Cala d'en Marçal also known as Caló d'en Marçal

Cala o Caló d'en Marçal is situated at one kilometre from Portocolom, next to the entrance to the port with the same name. This beautiful sea inlet becomes wider toward the coast and is quite sheltered from the swell.

This large sandy area is surrounded by low cliffs and it continues for a hundred metres on the dry torrent. At the rear of the cove, there are some tall pine trees that give their shade to be protected from the sun and there is also some scrubland.

This beach is the widest and easiest to reach of Felanitx. Cala d'en Marçal is an other example of mass tourism on a coastal area. In this place the visitors are normally guests of the hotels nearby.

The marine and underwater conditions are good for anchoring boats on a sandy ground in the central part of this beach and rocky with seaweed on the sides. The depth is four metres at two hectometres from the coast. The nearest port facilities are located at Port de Portocolom, at 1,3 nautical miles.

The accessibility by car is easy from Portocolom or from s'Horta following the signs. The private car can be left on a free parking area at a few metres from this sandy area. These characteristics explain that the beach is very crowded by tourists.

Municipality information Felanitx

The municipality of Felanitx is situated in the southeast of Majorca, and it is the fourth and seventh most important municipality in area and population, respectively. The origin of the name is unknown (it might come from the Latin word fenum, “hay”). It was named town by king Jaume II in 1300.

The landscape goes from the sea to the interior: Serres de Llevant (southern region with some medium-high mountains: Puig de Sant Salvador, 494 metres high), Pla (western interior flat area between the mountains) and Marina (oriental area toward the interior, irrigated by torrents, cliffs of 30 metres and a 15 kilometres long coast).

In the seventies of the 20th century, the mass tourism began to lead the economy, with an increase of the service sector (business and restaurants) and the transforming industry (wood, metal and the production of construction materials).
