Cala CastellWild and beautiful beach that is calm and peaceful and only known by the locals
This wild and remote beach is not for the faint hearted. Cala Castell is 12 kilometres from Pollença. The beach was given its by the 13th century Castell del Rei, which used to defend the coastal area and has breathtaking panoramic views over the north of Mallorca and across to the island of Menorca on a good day.
The isolated beach is located at the end of a cliff and is divided into two coves, formed by pebbles, gravel and some sand. Getting to this beach is not easy. You can take the car to Cala Barques and then from there you will have to start to walk along the coast crossing the Pas des Pescadors, which leads to this privileged natural environment.
There is another possibility of getting here and that is to drive the car until you reach the possessió (rural finca) of Ternelles and then you will need to walk along the track that leads to Cala Castell which is a good 10 kilometres walk. Probably not best to do this in the high of summer. It does however mean that you get the beach to yourself.
