Morts Cove

The great forgotten

Nobody notices Cales Morts, not even in high season, not even if they are on the way to Pregonda and, in spite of everything, and without knowing it, everyone contributes to its formation.

As the name suggests, this cove is dead. It does not stand out for its vegetation or fauna, but for its rocks. Hundreds of stones piled one on top of the other. It is not known who threw the first stone, but what is certain is that he was not the last.

The cove is formed mainly by gravel, but it is also possible to find some patches of posidonia and small sandy areas.

Next to Binimel-là, this beach is framed in a nature reserve of quiet and solitary character.

What to see near Cala Morts

The truth is that this is a complicated cove.

Its seabed is rocky and, due to the posidonia present in some areas, the marine life it harbors is abundant. Thanks to this, it is possible to dive in its waters and learn about the biodiversity found there.

However, these same rocky bottoms make it an uncomfortable beach for bathing and dangerous for boats, as its steep cliffs make it practically inaccessible.
