Cala Esmeralda
Caló des Corrals
Santanyí
Type of beach sand
Cala Esmeralda also known as Caló des Corrals

Cala Esmeralda or Caló des Corrals is situated at 14 kilometres Portocolom. The name comes from the greenish-bluish colour of the water with the rays of sunlight.

This small sandy area which is surrounded by some rocks of low height, is one of the beaches that belong to Cala d'Or, and which are quite unspoilt. The hotels and apartments, as well as the residential houses are at a certain distance from the beginning of the beach. There is still a part of the high pine trees and the visitor has more space. This is why we don't see the impact of a very developed coastline.

The marine and underwater conditions of Cala Esmeralda are good for anchoring boats. The ground is located at about four to five metres of depth and is sandy with some seaweed. The nearest port facilities are located at Port Esportiu Marina Cala d'Or, at one nautical mile.

The accessibility by car is easy. If you want to reach this place by private car, you only have to follow the signs that indicate how to reach the free parking area next to the beach. If you chose the public transport, the nearest bus stop is located at about 300 metres from this sandy area.

These characteristics explain that Cala Esmeralda is very crowded.

Municipality information Santanyí

The municipality of Santanyí is situated in the southeast of Majorca, Cap de ses Salines is the most southern territory of the island which is at 150 kilometres from Africa (it suffered the north African pirate attacks between the 14th and 17th centuries). The origin of the name is uncertain (three options, Latin, Arab or Mozarab). King Jaume II named it town in 1300.
The landscape goes from the interior to the sea, between unirrigated agricultural land and natural vegetation. This ecological and ethnographic richness explains that in 1992 Mondragó (782 hectares) was declared natural reserve by the Govern de les Illes Balears. The northern area includes the last part of Serres de Llevant (Penya Bosca, 280 metres high) and the southern includes a marina (3,5 kilometres toward the interior) and a coastline which is 35 kilometres long and where torrents flow into the sea, like s'Estany de ses Gambes (a water storage of 41 hectares) and es Pontàs (arch-shaped emerging rock).
Since the fifties of the 20th century the tourism began in this municipality, increasing commerce, construction, marès, gravel and pedra de Santanyí quarries (used since the Islamic period and in the most important historical buildings of Majorca, Almudaina, Castell de Bellver, Llotja or la Seu, and exported to Catalonia, France and Italy).
The municipality has 19 beaches.
