Type of beach sand
Es Caló de Ses Llises

Es Caló de ses Llises is situated at 5,5 kilometres from Andratx, between Cala Fornells and Peguera Palmira.

This narrow sea inlet finishes on a beautiful quiet cove. The thick pine trees and the scrubland nearly touch the crystal clear water, as well as the rocks which are characteristic for Caló de ses Llises. There is gravel with pebbles and the beach is surrounded by cliffs which are about 10 metres high. On the top you can see some residential houses.

This beach is open to the winds from the east-southeast. The marine and underwater conditions for anchoring boats are good if the boats have a maximum length of five metres, because of the lack of place and depth. In the middle of this small inlet there is a rock which is used as a platform by the swimmers. The bigger boats will have to anchor at three hectometres from the coast, where there is a depth that ranges from three to four metres on a sandy and rocky ground. At 2,5 nautical miles there is Club Nàutic Santa Ponça.

The accessibility by car is easy following the signs. You can park your private car for free under some pine trees next to an apartment block. You can also reach this beach with the public transport. The nearest bus stop is located at Cala Fornells and from here you can walk to reach Caló de ses Llises.

These characteristics explain that the beach is not too crowded by local visitors and tourists.

Municipality information Calvià

The municipality of Calvià is situated at in the southwest of Majorca, and it is the second most important municipality by population. The origin of its name is uncertain (it might come from the Latin patronymic calvianum).

The landscape goes from Marina del Cap de Cala Figuera (an extensive flat and dry area), a central part (area of hills and more or less open hills), a northern sector with mountains (Serra de Tramuntana, Puig de Galatzó, 1027 metres high; holm oaks preserved) to a coast of 54 kilometres with cliffs, small islands, coves and sandy areas. This coastal diversity explains that this area has been declared Zona de Especial Protección para la Avifauna, as well as one of the most important European regions for mass tourism.

The conquest of the Islamic Majorca began on the 10th of September 1229 in Santa Ponça with the disembarkation of the Christian king Jaume I d'Aragó and his troops. In the 16th and 17th centuries it suffered Saracene attacks, and a defence system of towers was built, and there has also been banditry. Between 1860 and 1950 there has been an enormous emigration toward Palma, Cuba, Argentina, Uruguay, Venezuela and Algeria.

In the sixties the touristic boom began, with the most important demographic, economic and social transformation of Majorca during the second half of the 20th century.

The cultural variety includes Talaiot de Son Miralles, Roman village sa Mesquida, Capella de la Pedra Sagrada, Torre des Moro, Oratori de Portals Nous, Castell de Bendinat, Església parroquial de Sant Joan Baptista, Molí des Castellet.
