The beach in general
Cala Santanyi has a nice and large sand beach, which is located deep
inside a rocky bay. The beach is very similar to the beaches in Cala
d’Or, but the beach in Cala Santanyi is more spacious.
The beach is approx. 130 metres long
and 80 metres wide. The sand is fine-grained, whereas the water is
very clear and almost always calm.
The beach offers all the usual
facilities, such as sun lounges, sunshades, showers and toilets.
During the high season, the beach is supervised by a lifeguard.
Behind the beach, there is a large
parking space for visitors arriving by car. This is also where the
bus from Cala d’Or stops.
There is usually plenty of room to play at the beach. The water is
relatively shallow and there are hardly any waves, so in general,
the beach is very child-friendly.

conditions along the rocks are good and you will be able to see a
lot of beautiful fish.
There are many submerged caves and
