Cala Pilar is almost an inaccessible beach because it has no parking and you have to walk a bit through a pine forest to reach it, but the route definitely pays off and the prize is getting to a spectacular wild beach.
The beach is 250m long and 30 wide, the sand is golden and the cove is located in a semiarid environment, surrounded by cliffs, reddish argillaceous rocks and crystalline waters.
Remember that the Tramontana in this part of the island can be particularly strong, so if you go far into the sea to take a bath precautions should be maximized during windy days.
The beach is ideal for diving as it is within a nature reserve and has abundant marine flora and fauna.
It’s a pretty secluded beach with no services, facilities or restaurants, so it is usually uncrowded and ideal for visitors seeking peace and quiet, go prepared with everything you need for the day. Do not think twice and come.
We recommend checking the weather before visiting this beach because in the days that Tramontana is blowing, the waves are usually strong which won’t let you enjoy the beach as you would on any other day.
