Cala Torta is located in the north-eastern part of Mallorca, north of the historical town of Arta.
The road to Cala Torta is clearly marked, but you should prepare for the last few kilometres on a poor, unpaved road. However, the beach is well worth the trip.
The beach in general
Cala Torta is a magnificent natural beach surrounded by wild nature and hills.
The sand on this fairly large beach is bright and fine-grained. The water has beautiful turquoise shades and is very clear. The snorkelling conditions along the rocks are good, particularly at the left side of the beach.
Apart from a small restaurant/café, there are no facilities at Cala Torta, not even toilets.
Many visitors go for a walk in the beautiful settings. To the north-west, you will find other natural beaches, whereas the holiday resort, Cala Mesquida is located to the east. There are some simple paths leading in both directions.
There is plenty of room to play at the beach; however, the water deepens rather abruptly. Beware of waves and undercurrents when the wind blows from the north.
