Cala des Camps
Ca los Camps, Ca los Cans, Calo's Cans, Caló des Cans
Artà
Type of beach gravel
Cala des Camps also known as Ca los Camps, Ca los Cans, Calo's Cans, Caló des Cans

Cala dels Camps Vells has got different names, Cala dels Camps, Ca los Camps, Ca los Cans or Caló's Cans. It is thought that the first name was Caló des Cans.

This beach is situated at 15 kilometres from Artà between Punta de Calo's Cans (excellent panoramic views over the bay of Alcúdia) and sa Cugassa, aswell as below the Ermita de Betlem (built at 300 metres above the sea level) and sa Coassa (321 metres high).

This coastal corner is the result of the mouth of the Torrent dels Cocons (which comes from the comellar with the same name) and the marine erosion which has formed a v-shaped sea inlet of fossil dune.

This beautiful virgin beach has a quite gentle slope, pebbles, a stony ground and the presence of tamarisks next to the coastline. There are also some escars (dry docks) and a defense place from machine-gunning during the Civil War. From this cove on, the coast has less vegetation and becomes steeper.

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).

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.
