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.

It's not easy to reach but It's also for this reason that Cala de Deia is so beautiful. You can get it from Deià Village, on foot through a steep trail with olive groves, (I would definitely recommend wearing appropriate shoes) or you can go by car to the parking. If you want to eat there are two restaurants. It's... More

This is a very small pebbly and rocky beach which was covered with posidonia when we were there. We drove down a small winding road by motorbike. There is parking available for a fee down below. We saw a lot of hikers walking down along a narrow coastal path which might be a nice hike. We just sat down on... More

This is a nice but crowded beach apparently having gained celeb status. The sea this summer was fabulously warm and relaxing. There is a litle shade against the rock face that surrounds the cove. There is a small cafe restaurant along the back of the beach which actually was rather good if basic. Children loved it. You do need a... More

After deciding to take a day trip from Palma to both Valldemossa and Deia in one day (totally do-able), I arrived in Deia in the afternoon. Because it was early November, Deia was in a very sleepy condition, and was not as beautiful or interesting as Valldemossa. After wandering around for an hour and a half, I decided to hike... More
