Cala Torta or s'Aduaia is situated at 10 kilometres from Artà and it is the biggest beach of this municipality.
This beautiful sandy area between low rocky places and mounds of thyme, lentisc, small palms and some pine trees comes from a short sea inlet that finishes on a system of dunes.
This wild beach has a steep slope, it gets deep very soon as a result of the wind together with the swell that reaches the coast of Artà. The fact that the entrance of Cala Torta is very short explains that it is very exposed to the wind blowing from the northwest-north-northeast and east.
It is an excellent place for diving, as well as for anchoring boats on a sandy ground with a depth of five metres, with a manoeuvre that requires an enormous concentration. Nevertheless the beach is very crowded by local visitors and tourists and nudism is allowed. The nearest port facilities are located at Club Nàutic Cala Ratjada, at 5,3 nautical miles.
The accessibility by car is easy following the signs on a sinuous, steep and badly preserved road. The car can be left for free in the surroundings. It is possible to reach this beach by bicycle from Capdepera: 22 kilometres and in Cala Mesquida you have to take a mountain track with red points, located next to a souvenir shop, that leads to this virgin sandy area. You can also walk from Cala Mesquida.
Because of this beach?s situation and exposure to winds, you must pay attention to weather conditions that make swimming and mooring boats unadvisable.
Cala Comtessa or Comptessa is situated at nine kilometres from Palma, between Punta des Bufador and Platja d'Illetes. This beach, es Fortí and Illetes are known as Illetes, and this cove is the smallest one amongst these three.
This u-shaped and small sea inlet finishes on a beach which is surrounded by pine trees and low rocky areas on the sides, which are also used by the visitors to sunbathe. In front of the coast you can see Illot de Caleta.
The marine and underwater conditions are excellent for anchoring boats in Cala Comtessa on a sandy ground with seaweed, where the depth ranges from two to three metres, but you should avoid passing between Illot de sa Caleta and Illot de s'Estenedor because of the sandbanks in this area.
The nearest port facilities are located at Puerto Portals, at 1,3 nautical miles, which is one of the best infrastructures of the Balearic archipelago and Europe, where you can find some of the most beautiful and expensive boats of the Mediterranean basin, some of the best restaurants of the Balearic Islands and some popular night clubs.
The accessibility by car is easy following the signs. The private car can be left on a free parking area next to the beach. There are some stairs that take to the beach. You can also reach this beach with the public transport. The nearest bus stop is located at 300 metres.
Cala Pi is named by the surrounding pine trees and the torrent that flows into its water. It is situated 17 kilometres from Llucmajor and four from the talayotic village of Capocorb, declared Monumento Histórico-Artístico Nacional in 1931, which can be visited after paying a ticket.
This beach goes into the interior for half a kilometre between two vertical walls of more than 30 metres, and the visitor is received by a defence tower of the 16th century. The sand is fine, with only little slope, where we sometimes can find seaweed, and in the surroundings there is a residential area.
The navigators must know that this sandy area is the most sheltered of this area of the majorcan coast, open to south and southeast, when the wind blows from south it is difficult to exit, and near the entrance there are three stones on port side. This is why the boats should enter from the central part to anchor, if they come early and if they are not too big, because there is a depth of from two and five metres on a sandy ground. The nearest port, Club Nàutic s'Estanyol de Migjorn, is situated at four and a half nautical miles.
The accessibility by car is easy and there is a free parking area for private cars. The bus stop is very close. You will have to go down some steep stairs to reach Cala Pi. The influx of local and tourist visitors is not very massive.
