Cala Blava Beaches
Locals, on the other hand, commonly refer to the beach as Cala Mosca or Cala Mosques, which is really the name for the entire bay, which includes several of the nearby coves.
Cala Blava is a lovely rocky bay with a sandy beach.
Cala Blava beach is covered in smooth, fine-grained sand toward the sea.
The sand grows coarser towards the back of the beach, with the occasional pebble tossed in for good measure.
On entering the sea, you’ll see that the fine sand extends out into the bay on a steady slope, allowing for easy access to the water.
Cala Blava is a nice beach for children because of the moderate drop into the typically calm sea.
Cala Blava beach lacks beach amenities such as loungers, bathrooms, and bars.
The surrounding neighbourhood is almost entirely residential, including a considerable number of vacation home rentals.
A moderate stroll down the cliffs is a necessity and will provide you with stunning views of the bay and Palma de Mallorca.
If the main beach becomes too crowded, Sa Pesquera Plana is a rocky outlet along the south coast that can be used for sunbathing.
If you continue down the same coastline, you’ll come upon the lovely tiny rocky bay of Calo de ses Lleonardes.
Mirador Son Veri Nou is located along the north shore of Cala Blava and offers amazing views of Palma de Mallorca’s harbour and the Mediterranean Sea.
