Cala d'Hort is a small, beloved beach with a fantastic view of the mysterious island of Es Vedra, which rises dramatically from the sea only several hundred metres from the shore. The beach itself is sandy to one side, pebbly to the other, and in summer is extremely popular. There are many who flock to the inspiring view and tranquil setting of Cala d'hort: old and young locals, visiting families and couples all included.

Backed by cliffs, it is situated at the end of a steep road. During busy times the road is reduced to single track due to the number of parked vehicles, so go early to avoid a long walk uphill back to your car after a hard day's sunbathing!

This is a lovely beach to body surf on breezy days when the waves get a little higher and bash the shore. There is also a small boutique open in high summer selling designer beachwear.

Tip: Visit this beach in summer to watch the sunset.

Beach bars and restaurants:

There are three excellent beach restaurants in the area, renowned for fresh fish dishes including the traditional seafood paella. El Carmen is a popular choice right on the beach whilst Es Boldado is situated high in the cliffs above the bay. It is accessed from the road to the beach from San José (signposted), or, if you're brave, you can scramble over the rocks and fishermen huts to the wooden staircase that takes you up to this very popular restaurant.

Closest resort: Cala Vadella, here you find the lovely El Puerto de Cala Vadella Apartments. Alternatively, Spotlight recommends Ses Marjades and Casa Alfredo as fantastic private villa options nearby.
