Already visible from afar, the Castell de Capdepera rises above the narrow, winding streets of the town in the northeast of the island. It was not until the end of the 17th century that people settled below the 159 m Puig de Capdepera and the place we know today was built. The bay of Cala Mesquida is surrounded by some crags and is embedded in a unique dune landscape, which is under protection. Countless species of birds and free-roaming animals can be observed here between shrubs and pines. The dunes themselves are not accessible, but some wooden bridges invite to a short hike. The Mediterranean is crystal clear at the level of the bay, the water drops only flat. The Cala Mesquida is known for the fact that there are often high waves in the immediate vicinity of the shore. Due to the forming undercurrent, it is advisable to pay attention to the flag at this point and only to bathe in the water when it is green. The rough sandy beach is barrier-free and about 300 meters long and almost 120 meters wide. There is no vegetation near the sea, a natural shade can not be found here. But around 300 beach chairs and 100 umbrellas can be rented. The beach is guarded throughout the whole summer season, a Red Cross station is also available, which have motor boats for emergency situations. For this reason, the beach is also good for families. The back part of the beach is used as nudist beach. The Cala Mesquida has showers and toilets. The town offers a special spectacle every year on the third weekend of May, there is a medieval festival. In addition to various dance and theater performances, especially medieval crafts and epicurean delicacies are offered. Especially the art of wickerwork, which is maintained in the place until today, can be admired here.
