Santanyí
Type of beach sand
Caló de ses Egos also known as Caló de ses Egües

Caló de ses Egos o ses Egües is situated at two kilometres from Cala d'Or.

This very small sandy beach is surrounded by hotels that were built nearby, and this is why the access from the residential village of Calonge is quite difficult. You have to pass through the hotel to reach this sandy area.

About thousand guests stay at the hotels each summer and conquer the very small Caló de ses Egües (which is 20 metres long and 55 metres large). Due to the fact that it is so crowded, any corner of this narrow sea inlet, like medium-high cliffs, are used as solarium or diving platform. The residents have also made some stairs to reach the sea.

In the narrow entrance of this sea entrance (about 300 metres long) anchoring is possible on a sandy ground with seaweed and some rocks, with a depth that ranges between five and ten metres, although the navigator has to be careful with the wind blowing from the south or southeast. The nearest port facilities are located at Reial Club Nàutic Portopetro, at 1,1 nautical miles.

The accessibility by car is easy to Caló de ses Egos if you follow the large number of signs that indicate how to reach the free parking area next to this cove.
The described characteristics explain that this piece of the coastal area of Santanyí is 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.
