Luckily, personal preferences vary widely when it comes to beaches. I was telling you about the beach of Cala S’Amarador some six weeks ago, on occasion of a widely publicized field trip that the Onbeach people had put on their website this summer.
Whilst I like Cala S’Amarador a lot, I was surprised about the number of good and special beaches in Mallorca that the Onbeach people do not seem to have visited at all. Let me tell you about a very special beach, shown above, that you should visit one day. You will find natural beauty there and unspoiled landscape, but you will have to do without noise, without chill-out music, without sangria and without sunbeds. September is a good time to go to the beach as the water is still pretty warm, and the sun is still out every day.
The treasure trove is called Cala En Tugores, and not many people know it. The beach is situated on private property, owned by the March family. But if you are a local resident, or go with someone living locally, you will be allowed to access the finca, and even to drive right near to the beach. People less privileged can still access the beach on foot and along the shoreline, either from Colònia de Sant Jordi or else, from the lighthouse of Ses Salines. I reckon that the walk would take you either 60 minutes from the former, or 45 minutes from the latter. You would have to carry your own refreshments, though, as there are no service facilities whatsoever once you get there. And of course, you could always access the beach by boat. Careful though, as there is very little depth in the sea near the shore line.
If you bring your own provisions, please make sure that you take any waste material back home with you, or else, this small paradise will cease to be just that, in no time at all.
