Cala Llombards is a secluded beach only seven kilometres from Santanyi, surrounded by steep cliffs and rocky areas, bordered with pine trees and lush bushes. Small fishermen's houses along the cove add immensely to its charm.
Tucked away and rather small, this is a popular beach for locals as well as local holiday villa owners. The cala is actually the mouth of a wet-season stream – the Torrente de Son Amer - is just 55 metres long and 150 metres sand-to-sea, though the sand stretches way inland to where the pine trees create a natural border.
Es Pontàs #
Cala Llombards is not far from an impressive geological landmark: Es Pontàs, a rock which over millions of years was eroded by the sea to form a natural arc resembling bridge in the sea, hence the name which, in English, means the “big bridge”. Some consider it one of the most beautiful rock formations of its kind in the Mediterranean. Walk to the end of the promotory or head over to the “Mirador Es Pontàs” for a spectacular view!
For Boaties #
If there are southerly or south-easterly winds and you are looking for an alternative to Cala Santanyí, come here! You can anchor on a sandy ground, at depths between six metres in the entrance to three further in. The nearest port facilities are at Port de Cala Figuera in Santanyí which is 2,4 nautical miles away.
Getting There #
Cala Llombards can be easily reached by car. There is a large car park next to the beach and parking is free. For those who rely on public transport, there is no bus connection though.
Ideal for Families #
Calm waters make Cala Llombards ideal for swimming with children. Rent lounge chairs and umbrellas and enjoy the convenience of basic facilities like showers and toilets. A beach bar offers snacks and drinks, though choices are limited. We recommend to bring your own food and drinks along. No water activities for hire here. The crystal-clear, turquoise sea is ideal for snorkeling, though.
