Punta de n’Amer

Punta de n'Amer a Cala Millor, Mallorca

La Punta de n´Amer is a protected natural area covering 200 hectares on the small peninsula which separates Sa Coma from Cala Millor. There are areas of pine and tamarisk vegetation, as well as what´s left of the dune landscape that once existed at the beach of Cala Millor. There are also remains of a prehistoric human presence, such as the inhabited cave of Ses Crestes, the entrance of which looks directly out to sea, or the talayot (prehistoric dry-stone tower) of Tancat de Sa Torre. On the coast, not too far from the beach of Sa Coma, we see what was once a quarry next to the sea.

At one end of the peninsula lies a square defence tower surrounded by a moat; this was built at the end of the 17th century to prevent attacks by pirates from North Africa and today it houses a small museum, the terrace of which affords great views over the coast. Next door is a bar which stays open into the night and which serves food, providing an ideal spot to relax.

Horses can be hired from both the Sa Coma and Cala Millor side of the peninsula for those wishing to ride along the paths covering this area.
