La Caleta is a beach located in the historical center of the city of Cádiz, Spain. It is a natural harbor by which Phoenicians, Carthaginians and Romans penetrated historically. It is the smallest beach in the city, and is isolated from the others.
On the beach is El Balneario de la Palma, a building that was built between 1924 and 1926 originally as a spa to replace the old baths. However as its popularity fell, it became used for other purposes and by other people from 1936 up until 1975 when it was abandoned. The spa continued to deteriorate as time progressed, eventually becoming a site of cultural interest in 1990. The spa is now used by the Centre for Underwater Archaeology and the Andalusian Historical Heritage Institute.
