Calo Es Caló39’ 46”.5 N, 3’ 20”.1 E
anchorage on mallorca
Unfortunately, a north-easterly swell, which can be quite common in the bay, often works its way round into the cala, making a prolonged stay impossible. However, with Colonia only 30 minutes away and Alcudia two hours across the bay, there are plenty of alternatives if the swell does get up.
More often than not, however, Calo Es Caló is sheltered and calm, an ideal location for skippers new to a yacht, or to charter, to drop the anchor in the clear waters of Mallorca and relax. The man-made mole provides additional shelter and the holding is generally good over sand and weed, although patches of stony ground with poor holding are reported.
