Cala en Turqueta is 10 km from Ciutadella, between the des Tambors and na Foradada points, and under the tower Talaia d’Artrutx. It is named after Turkish pirates. This beautiful and remote beach has huge cliffs on each side covered with pine-trees and is part of the Natural Area of Special Interest of the southern coast of Ciutadella.
The fine sandy beach is divided by a rocky spit which gradually sinks into the sea. The water is crystal-clear with a gentle drop, and the prevailing wind is south-east/south-west. Boats of less than 12m and 2m draft are fine to moor here. The best area is on the west and is marked with buoys.
Access by road is easy and well marked. There is free parking for 120 cars at 15 minutes walk from the beach, and pay-parking close to it. It is very popular with both locals and tourists.
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.
