The wild, west coast beach of Cala Torta has quite a different feel to most of Mallorca’s coves and beaches. Situated amongst the rolling hills of the Llevant Peninsula this remote sandy bay has a very natural, pristine air to it.
Cala Torta is around 200 metres wide and sits between low headlands with a backdrop of dunes. As you would expect for Mallorca the sand is white and the sea is a clear turquoise. There are often more waves here than on the island’s other coasts and the beach does shelve quite steeply so some care should be taken if swimming. However, during the summer there is a lifeguard on duty so it is generally safe.
Getting to Cala Torta can be something of an adventure, at least if you want to drive to the beach car park. We would only advise doing this in a 4x4 as the track down is pretty rough. There is alternative parking about a kilometre from the beach.
Given the remoteness of Cala Torta it is no surprise facilities are a little on the basic side. That said there is a good chiringuito (beach bar) right on the sand.
Cala Torta is fairly well known for nudism. It’s off-the-beaten-track location and tolerance from locals makes this a popular choice for naturists.
