There are many places on the island that seem to be 'off the beaten track', but even places that are only reached on long bumpy dirt tracks are usually discovered and well-known to locals and tourists alike. The 'unknown cala' is one exception. I call it unknown because it was the only cove on my map which didn't have a name. It certainly deserves the designation 'off the beaten track' for when we visited on a beautiful sunny day in May there were no more than a handful of people on the beach.
The only way to get there is on foot. It is a fifteen minute walk from the second parking lot of Son Saura. Getting to the parking is already quite adventurous. It involves a long drive on a bumpy dirt track. The whole area is private property so you have to pay an entrance fee.
You could also walk to the cala from the parking of Cala Turqueta, it is a bit longer, but there is no entrance fee.
