Cala Major has a sandy beach. | D.B.

Cala Major is situated at four kilometres west from Palma, very near the regionalist-style palace of Marivent, summer residence of the Spanish Royal Family, which rises between the cliffs of Porto Pi and Cala Major.

The proximity to Palma explains that it is an urban beach with massive influx of local and tourist visitors. There is a pay-parking for private cars and the bus stop is at about hundred metres.

This sandy area is protected from the winds from east by the vertical cliff of the palace of Marivent, and from the air from west by the huge wall of hotels that reach the sand.

The characteristics of the marine ground of this beach, sand and a depth of five metres, allows anchoring boats. The proximity of the royal palace prohibits the anchoring of any type of boat for security reasons. The nearest port facilities are located at Escola Nacional de Vela de Calanova, at a half nautical mile.
