Despite its seclusion, making the journey east into Cala Pi is for the most part usually very straightforward, however,
please be aware that once you have left the Autovia de Levante motorway, the final few miles into the resort are along
a series of narrow, country roads.
Realistically there are only two options available for the journey.
The first, and possibly the most convenient option, would certainly be the door to door service offered by any of the numerous taxis waiting outside of the arrivals hall, who would typically charge around 45€ for the journey.
However, a standard taxi on the island is only licenced to carry a maximum of 4 passengers plus a "reasonable" amount of luggage, so for larger groups of travellers, or those with special needs, it is our recommendation to make provision for a pre-booked taxi to be waiting for you at the airport, and clearly specify at the time of booking that a larger, or specially adapted, vehicle is needed for the journey.
The second option would be to pre-arrange for the collection of a hire car from one of the numerous agencies based at the airport.
Driving over to Cala Pi should be fairly stressless for most drivers, once you have remembered which side of the road to drive on.
A more detailed version of this route, complete with links to maps where appropriate, is available from the Route Map link on the left hand frame of this page. All things considered the transfer should usually take between 40 to 45 minutes, but can and often does vary, depending upon the time of day and the volume of traffic on the Palma motorways.
This little known hideaway on the rugged and unspoilt south coast of Mallorca lies approximately 12km or 7 miles south of the residential town of Llucmayor and is a modestly sized and peaceful resort which is built around a gloriously sheltered cove with the sort of sandy beach with clear turquoise waters that is the stuff of dreams.
The unspoilt and simple blond beach is about 50 metres wide but extends at least 100 metres inland and is reached by a rather daunting flight of steps but it is well worth the effort for the view alone. The cove is flanked on both sides by rather unforgiving cliffs covered in rich and wild vegetation and pine and juniper trees which serve as excellent protection against prevailing winds.
It is for this reason that many a yacht moors here during the busy months. The beach itself with its still, calm waters that resemble a millpond is devoid of tourist tat and refreshment bars, and has a row of dilapidated boathouses running along one side to prove its authenticity.
While many parts of Mallorca have been seduced by the lure of big holiday complexes and rampant tourism, the southern coast has remained stubbornly un-manicured and slightly savage with at times, tempestuous winds coursing through the flat landscape and echoing around the cliff tops.
Ironically it was to this enclave that the first settlers to Mallorca were drawn in the first millennium BC, attracted no doubt by the protected coves and bays, profuse vegetation and excellent agricultural possibilities.
