Andratx
Type of beach rock
Cala es Conills also known as Cala Conills, Cala Molins

Cala es Conills, Cala Conills or Cala Molins is situated at nine kilometres from Andratx. This beautiful small corner is covered by pebbles and gravel surrounded by a rocky area of sandstone (marès), and with some beached boats and escars here and there.

This beach used to be a marès quarry in the past. The scientist think that the blocks that came from here were used to build el Castell. In 1394 the king Jaume II wanted the tower (1302) next to the oratory and the hospital (1279), dedicated to Sant Elm, saint of the navigators, to become a castle, with the attack against the chapel and tabernacle by the pirates.

The marine and underwater conditions for anchoring boats are not very safe, so that the navigator has to be very careful for the following reasons. If the strong wind blows from the west, it is very dangerous, and there are some rocks at half a hectometre from the coast and at a depth of two metres. This is why it is difficult to enter and disembark. At one hectometre from the coast there is a depth of six metres. The nearest port facilities are located at Port d‘Andratx, at 3,4 nautical miles.

The accessibility by car is easy following the signs. You can park your car for free in the surroundings of this beach, in the streets of Cala Conills. You can also reach this beach with the public transport. The nearest bus stop is located at half a kilometre. These characteristics explain that the beach is not very crowded by local visitors.

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.
