Cala Blava Beaches
The literal translation of Cala Blava is Blue Bay.
However, the locals usually refer to the beach by the names of Cala Mosca or Cala Mosques which is actually the name for the whole bay encompassing many of the local coves.
Cala Blava is a beautiful small rocky bay with a sandy beach.
Towards the sea, Cala Blava beach is covered with soft, fine-grained sand.
To the rear of the beach, the sand becomes a little more coarse, with the odd boulder thrown in for good measure.
On entering the sea, you’ll find that the fine sand continues out into the bay with a gradual decline making for easy access to the sea.
The gentle decline into the usually calm water & makes Cala Blava a great beach for children to enjoy.
Cala Blava beach has no beach facilities such as sunbeds, toilets, bars, etc.
The surrounding area is nearly exclusively residential in nature with a large number of holiday home rentals in the area.
A gentle stroll along the cliffs is a must & will give you wonderful views across the bay & towards Palma de Mallorca.
Sa Pesquera Plana is a rocky outlet along the south coast that can be used for sunbathing if the main beach gets too busy.
If you venture a little further along the same coastline you’ll come across the beautiful small rocky bay of Calo de ses Lleonardes.
Along the North coast from Cala Blava, you’ll find Mirador Son Veri Nou which provides some spectacular views across the bay of Palma de Mallorca & out across the Mediterranean sea.
