Cala Varques-90 meters of chilled-out

Cala Varques – Balearic islands

Cala Varques Beach in Eastern Mallorca To enjoy this beach you will need to walk 15 minutes from the parking. This is not a typical sandy beach since it less than 100 meters long and part of it is covered with stones, but waters are simply amazing and since there are no services it is a less frequented beach (though its popularity has increased). There are no water sports nor bars or restaurants. This beach is fantastic if you enjoy snorkling since there are many caves that serve as home to fish. This beach is frequented by people selling jewellery and drinks and you can also expect to find naturists.
