Located on a remote stretch of the rugged north-eastern coast of Mallorca is an oasis of beautiful soft, white sand lapped by crystal-clear turquoise waters. The beach of Cala Mesquida is a true gem with the perfect balance of a stunning setting and all the facilities you’ll need for a family day at the beach.
The beach of Cala Mesquida is set in a small bay with a backdrop of sand dunes which extend far back before giving way to pine forest. The dunes can be crossed by means of a raised wooden walkway, which helps protect the dunes and makes getting to the far side of the beach a lot easier. This end of the beach is far quieter that the end closer to the resort which is one reason it is designated as a naturist area.
Given the beauty and ecological importance of the surrounds they were declared a “Place of Special Interest” by the Balearic islands governing body in 1991. This is place for nature lovers, and on the nearby cliffs one of the largest seabird colonies on the islands can be found.
With the small resort located at the wetern end of the beach there are plenty of amenities at hand. There is also a seasonal lifeguard on duty and with generally calm seas and shallow waters this is agreat place for swimming. The wind can pick up in the afternoon though, but this usually just makes for some fun little waves. When it gets really windy you will see windsurfers and kite-surfers out in force.
