Cala Tirant (Playas de Fornells)

General information

There is a small beach next to the developed side of the bay and a much longer beach further round with access via a wooden walkway (or by clambering over the rocks). The main beach is sandy and backed by dunes and although well used rarely gets overly crowded. In the summer months there is a lifeguard service and there are eating places and supermarkets in the Playas de Fornells urbanisation. The beach is fine for swimming but care should be taken with currents when there are waves.

Windsurfing and kitesurfing are popular on stronger wind days.


On the way to Fornells turn left at Ses Salines. Road access is also possible to the other side of the bay but it is quite a long detour.

Additional information

There are strong rips flowing out at the edges of the bay when it is wavey (no currents when it is flat).
