Palma Nova Beach

Cala Mesquida Beach has over 300 metres of gorgeous shoreline with wonderfully clear shallow waters, perfect for families wanting to paddle.
If you’re after a beach that’s less of a tourist attractor Cala Figuera could be just the place. There is a bit of walk ( about 15 minutes ) from the car park to the beach and it’s quite steep so may not be suitable for small children, but the clear turquoise waters and brilliant snorkelling conditions make it well worth the effort!
The beach here is rocky and there’s no equipment to rent so you’ll need to be organised! The fishing town of Cala Figuera is close by if you want to make a day of it!
