Cala Toró
Cala Tonó
Artà
Type of beach sand
Cala Toró also known as Cala Tonó

Cala Tonó or Cala Toró is situated at 13 kilometres from Artà, between s'Embarcador (a small inlet) and na Destorba Jornals (a very narrow entrance), and next to the coastal village of s'Estanyol, with the same name as the torrent that flows in this area and finishes in a wetland. After s'Estanyol you will find the Àrea Natural d'Especial Interès sa Canova d'Artà (855 hectares) formed by the extensive sandy area of sa Canova and an enormous pine wood around the prehistoric village of sa Figuera Borda (still not excavated).

This beach is the result of a rectangular sea entrance which builds an area characterized by the presence of pebbles, as well as the clean and intense blue water. The rear of this cove is adjacent to the residential houses near s'Estanyol, and there is no vegetation in the surroundings. Nevertheless, nearby there are some agricultural lands which belong to the possessió Costa de sa Devesa. Torrent de Can Castellet flows through this rural finca and flows into the sea forming the nearby Caleta d'en Castellet.

The piece of coast between Punta de s'Esquerda and sa Barraca (this names comes from the rests of a hut near the beach, next to other prehistoric constructions which are not preserved) has a rocky and steep aspect, as you can see in ses Penyes Altes, Punta Llarga de s'Estanyol, Cala de sa Porcella, sa Pedra que Sona, sa Pedra Girada and es Codol.

Municipality information Artà

The municipality of Artà is situated at the north-eastern end of Majorca and it has one of the minor densities of population (43 inhabitants per square kilometre).

The name might be given by the Arab word Yartan, which was the name of this area during the Islamic period. The Christian king Jaume I who conquered Majorca (1229) called it Almudaina d'Artano, and it was named town in 1230 with the arrival of the premonstratense monks.

The landscape is formed by a wide central valley, surrounded by the mountains and a coastal area with system of dunes and some rocky areas. It has the highest hills of Serres de Llevant (sa Talaia Freda, 562 metres, and Puig d'en Ferrutx, 519 metres) and the Torrent de na Borges, in the mouth of which you can find Estany del Bisbe, which is two kilometres long.

There are endemic plants in danger of extinction of the Balearic archipelago, like holm oaks, bushes, pine woods and scrubland in this municipality. And some protected species like the black vulture, the fishing eagle or the kite fly over this place.

The tourism and the construction replaced the agricultural activity and the industry in the seventies of the 20th century. This municipality has the Teatre d'Artà (with a capacity for 460 people) since 2001, one of the best infrastructures of Majorca.

Its cultural variety includes Talaiot de ses Païses, Monestir de Bellpuig, Església de Sant Salvador, Església parroquial, Ermita de Betlem, edificio señorial de na Batlessa, where the painter Miquel Barceló has his graphic works.
The municipality has 14 beaches.
