Approaching Cala Vadella is an absolutely spectacular sight – as you snake around the winding road, the first glimpse of the deep blue bay dotted with glam white yachts is amazing. As you wind your way down the hill into the quaint resort town, you’ll see the beach emerge with pretty turquoise green waters at the shallow, calm end. A small yet wide arc of sand is dotted with beach towels and sunbeds in the summer, however in the pre-season, don’t be surprised if you see the occasional horse rider galloping along the beach. Popular with families, there are plenty of water sports available and an array restaurants perched right on the sand to choose from.
Who goes there?
