Cala Formentor or Cala Pi de sa Posada is an inlet in the interior of which is located Cala Gentil, as well as Platja de Formentor, the famous hotel with the same name and in front of its coast the Illa de Formentor. The nearest village is Port de Pollença, at 14 kilometres. Hotel Formentor is internationally well known thanks to the famous artists and politicians who stayed here, as well as because of the important events which are organized here. Winston Churchill, John Wayne, Octavio Paz and others have been here. This sandy area is very long but narrow and it is formed by very fine-grained sand of a very clear and white colour. There is a very thick and green pine and holm oak wood on the headland of Formentor that surround this beach. The branches of the trees nearly touch the crystal clear water of the Mediterranean Sea on this wonderful coastal area. The marine and underwater conditions are excellent for anchoring boats. But you are recommended to be extremely careful if the wind blows from the southeast, south, southwest because the anchor might move. The sandy ground is at a depth that ranges from five metres at three hectometres from the coast and three metres at two hectometres from the beach. You are not recommended either to pass or anchor in the channel built by the coast and Illa de Formentor because the depth is only one metres. At 3,5 nautical miles there is Port de Pollença. The accessibility by car is easy following the signs. You can also reach this beach with the public transport. The nearest bus stop is located in the surroundings and this is where you can park as well, although finding a place might be difficult because of the massive influx of local visitors and tourists.

  • Cala Formentor

    beautiful place but I rate only 4 stars because the parking costs 10 euros!

  • Cala Formentor

    It's a lovely beach although it's very small and there are too many private umbrellas

  • Cala Formentor

    La playa es bonita pero no hay sitio para poner la toalla, tres cuartas partes de la pequeña playa está destinada a hamacas de pago

  • Cala Formentor

    Sehr schmaler Strand, der maximal bis ans Wasser genutzt wird. Sehr schönes Wasser, Sand bis weit ins Meer hinein. Wassersport gegen gebühr möglich. Insbesondere der "zahlstrand", der zum Hotel formentor gehört ist recht eng und teuer. Restaurant zu teuer, qualitativ mäßig.

  • Cala Formentor

    El entorno es bonito, con mucha sombra y vistas preciosas, el problema es que la playa apesta a gasoil o combustible de los numerosos barcos del puerto adyacente. Para llegar con coche privado puede uno aparcar en un parking que te clavan 9€/día. Si uno busca un poco más puede aparcar al borde de la carretera. El restaurante L'espigo es caro. Es un autoservicio que en momentos se satura, especialmente porque sólo tiene un cocinero que hace lo que puede. Eso sí, el hombre es amable y no pierde la sonrisa.
