Cala Mendia is a minor holiday resort
on the east coast of Mallorca, three kilometers southwest of the
more widely known town of
Porto Cristo. The distance to the
airport in Palma de Mallorca is just over 60 km.
The beach in general
The beautiful beach in Cala Mendia shares its name with the resort.
Like many beaches on the east coast, the beach is located inside a
bay with cliffs on both sides.
The beach is only 60-70 meters in
length, but makes up for it by being more than twice as wide. The
entire beach is covered by the finest sand and the water is clear
with beautiful shades of turquoise.
There is a large area with sun
lounger and parasol rentals. The remaining facilities of this beach
include showers, toilets and a large parking lot. In peak season,
the beach is monitored by a lifeguard.
There is plenty of room to play in the soft sand. The water is not
very shallow, but it is perfectly suitable for children. When the
wind comes in from the east, there may be considerable waves and
Water sports activities
There are no water sports activities, but snorkeling in the clear
water is gorgeous, especially along the cliffs.
At the back part of the beach, there is a popular restaurant. For
several years, it has served many regular guests. The restaurant
also serves as a beach bar with ice creams, cold drinks and other
Cala Mendia holiday resort
Cala Mendia is a small and quiet holiday resort. The town was
developed in the early 90ís and it has a relatively high percentage
of private vacation homes. The same is true for the neighboring
towns of Cala Anguila and Romantica.
There are a few stores in the area,
among them a supermarket and a pharmacy. There is a much greater
selection in nearby Porto Cristo, which is easily accessible by taxi
or bus. In Porto Cristo you also find Coves del Drac caves, which
are one of the greatest tourist attractions in Mallorca.
