“A lovely little beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

We don't like crowds so we would get there at 8 am and swim/snorkel until 10.30. By this time the beach was absolutely packed (and the sun was very hot). You can park by the side of the road and walk down the steps to the beach, or there is a car park (fee payable). There are toilets at the back of the beach and a beach bar, massage area and sunbeds/umbrellas (not too expensive.) As you look at the sea, snorkelling along the left side rocks was best. We even saw some sea birds swimming under water which was a first for us. The water was ice cold in June. Altogether a lovely little beach.

It is a beautiful little beach, clean and not too busy. The sea is clear and you can swim quite far before the dark seaweed area appears. There is are a few nice little coves around.

“Paradise on Majorca”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2011

Cala Sa Nau is the nicest beach we've ever visited (and I include the west coast of Florida and the Bahamas on that!) - but I'm wary of even saying this as I want to still be able to get a sunbed on our next visit!

I much prefer coves to long stretches of beach and Cala Sa Nau was perfect. Small but perfectly packaged.

Very natural setting, without the hotels and apartment complexes which surround the nearby (and very nice!) coves in Cala D'Or. This is the perfect spot for snorkelling in unbelievably clear water, for jumping from the rocks or simply chilling on the beach.

The sunbeds have the most wonderful bed like cushions and the well stocked bar/cafe has a really welcoming feel to it..... It was busy when we were there (early August), so try to get there early morning or late afternoon.

Our kids aren't massive beach fans. But they were more than happy to stay here all day without complaint and would regard our 3 visits as highlights of our 2 week holiday. Will definitely return one day!
