This beautiful beach is surrounded by a thick pine wood which goes from Cap de Cala Figuera to Refaubetx, and next to Illot del Toro and Illes es Malgrat they belong to Àrea Natural d'Especial Interès declared by the Parlament de les Illes Balears and the Àrea Natural de Especial Protección para las Aves by the European Union.
The marine and underwater conditions for anchoring boats are excellent, as well as for diving. This beach is open to the wind from the east and southeast and has a sandy ground with seaweed with a depth of five metres. Sa Caleta is near Club Nàutic Portals Vells.
The accessibility by car is easy following the signs until sa Platgeta des Portals Vells. You can park for free at the rear. From here you will reach sa Caleta after a two hectometres walk. Once you are there you should visit la Cova de la Mare de Déu, an old marès (sandstone) quarry, the blocks of which were used in the 14th and 15th century to build the cathedral of Palma and the church of Santa Eulàlia.
These characteristics explain that the beach is not too crowded by local visitors and tourists.
