Coll Baix – hidden cove that can only be reached by foot or boat

Tucked away in the middle of nowhere, Coll Baix Beach is a hidden gem waiting to be discovered. It’s just a stone’s throw from the popular resort of Port de Alcudia.

Cala Petita – the ultimate Mediterranean scenery

The name of this charming spot translates to “small cove” in English. Located near the resort town of Porto Cristo, you can park on Avinguda Cala Petita and enjoy a pleasant one-kilometer walk to reach this hidden gem. The cove itself is cozy, just 50 meters wide and 20 meters long. As you follow the coast, you’ll encounter an inlet known as the “horseshoe” because of its distinctive shape. This unique formation likely originated from the collapse of a karstic cavity, a natural cave formed by the erosion of limestone rock. Over time, the cave opened to the sea and eventually collapsed, creating this picturesque cove. As you explore this stretch of coastline, you’ll notice other coves formed in a similar way. It’s a perfect spot to unwind and enjoy nature’s quirks.

Cala Figuera – breath-taking views in a unique setting

Cala Figuera is one of the most well-known Mediterranean coves in the Formentor area. Formentor itself is one of the top spots to visit in Mallorca, known for its stunning, popular beaches that are a magnet for tourists. But if you’re in the mood for something a bit more off the beaten path, head to Cala Figuera. This beach offers breathtaking views and a sense of tranquility. You can park at the top and take a short walk down to the beach. Once there, you’ll spot a small house on the left, an “escar” from old times when fishermen used it to store their boats and gear. If you have some extra time, consider taking a short walk to nearby Cala Murta, which also has a lovely picnic area. Both spots are perfect for those looking to enjoy the quieter side of Mallorca.

Cala Egos – as stunning as it gets

When talking about Cala Egos, we’re talking about the one located near Andratx, so don’t mix it up with another Cala Egos, found near to Cala d’Or. After exploring Port de Andratx, finding this cove feels like a true reward. Interestingly, there were once plans to build luxurious constructions here, but thankfully, they never materialized. Forget about driving; the best way to get here is by foot or bike. The cove is about 150 meters long, with crystal-clear water and a pebble shoreline. It’s a hidden gem perfect for those who appreciate nature’s untouched beauty.
