Hidden away just a few kilometres from Majorca’s popular resort of Magaluf is Cala Falco (Falcon Cove).
This small cove hosts a sand beach surrounded by trees and steep cliffs on either side, which are great for jumping into the sea, but make sure you check the depth of the water first!
How to get there
To get to Cala Falco, follow the road Calle de el Greco towards Magaluf’s casino, when you get to the road junction for Calle de la Rosa, turn right.
A little way up the road you will see signs for Cala Falco on your left.
The approach to the beach is a downhill dirt track for approximately 800 meters where at the bottom you will find ample parking areas.
Arrive early in the day and you should be able to get a parking spot within a few meters of the beach, otherwise, you may have a 200 meter or more walk.
The area is great for snorkelling as there are lots of rock formations, plenty of marine life and a few sea caves in the area.
You can also walk around both sides of the beach along the cliffs, where you will find more secluded areas (sometimes home to nudists looking for a little privacy).
Cala Falco is great for all ages, as the sandy beach slopes gently into the Mediterranean for easy access.
The caves and cliffs will also provide exploring entertainment for the more adventurous holidaymakers among you.
Due to its remoteness, the beach at Cala Falco does not offer shower, toilet, food, drink or lifeguard facilities.
