Type of beach sand
Caló d'es Burgit

Caló des Burgit is situated at 4,5 kilometres from s'Alqueria Blanca, between Punta de sa Guàrdia (excellent views) and Caló des Macs.

This v-shaped sea inlet is a small cove with a thick pine wood that reaches the coastline, and the beach itself has a fine-grained golden sand, a virgin and wild aspect, there is only one traditional building on the left side, and it is surrounded by cliffs that are not very high. The beach is very quiet and quite isolated from the crowded touristy places of this area.
The marine and underwater conditions are very good for anchoring boats, if the wind is not blowing from the second and third quadrant. The navigator might anchor with good weather conditions on a sandy ground with some seaweed, at a depth that ranges between four and eight metres. You are only recommended to stay over night in Cala Mondragó if the weather conditions are good.

The accessibility by car is easy following the signs and deviations carefully. You will pass the beach Caló de sa Barca Trencada until you reach a sort of parking area, where you can leave your private car for free. The last three hectometres have to be done on foot on a trail between the pines.

The described characteristics explain that Caló d'es Burgit is not 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.
