Cala Boquer in Mallorca

Cala Boquer in Mallorca is another bay on the island that you won’t find in typical guidebooks about the island. This place is quite hard to reach, due to its location. To get to Cala Boquer, you have to park your car near this location “39.91304042599087, 3.083920903042578” and then walk about 1,5 hours. The route is easy and very scenic, due to the fact that a valley of the same name leads to the bay. There are no services on the bay itself, and there are no lifeguards, so it is very important that you stock up on drinks and food, as well as hats/umbrellas for the beach. The beach is rocky, so swimming shoes will definitely come in handy as well.

On the way to Cala Boquer you will pass Boquer houses. Some of them were built in the 17th century. Interestingly, you will also pass by a prehistoric talaiot village and you will be able to see what the construction and residential areas of the local people looked like thousands of years ago. Boquer Valley is a wilderness area that is barely disturbed by tourists. The bay itself lies at the foot of the Serra de Tramuntana mountains, whose landscape is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The local nature, picturesque landscapes and wildness are very impressive.

Cala Boquer in Mallorca beach is not large in size, but it attracts with its beautiful views, tranquility, unspoiled surroundings and the opportunity to visit a place where few tourists get to. From the beach you can see the north-facing cliff of Punta Nau, which is an unparalleled view. It is a great place to take pictures, relax and create memories. It is also possible to take a bus to the point where the Cami Boquer trail begins, so the place is not complicated to visit despite the long distance.

What to do in the Cala Boquer area?

Be sure to visit Formentor and the surrounding scenic spots and bays. I heartily recommend Mirador Es Colomer, Playa Formentor, Cala Figuera and of course Cap de Formentor. A little further away it is worth visiting places such as Pollensa, Alcudia, Playa de Muro, or also a beautiful place with winding roads, Sa Calobra. The possibilities are really many, because the area around the Serrra de Tramuntana Mountains is extremely scenic.

I’m very curious to know if any of my readers have ever been to Cala Boquer Bay. It’s not that obvious a place, so be sure to let me know in the comments if you’ve made it there! 🙂
