Cala Varques is situated at 12 kilometres from Portocristo.
This virgin beach is the result of a rectangular sea inlet, with natural breakwaters of low height with pines and scrubland in the surroundings. The eastern coast is divided into two beautiful and quiet small sandy areas. They are divided by one and a half hectometres of steep rocks.
The western cove is smaller than the first one. The fine-grained white sand is surrounded by some rocks, as well as scrubland and the mouth of a torrent which is the origin of this place. At the rear of the eastern part there is a pine wood that reach the beautiful sandy area, and there is a natural arch and a huge cave in the surroundings.
The best option to reach this corner is on the sea way. The marine and underwater conditions are good for anchoring boats, the depth is more than six metres at 200 metres from the coast, on a sandy ground with crystal clear water. The nearest port facilities are located at Port de Portocristo, at 3,6 nautical miles.
The access on the land way is more difficult than the seaway and the last part has to be done on foot, with a 15 minutes walk on an uncomfortable trail between pines and next to the torrent which has formed this beach. These characteristics explain that the beach is not crowded at all and the visitors are normally residents. Nudism is not allowed, although it is done the same.
