Estellencs
Type of beach gravel
Cala Can Pruaga also known as Cala Son Pruaga, Platja de Can Pruaga

Cala Can Pruaga, Cala Son Pruaga or Platja de Can Pruaga is situated at four kilometres from Estellencs, between s’Illot and Punta de s’Encletxa, as well as under the Mirador d’en Ricard Roca and des Grau, next to pico es Morro (632 metres high) and Puig de s’Esclop (928 metres high). This place belongs to the Àrea Natural d'Especial Interès Serra de Tramuntana.

This beach is located in a very open sea inlet, which is not sheltered at all from the swell. This coastline has pebbles and is quite small, with a wonderful water. These elements make this beach quite popular amongst the residents of Estellencs, although it is not very comfortable for bathing because of the steep cliffs.

This part of the western coastline of Majorca is very high and steep, there are vertical cliffs and lots of torrents flowing into the sea. In the surroundings of Cala Can Pruaga there are four torrents, Torrent d’en Balaguer, o de Cas Xeremier, de Cas Xocolater, de sa Figuera and des Quer.

The marine and underwater conditions for anchoring boats are not very good. Only for small boats with small draught, during the day and with good weather. The navigator will have to be very careful, because there are lots of rocks emerging along the coastline. The nearest port facilities are located at Port d’Andratx.

Municipality information Estellencs

The municipality of Estellencs is situated in the west of Majorca and it is one of the four smallest municipalities of Majorca. The origin of its name is unknown (it might come from the mozarab word stilia, which is the origin of many Germanic names).

It is an extensive valley which is irrigated by some sources (s'Ull de s'Aigua, for instance) and torrents (the most important is Torrent Major) which flow into the sea in the port; the last area of Serra de Tramuntana (Puig de Galatzó, 1.027 metres high; holm oaks); a steep coast with regular profile and which is six kilometres long (pine wood) and with protected areas of terraces –marjades- with olive trees which are situated between the sea and a height of 600 metres, which occupy 40 percent of this municipality, are typical for the landscape of Estellencs.

This singular ecosystem has been declared in 1972 Bien de Interés Cultural, as well as 1.164 hectares Àrea Natural d'Especial Interès and 202 hectares more Àrea Rural de Interés Paisajístico in 1991. Font de Can Rava is one of the Puntos de Interés Científico de Illes Balears because of the zoological richness.

Between the 14th and 17th centuries it suffered lots of pirate attacks.
