Type of beach rock
Cala Blanca

Cala Blanca is situated at two kilometres from Camp de Mar, between sa Punta des Bancals and Cala en Cranc, as well as under sa Talaia (300 metres high). This v-shaped sea inlet finishes on a small cove, which is beautiful, virgin and quiet, with a platform at the rear irrigated by a torrent, some medium-high cliffs on the sides, and a beach with gravel and pebbles covered by rests of posidonia.

This is a dry and steep landscape, where you will find scrubland and pine trees, and also a small place for the few local visitors who come to this privileged place. The marine and underwater conditions for anchoring boats are good on this coastal stretch which is exposed to the winds from the southeast. The ground is rocky with some sandy area and the depth ranges between three and five metres. The nearest port facilities are located at Club Nàutic Santa Ponça, at 3,9 nautical miles.

The accessibility by car is easy following the signs until Camp de Mar. at two kilometres from there, toward Port d‘Andratx, there is a track that takes you to the surroundings of Cala Llamp. This is where you will have to park your private car. From this point you have to do a two hectometres walk on a steep trail to reach Cala Blanca.

Municipality information Andratx

The municipality of Andratx is situated at the western end of Majorca, where the Serra de Tramuntana has the lowest mountains (Moleta de s'Esclop, 928 metres) and the coast is characterized by the small coves and high cliffs (up to 300 metres high), with valleys in the interior. The origin of the name is uncertain (four possibilities, celtic, arab, latin or catalan).

The big ecologic richness of this territory explains that 95 percent of the extension is protected by law, with sa Dragonera, the small island with the biggest extension of the Balearic Islands (2,88 hectares, 3,7 kilometres long, na Pòpia, a hill of 353 metres and natural reserve since 1995), la Trapa (Zona de Especial Protección para las Aves) and the agricultural valleys of Andratx, s'Arracó and Camp de Mar (Áreas Naturales de Interés Paisajístico).

The coastal area in rich in very old and medieval shipwrecks. King Jaume I d'Aragó and his troop anchored between sa Dragonera and Sant Elm on the 7th of December 1229, three days before conquering Majorca. Between the 15th and the 17th centuries it suffered pirate attacks. Port d'Andratx was the most important Spanish port infrastructure in the 19th century, for the transport of soap toward the mainland and America. The construction and the tourism lead the economy since the end of the seventies of the 20th century.
