About Cala Falco
Cala Falco is a small, pristine cove beach in the municipality of Calvia in the southwest of Mallorca, about 20 minutes from Palma. Only 40-metres long, with no hotels or shops, this jewel-like beach is an ideal escape from the busier, nearby resort towns such as Magaluf and Palma Nova.
Cala Falco boasts clear, calm waters, a small area of white sand and low rocks on which many people place their towel as space is limited. There are some sunbeds and tiki parasols available for hire, but there are no water sports activities apart swimming and snorkelling. This is a popular beach for locals, as well as younger tourists, especially Germans and Italians, looking for a calm day at the beach.
There are no facilities on site at this beach and only one small beach bar but it does the trick with drinks and a small menu of food, so you won’t go hungry for the day. Cala Falco is surrounded by low-level cliffs and rocks with pine trees and bushes.
Peaceful bays, breathtaking scenery and lively holiday resorts are all part of what makes the Southwest of Mallorca special. […] The Southwest Region of Mallorca
Magaluf is the essential place for many parties. Live music, several major tourist attractions and a large beach make this a popular spot on the island. […] Magaluf
Access and Safety
Cala Falco is accessed by car taking the exit towards Magaluf off of the main MA-1 highway. Cala Falco is not overtly marked on the road in so it’s best to use GPS or ask for help along the way if needed. There is free parking along the dirt roads and a small, paid parking area nearest to the 250-metre long stairway that brings you down to the beach. There is no public transport and you won’t see tourist buses here.
With the long stairway to the beach, Cala Falco is not very wheelchair accessible or easily reached if you are disabled.
This is a good cove beach to anchor your boat for the day thanks to the deeper waters and sandy base.
There is no lifeguard on duty here.
