Beach is beautiful with a fantastic view from the top of the stairs. Looking at the stairs from the top seemed like it was going to take forever to get down there with 2 small children it was extremely difficult. Once your on the beach...More

If you're expecting a quiet secluded beach, this isn't it. The rough dirt/rock road down to the start of the trail doesn't allow parking, so you have to park on the main highway and walk. Took us 45 min (and we're both pretty active). There's...More

Cala Varques beach is accessed via a rough stone track, you can actually drive down part way but there are Tow Signs dotted all along it, I'm not sure if this is actually for parking down the track or if you block the track as...More

I was not impressed first when I saw the crowd, the beach and the unappealing water by the beach (possible due to the current which brought in a lot of dead leaves and seaweeds). As I explored the area, the water near the rocks were...More

So just got back after a few hours exploring and enjoying (at first) Cala Varques. It gets 5 star for being secluded and while the water (further out) was crystal clear, shore side it was full of seaweed grass plus stones. While it did not...More

Went with family two kids. Half an hour walk from the road to the beach and then back. Dirtiest sea I have seen in Majorca. Massive crowd for an unknown reason. Complete waste of time. Stay away.

We parked the car on the main road and walked for a very very long time along a pebbly small road to get to the beach. The beach was nice but maybe not worth the effort. Also lots of people there.

No. The place is too small and you can stay just beside someone who decide to go naked.
