Caló des Homos Morts
Type of beach sand
Caló des Homos Morts

Caló des Homos Morts is situated at five kilometres from Cala d'Or. This small beach is located next to the touristy resort and crowded by the guests of the Club Mediterranee (a holiday resort built in 1961). Once you are on this sandy area, which is not very easy to reach, because you have to walk from the nearby Caló de sa Torre and cross part of this holiday village, you will be welcome by a huge pine tree, situated next to the sea.
Both the sand and the water belong to the facilities of the activities organized by Club Mediterranee and other touristy services. At about 200 metres from the coast, some buoys avoid the entrance of boats, and on the left there is a jetty for the passenger launches that come from Portopetro.

Nevertheless the sandy ground with some seaweed and a depth of five metres does allow anchoring of boats, but if the wind blows from the east, you are not recommended to anchor here. The nearest port facilities are located at Reial Club Nàutic Portopetro, at 0,6 nautical miles.

The accessibility by car is easy following the signs until the nearby Caló de sa Torre. You can park your car between the residential houses and continue on foot, along the coast, toward Caló des Homos Morts. The presence of the Club MED explains that the beach is 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.
