About Cala Anguila
Cala Anguila is a small, cove beach that is part of a holiday resort community called Cala Romantica on the eastern coast of Mallorca. It is about 20 minutes to Mallorca’s second largest city, Manacor, and about 10 minutes by car to the port town of Porto Cristo. One of three lovely cove beaches, including S’Estany d’en Mas and Cala Mendina, Cala Anguila is only 50 metres long and about 120 wide. It has fine, white sand, and crystal clear turquoise water that is excellent for snorkelling.
There are no water sports for hire here but you can rent sunbeds and umbrellas for the day. Though there are low-level vacation homes scattered around here, it is not overwhelming and the natural limestone cliffs and pine trees create a beautiful, secluded environment. There is a small restaurant here serving food and drinks to stay and to go. There are showers and toilet facilities on site.
The second largest town located on the north-eastern corner of Mallorca, Manacor is considered to be an industrial town offering lots of local shops, restaurants and bars. […] Manacor

The public bus from Porto Cristo does make stops here but check schedules for times. There is a small staircase that gives access to the beach making wheelchair accessibility difficult.
Cala Anguila is a safe and family-friendly beach with calm waters and a lifeguard on duty in peak summer months.
You can come by boat and anchor here for the day. Portocristo is the nearest full-service port.
Things to do on Cala Anguila
Because of its small size, Cala Anguila remains free of water sports and activities, which is probably best considering the peak crowds in summer. Snorkelling and swimming are very popular here. Walking is also a nice thing to do and access to nearby beaches, including S’Estany d’en Mas and Cala Mendina, is made by walking along the trails of the adjacent cliffs.
Restaurants on Cala Anguila
There is one small beachfront restaurant here that serves good, family friendly food and another restaurant a few minutes walking in the side streets of the vacation community. There is a small supermarket for necessities here as well.
For more of a selection, Porto Cristo offers many good restaurants and different cuisines.
