Geologically it is the mouth of an ancient torrent, today surrounded by hotels and beachfront villas, as you can see in the photo below.
This beach is very iconic for having a small islet just in front of the beach known as “La Illeta” (the little island), connected to the shore by a narrow wooden bridge. This small island is home to a famous restaurant and the bridge serves as a wharf for the swallows of the surrounding area.

To reach Camp de Mar beach by car from Palma de Mallorca you must drive along the Ma-20 ring road towards Andratx. After the exit of Paguera, pay attention to a traffic circle that will warn you of the detour to Camp de Mar. The total distance is approximately 25‘.
You can park your car, depending on the time of the year and the time of the day, with a little more ease or difficulty, in the accesses to the beach of Camp de Mar and surroundings that are full of villas and hotels.
Getting to Camp de Mar by public transportation
Reaching the beach of Camp de Mar is also possible by public transport, which we also recommend you to use, especially when visiting certain places during the summer, which is when there is an increase in car rental in Mallorca.
To do so, from Palma, you will have to go to the Intermodal Station in Parc de Ses Estacions and take the bus line 101 which will take about 30′ to drop you off at a stop that is only 2′ walk from the beach of Camp de Mar.
If you decide to arrive by cab 🚕a Camp de Mar it is possible that the price may be more or less expensive depending on the part of Mallorca you come from.
In this article you will find a table with approximate prices and a phone book with all the cab companies operating on the island. Even so, we recommend that you make sure when you call to find out how much it will cost you. Avoid last minute surprises!
Sailing in Camp de Mar
Can you imagine yourself sailing through these spectacular crystal clear waters?
In Camp de Mar you will find excellent marine conditions for sailing and anchoring boats, as the beach is exposed to winds from the south-southwest-west-west, which are calmer winds. Nothing to do with the winds that you will find in the north of the island, stronger and more dangerous as those of Cala Mesquida, Cala Agulla and many other beaches and coves in the north of Mallorca.
If you intend to approach the shore with your boat, you must be aware that you cannot get closer than a certain distance from the shore. It is strictly forbidden for boats, but you can dock your boat in the vicinity of the islet. There you will find a sandy bottom with a depth ranging between 4-5 meters.
If you do not have a boat, you can rent a boat at Club Nàutic Santa Ponça, which is the nearest port at 3.8 nautical miles from Camp de Mar.
⚠️ Be careful with the Posidonia oceanica! In Mallorca there are a lot of Posidonia meadows, so if you rent a boat we ask you to pay special attention when anchoring so as not to anchor over them and damage them. They are the lungs of the Balearic Islands and the secret of its waters!
Thank you for respecting it ❤️!
