The beaches in general
Cala Algaiarens consists of two beaches: Platja des Bot and Platja es Tancats, which is the largest one.
The two beaches are situated inside a beautiful rocky bay, which makes it one of the best protected beaches on the north coast.
Both beaches have fine-grained, bright sand, some places with a lovely reddish colour. The water is clear and deepens slowly, especially at the smallest beach, Platja des Bot. This is also the beach with the best protection against waves.
The beaches have no particular facilities, however, there are toilets and supervision by a lifeguard during the high season. It is possible to go by car almost all the way to the beaches and there is a parking space by the large beach, Platja es Tancats.
With their fine-grained sand and shallow, calm water, the beaches are very child-friendly.
Water sports activities
During the summer season, it is possible to rent sea kayaks at the beach. The bay is also very suitable for snorkelling or a nice swim in the beautiful scenery.
There are no beach bars or restaurants by the beaches.
