Caló des Moro Beach
Hidden away in a deep rocky inlet near Mallorca’s southern tip is the picturesque little cove of Caló des Moro. For many years this was one of the island’s true hidden gems, but over the years, as photos surfaced in the travel media this idyllic spot’s cover has been well and truly blown. With images of bright white sand and crystal clear turquoise water framed by steep, tree-topped cliffs it is easy to see the appeal.
These days the Caló des Moro is still every bit as unspoilt and remote as ever. However, despite being difficult to find and having no facilities it becomes very crowded during the summer months. Admittedly, given the beach is less than 50 metres wide it doesn’t take much for the beach to fill up.
If you visit Caló des Moro we’d recommend getting here early so you can stake out a patch of sand. Also it is worth avoiding weekends as the beach is popular with locals, who have been coming here for years, too. With there being no cafes, toilets, lifeguards etc, this is probably not the best family beach in the area. That said, it is pretty sheltered from the wind and waves which means it is generally safe to swim here.
Getting to the beach can be something of a challenge. Located 6 kilometres from Santanyi Caló des Moro is quite of the beaten track and not clearly signposted. Some signs even suggest the lane leading to the beach is private, which to out knowledge it is not. Once you arrive there is also a scrabble down the steep cliff “path” to reach the beach. However, time your visit to Caló des Moro right and you can enjoy what is possibly the most beautiful beach on Mallorca.
