We twice did the walk to Cala Murta as the route down has plenty of shade so it's great on a hot day. We also enjoyed meeting the wild donkeys and the mountain goats on route. It's worth noting the donkeys are likely to turn up if you try to use the picnic tables. The beach was stony and had a small number of people on it so there was plenty of space to distance. The swimming was very pleasant and whilst I didn't do it at this beach I imagine snorkeling would be good.

Cala Murta is accessed along the Formentor peninsula.

You head for Cap De Formentor and past the Royal Hotel, Formentor Beach.
A short drive after the latter you come to a rough car park on your left, the entrance is quite rough but once in it's not too bad, it's free and it's good for Cala Figuera and Cala Murta.

To get to Murta you have to back track down the road a short walk where the sign post for Murta begins.

The path is paved and really easy to walk along, you travel past a campsite and continue through a wooded area down to the beach. It's a lovely walk and if your lucky you will come across wild donkeys that roam the area, we heard them but didn't see any.
The walk is under an hour.

There is no sand at Murta it's all rock and pebbles but the bay is sheltered and has plenty of room but can get busy.

The bay is good for swimming and snorkelling and gets really deep quite quick, snorkelling is good with shoals of fish from Trevallys (small) Needle Fish, Wrasse, Anchovies, Mullet, and other small shoal fish, plenty of Urchins, Hermit Crabs etc.

There are no facilities or toilets, NO BINS so rubbish must be taken back with you!

Great spot to get away from the summer crowds. We pulled in on a boat and did some snorkelling - very peaceful and lovely surrounds with calm blue water and high walled mountain on either side. Watch out for the cheeky billy goat who will shamelessly gobble your lunch and does not respond well to being shooed away.

If you look very carefully, you can spot the small sign to this cove. There's a bumpy car park just up the road from the carefully concealed path, running through protected land to a pretty little cove. Because it's not readily accessible, this cove is relatively quiet. The walk down takes about 15 minutes along a lovely wooded path with goats wandering around. It is downhill (so uphill on the way back!) but it is so peaceful it's worth it.

We took the bus to the Cala Figuera/ Cala Murta stop (€1.55 each way, very convenient but know that buses back to Port de Pollença fill up quickly in the afternoon). On the walk from the road to the beach you do have to go through a gate with lots of signs that made it seem to us that we were going into private property. We carried on and it was about a 25 min walk to the beach from the road. Think the signs must have put others off as well because it was so quiet when we arrived (noon), compared to Cala figura across the other side of the road. Would recommend watershoes for both beaches. Had a lovely time at the beach. Beware of people feeding the wild goats on the beach .. it just encourages the goats to go rifling through people’s bags when they are out swimming!! All in all, hidden gem.

A lovely little beach away from the masses.

Its a 25 or so minute walk from the nearest car park on main road ** down an easy seldom used bush road.
The beach is rocky though small and rounded rocks so not to hard on the feet if prefer bare feet to sandles or beach shoes. A few meters into the water though are some nice big sandy patches and shallow enough to stand. Its a lovely spot in a valley, and with some trails at least on one side above where in 10 mins you can walk to the point and see all the way back towards Port de Pollensa

We visited on a weekday during August holidays and I counted about 50 other people & 1 goat there along the 80m beach.
The goal appeared out of nowhere and had a grand old time rummaging through bags for food left on their own. In fact, it wasn't to shy in getting up close to bags where people where near either - so be warned to have someone watching your food at all times!

Could have stayed all day here!

** From the car door to shore is 2,800 'steps' (for me according to fitbit). In another measure the return journey took 30 minutes exactly (without a typical 5 yr olds required breaks and dawdles it would be less)

If you have a car then this is a great trip. Past the Playa de Formentor. It's well
Sign posted on the right hand side of the road and there is parking just past the sign on the left. Take it easy over the rocky road. As you walk in it seems to say no entry. Ignore that, there is a walker sign. Just follow the path down to the cove. I would say at least 25 mins. There are no showers or toilets at the cove. There are picnic tables. It's a great view and cool swimming. We had donkeys and goats come up to us at the cove. They will "beg" but just ignore them. The beach is pebbly but it's ok. Several groups came in on various boats to anchor. If by car you can pull in the Mirador Formentor.

Lovely beach but a long trek with kids , saw donkeys walking down to beach plus goats ,
Rocky beach ,unfortunately a few jelly fish in the sea ,it was a quiet unspoilt little bit of paradise, worth a visit but watch out for jellyfish .

It's a nice walk down to this beach but sadly, not the quiet location we had hoped for. Maybe we should have known better in August?

Lots of families with kids screaming and endless inflatables!

After more and more arrived we left after 30 mins!
