Es Pontàs

Top choice in Southern Mallorca

One of the top photo-ops on the south coast, this natural arch in between Cala Santanyí and Cala Llombards is a simply stunning sight. If you're fortunate to get here for sunrise, it's a standout image and one guaranteed to garner Instagram likes-a-plenty. You can park your car nearby and walk the short distance to the mirador overlooking the sublime and wave-thrashed rock form.
