This beach, wich was located just a short walking distance from our hotel is a tiny wonderful and peaceful piece of white sand. It looks and feels like a tropical lost island with its palm trees and blue sea. it is hidden from the general public most of the times but quite easy to access. Warning: take a good repelent with you if you wish to stay till late.

Best place for snorkeling
Dec. 2016 • Family
This is a small península. One side has a beach on it, but the snorkeling is marvelous on the other side, where we love to anchor our boat. See a nice variety of fish and sea turtles.

Jun. 2016 • Couples
The road to get there is an adventure itself but when you arrive it's worth. Amazing view and lucks like one those place you want to stay forever. The water is so blue and clean. The reefs are fantastic. You have to get there. Believe me is outstanding.

Perfect beach
Oct. 2015 • Solo
Though "desert beach" may be an exaggeration, once you will certainly see other tourists there, this beach offers genuine nature scenery. There are no bars or restaurants, only sea, sand, rocks and a lot of bush surrounding. it is the perfect spot for taking photos or simply relaxing. There is also a park-like area around the beach, good for strolling around. There is no parking lot, but is easy to park your car 2000 meters down the road and walk to the beach entrance. It is a private property but there is no entrance fee.

Unexpected fun
Jul. 2015
A brilliant afternoon was had by the children at a huge inflatable park in the water. They were given buoyancy aids so I felt the children were safe to swim out to the park made of slides, chute etc This was really inexpensive considering how long the children were playing. (5 Euros each)

Great little beach
Apr. 2015 • Couples
Don't be fooled by the gate at the top -- anyone can go down by foot. Having a beach on the right...a rocky coast on the left, and a spacious hilltop park-like area, is absolutely breathtaking. Loved it!

Hidden Treasure

Totally deserted even during the Xmas break.....was a great place to reflect in the early morning Sunshine. No amenities here so bring your own shade/water/food etc

An amazing and lonely place
Calhetas is a amazing beach. It's a little bit difficult to find, but all the efforts are paid off. The place is incredible.

Wild and empty
Dec. 2013 • Couples
Loved this beach - a mix of wild beauty and pristine sand. Noone on it and lovely clear warm sea! Rocks to rest on and a little hill to climb - perfection itself.
