Cala Tirant or Arenal de Tirant is close to the urbanization Platges de Fornells (here there is a lookout point with fantastic panoramic views across to the capes of Fornells and Cavalleria), and is between the Llarga y Negra points which mark the borders of this bay. The beach is 6,5km from Fornells and 9,2 km from Mercadal.

It is a very large bay with fine golden sand and a dune system and marsh area at the back. There are low hills with bushes and tamarisk trees and some wildlife in evidence, and just a few apartments and houses over the beach. It is north-facing with light breezes and surf.

Cala Tirant can be very treacherous in bad weather, when the north wind is blowing hard. Some large ships have foundered and sunk on the rocks in storms. The depth is between 5 and 6 meters close to the shore with sunken and protruding rocks. Boaters are advised to come in and out of the bay on the west side and keep well away from the land.

This beach is very popular with both locals and tourists.

Please obey all safety instructions and keep an eye on the flags.

Enjoy, but it is important that you use your common sense at all times and do not take unnecessary risks.
