Millions of people today take a look at Mallorca to devote time on the amazing beaches that dot Mallorca’s astounding coastline. There are 262 beaches on Mallorca with a total length of 50 km. That is a lot of beach! From secluded beaches, to wide sandy stretches or rocky bays, the decision is vast. Mallorca’s excellent beaches have been but once again recognised with the blue flag awards. The island now has 31 blue flag beaches.
I imagined all the beaches on Mallorca to be super crowded and complete of sun loungers and restaurants, so I was pleasantly shocked to obtain so numerous tiny secluded beaches. In reality, most of the beaches I spent time on had been fairly quiet. I do assume going in mid Could was a genuinely excellent get in touch with, as I know in higher season issues get a lot busier. It was valuable obtaining a auto to get off the beaten track and really it is a need to if you want to make the most of the island. The climate in Mallorca in Could is best – hot sufficient to go swimming but not so hot that you fry. And even though through my exploration in Mallorca I went to a lot of beaches, a couple of stuck out as clear favourites. So right here are my prime six ideal beaches.
This beautiful narrow beach, on the Formentor peninsula, is lined with pine trees. You are usually close to the clear sparkling water of the Mediterranean when you want to cool off and the views across the Bay of Pollensa, with boats bobbing nearby, are dreamy. You can arrive right here by boat from Puerto Pollensa or by auto.
The drive from Alcudia or Pollensa is spectacular. Cala Formentor is 1 of my favored beaches in Mallorca. I visited very late in the day when there had been incredibly couple of people today. The beach has an nearly Thai vibe about it. Adding to it is allure had been the boats anchored just off shore. Just before or following going to this beach you need to drive to Cap de Pera Lighthouse. The drive to the lighthouse is definitely spectacular. Automobiles are banned from June to September as the road has turn into clogged of late with vehicles and coaches creating their way to the lighthouse. The parking when you got there was mayhem and the cafe was more than run. Out of season it is considerably quieter and nicely worth the drive.
Es Calo des Moro
This need to arguably be the most lovely beach in Mallorca. A private foundation owns and cares for this beach, so it is beautifully maintained and you will not see any hotels or beach bars right here. You do have to scramble down a lot of rocks to get right here but I assume the added work to get right here tends to make it even a lot more specific. The beach itself is genuinely modest, so I picture in the summertime it could get a lot a lot more crowded than when I was there in mid Could. Calo des Moro is 1 of Mallorca’s ideal kept secret beaches, that every person knows about.
For a lengthy time, this tiny stretch of fine white sand and translucent turquoise blue water, was comparatively unknown due to the fact of the difficulty in reaching it, but lately the word has spread. Situated on the southeast of the island, about six kilometres from the town of Santanyi, Cala des Moro is well-known with locals and now with vacationers, specifically Germans, who appreciate the adventure of having there and it is impressive beauty. The beach is about 40-metres lengthy and the sea stretches far out involving steep cliffs. The beach is surrounded by pine trees and low lying scrubs and plants. Although the water is calm, this is much less a youngster-friendly beach as there is generally restricted area to play on the sand and specifically due to the fact of the steep decent to arrive. In addition, there are no facilities, no restaurants, no lounge chairs and umbrellas, and no water sports for employ, and tiny incredibly close by. In peak summer season months it can be tricky to stake out a spot on the sand. Several people today leave their bags on a rock and merely love the water.
S’Amarador is surrounded by all-natural sand dunes, forests, and rocky coves rather of resorts. There are really 3 beaches right here, S’Amarador, Cala Mondrago, and the smaller sized Cala d’en Borgit, but S’Amarador was my favored.
S’Amarador is a fairly large beach, and given that it is only accessible by auto it wasn’t also busy when I went. But it was nonetheless lively and I loved that I could also stroll to the other beaches from right here. S’Amarador is an award-winning glorious white sand beach that is component of the protected Mondrago National Park (south east Majorca, close to Cala d’Or), and so is beautifully unspoilt. Its comparatively isolated place signifies only these with vehicles or boats can access it. There are sunbeds and parasols to rent, and a modest bar for refreshments. Toilets and showers are obtainable. Free of charge auto parking is obtainable about a 5 minute stroll away.
Sa Calobra Beach
The drive to Sa Calobra with its breathtaking drops and numerous hairpins was almost certainly the highlight of going to Mallorca, from a scenery point of view. It is a genuinely spectacular road. At 1 point the road cleaves involving two cliff faces with barely area for a coach to pass by means of. The setting down there is lovely.
To get to the actual beach and you have to stroll by means of a lengthy tunnel in the mountainside. The beach is created up of modest stones rather of sand, but the water is so amazingly clear that I assume it is worth the take a look at. This may really have been the prettiest spot I went swimming in Mallorca, as there had been lots of fish and the surrounding cliffs created for some dramatic views. There’s speak of banning vehicles down there in the higher season but a bus will be laid on to ferry guests back and forth, so you will nonetheless be in a position to encounter 1 of the wonders of Mallorca.
Cala Llamp is about 5k from Port Andratx and is in a secluded spot, surrounded by mountains. The water in the rocky Cala Llamp is crystal clear and therefore best for snorkelling. The bay has no sandy beach but a sea water pool, a restaurant and a bar. You can arrive by boat, drop anchor and a motor launch will bring you onshore.
The Gran Folies beach club, situated right here, is a good spot to devote a day, employ a sun lounger and book a table for lunch. Tucked round the corner from Port d’Andratx, Cala Llamp Bay has 1 of the most beautiful views in Mallorca. The Tramuntana mountains develop higher cliffs all about, forming a crescent bay with calm, beautifully clear water. It is a good spot to swim and snorkel in the beautiful waters and discover the rock pools. The region is about 100 metres lengthy and 20 metres deep, and there are no facilities other than these at the beach club.
This modest sheltered beach has sparkling clean water and soft golden sand, and is 1 of the a lot more eye-catching beaches on the coastline to the southwest of Palma. It is not a incredibly massive beach, so I advocate arriving early to stake your claim to a patch of this paradise. You can employ sun loungers and parasols on the sands or chill out at 1 of the two excellent beach clubs you will obtain there, Virtual Club and Las Terrazas.
Illetas is a modest upmarket resort nine kilometres to the south-west of Palma. The beach is a lot more sheltered than the massive stretch of sand that tends to make up the beach in front of the cathedral, in Palma itself, creating this 1 of the nicest beaches in the Bay of Palma. The beach is not that large, with a length of about 100 metres and about 50 metres deep. Sun beds and parasols are obtainable to employ, and there are toilets, ramps for the disabled and lifeguards on duty. It is a well-known beach with yachts as it boasts a sheltered bay. There are also lots of water sports obtainable to indulge in.
