Calas and beaches of Mallorca


Calas and beaches of Mallorca; discover them, live them, feel them…

Mallorca has 555 km of coastline where there are more than 250 coves and beaches

Along it we can find hundreds of coves and beaches of all sizes: from extensive sandbanks several kilometers long to hidden coves just a few meters wide. The coast of Mallorca can provide the experience that any visitor is looking for.

Several tourist complexes have grown in different points of the coast

Providing tourists with all the possible conveniences in terms of safety, comfort, leisure activities… But it is also possible to find secluded and secluded beaches, practically unknown, a few kilometers away, where you can enjoy peace and quiet.

What is common to all of them is the enjoyment of the normally calm waters of the Mediterranean

And a mild climate with many sunny days a year. That sun that, combined with the sea of Mallorca, creates a light that is unique in the world and that for decades has attracted painters from all over the world to try to capture it.

Its waters, navigated since ancient times, still harbor secrets to be discovered

Hundreds, if not thousands, of ships ended up at the bottom of these waters, victims of storms or pirates, before reaching the refuge provided by the many natural harbors scattered along the coast of Mallorca.

Phoenicians, Greeks, Carthaginians, Romans, Vandals, Byzantines, Arabs, Christians, Ottomans…

For centuries the coasts of Mallorca were a stopover and trade point for all the civilizations of the Mediterranean. And also battlefield. Pirates who established their bases here. Pirates who raided coastal towns for loot and slaves. Empires of Europe, Asia and Africa that landed in coves and beaches along the coast of Mallorca in their power struggles. The entire coast of Mallorca is dotted with historical moments, many of which have left traces that we can also visit.

Beaches and coves full of history, charm…

To relax or to have fun; to practice sports or to lie quietly under the magnificent Majorcan sun. You will be able to discover all this and much more in Mallorqueando, but the important thing is that you discover it and experience it for yourself. Shall we Mallorqueando?

Calas and beaches of the north coast

The north of Mallorca is dominated by the bays of Pollensa and Alcudia

In the first, on the Formentor peninsula, it can be said that international tourism on the island was born, with the historic Hotel Formentor. On the other side of the Cap des Pinar peninsula, already in the Bay of Alcudia, there are the sandy areas of Playa de Alcudia, Playa de Muro and Can Picafort, semi-urban beaches with all services. But next we find Son Serra de Marina, a large virgin sandbank, and the small coves of the Natural Park of the Levante Peninsula. Here we can enjoy a practically intact nature.

Calas and beaches of the east coast

The east of Mallorca has an orography where small coves abound, both sandy and rocky, along with some sandy areas

Here we find modern tourist centers such as Cala Ratjada or Cala Millor, and also one of the oldest in Mallorca with a very particular character: Cala d’Or. Clean and transparent waters, and usually calm, make this destination very appealing for families. For the adventurous, the spectacular cliffs and capricious rock formations will put your climbing and psychobloc skills to the test. And we cannot forget the great underground beauties: the world famous Cuevas del Drach, as well as the Cuevas de Artá and dels Hams.

Calas and beaches of the south coast

Protected from the Tramuntana and other strong winds, in the south of Mallorca the large sandy areas with calm waters dominate, mainly in the bay of Palma

Can Pastilla and s’Arenal are several kilometers of fine sand next to tourist centers with all the comforts. Santa Ponsa, Magaluf and Camp de Mar are other semi-urban beaches to enjoy with the family. Towards the east we find less crowded beaches, such as Sa Ràpita, and the last great virgin beach in Mallorca: Es Trenc. It is also a destination for leisure, fun and shopping, without forgetting the monuments that the capital houses, such as the Cathedral and the Bellver Castle.

Calas and beaches of the Sierra de Tramuntana

Where the slopes of the Sierra de Tramuntana plunge into the sea, we find small rocky coves and boulders with fresh, crystal-clear waters

From Sant Elm, to the south, to the Formentor peninsula to the north, passing through such emblematic places as the port of Valldemossa or s’Estaca, we can relax in these waters while admiring the spectacular mountain landscapes. And then, we can discover dream towns such as Valldemossa or Deià on its slopes and valleys, discovering the history and traditions of the island in its cobbled streets.
