The small village of Banyalbufar with its 500 inhabitants is situated on the west coast of Mallorca. Close to the mountain range Serra de Tramuntana.
The beach in general
Cala Banyalbufar is beautifully situated in a small bay surrounded by cliffs and trees. The beach is 100 metres long and narrow.
A part of the beach is covered by large stones while the rest of the beach consists of gravel. It is definitely possible to lie down on a towel and the view from the beach is amazing. The water has the most fantastic colours and is crystal clear. You will find stones of various sizes in the water but the beautiful scenery makes it perfect for a swim.
The sun hits the beach from about 11 am due to the high cliffs behind the beach. Because of the cliffs the beach is accessible only by a steep stairway,
Parking is for free and is close to the beach. Follow the signs.
The beach is not child friendly.
None, but the bay is good for diving and snorkelling.
The village Banyalbufar
