Caló des Moro
Santanyí
Type of beach sand
Caló des Moro

Caló des Moro is situated at six kilometres from Santanyí and it is the most crowded beach of this area. It is also called by the incorrect name s'Almunia like the beach nearby.

This virgin beach, located between cliffs populated by pines, bushes and lentisc, is sandy, with some big rocks in between. This aspect may change depending on the force of the tempests, due to the fact that the sea currents sweep the slime under the water, eliminating the solarium area. The beach is not very big, but it is very crowded, so that it finding a place for the towel might be a problem.

The water is crystal clear, open to the wind from east-southeast, with a sandy ground, which is excellent for diving and for anchoring small boats, with a depth that ranges from three to four metres next to the coast. The nearest port facilities are located at Port Cala Figuera de Santanyí, at two nautical miles.

The access to the beautiful Caló des Moro on foot begins leaving the car for free next to the houses of sa Comuna (at 1,1 kilometres from the beginning of the road that leads to s'Almunia, and at half a kilometre from the sea). Then you have to follow on foot walking for 400 metres on a small and steep trail that begins before the road finishes and that takes us to this rocky and sandy area along the cliffs.

This problematic accessibility explains that the influx of local visitors and tourists is not too high.

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.
