Cala Mesquida is located in one of the
most scenic areas of Mallorca, in the north-eastern part of the
island. The nearest towns are Capdepera and
The beach in general
Cala Mesquida is located in a large bay, surrounded by rocks on both
sides. A beautiful sight if you go a bit up the rocks.
The beach is approx. 350 metres long and
the sand goes all the way into the land. The sand is bright and
fine-grained, and the water is very clear with nice turquoise
It is possible to rent sun lounges and
sunshades at the beach. At the very back of the beach, close to the
restaurant, it is possible to rent double luxury sun lounges. There
are no showers or toilets at the beach.
The location of the beach is fairly
unprotected. This means that Cala Mesquida is more exposed to wind
and waves than other places in Mallorca. Luckily, there is a
lifeguard keeping an eye on the bathers. The eastern part of the
beach is reserved for naturists.
The beach has plenty of room for the children to play, but on windy
days, the waves quickly increase in size.
Water sports activities
It is possible to rent water bikes at the beach, but otherwise,
there are no water sports activities.
At the back end of the beach, you will find the large and very
popular restaurant called Mirablau. At the central part of the
beach, you will find a beach bar.
Cala Mesquida holiday resort
Cala Mesquida is a very small and relatively unspoiled holiday
resort. There is a small area with hotels, some restaurants and a
few supermarkets and shops. The nightlife is quiet.
Three of the hotels in town are part of
the Viva Hotels chain, which is known for its nice and
child-friendly hotels. This also applies to the
Viva hotel in Cala Mesquida.
The town is surrounded by a lovely
landscape with hills and a protected pine forest. Five-six
kilometres from Cala Mesquida, you will find the small Majorcan town
Capdepera, which is a Medieval town with walls and towers. This is
definitely worth a visit.
