It was a beautiful little beach with very clear water. I'd recommend leaving my car up on the main road and walk down from there. Try the right side first to take in the complete environment and take some scenic pics! You can go swimming from the beach, but also from the rocks on the other side. Beautiful blue water.... More

This place is really pretty, but if you want a bit of a quiet time, you should walk to the far end and go over the rocks to the more abandoned parts. Downside is that it got shady pretty early.

The beach although in the amex guide does not worth the visit. There is no sand and there are rocks all over the water, you must wear special shoes. Although the view is nice i did not enjoy like the other beaches ive visited in the north side of the island. Portinatx cala was much better and is just right... More

A busy beach, so avoid at weekends in August. We spent a lovely day here swimming and snorkeling. There is a restaurant on the beach. Only bought drinks and ice cream there, but they the most expensive ones we bought during our holiday.

I love this place . A typical cherringitto on the beach serving delicious fresh seafood and salads . Service amazing , good wines and always busy . You will need to book . Try the garlic ( toasted ) King prawns and whole fish . These guys have a limited space to work in and therefore their achievements are even... More

Searching out a quieter, more picturesque beach was our aim and we weren't disappointed. Beautiful sea swimming and not too crowded even though we went in peak season!

I was expecting a nicer beach having visited other calas on the island. It was empty which was nice but there was too much seaweed for me. The beach is also stone, whereas I prefer sand. There was a nice outlook from the beach out to the sea and surround cliffs, like other calas. Personally I would say go to... More

This is a lovely beach but very limited parking - you need to get there early. Rentable sun loungers etc.
