Along Mallorca’s southeastern coast you’ll find a collection of sweet coastal towns, idyllic beach coves, and one especially photo-beckoning sight, Es Pontàs. This natural rock arch loops high out of the clear, crystalline waters just off shore, where it lures everyone from sunrise seekers to picture takers and rock climbers.
And its location near other ideal island destinations makes it an even more deserving trek. While in the area, claim a plot of sand on the nearby, cove-protected Cala Santanyi beach; explore the sweet, old-world streets of the more inland town of Santanyi; and wander the coastal trails of Mondrago Natural Park.
Es Pontàs is located between the beaches Cala Santanyi and Cala Llombards. To reach the Es Pontàs lookout just follow the signs to Cala Santanyi and then Es Pontàs. Reaching the actual lookout then requires a short walk through rocky terrain, so beach shoes aren’t recommended.
