Calo des Marmol (the marble bay) is
located in the southeast corner of Mallorca.
The beach in general
Calo des Marmol is a remote bay with a sandy beach, far away from
Mallorca's bustling resorts.
The 40 meter long beach is surrounded
by high cliffs with sporadic vegetation. The sand is white and fine,
however sometimes mixed with gravel.
The water is literally crystal clear.
There are not many visitors. A small
number of visitors arrive by boat, while others walk the 5.5 km.
long path from the lighthouse at Cap de ses Salines.
It is a challenging hike, especially
in the heat. However, the beach is worth the trip. Remember to bring
food and plenty of water.
The beach is child friendly, but the walk from the lighthouse to the
beach is not suited for children.
The conditions for snokeling are good.
