Mallorca's Best Beaches
The island of Mallorca is blessed with 262 beaches with a total length of 50km! Here are a few of our selected favourite spots for the summer:
Cala Portals Vells
A beach of sand and rocks located a few kilometres from Cala Vinyes in the area of Calvià. It is a secluded and very beautiful place where lots of boats come to in search of crystal clear waters, with a small cove and two swimming areas. To the right of the beach you will find a path to access the interesting ´la Mare de Déu´ cave.
The beach restaurant specialises in seafood and rice dishes.
Fisherman’s hideaways built into the rocks, located near the village of Deià, It is an idyllic and very popular tourist place. There is an area on the rocks with stairs from which the brave jump into the sea.
Playa de Alcudia
One of the finest beaches on the island of Mallorca has a three-and-a-half kilometre white sandy beach, starting near the port. A bridge crosses the canal halfway along the beach, which links to a natural lake, once part of S’Albufera. Boat trips to Menorca (Ciutadella) leave from the port.
It is a popular tourist place and we can find a wide variety of restaurants all along this extensive beach.
Considered by many to be the most natural and famous beach in Mallorca. A beach of white and fine sand with crystal clear water. It can be very busy, despite the beach being more than 3km long. Es Trenc is a protected area. Position yourself as far as possible from the large car park for a quieter day.
The Mondragó Nature Reserve has two main beaches of which S’Amarador (accessed by a coastal path) is the largest and least busy. There is a take-away snack and drinks beach hut available. You can park at the nature reserve reception, a few minutes’ walk away from the beaches.
Playa de Sa Canova
This beach sweeps around the bay of Alcúdia from Son Serra de Marina to Colònia de Sant Pere. A long sandy stretch, backed by extensive dunes with marked pathways and the Na Borges stream run-ning down to the sea. There are two restaurants which overlook the sea at Son Serra. In windy weath-er, this is a great place to catch a wave whether kite-surfing, windsurfing or on a board.
Playa de Formentor
Formentor beach is a one kilometre sand-beach, located a few kilometres from Puerto Pollensa. The place is fairly narrow and surrounded by forest, always close to the crystal clear water. Very busy in high season. You can arrive by a car or a boat from Puerto Pollensa.
Hidden & Deserted Beaches
A beautiful, wild cove located halfway between the developments of Cales de Mallorca and Cala Ro-mantica, Manacor. It is prohibited to park nearby due to being a protected natural area. Its white sand and turquoise waters make this a popular spot for those prepared to take the 15-minute walk through the pine trees down to the beach, carrying everything needed for a day by the sea.
At the foot of Puig Mayor, Mallorca’s highest mountain, with a backdrop of mountains, pine and olive trees. A narrow winding road from the Sa Calobra pass winds down to this tranquil spot, with sand and gravel underfoot and a small beach restaurant.
