The beach

The beach of Cavallería, situated between la Punta des Vernís and la Punta de Ferragut, is actually formed by two beaches.

You access it on the way coming from the lighthouse.

Leave your car on the rocks in the scrubs.

Getting there

Go from Es Mercadal to Fornells.

At the roundabout with the two dancing figures turn left in the direction of Binimel-là and Cala Pregonda.

Walking to Cala Pregonda:

Duration: 3 hours for the round trip.
Distance: 5 kilometres.

Start at the car park at the Cavallería road. Then head north along the Camí de Cavalls to the beach (about half a kilometre).

Walk along the beach for some 300 metres until you reach a natural break behind the beach.

Leave the beach and head west up the hill following the Camí de Cavalls (always well-marked with wooden posts but they can be easy to miss nonetheless).
The trail stays close to the sea for most of its length.

You will pass a number of beaches on the 3 kilometres between the Cavallería beach and Binimel-là beach.

Follow the Binimel-là beach round and take the marked path to the west. You will first pass a rocky beach as you come over the hill and then bump into the first of Cala Pregonda's sandy beach.
The second beach is about 150 metres north up the hill.

From there, it's about 300 metres dropping down the beach.
