Ca los Camps, a prehistoric port, Mallorca

This coastal corner is the result of the mouth of the Torrent dels Cocons (which comes from the comellar with the same name) and the marine erosion which has formed a v-shaped sea inlet of fossil dune. This beautiful virgin beach has a quite gentle slope, pebbles, a stony ground and the presence of tamarisks next to the coastline.

There are also some escars (dry docks) and a defense place from machine-gunning during the Civil War. From this cove on, the coast has less vegetation and becomes steeper.
 
This beach is located between the village of Betlem and Colònia de Sant Pere. In a forest nearby, which you can reach walking on the trail which is parallel to the coast and passing the possessió (rural finca) Son Mascaró toward west, you will find the prehistoric Talaiots de Can Pa amb Oli (“bread with oil” is a typical majorcan dish made of a piece of bread with tomato on in and a bit of olive oil).
