Must see in Majorca
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.
Platja del Port de Pollença
Platja del Port de Pollença or de Levante is situated at six kilometres from Pollença, between Platja de Can Cullerassa and Port de Pollença. Although there is a high development, touristic aswell as residential, it has still the quiet atmosphere it used to have in the past, which explains that this coastal stretch has been an artistic inspiration.
Agatha Christie set her short story Problem in Pollença in this place and the catalan painter Anglada Camarassa lived in the port. This extremely long sandy area which is very narrow at the same time has suffered a regeneration and an artificial expansion with the introduction of coarse-grained sand. Some years ago there was no beach and no sand. The creation has been possible thanks to the breakwater that was built. At a few metres from the coastal stretch of the bay of Pollença there are some pine trees.
The marine and underwater conditions in this bay are not the best ones for anchoring boats, because there is a maximum depth of two metres at a small distance from the coast on a sandy ground, and the strong wind blows from the east- southeast-south. Nevertheless during the summer there are lots of sailing boats anchoring in this area.
The accessibility by car is easy following the signs. The private car can be left on a free parking area. You can also reach this beach with the public transport. The nearest bus stop is located at a few metres from this beach.
These characteristics explain that the beach is very crowded by local visitors and tourists.
Cala Galiota is situated at six kilometres from ses Salines, and it is an urban beach with coarse-grained ochre sand with some rocks on the coast and on the ground.
This piece of coastline of ses Salines is characterized by the fact that the visitors are mostly majorcan families, residents of the not too high buildings next to the transparent water, who are looking for a pleasant place, which you cannot find on the more touristic beaches of the surroundings. Nevertheless they will have to live when Colònia de Sant Jordi is celebrating its festival in the summer. This informal atmosphere explains that there are not many tourists visiting this place.
The slope of Cala Galiota is quite steep, at 50 metres from the coast there is already a depth of two metres and at two hectometres there are five metres on a sandy ground with seaweed. On this beach you have very good conditions for anchoring a boat, although there is no shelter from the wind blowing from the west. The nearest port facilities are located at Port Colònia de Sant Jordi, at 0,1 nautical miles.
The accessibility by car is easy following the signs to Cala Galiota. You can park for free at a few metres from the beach and the nearest bus stop is at 200 metres.
The surroundings of the beach are characterized by a large number of restaurants, especially those who offer fish-based dishes and seafood.
