Pollença, a place with stories to tell  

Picture a place where verdant pine-clad mountains descend to meet an intensely turquoise sea. A town where stunning backdrops, a fascinating past and friendly locals are part of everything you do. 

Imagine for a moment the authentic character of a dynamic town, with lively and creative people making Pollença a place with a full of content.

The town, with its old quarter, is the hub of social activities. Outlying resorts round off the destination: the Port, with excellent accommodation and tourist amenities, and Cala Sant Vicenç, with some of the best hotels on the island.

And, of course, the Formentor peninsula. Its famous hotel, its viewing point or its lighthouse have been sources of inspiration for politicians, artists and thinkers alike. Now you can discover them too.

Cala Murta

This s-shaped spectacular sea inlet continues for about 180 metres toward the interior (the entrance is about 150 metres large) and it finishes on a semicircular beach similar to a bay, where a torrent flows into the sea.

Cala Murta is situated at 15 kilometres from Port de Pollença.

 The cliffs on the sides are populated by holm oaks on the right side and on the left side there is a possessió (rural finca) called Cala Murta and the Oratorio Mare de Déu de Formentor, surrounded by a pine wood. These areas belong to Fundació Rotger-Villalonga together with the bishopric of Majorca, they use this infrastructure as a colony house. The gravel and the sand build the substract of this nearly virgin beach.

The marine and underwater conditions are excellent for anchoring boats in this sea inlet because it is very sheltered from the wind from the north. The depth ranges from eight metres at two hectometres from the coast to four at one hectometre from the beach, and eleven in the entrance, on a rocky ground with seaweed. At 5,9 nautical miles there is Port de Pollença.

The accessibility by car is easy until the deviation of the possessió de Cala Murta. The last 1.700 metres have to be done on foot following a track because the access is restricted in this area.

These characteristics explain that the beach is not too crowded by local visitors and tourists, young people of the summer colonies.
