The small tranquil resort of Font de sa Cala is part of the municipal district of Capdepera, and is quietly tucked away on the north east coast of the island, approximately 3 - 4 kilometres south of the larger resort of Cala Ratjada, which during the summer months, is a popular holiday destination for both German and other central European visitors to Mallorca.
A small road train links the two resorts during the summer months, and it operates a regular service throughout the day with the round trip costing little more than four euros.
Driving over to Font de sa Cala from the capital
Son Sant Joan International airport,
some 70 kilometres away to the south west, is actually quite a pleasant journey, although after a 2 hour flight I doubt if many
visitors really get to fully appreciate the journey.
For those visitors who choose to drive, the main Ma-15 and Ma-4040 roads take you almost all of the way into the resort, passing through the towns of Manacor and Son Servera on the way.
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.
Also for the growing numbers of visitors who prefer a taxi transfer to their chosen accommodation, there are always plenty of taxis available from the ranks outside of the arrivals hall, although on occasions you should be prepared to queue.
In theory at least, these vehicles should all operate on a fixed price basis, typically charging around €85 for the journey to Font de sa Cala.
Once you have arrived in the resort, and have had the opportunity to settle into your chosen accommodation, you will quickly discover that Font de sa Cala, Cala Capdepera, or whatever else you now wish to call it, is very compact, and has so far not been affected by over commercialism, unlike so many other resorts along the south coast of island.
Font de sa Cala is most suited towards the holidaymaker looking for a relaxing and peaceful vacation, with the added benefits of sunshine, beautiful white sands, clear blue waters and not forgetting a picturesque location.
On the beach, which has been extended over the years to make it larger at some 100 metres wide by 60 metres, you will find a small bar/café, along with a further selection of other cafes, restaurants, bars, supermarkets and gift shops to choose from in the resort itself.
For a place so small, quite surprisingly Font de sa Cala does actually have some fine hotels, most of which are directly onto or facing the beach, from where you can then take glass bottom boat trips to nearby Cala Agulla, the Caves of Artá and the special Pirate trip which is especially popular with the younger holidaymakers.
For the more sports minded visitor, then there is also a dive centre and jet ski hire centre. And if you want to stay in trim while on holiday, or want to miss the hot midday sun, then there is a gym and fitness club in the resort which visitors are welcome to join.
