Tour 3: Cala Morlanda beach and Punta de n'Amer castle
Cala Millor, Sa Coma, S'Illot and Cala Morlanda.
Cala Morlanda and Punta de n'Amer: Just 5 km south of the popular resort of Cala Millor, on the east coast of Mallorca, is the small stone beach, Cala Morlanda. Very close to the Porto Cristo resort with its famous dragon caves. Nestled in a rocky bay, Cala Morlanda beach is well connected to the southern edge of a small holiday resort.
The rocky walls of the small bay are particularly popular with the young people of the neighboring village, because here you can jump into the clear blue water of the Mediterranean from a height of five meters. Less exciting is the entrance to the rest area of the small beach, which consists essentially of a large bed of dry algae.
Many locals in the surrounding streets come here to refresh themselves, whether with friends or family. Full of snacks and drinks, spend a few hours relaxing and hassle-free in the water. The atmosphere is familiar and you will quickly feel like a real inhabitant of the Balearic Islands during your holidays in Mallorca. This beach offers the possibility, unlike the tourist beaches of Mallorca, to see once in the daily life of the Mallorcan people, totally genuine and without the usual tourist mass. Three narrow stone stairs go down the rocky wall to the narrow strip of algae. This is so soft that you can extend your towel on the ground. Small caves in the rock even offer some shaded places. Sun loungers and parasols are not available in Cala Morlanda. It is also necessary to dispense with the suppliers of gastronomy and water sports. But you can reach some well-known resorts within walking distance, in order to strengthen yourself with the usual national food. The road to the water is at first very stony, bathing shoes are very advisable here. Directly behind the narrow stone barrier, the sea floor is very sandy. The ground drops very fast, so you can't walk far in the water and since there are no lifeguards, you need to pay more attention to young children. However, the rapid deepening of the water makes it possible to take relaxing courses at sea. There are some underwater caves. A diving school in the neighboring village uses these conditions for its beginners and advanced courses.
Sa Punta de n ’Amer stands out for its flora and fauna, where dune, garrigue, pine forest and rocky communities coexist. Some endemic species of the Balearic Islands are also located. Punta de n'Amer is a recommended area for hiking trails. Museum and Bar-Restaurant open all year.
