Caleta dels Ermitans, Caló dels Ermitans, s'Arenalet de Son Colom or dels Ermitans is situated at 14 kilometres from Artà, between Caló des Corb Marí and Punta de Cas Taverner, as well as below the Ermita de Betlem (located at 300 metres above the sea level), sa Coassa (321 metres high) and Puig de sa Murta (214 metres high). All this belongs to the Àrea Natural d'Especial Interès Muntanyes d'Artà.
The piece of coast between sa Cugassa and sa Macada de sa Torre (Caló des Corb Marí, Caleta dels Ermitans, Punta de Taverner, n'Olivarda, Cala s'Estret and Punta de sa Torre or de s’Eriçó) is characterized by the particular shape and the absence of vegetation (only rock). These flat areas along the coastline were once covered by vineyards not so long ago.
A round headland, the result of the erosion of wind and sea forms the very small Caleta dels Ermitans, used by the hermits of Betlem, next to a holiday resort.
This beach is located between the village of Betlem and Colònia de Sant Pere. In a forest nearby, which you can reach walking on the trail which is parallel to the coast and passing the possessió (rural finca) Son Mascaró toward west, you will find the prehistoric Talaiots de Can Pa amb Oli (“bread with oil” is a typical majorcan dish made of a piece of bread with tomato on in and a bit of olive oil).
