Cala Mesquida

Quiet resort on a scenic bay

The sea is a gorgeous turquoise, calm and clear for much of the summer.

Prone to waves on windier days, Cala Mesquida is a popular surfing destination, too. Bordering one side of the beach is a selection of bars, restaurants and supermarkets, ensuring that all of your holiday needs are met. Holidays to Cala Mesquida are a favourite among families who love the easy beach access, as it is with couples looking for a romantic spot to while away their holiday surrounded by unspoilt Balearic views.
