About
This tiny stretch of coast along Mallorca’s southern shoreline attracts travelers with its turquoise waters and scenic surroundings. Here, you can snorkel with multicolored fish, spend the day lounging on the white sand, trek the surrounding cliffs around Calo Des Moro or even take a boat tour to discover the other stunning beaches and sights in the area. The beach can get quite busy, especially during summer, so try to get there early if you want to get a good spot. To get there, you'll need to hike a rocky path from the parking lot. Amenities are limited as well, so remember to pack all the food and supplies you need. – Tripadvisor

    One of the Prettiest Beaches we visited
    This is without question one of the prettiest beaches we visited in Mallorca. It is also one of the most difficult to reach. There are signs for this beach and from the signs to the top of the cliff above the beach it is about a ten minute walk to the cliff above the beach. Then you still have to get down to the beach. You can also reach it from Cala s’Alumina. That way takes twelve to fifteen minutes and has better views. It passes through private property so you must stay on the marked path, but you get to enjoy the garden. Get there early because the parking fills up fast. And so does the beach. There is probably room for only 100 people there near the water. No umbrella rentals here. If you want shade, you will need to climb into one of the caves in the cliff. Getting down is not for anyone with bad knees or balance problems.

    Crowded, no beach at high tide.
    We went at 10:30am. There was already no where to park. It was so crowded. We walked down and saw the amount of people on the very small beach, and decided to go to another beach nearby. At that time of day, there was no beach yet because of high tide. There was no room to sit on the beach.

    Clearest water in Europe
    We parked for free as we came into town, signposted beach parking. From there it is a 15 minute walk to S’Almonia and a further 5 minute walk to Des Moro. We got there for 10:15 on a Friday morning, end of September. There was nowhere for us to sit/lie together, it really is that packed that early. If you are going after that time you are throwing your bag on a rock and standing up, unless you are swimming. It’s so beautiful though. Definitely a hour or 90 minute beach. It’s not somewhere you are comfortable for a longer period of time.

It it probably the best way to start a cove-hunting day! It is one of the prettiest coves I've seen, the colours are just amazing. However it is extremely busy and small; and there is some 15 minutes walking involved from the parking.

Therefore I recommend going very early, walking there and spending some time in the gardened areas curated by a local association. From there do not miss small rocky cove of s'Almunia, just beside it. Easy to spend the morning with these two already.

We later moved on to cala Mondrago, but there must be more pretty coves around so make the most of it :)

Parking (free) is off main Camí de Cala Llombards at entrance to town. It truly is a 15-20 minute walk to the calas. Parking and vehicle access to visitors is prohibited long the roads to the calas, but road is paved so walking is easy. Once you get to the area of the two calas, you have two choices: down a rocky path to Caló des Moró, or continue down the paved road and then at the end follow the (steep) steps down to Cala s'Almunia.

Both are incredible! The actual vistas are just like the pictures you see on the internet. We went July 1, Thursday, and there were a ton of people. With two teens we got a late start and got there at noon and there literally was not even an inch of free space on the sand of Caló des Moró (I've never seen anything like it). We went instead to Cala s'Almunia, literally a 5 minute walk on well marked trail. Kudos to the friendly care takers of the area who have painstakingly planted and cared for the vegetation between the two calas.

If you want more "beach" I'd go early and go to des Moró - the beach although small is sandy and so is the bottom of the cala. If you want to jump in the water off rocks or snorkel I'd go to s'Almunia.

There was a small mobile kiosko selling cold water, soda and beer at both.

Note: May not be ideal for small children or older adults with mobility issues - as mentioned, access is via steep path or steep steps (and then to get down to the actual sand of des Moró you again have to climb down a brief but steep path).

We came to have a nice afternoon with my family and could not even get in. You have a 15 minute walk from the parking and then you basically have to do trekking to get to the beach, which is packed. The place is gorgeous that is true. However, due to Covid-19 restrictions it has a capacity that fills instantly. When we arrived there the guard told us there was a 2 hour queue in order to get in. I would recommend going very early in the morning and prepared to walk through a mountain path.

There're many Cala's/Calo's (coves) on Majorca eastern coast. This one is on the southeastern tip and counts as more beautiful one.
However, beware you have some 10-15 min trekking from the parking lot (same when coming back), and once there expect it to be very crowded.
Imo, there're many others as I said, you can park right by and have great time without efforts in day heat and less crowded.

COVID soup bay, extremely crowded rocks with zero beach space after a long trek on minuscule paths. Very far from parking, not worth the sun stroke. Full of teenagers posing for profile photos.

The place it self is beautiful, BUT ... the place is degraded with idiots who moor ships there and play loud music (bum, bum, bum)!
I am sad when I see, how nobody care such treasures and doesnt protect, so that we can enjoy such piece of wild beautyful nature.
Mallorca please, make prohibitions to stop parking boats in such rare bay´s.
