Despite visiting in October, this stunning beach was 'perfecto' for some al fresco sunbathing. Very liberating indeed. The beach and the permanent scenery (cliffs etc) was almost eclipsed by the bronzed lovelies (male & female) sprawled across the white sands, soaking the sun's gentle warmth into every inch of their smooth skin. Swimming in the sea here is a must.... More

Someone wrote hidden gem, and that is the real description. This beach is really special, crystal clear water, fine sand. It is just around the corner 10 minutes walk from Macarella, so you can do both beaches in a day. Highly recommended!

An energetic stroll from Cala Galdana reveals a little gem of a place in Cala Macarella and Macarelleta. The clear and transparent waters and lush vegetation make this area a feast for the senses. Pictures do not do it justice. Go see for yourself.

Some of the clearest waters that I have ever seen Beautiful scenic backdrops of natural parks and forests Sea is extremely safe for children The 2 beaches of Macarella and Macarelleta are separated by a 15...

A beautiful bay, really clear water and quieter and cleaner than Macarella. No restaurants or bars, just a natural beach. There was great snorkeling around the rocks on either side too.

The twin beaches are nice and beautiful. But Crowded even in September as space is limited. Access from main road is a problem unless one has own mode of transport. The narrow road leading to the beach sometimes gets choked. So nice beach but did not find the quite I was looking for.

A stunning cove with turquoise seas, white sands and crystal clear waters. To access this beach is not a straightforward job. Realistically you can only get there by car and even then it is a 7km trip down a single track to get to either the paid car park (5 euros per day) that is a short walk to the... More

Tranquil and isolated, it is a small cove with a bar at the top.Its a long walk from cala galdana which takes you along a dirt path, at the cliff edege. As you approach the beach there are a lot of steep wooden steps. As long as you can walk up about 1/4 of steps I recommend you visit as... More

Going in May meant that this idyllic spot was probably emptier than at busy times. But it could not have been better. Perfect sand and clear water with lovely views. We recommend

We started off on Cala Macarella beach and altho lovely, not as beautiful as Cala Macarelleta, which my partner happened to discover on one of his explorations! Only a few minutes walk up the side of the cliff..not ideal for young children or those with walking issues, we were Wowed by the Caribbean looking bay and altho busy, well it... More
