Cala Pilar

Cala el Pilar is 23km from Ciutadella, between the Alocs and des Carregador points, and facing the Esculls del Barco, Illa des Pinar and Esculls de sa Teula reefs. This is a remote and unspoiled beach of sand and gravel and sparse vegetation. It faces north and is surrounded by the high rugged cliffs of the Marina de Santa Elisabet hills. At the back of the beach there is a natural spring and many visitors enjoy this and the lovely scenery. The Son Felip wood is about half an hour’s walk away. It is not advisable to moor boats here as it is exposed and has many dangerous reefs. Access from the west is recommended.

Access by road takes you to the Sant Bernat, Al Putzer, Bini Canó, Sant Felip and Alfurí farms. Here you can park at no cost and walk for 1,8 km (one hour) until you reach Cala el Pilar. Wear the sensible shoes and take water and sun-cream. Please obey all safety instructions and keep an eye on the flags. Red means danger and no entering the water. Yellow means that you can swim but with caution. Green means that it is safe to swim. Orange means that there is normally a lifeguard but that he is not present. Enjoy, but it is important that you use your common sense at all times and do not take unnecessary risks. Domestic pets and animals are not allowed on the beach.
