Caleta d’en Gorries or sa Caleta is 2km from Ciutadella, between the watchtower Torre des Castellar from the XVIII century (and from where there are wonderful panoramic views), and Cala Santandria. This bay is to the right of the entrance into Cala Santandria (north/north-west), and the name caleta is a diminutive of the larger ‘cala’, or bay. There are houses on the rocks over the bay, The beach is small and sandy with low-lying rock and vegetation and faces south-west/west. With water that is calm and clear with a gentle incline, this is very popular with locals and tourists. It is ideal for mooring small boats only. Larger craft should head for the neighbouring Cala Santandria (2 hectometers wide and 7 long and 3,5 nautical miles from Cap d’Artrutx, where it is very sheltered although there are currents from the west.
Access by road is easy and well marked. There is free parking and a bus service from Ciutadella.
