Platja de Capifort or Cala Presili is situated at 17 kilometres from Maó, located between Punta de Presili and Cap de Favàritx or Punta de Capifort, where the Àrea Natural d'Especial Interès of the Albufera es Grau finishes (70 hectares in area and an average depth of 1,5 metres; very rich landscape and many species of flora and fauna). This beach is the result of a very open sea inlet which is also the origin of other coastal corners, as s'Arenal de Morella. The sides of the hills in the surroundings are the natural breakwaters. They are quite high, abrupt and steep, with no vegetation. The marine and underwater conditions for anchoring boats are good if you are very careful. This coastal corner is surrounded by two capes (Mossèn Vives and Favàritx). It is exposed to the wind from the east, although it is sheltered in the northern area by Punta de Capifort (high and steep cliffs, which continue in the sea for 0,9 nautical miles toward east). In the centre of the entrance there is a flagstone near the coast, at a depth of two metres. The accessibility by car is easy following the signs and the deviations. The private car can be left on a free parking area in the surroundings. The last part has to be done on foot because it belongs to the natural reserve of s'Albufera es Grau. Main technical data Type of access: For pedestrians - For vehicles - For boats Access for disabled people: No
