Paradise of water and sand ,… Cala Galiota wiht Cassai Beach House
Finca Hotel rural Es Turó is situated just 5 kilometers from Es Trenc, one of the most famous beaches of Mallorca due to it´s long stretches of dazzling sand and crystal clear waters. With just under 4 kilometers, this beach belonging to the town of Campos is categorized as a natural reserve and protected land because on it´s virgin sands you can only find very few beach services and curiously enough, several post-war bunkers. The beach also has a nudist zone. Further inland there is a long stretch of forest and brush that leads into gorgeous pine trees.
