Cala Saladeta can be spotted from the neighboring bay of Cala Salada, but getting there is a just a wee bit of a challenge in the peak of summer – be prepared to clamber over the rocky divide! The (potentially sweaty) result is well worth it, when you arrive at the smaller, quieter beach with amazing snorkeling opportunities – after all, a quick dive into the sea and you’re instantly refreshed. There are no tourist amenities or chiringuitos (unless you want to trek or swim back over to Cala Salada), so pack a picnic, bring an umbrella and enjoy the chilled out vibe!
Best time to go
The trek towards the beach is obviously at its hottest when the sun’s at its peak; avoid peak sunny hours to make the journey more bearable. And another bonus – being on the west side means Cala Saladeta keeps the sun until well after 9pm, when the temps are slightly cooler.
The secluded little beach is ideal for watching the sunset, and it’s just a short drive from San Antonio.
