CALA BLAVA, MALLORCA, SPAIN

Despite being within whistling distance of the beer gardens of the Platja de Palma, Cala Blava is altogether different: it’s residential rather than nakedly touristic, and offers a few quiet coves (several rocky; one sandy) to test the waters. It’s really absurdly close to the hubbub of S’Arenal – just a few kilometres south on the Ma6014, then a short side road to Cala Blava. Just beyond is Bella Vista: part of the coast here is protected, and off-limits, but you can still slip down to the Calò des Cap d’Alt for a swim in crystal-clear waters.
