About
This remote beach and shallow bay on the southeastern coast of Mallorca is a popular spot for swimming and snorkeling. The white sandy shore is quite small and unusually shaped so come early to secure a spot, especially during the peak summer season. There are a couple of sun loungers by the beach bar that you can rent and space for you to spread out your beach towel. The cove is surrounded by steep cliff walls covered in foliage, and you'll find loads of travelers jumping off into the clear waters from some of the lower ledges. You can explore Cala Llombards along with other coves in the area on a boat tour. – Tripadvisor

    This beach is everything that is advertised! It was as breathtakingly beautiful as the pictures show. Clear waters with great opportunities to snorkel, cliff dive or just enjoy a leisurely swim. There was a Chiringuito (beach bar with food) that had a small seafood assortment, chicken tenders, burgers and alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. The only downside was the amount of people on the beach. Get there early to get a spot especially if you want a beach with an umbrella. That will run you about €15 for two chairs and I highly recommend it. This is a must see when you visit the island.

    Short Trip to Mallorca in June
    My wife and I stayed at Cala Santanyi on Mallorca for a week in June 2024. We hired a car and rented an airbnb apartment just a short walk from the beach. In June the water was about 20 degrees and on our first 2 days it was absolutely crystal clear. The beautiful aqua-blue was absolutely stunning. But as the week progressed a green algae appeared and it didn't go away, so we chose to swim at Cala Llombards - only 10 mins away. Having a car was the best choice we made. We were able to drive to Cala Llombards and this became our beach of choice for the holiday. There are very few early risers in Mallorca and we would arrive at the beach by 8.30am to an empty car park and the beach to ourselves. This beach is absolutely stunning, with its crystal-clear water and an abundance of fish to see if you have goggles. Over the course of the week, we explored many beaches, but Llomards was definitely our pick due to the clear water and the short drive from our apartment. One day we drove to Palma de Mallorca and caught the Historic Train to Soller, and the tram to Port de Soller. While the train ride was quite scenic, the sheer volume of tourists made this day quite struggle. The huge crowds in Soller just made me feel sorry for the local residents, as their beautiful town was overrun. Santanyi Markets are a sight to see. The stalls go for blocks and the abundance of fruit and veggies, arts, clothes, food, etc, is amazing.. There are also plenty of places to have a coffee and eat some great local food. In one week, we only scratched the surface of the things to do in Mallorca. We were after a relatively quiet week of swimming and exploring and we really enjoyed our stay. I would highly recommend both Cala Santanyi and Llombards as beaches you should visit. Also, I believe you need a car to be able to find the out of the way places that make Mallorca so special.

    Nice beach
    Even it was middle of June all sunbeds were occupied when we arrived around 11 am. But we found a place to park our car very easy. This beach is popular among residents. Cristal clear, shallow water without waves, not too cold nor too warm, was just perfect. My kid really love it. There is a beach bar, where you can buy drinks and ice cream.

This is a truly beautiful beach, made popular by Instagram apparently. The parking is somewhat small so I suspect it's very busy in high season. We didn't pay for sun loungers as plenty of space on the sand, a brief glance at the price showed that they were quite expensive, around 22 euros for 2 and unsure if that included the parasol. However, the sand is soft and white, the water is shallow and crystal clear. There's a very vocal/comical guy that sells fruit (watermelon, mangoes, pineapples, coconut) Great beach for kids and super for snorkeling.

This was definitely worth a visit. Clean beach, pure sand and no seaweed. Kids loved to jump off the low cliffs, accessible with a ladder. There were larger cliffs as well.

Beach chairs costs 15 euro. The bar was a bit expensive, so might consider bringing your own drinks and snacks.

It was easy to park at this beach. There was no water fountain to wash your feet.

Very pretty beach with nice clear water and some good waves. It gets quite busy but when the capacity gets reached they also close the beach off for new visitors because of Covid. There is one stand that does food and drinks, however in the afternoon they only serve the few tables they have food so make sure you bring some with you.

Good beach, surrounded by a forest and stones which makes a perfect Cala. There on the sides of the Cala are stones and cliffs with forest which make a good viewpoint to the sea.
Free parking is almost at the beach.
No showers.
Beach has it own bar but for me it was a little bit expensive (ice cream size same as lollipop cost around 4 euros).
Remote toilets are there but during the day, they became unusable...

let me tell you about Cala Llombards in Mallorca - it's like the beach heard about the concept of "personal space" and went, "Nah, not for me!" If you're a fan of rubbing elbows (and sunscreen) with strangers, this is your paradise. I mean, who needs personal space when you can make new friends by accidentally kicking sand in their faces?

And don't even get me started on finding parking. You'd have better luck hunting for a mythical sea monster in those waters. I had to park my rental car in the next town and hitchhike back, and I'm pretty sure the driver was also headed to the same beach!

Lovely beach with soft sand and beautiful cobalt water. Suspect parking would be tricky in high season as the car park is quite small with limited spaces. Definately worth a visit though

This Cala is smaller than Cala Pi, but it has rock terraces on both shores where you can jump from. On the beach there is a beach bar. The sand and the water are very beautiful but the beach and also the parking place are very very crowded in high season.
