Cavalleria

General information

An unspoilt beach with thick yellow sand. On calmer days the rocks in the centre of the bay are a great place for snorkelling and the fish life is unusually tolerant of being observed. It is fine for swimming if the sea is flat but there can be quite strong currents if it is wavey. With northerly winds it is likely to be wavey as the bay is very exposed. Sometimes the waves are reasonable for surfing.

Easy access means this beach gets quite busy in the summer. The coastal walk towards Cala Mica (west) is very pleasant.

Directions

Head towards the Cavalleria lighthouse from the Tramontana road (CF-3). The original access to the beach has very limited parking and involves a 500m walk down a pleasant track. Further along the road is the newer access which has a full sized carpark (with toilets). From here a short path leads to a set of wooden steps which take you down to the beach.
