About Cala Llombards
Cala Llombards is a stunning cove beach in the southeast of Mallorca, near to the small village, Es Llombards and about 10 kilometres from Santanyi.
Cala Llombards is a tiny beach at just 55 metres long but stretches far back, almost like a cone shape, to the pine trees and bushes, going nearly 150 metres deep. This secluded beach is surrounded by steep cliffs and rocky areas, as well as pine trees and scrubs. The sand is white and soft and the water is beautifully crystal clear and ideal for snorkeling. There are no waves here, or rarely so, making it ideal for swimming with children as well. Because this beach is a bit tucked away and rather small, it is a popular beach for locals as well as tourists, old and young, particularly Germans, many of whom rent vacation houses nearby. This beach is for relaxing, not a party beach or one with outside activities. You can still see some of the small fisherman’s houses along this cove beach, which adds to its charm.
You can rent lounge chairs and umbrellas and there are a couple of outdoor showers and basic toilets. There are no water activities for hire at Cala Llombards. There is only one beach bar here that offers good snacks and drinks so unless you want to drive to eat, it is recommended to bring some food and drinks along with you.
