Calo des Moro
Calo des Moro is located 6 kilometres
from Santanyi in the southeast corner of Mallorca.
The beach can be a bit difficult to
find. The residents put up signs saying that the road is private,
but it is possible to drive all the way to the beach.
Calo des Moro beach
Calo des Moro is an incredibly beautiful beach situated deep inside
a bay with sheer cliffs.
It is a small beach, but the 40
metres of beach is covered with fine-grained and bright sand. The
water is crystal clear with the most beautiful turquoise shades.
Perfect for a swim between the high cliffs.
When you have parked your car, there
is a few hundred metres on foot. You will pass the beach
s'Almunia on the way, but Calo des Moro is the most beautiful one of
the two. There is a steep flight of stairs down to Calo des Moro and
it has no facilities - not even close to the beach.
For many years, the beach has been
described as a 'secret tip'. It is not anymore, so in July and
August it would be good idea to come early in the day. Try to avoid
the weekends, when many of the locals usually visit the beach.
It is a good place for children to go for a dip as the water is
shallow and almost always calm. However, there is rarely much room
to play in the sand.
Water sports activities
There are no water sports activities, but the bay is perfect for a
swim and for snorkelling.
There are no restaurants at or close to the beach.
Nearby holiday resorts
The beach is located close to a small and nice residential area, but
you cannot see the houses from the beach.
The nearest holiday resort is
Cala Santanyi, 6 kilometres to the
northeast. Cala Santanyi has some good hotels, and it is a lovely
place to have a quiet and relaxed holiday.
Between Calo des Moro and Cala
Santanyi, you will find the small town
Cala Llombards. The town also
has a very nice sand beach with the same name as the town.
