Caló des Pou
Caleta des Pou
Santanyí
Type of beach sand
Caló des Pou also known as Caleta des Pou

Caló or Caleta des Pou is situated at two kilometres from Cala d'Or.

This beach is very quiet, it has excellent facilities for the visitors, it is quite unspoilt and the sand is white and fine-grained. The visitor may remain in the shade of the palm tree at the rear of this cove.

The ground is sandy with some seaweed, at a depth of five metres, and allows anchoring boats, and the location in the interior of Cala Llonga makes this place quite protected. The nearest port facilities are located at Port Esportiu Marina Cala d’Or, at 0,1 nautical miles.
The houses of the residential area around this beach are next to es Fortí. This military fortress was built in 1730. It used to have four guns and the walls toward the sea, in order to prevent an artillery attack. Later on, the fortress became a sort of museum which can be visited. In the interior there is a special place for the commemorative plaque to Pep Costa Ferrer, named as sentry of es Fortí, and admired for the good design and the building of the village of Cala d'Or.

The accessibility by car is easy until Caló des Pou, following the signs that indicate how to reach the free parking area next to the beach. The beautiful and quiet landscape explains that the beach is not too crowded by local visitors and tourists.

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.
