There is a paid car park directly behind the beach. If you are coming from Cala Molí, there is plenty of free parking available in the designated car parks on your left as you descend to the cove, although it means quite a walk down to the resort in the heat of high summer.

As you descend into the picturesque bay of Cala Vadella, you will take in breathtaking views of the sea and the pretty beach; it is surrounded by pine-clad hills that are also perfect for long walks.

The bay is home to the small resort of Cala Vadella, which is popular with families and couples who enjoy the peaceful ambience. The beach is ideal if you want to enjoy a quiet day without music spilling out of beach clubs but still have all the conveniences of a resort nearby.

The big, wide beach of fine white sand slopes gently into shallow waters close to the shore, making it great for fun and games with the children. Even at the height of summer, there's always a spot to be found on this large beach.

The crystal clear water is perfect for swimming and snorkelling. Since the bay, protected by high cliffs, stretches far inland, the sea is usually pleasantly calmThe sheltered bay is also a popular anchoring spot for private yachts and motor boats, which often moor up to watch the sunset.

Tip: Combine a day in Cala Vadella with a visit to the charming white village of San José. In summer, there is an ecological food and craft market each Saturday.

There is a good selection of cafés and restaurants, most of them located directly on the beachfront, with lovely views of the colourful beach life and further out to the beautiful bay.
