2. Caló des Moro. One of the best kept secrets on the island: a quaint, undeveloped beach stretched between rocky outcroppings and steep cliffs offering fine sandy beaches and clear, turquoise and light blue water.
3. Cala Llombards.
A secluded beach surrounded by steep cliffs and rocky areas, bordered with pine trees and lush bushes. Soft, white sand plays against the crystal-clear, turquoise sea. An ideal place for snorkeling
