Cala Deia – updated 28 September 2022
A small, picturesque shingle beach framed by the stunning Tramuntana mountains and located on the northwest coast of Mallorca. The rocky, rugged beach has very clear 6m deep waters and is only around 70m long.
The tiny cove beach is mostly made up of large rocks and small pebbles with glistening rock pools and great views. It has two restaurants, which both provide local cuisine such as tapas, paella and an assortment of fish.
Located just outside the beautiful village of Deià, the beach is very popular with locals and visitors and is a favourite destination for artists. It is not unusual to see the occasional celebrity on the beach.
Swimming, snorkelling & diving
Cala Deia is an ideal location for swimming, snorkelling and diving due to the crystal-clear waters; however, there are no equipment rental facilities on the beach so you will need to bring your own.
The beach is not considered to be family-friendly due to the rocky beach and lack of sand; it also has multiple jellyfish sightings during the summer months. The beach also has no umbrellas, lounge chairs, water sports activities or lifeguard and access to first aid is minimal. The beach does have toilets and showers.
Many visitors enjoy walking along the cliffs up to the former pirate tower with its terrific views.
You can get to the beach by car and if you arrive early enough, there is a small car park or you could park in the village and walk, it is around 3 km.
Deia is a small mountain-coastal village that has attracted artists, tourists and celebrities for many years. One of the prettiest villages in Mallorca, Deia is part of a landscape awarded World Heritage Site status. The writer Robert Graves famously lived in the village twice with many of his creative, artistic friends coming to visit and Deia quickly gained a reputation as an artist’s retreat.
