Best beaches in Majorca Coll Baix

In the Alcudia Municipality and close to our Majorca hotel, the JS Sol de Alcudia, you will find the “Es Coll Baix” beach, the only virgin and public municipal beach.

This lead-colour gravel and coarse sand beach is a broad and straight inlet from the sea that ends in a spectacular beach, flanked by sloping rocky cliffs and closed by an embankment of considerable height, whose collapse originated the beach.  The water is pristine, usually with a moderate swell and a pleasant NW, N or NE breeze.

The area is guarded at 445 metres high by defence Tower from the 16th century, the sa Talaia d’Alcúdia or Victòria Tower, which overlooks the bays of Alcúdia and Pollença.

The beach is distanced from urban areas and is quite remote, although it still has a municipal lifeguard and rescue service.

To reach this dream beach in Majorca, be prepared to make an excursion off the beaten track, including along the foot of a cliff. As it is difficult to access on foot, only a few people go there and its 50 m wide by 220 m long beach can be enjoyed by only those who have decided to make this pleasant excursion (around 8.5 km from Alcudia) on trails and unpaved roads. The walk to the beach takes about 45 min and the last 5 km are on dusty tracks along the base of the cliff.

This beach is a must-see for all nature and beach lovers, it is a real treasure in a protected space.

The geographical coordinates are as follows: 39º 51’45”N – 3º 11’30”E
