Cala Major

 

Cala Major is situated at four kilometres west from Palma, very near the regionalist-style palace of Marivent, summer residence of the Spanish Royal Family, which rises between the cliffs of Porto Pi and Cala Major. Another point of reference of this tourist suburb is Fundació Pilar i Joan Miró, built on finca de Son Boter, where Joan Miró (Barcelona, 1893-Palma, 1983), worldwide known surrealist painter, developed the most important part of his artistic work. 

This beach suffered, at the end of the 20th century, an artificial regeneration in order to get its image back, with the introduction of tons of sand, although the natural rocks were kept. A little breakwater, used as solarium, splits up Cala Major into two parts. 
The proximity to Palma explains that it is an urban beach with massive influx of local and tourist visitors. There is a pay-parking for private cars and the bus stop is at about hundred metres. 

This sandy area is protected from the winds from east by the vertical cliff of the palace of Marivent, and from the air from west by the huge wall of hotels that reach the sand. 

The characteristics of the marine ground of this beach, sand and a depth of five metres, allows anchoring boats. The proximity of the royal palace prohibits the anchoring of any type of boat for security reasons. The nearest port facilities are located at Escola Nacional de Vela de Calanova, at a half nautical mile.

Municipality information Palma

The municipality of Palma is situated in the southwest of Majorca, and it is the most important municipality in population. The city of Palma is the political, administrative and business centre of the Balearic archipelago. The service sector, tourism and construction lead the economy since the sixties of the 20th century. Quinto Cecilio Metelo founded Palma in 123 BC after conquering Majorca for Rome in order to definitely control the Mediterranean basin. Medina Mayurqa, the Arab name of Palma, was integrated in the omeyan state of Al-Andalus at the beginning of the 10th century. The Christian king Jaume I d’Aragó conquered the island on the 31st of December 1229, calling it Ciutat de Mallorques. In 1230 it became the capital of the Regne de Mallorca. The landscape is characterized by an extensive coastal stretch (with a high rocky western area and a low sandy coast toward east), Serra de Tramuntana (western limit: Pujol des Gat, 510 metres high), the interior of Pla de Palma (northern area, concentration of agricultural land), Pla de Sant Jordi (eastern sector, irrigated agricultural land) and transition areas toward sa Marina de Llucmajor and Pla de Mallorca (eastern end, with some wild and some cultivated high areas). This municipality is irrigated beach some torrents that flow into the sea on its coast, with Torrent de sa Riera flowing through the city centre. 

The cultural variety includes the old town of Palma (Roman, Arab, Jewish vestiges, stately palaces and courtyards), Castell de Bellver (round military fortress of the 14th century, at 112 metres to guard the bay of Palma), la Seu (gothic cathedral with the later intervention of the architect Antoni Gaudí and the painter Miquel Barceló), Palau de l’Almudaina, Convent de Sant Francesc (with the tomb of Ramon Llull), Consolat de Mar (seat of the Govern de les Illes Balears), sa Llotja, Ajuntament de Palma, Consell de Mallorca, Gran Hotel, Palau Solleric, Palau March or Fundació Joan i Pilar Miró, where a big part of the graphic works of Joan Miró are guarded. The municipality has 13 beaches.
