BEACHES IN THE SOUTH
Es Trenc an unspoiled long beach with turquoise water and sand dunes in a natural park. It is one of the most popular beaches on the Island for its Caribbean feel. Wild and natural, Es Trenc offers few amenities; just one restaurant and a few “chiringuitos” are available. Accessible through the villages of Sa Rapita / Ses Covetes, Ses Salines or Colonia San Jordi.
Can be crowded at peak times, especially during weekends.
Playa d’es Caragol is a wild and isolated beach with sand dunes and clear water. Only reachable by a 20 minute walk from Faro de Ses Salines, making it quieter than other beaches. Nudism is permitted.
CALAS IN THE EAST
Cala Mondragó and Playa S’Amarador white sand and crystal clear waters await you at these 2 beautiful coves at the edge of a natural reserve. You can walk across them with the right footwear. Although surrounded by pine trees, they offer all you can ask for: a small bar, toilets and showers, sun loungers and umbrellas. Might get busy in high season.
Cala Llombards is a secluded beach surrounded by cliffs, rocks and pines. A sheltered bay with white soft sand and clear water. Gentle waves make it ideal for snorkelling and swimming with children. If you make your way there, we suggest a stop off at the picturesque fishing harbour of Cala Figuera – Mediterranean flair at its best.
Cala Romantica crystal clear shallow water, ideal to go snorkelling around the cliffs. The beautiful Cala Mandia and Cala Anguila are right next to it.
Cala Mitjana, Cala Torta and Cala Mesquida these 3 secluded sandy beaches are quite remote so be prepared for a bumpy ride through a small mountain range. They are some of the most natural beaches on the island and if you head for Cala Torta, there’s a small beach bar open in peak season.
Backed by dunes and mountains, they have an unspoilt feel and are less populated because of their location.
Cala Agulla natural and wild feeling in this blue flag beach surrounded by pine trees. Take a dip in the beautiful turquoise water.
Playa de Muro a kilometre-long fine, white sand beach with a choice of watersports activities. Plenty of umbrellas and sun loungers are available and lively beach bars, some with live music, are part of the attraction of this beach.
Formentor has been voted as one of the best beaches in the world. Paradisiac landscape and turquoise blue water like the Caribbean, this beach is a true hideaway. Bar-Restaurant and exclusive sunbeds to be booked ahead. For breath-taking scenery head towards Cap de Formentor. Once the winding roads have been navigated there are several viewpoints from which to admire the dramatic coastline. The final stretch of the coastal road offers more impressive views at the lighthouse.
Cala San Vicenç a small secluded resort sitting in a north corner of the island. It is a relaxed place with two sheltered sandy bays and a rocky cove set against a rugged cliff backdrop. Surrounding the bay is a mix of hotels, restaurants and shops offering everything for a chilled out beach break.
WEST COAST GEMS
Sa Calobra and Torrent de Pareis this bay is a true must see for all adventure lovers with a breath-taking setting and stunning views over the Sierra de Tramuntana.
Cala Tuent submerge in the refreshing blue water surrounded by amazing lush mountain scenery.
Port de Soller sandy beach set in the romantic fishing harbour, seaside promenade with restaurants, bars and shops.
For charming shingle coves try Deià, Banyalbufar and Estellencs.
Cala Deià is our pick of the beaches in the West. It’s a pebble beach with beautiful clear water and the well-known Restaurant Cas Patro March sitting on the rocks looking out to sea. It is essential to book ahead.
Why is the Mediterranean Sea around Mallorca so blue?
The water around the island of Mallorca is particularly clear and transparent, the bright sand contrasts to dark areas of sea grass and rocks. The crystal-clear water we owe to the “Posidonia oceanica” in Latin, Poseidon grass, also called green treasure, on the seabed. This grass is abundant in the sea off the Balearic Islands. The protected Neptune grasslands and algae, filter the water through its photosynthesis porcess, This generates an increase in biodiversity and an exceptional oxygenation of the water, which leaves behind landscapes like those that the fortunate people of the Balearic Islands are accustomed to seeing.
Castell Son Claret wishes you a wonderful
and relaxed day by the beach!
