The cool crowd flock to this bustling beach by day and stick around for sunset.

I’ve been in love with Cala Conte since the first moment I laid eyes on it back in 2005, and I make a point of stopping by whenever I’m in the area, even if just for a quick sweep of the view. I love the variety it offers – three small patches of sand set on a triangle shaped peak, each offering a different view and unique vibe, plus a rocky flat ledge ideal for diving off in the small cove where glamorous yachts dock for the day.

With beautiful views across to the islands of Isla des Bosc and Conillera (rumoured to have been the home of witches and a black magic playground many moons ago), not to mention front-row seats for nature’s nightly sunset showcase, it’s one of the most beautiful places on the island without a doubt. Though not “officially” a nudist beach, don’t be surprised to see a few bare bums!

Eating and drinking

There are three restaurants dotting the shoreline – my favourite being the bohemian-esque Sunset Ashram, which also offers takeaways – but you’ll also find people selling drinks straight from their cool boxes or fresh watermelon and coconut from baskets on the beach.

Value for money

Price advice

Sunbeds and umbrellas will set you back 6 euros each.

Expert tips

The water conditions here can be quite choppy and unpredictable at times, so be careful – not just in the water, but on the sand too, as waves have a tendency to wash over towels and belongings unexpectedly.

Arrive early to score a good spot on the sand in August, as it’s a favoured haunt of the French and Italian holidaymakers who hit the island on their annual holidays, making it very crowded indeed.

Be sure to stick around for sunset – there’s nothing quite like the feeling of watching it sink into the sea from your privileged place on the sand.
