Cala Canutells

  • Public transport

Es Canutells or Cala Canutells is 10km from Mahón on the south-east coast, between Punta de na Picada and Cap Gros, closet o both the resort of the same name and the holiday complex Ses Tanques. The bay is narrow and winding and the sandy beach quite small. On one side the cliffs are high and filled with caves, and on the other houses have been built on various levels over the water. The south-east wind tends to be strong and the beach is generally not that busy. The coastline of 1,3 nautical miles which separate Cala Canutells from Calescoves has soaring rugged cliffs of up to 70m high covered in dense shrubbery. It is suitable for mooring boats but you need to be aware of the currents and the rocks on both sides of the entrance.

Access by road is easy and well marked. You go past the airport and turn left at The pleasant village of Sant Climent where many British residents live. There is free parking and access to the beach is down a stairway in the cliffside.
