Cala mesquida beach. Cala Mesquida beach is for us one of the most beautiful beaches and coves of Cala Ratjada and Mallorca.
In this cove we will enjoy a pure nature practically away from tourism. The beach is surrounded by vegetation and large rocks that make it one of the most paradisiacal beaches on the island. On the beach we will find a small beach bar where we can cool off. Part of Mesquida Bay is a nature reserve where there is a large colony of cormorants and seagulls.
To get to Cala de Mesquida cove, you must take the Arta-Capdepera road and follow the signs that indicate the location of Cala Mesquida. You can leave the car at the entrance of the cove or in the urbanization that is very close to the cove. Then you should walk only 100 meters to the beach.

We recommend visiting the lighthouse during sunset.
