Popular calas and beaches in the north of Mallorca
The north coast of Mallorca has two environments of singular beauty at its two ends: the Formentor peninsula, and the Sierra de Levante peninsula
Each one with its peculiarities, they are two wild places on whose coasts we can find small and quiet coves, both rocky and sandy.
Between these two peninsulas we find the bays of Pollensa and Alcudia. The first, smaller, was one of the cradles of tourism in Mallorca, with its legendary Hotel Formentor. This corner of Mallorca, relatively isolated from the rest of the island due to its geography and the different origin of the Christian settlers, has maintained a particular idiosyncrasy that is still perceived in its character and traditions.
To the east, on the other side of the Cap des Pinar peninsula, we find the great bay of Alcudia. Here we can find large sandbanks in different states of conservation
But there are also some of the sectors of Playa de Muro, or Son Serra de Marina, which are practically virgin sandbanks. The winds and currents have modeled beaches with gentle slopes, but when strong winds blow, they delight windsurfers or kitesurfers.

Boats loaded with oil and wine from Mallorca left from here, much appreciated by the patricians of the great metropolis of antiquity. Centuries of Roman presence left a large number of archaeological remains scattered throughout the area, obviously highlighting Pollentia itself, only partially excavated.
But already before the Romans there was a lot of human presence in the area. The Son Real necropolis, also called the Phoenician Cemetery, is a unique site in the Mediterranean, due to the number of burials, their state of conservation, and the information they provided. It is located next to the beach, in the Son Real estate, which is a must-see to learn about the history and customs of this part of Mallorca.
Very close to there is the Natural Park of the Levante Peninsula, a natural environment with a large amount of native flora and fauna, which we can explore on foot or by bicycle, and which also includes several beaches and coves
In this same region (Capdepera and Artá) we can find a good number of unique buildings, such as the Capdepera castle, and old watchtowers and defense towers. Very close to here we have Cala Mesquida, a first-class tourist center with all the comforts to enjoy our stay on the island, but at the same time very close to hidden and quiet places.
In a few dozen kilometers the north of Mallorca can offer a wide variety of experiences to all types of visitors
From the young or family tourist to the highest purchasing level; the one who seeks the sun and beaches of fine sand or the lover of nature and tranquility; those who want to discover the history and traditions of their vacation destination or those who are looking for a party and fun. Nobody is disappointed when visiting this part of the island.
