“Good snorkelling spot”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

We went to cala xarraca after the lady in the moped-hire shop recommended it as a snorkelling destination. There's good parking and road access taking you right to the beach, there's also a restaurant but we didn't eat there. The beach is two little bays, the first with a strip of soft sand and then pebbles at the waterline. There's a lot of seaweed debris, which is what you'd lay your towel down on (very comfy but blows everywhere!). The second little cove is accessed by a walk around the rocks (leftwards as you face the sea) which is not suitable for young kids. The entry to the water is rocky but this little cove is quieter and the water clearer (freer of seaweed debris) so better for snorkelling. Maybe it was bad luck, but we didn't actually see much marine life on our day there, but it was really fun (and SO pretty!) nonetheless.

“Average”
Reviewed June 4, 2012

This was supposed to be a top attraction to see in Portinatx but we found it underwhelming, only spent half hour there

“Lovely views, good fresh seafood - bit pricey!”
Reviewed May 5, 2012

You do pay for the views, we had paella and it was good, just be prepared to pay 25% more than other places for the location.

Not really suitable for kids because it's mostly seafood, or steak, they do not do chicken, pasta, pizzas etc.

“Beautiful Bay”
Reviewed April 8, 2012

A lovely small bay with a stretch of fine sand amongst rocky coves. There is quite a lot of seaweed in places, but this doesn't detract too much (and its hard to find a bay without it). It is possible to scramble up the low cliffs for great views, or to find a road/track from the back of the restaurant to avoid the scramble. We did not eat in the restaurant, but took some drinks and ice creams (usual prices)
