Cala Molins

Cala Molins is situated at seven kilometres from Pollença, and is separated from Cala Clara by Punta de la Torre where there was a military fortress, and it belongs to the four beaches known as Cala Sant Vicenç.

The residential houses and the touristic buildings that reach the coastline between the cliffs surround this beach, and its stony coast suffers the force of the cold wind blowing from the north, which makes the transparent water foaming and turbulent. The presence of the touristic and residential village explains the massive influx of local visitors and tourists.
The marine and underwater conditions are not very good for anchoring boats and this manoeuvre can only be done with good weather.

This beach is open to north-northeast, the sea comes in from the northwest, it has a gentle slope and the depth is three metres at three hectometres from the coast, on a sandy ground with seaweed and this is why you should anchor far away from this coastal stretch. The nearest port facilities are located at Port de Pollença, at 16,4 nautical miles.

The accessibility by car is easy following the signs until Cala Molins. The private car can be left on a free parking area at the rear. If it was full, you can also park in the streets of the nearby village. You can also reach this beach with the public transport. The nearest bus stop is located in the surroundings of this beach.

Municipality information Pollença

The municipality of Pollença is situated in the north of Majorca. The origin of the name is supposed to come from Pol.lentia (Roman city) –the Latin word polent, “powerful”-, founded by Quinto Cecilio Metelo in 123 BC after conquering Majorca.

Its landscape is characterized by high mountains, flat valleys, irrigated by torrents, the last linear 26 kilometres of the Serra de Tramuntana (Puig de Ca de Miner, 887 metres high, with a lot of underground cavities), the flat area (Albufereta, important wetland) and an enormous coastal area (it is the majorcan municipality with the most extensive coast; spectacular cliffs, headlands, small islands, the closed bay of Pollença and white sandy beaches).

In 1550 it suffered the violent attack of the pirate Dragut and 1500 Saracene pirates. The local milicy lead by the resident Joan Mas, rejected him, because the captain escaped. This fact is commemorated every year on the 2nd of August in a Moor-Christian mock battle. Between the end of the 19th century and the middle of the 20th century Pollença suffered a migration toward South America, whereas in the seventies it was inverted because of the touristic boom and the construction, replacing the traditional mountain economy.

The cultural variety includes Coves de Sant Vicenç, Roman bridge, Església de Nostra Senyora dels Àngels, Oratori de Roser Vell, Convent de Sant Domingo, Escalonada del Calvari, Puig de Santa Maria (Bien de Interés Cultural and Àrea Natural d'Especial Interès –ANEI), Castell del Rei, possessions (rural fincas) of Son Marc, Formentor and Ternelles (ANEI and Zona de Especial Protección para las Aves), Talaia d'Albercuix.
The municipality has 17 beaches.
