Roques de Cala Major is situated at three kilometres from Palma, between Cala Guix and Cala Major. On this stretch of the coast, very populated and developed, are the first beaches that belong to the municipality of Palma, suburb of Sant Agustí. The old beach of Cala Nova leads to a rocky headland, which is developed until the coastline, although there are still some places for bathing, like Cala Guix, Cova Roja, Roques de Cala Major and Illa de Pujolar, which is the natural border to Cala Major, the biggest and most popular beach of this urban coast. This bathing area can be reached from different places, from both sides, that is from the adjacent beaches (Cala Guix and Cala Major), and from the stairs next to number 305 of calle Joan Miró. Between Cala Guix and the nearby Cala Major there are different places for anchoring boats, but they use to be restricted because of their location in the land and sea security area of palacio Marivent, the summer residence of the Spanish Royal Family since 1973. In the surroundings there is also Fundació Pilar i Joan Miró that shows the artistic works of the painter Joan Miró with a visit to the studio in Son Abrines (designed by Josep Lluís Sert) and the building of expositions (designed by Rafael Moneo). The building was constructed in 1923 upon request of the greek patron Juan de Saridakis by the regionalist architect Guillem Forteza. Information about this beach may change.

    Beautiful, hidden inlets only a stone's throw from many restaurants and shops. This seems like a hidden local gem.
