Type of beach sand
Na Clara

Na Clara is situated at six kilometres from Colònia de Sant Pere. The name –which means clear in English- describes the transparency of the water, hidden under the thickness of the pine trees and the cliffs that reach s'Atalaia Freda at 562 metres, the highest of Serres de Llevant, with a breathtaking panoramic view over Majorca.

This beach has stones, pebbles and enormous boulders with fine-grained brilliant sand on a steep coast. This piece of coastline can be defined as virgin paradise, you may swim in crystal clear water and touch a sandy ground that continues for hundreds of metres toward the sea.

The marine and underwater conditions are good for anchoring boats, although you will have to keep a reasonable distance from the coast if the wind blows from the west, northwest, north, northeast and east. The depth ranges from three metres at 150 metres from the coast to 1,5 metres at half a hectometre. The nearest port facilities are located at Club Nàutic Colònia de Sant Pere, at 1,5 nautical miles.

The accessibility by car is easy following the signs until es Caló, where the quality of the road is not so good. You can park your private car for free in the surroundings. The last 200 metres to this natural environment have to be done on foot on a trail toward left which descends and takes you to na Clara, but the access for disabled is impossible.

These characteristics explain that the beach is not crowded at all by local visitors.

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.
