Cala Rotja (Canyamel)

Autumn is here. The heat has subsided. There was some heavy rain a few days ago with temperatures dropping considerably, and before you know it, one has to start thinking about getting another few outings in to the beach before it is too late to swim. How about going somewhere you haven’t been to, for a change?

When we went for a drink in Canyamel before going to a concert given by Maria del Mar Bonet a few weeks ago, we spotted a beach, Cala Rotja, that I had not been to before. The tiny beach is surrounded by rocks. The waters are clear and clean. The best access would be from the Torre de Canyamel, where the concert took place, to the Costa de Canyamel. You’ll come to a roundabout with access to the hotel Can Simoneta. There you turn right and follow the road. Park the car near the only seafront restaurant there. To the left of the bar you’ll find a lane going straight down to the sea. I did not do any snorkeling when we went, but, I am told that this Cala is very suitable for some underwater activity, either snorkeling, diving or even speleodiving (cave diving). There is a submarine cave a few metres deep and there is the near-by Cova del Congre cave at a depth of 20 metres. It might be fun to discover somewhere new, above or below the water. If diving is not for you, you could just go for a drink and the stunningly beautiful view.

The photo was taken near Canyamel, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: August 27th, 2011. The time was 18:26:26.
