Close to the resort of Es Caná you'll find the Cala Nova, a wide, long curve of sandy beach. It has blissfully shallow waters over clean, golden sand which extend quite a way into the sea - thus making it a very family friendly beach.
The surrounding scenery is wild and natural with a little pineclad hill to the left for energetic walks. It's beautiful even in bad weather, when the spectacular breakers make the undertow particularly dangerous - so be very careful and heed any warnings. Very popular with the few yet dedicated surfers on the island.
Tip: you can walk around the headland to the left to bring you to the small cove of Cala Leña, to the right takes you to Es Cana.
Facilities: A well established restaurant on the beach offers a lovely ambience, whilst its new trendier neighbour offers a wide terrace and modern dishes.
Getting there: Reached by foot or bicycle from Es Caná, a few hundred metres away, or by car following the road to San Carlos and then Cala Leña.
