This beach has a really beautiful setting but don't believe the guidebooks: it's not shingle or even pebble, it is rock, which makes getting in and out of the water treacherous, even with special shoes. Secondly, it is plagued by jellyfish. One to visit for a drink and look out to sea, not for the bathing!

Mallorca top 10; the guardian travel; google images - they all lie. Reviews and fellow travellers have told of us a lovely little secluded pebble cove, watch out for whose super yacht is parked in the bay, well worth the 40 minute walk down a steep hillside. Unless I took a wrong turn somewhere this was the most disappointing beach... More

When you come to Deia, you feel the vibes of creativity. Wherever you turn, there is art - paintings, sculptures, interior design... The place is multicultural - artists have come to live here from elsewhere. They all speak different languages, but have one thing in common: made Mallorca their home. Deep in my hreat I know that will go back... More

Pebbly 'hippy' cove with caves to swim out to and explore, great for swimming and dining - two restaurants, one informal for snack meals and drinks, the other slightly more formal serves nicer meals. Love it

From Deia village church to the cove-cala Deia is about 40min downhil-45min uphill to go back via a very old mule path clearly sigh-posted. The large boulders and rocks make the beach even smaller but a refreshing dip is the reward for the walk. Quite expensive seafood restaurant in the old boatshelters in Cale Deia

It's a cove, that's the plus point, negatives are that it's overcrowded, and that entering the water on a choppy day is a bit dangerous. Most people didn't even seem to be interested in swimming, which was strange as that seemed the better alternative to lying on rocks (no sand, just large rocks everywhere). I would say you need to...

We spent a restful and wonderful two weeks in Deia to go walking in the Tramuntana mountains and for this reason Deia was perfectly situated. We rented a lovely cottage which was on the footpath to Cala de Deia beach. Deia is overpriced, the restaurants (those which are good) are vastly overpriced. There is a nice little café which serves... More

I love those hidden gems, just like I imagine Cala Deia would be. However, we were disappointed first by the fact that the beach area has turned into a construction site, and furthermore, the amount of visitors to this small beach. It's very difficult to reach by car, nauseating road down. Not really worth the effort if you are traveling... More

If you have small kids (ours are aged 9 &7) I wouldn't bother. The drive down the mountain in the car is pretty hairy and when you get there you'll find a sand-less beach covered in rocks, not pebbles, if you can see it through the throngs of people who seem to love it. I really wouldn't recommend it.
