Before decending into Cala Xarraca it is worthwhile pulling into the hard shoulder of the road (safely) and taking in the sights of the beautiful views Cala Xarraca has to offer. The views of the boats on the deep blue clear water is breathtaking and well worth seeing. As you descend down into Cala Xarraca, you will not be disappointed... More

stunning little bay, when we visited there were a few top end motor boats moored up, there were about 8 sun loungers on the beach. This is a small beach mainly used by locals, it is shingle and extremely hot under foot !!!

Quiet, peaceful, with glorious turquoise and blue water and sandy beach. Great place to go with kids if you want to get away from the crowds. A hidden gem.

The view is just beautiful. But keep your hands away from the restaurant... This is just a touriste trap... The spanish omelette was made with fries and the fish was not fresh...

We stayed nearby and searched the internet and this beach came up a recommended for snorkelling. Spent an afternoon lazing on the beach and swimming / snorkelling. Scenic and sheltered spot. Late afternoon the sun goes behind cliffs at one end. Snorkelling wasn't anything to write home about, we had a better experience at Cala St Vicente. No regrets going... More
