The island of Mallorca is known for its turquoise waters and scenic natural beauty, and Coll Baix Beach is no exception to this. What makes this secluded beach special, aside from its idyllic surroundings, is the fact that it is protected and often deserted. Because it is difficult to reach, crowds are nearly nonexistent and you may even have the beach to yourself.
Opening out into a wide sea inlet, the soft and sandy beach is surrounded by tall, rocky cliffs and Mediterranean forest. It is hard to imagine clearer or more vibrantly colored waters. The stunning beach is most popular with those who love the outdoors and don’t mind some hiking — as it is only accessible by boat or foot. Those who go will undoubtedly agree that the trek is worth it. Boat operators often lead tours from town. It’s quietest in the morning and evening.
Coll Baix is located on the northern coast of the island, about seven kilometers from Alcúdia old town. The best way to get there is with a car — you’ll drive the Cami del Mal Pas out of town. Once you reach the closest part by car, it’s about five rocky kilometers on foot before you reach the beach. Though its off-shore waters are relatively shallow, you’ll want to take care when swimming as there is no lifeguard on duty.
