Cala Deià is situated at 10 kilometres from Sóller, between Punta de Son Beltran and sa Pedrissa, where a defence tower against the pirate attacks is located. The impressive mountains of es Teix (1064 metres high) and el Caragolí are also situated next to Deià.
This beautiful sea inlet, surrounded by medium-high cliffs, with scrubland and pine wood, finishes on a semicircular beach where a torrent flows into the sea and there are some fantastic terraces.
The beach has coarse-grained sand and gravel and a quite steep slope. On the sides there are a small jetty, escars and some restaurants, very well known for their rice and fish-based dishes. In the summer it is normal to see internationally famous people.
The marine and underwater conditions are not safe for anchoring boats because of the strong wind that blows from the northwest-north-northeast it is a dangerous area. next to the beach there is a rock under the water at a depth of three metres and the sandy and rocky ground is insecure. If you want to anchor you are recommended to do it by daylight and in front of the jetty, on a ground of sand and gravel, with a depth of four metres. At 3,7 nautical miles there is Port de Sóller.
The accessibility by car is easy following the signs. In the surroundings there is a parking area which is always crowded. You are recommended to walk down the last kilometre on the road or on the stony tracks dels Ribassos and de sa Vinyeta.
These characteristics explain that the beach is very crowded by local visitors and tourists.
