Cala Mendia is a beach located at about three kilometres from Porto Cristo, following the road towards Portocolom. The cliffs keep the surroundings of this sea inlet which continues for 150 metres toward the interior and finishes on a fine-grained, white sandy area, wide and large. The water is crystal clear and the beach is open to the winds from the north-east and east, with an excellent sandy ground for anchoring boats.
The accessibility by car is easy following the signs. The car can be left on a free parking area in the surroundings of Cala Mendia.
One of the most recent tourist resorts on Mallorca has been developed around Cala Mendia beach, in the municipality of Manacor, next to Porto Cristo. Although development was approved in 1972, it wasn´t until the 1990s that this zone was subjected to strong construction and urban growth. There are some hotels but the majority of buildings are single-family constructions and tourist apartments.
