What Is Cala Llombards Like?
Cala Llombards beach is part of a cone-shaped inlet surrounded by the rugged cliffs and natural beauty of southeast Mallorca. Mostly populated by guests renting private holiday homes in El Llombard, the beach is also visited by some tourists staying in the nearby Cala Santanyi who crave a quieter, more secluded beach to kick back and relax.
At Cala Llombards, you can rent lounge chairs and lay back with your favourite holiday read. Or stretch your legs and walk the short stretch of the sand, climbing on the rocky areas for a spectacular view of the ocean.
Cala Llombards beach is set in the bay area of Cala Llombards, 4.5km from the village of El Llombards in southeast Mallorca. It is 6.5km from the busier town of Cala Santanyi, where visitors will find an array of interesting shops and exotic restaurants.
No buses stop at Cala Llombards beach, so it is difficult to reach without a car. Public transport will take visitors to Santanyi, from which a rental car or taxi will get you to the beach in just 15 minutes along the Camí de Cala Llombards.
Restaurants, Bars & Facilities
A tropical-themed beach bar is an ideal place for some midday refreshment without having to wander far from your favourite sunbathing spot. This is only open during the summer months. The small village of El Lombards has some bars and restaurants, but during busier months, visitors can trek to the nearby resort town of Cala Santanyi for a little extra choice.
There are no official toilets on the beach, but during the busier months, temporary facilities are often set up. It is not advised that visitors expect this, however. It is more of a bonus.
There are lounge chairs available to rent, as well as showers for visitors to rinse the salt water off before heading out to get something to eat.
