Arenal de sa Canova

Cala en Tugores

A beautiful natural beach is Cala en Tugores. This natural bay is about 7 kilometers from Ses Salines and cannot be reached by car. The walk, depending on where you park the car, is about 3.5 kilometers (if you come from Ses Salines towards the lighthouse) or about 5 kilometers (if you come from Colonia de Sant Jordi via the beaches).
You should anchor here with caution, as the shore water is very shallow and juts far out into the sea. There are also many underwater rocks that are often not visible to the naked eye. The bay in the south of Mallorca is about 75 kilometers from Cala Ratjada and can be reached in about 1 ½ hours by car.
