Incredible landscapes in every imaginable shade of white and blue
These impressive sandy landscapes are dominated by the large dune known as Munt Gros in Cala Mesquida, with a growth of mastic and pine trees. The area is home to one of the largest colonies of seagulls and cormorants in the Balearic Islands.
These regions have been officially declared Natural Areas of Special Interest (in Spanish, ANEI), Sites of Community Importance (SCI) and Marine Reserve. The dunes of Cala Agulla provide an interesting contrast of colours with the white sand, clear turquoise water and the dark green of the lofty pines surrounding them.
At Cala Mesquida the dunes take shape behind the first strip of sandy beach by the sea. They are so extensive that when you enter this special landscape it gives you the feeling that you are in a desert, surrounded by sand on all sides…
The two beaches are connected by a delightful track that weaves its way among the pine trees and it takes about half an hour to walk from one beach to the other.
