About Cala Mitjana
Another one of Mallorca’s hidden gems, Cala Mitjana (not to be confused with the north-eastern Cala Mitjana), is located on the east coast of Mallorca, a few kilometres north of the popular resort of Cala d’Or, in the municipality of Felanitx. It neighbours the lovely, cove beach of Cala Sa Nau, which is the point of departure for reaching Mitjana, which is only accessible by foot or by boat.
Cala Mitjana is a small, open bay surrounded by low level cliffs and trees. The beach itself, soft white sand, is only about 20-metres long, but it is possible to recline on the low rocks as well. This is quiet beach due to its secluded status, it lies at the end of a private road, but in July and August expect to see some crowds, particularly locals, mainland Spanish and German tourists. The water is crystal clear and very calm, which is great for children, however the 20-minute walk to arrive is a difficult journey for smaller children and parents.
There are no facilities and no umbrellas or lounge chairs for hire, nor water sports activities. The beach is too small and too remote.
