What is Cala Tuent Like?

Cala Tuent is typically quiet and lacks facilities, but it is still popular among those looking for a quiet location.

The stunning beach, surrounded by pine forests, is a pebble beach. This and the difficult drive to get there can put many visitors off.

Accessibility is not great, and it does not offer a paved walkway. This makes disabled access more challenging.

Those who do make the effort to visit Cala Tuent will be rewarded with a clear sea that is great for swimming and snorkelling.

Bathing shoes can be a good idea when visiting Cala Tuent because some of the stones on the beach can be sore to walk over. This can be especially dangerous when entering or exiting the water, so visitors should take care.

Location

The backdrop to this great, secluded beach is Mallorca’s highest Mountain, Puig Major. The dramatic scenery of the Sierra de Tramuntana mountain range adds to this natural, unspoilt option.

The rugged northwest coast of Mallorca offers the island’s least populated area of beaches. However, anyone on the lookout for a beautiful, quiet beach will love Cala Tuent.

When you visit the beach, you will realise this is a worthy sacrifice to protect the area’s natural beauty.
