cala Escorxada there are two routes. The shortest is from Santo Tomas via the Cami de Cavalls - an old donkey track. Alternatively you can take the scenic coastal route from Cala Mitjana which takes about an hour and a half.
