Did you know?
A sailor recorded a sea turtle near the Cala Bassa beach in May 2019. The Sea turtle is not a Balearic coastal animal, in fact, experts claim that the sea turtles are more regularly visiting the Pitiusas due to climate change and the eastern Mediterranean is the natural environment of those animals to lay their eggs. Since that area is becoming warmer, the Marine turtles are dispersing to Italy to find a better habitat.

There is a rocky platform at the beginning of the beach and in the center, there is a large hole to leap to the shore. It is called cave Cala Bassa. You can swim out under the cave, if you jump in the water.
