Cala Castell is situated at 12,8 kilometres from Pollença between the steep and abrupt cliffs of Punta Galera and the flat rocky areas of Punta Topina.
The name is given by Castell del Rei, a rocky castle of Saracene origin (13th century), which used to defend the coastal area from the higher part of Serra de Ternelles (476 metres), from where there are some breathtaking panoramic views over the north of Majorca and even the island of Minorca.
This wild beautiful beach is located at the end of a cliff and is divided into two coves, formed by pebbles, gravel, sand and some rests of posidonia.
The marine and underwater conditions are good for anchoring boats but it can be insecure when the wind blows from the north. The depth ranges from six metres at 200 metres from the coast to three metres at a hectometres from the beach, on a rocky ground with seaweed.
The accessibility by car is easy until Cala Barques. From here you will start a walk along the sea, crossing Pas des Pescadors, which leads to this privileged natural environment. Another possibility is reaching the possessió (rural finca) of Ternelles by car to take the well preserved track that leads to Cala Castell after a 10 kilometres walk. You can reach the beach by car if you get the authorization because of the restricted access to this finca. These characteristics explain that the beach is not crowded at all.
