Are you planning on enjoying the Majorcan coast and relaxing in one of our beautiful villas in Majorca? Here is another of our suggestions for the north of the island, specifically, in the municipality of Capdepera: Cala Mesquida.
Although its original name is s'Arenal de sa Mesquida, it is known worldwide as Cala Mesquida. Together with Cala Molto and Cala Agulla, it forms a natural group of beaches of extraordinary value, so much so that they were declared a Natural Area of Special Interest by the Illes Balears Parliament in 1991.
Access by car is easy, but be aware of the signs on the Arta-Capdepera road. It is an extremely protected unspoilt environment, so the final stretch to Cala Mesquida, approximately 200 meters, needs to be done on foot.
This wide beach also has a dune system at its end, where we highlight the dune known as "d'es Munt Gros", populated by mastic and pines. The right side, extending up to Cala Agulla, is home to one of the largest colonies of seagulls and cormorants in the Balearic archipelago.
The prevailing winds in this area are from the north, northeast and northwest. However, in summer, this beach offers clear and calm waters that are well worth taking a refreshing dip in.
Length of the beach: 300 meters
Average width: 130 meters
Degree of occupancy: High
Type of beach: Semi-urban
