The east side of Majorca is full of beautiful beaches and little villages. As I’ve stayed in Sa Coma, I’ve written about the beaches from that point on.
From Sa Coma to the North:
Sa Coma is where I’ve stayed, and it is a beautiful beach with shallow waters. It’s hectic during the day, but at night it’s a bit quieter. I guess as is a purpose building resort area most people stay in their hotels enjoying the animation events.
Cala Millor, with almost 6 km of white sand and clear blue waters, it is a popular holiday resort with loads of shops and restaurants.
Sa Font de Sa Cala also known as Cala Capdepera, was one of my favourite beaches because it was less crowded and we could enjoy a peaceful day at the beach. A small road train links Cala Ratjada to Sa Font during the summer and the round trip costing little more than four euros.
Cala Agulla is a golden sand beach surrounded by pine forests. It is a busy beach, but you can go to the end of it at the left side and is more tranquil. Here is the tip: to get there, we drove by the road “Cami de Son Jaumell”, left our car and we’ve walked for 10 minutes in a not so tough road path.
Cala Moltó (or Es Guyó) is a rocky cove with a small sandy area and crystal clear water. It is located a few meters at the north of Cala Agulla. You have to find a path behind a building at Cala Agulla and walk for a few minutes. I didn’t go there, but I have seen some pictures and looks beautiful.
Cala Ratjada: the south beach is called Playa Son Moll, then is La Ferradura and a smaller cove called Cala Gat. All beaches are within walking distance. If you like shopping and souvenirs, Cala Ratjada has several nice stores and good restaurants. And it’s a lovely walking between them by the seaside footpath.
Cala Mesquida is a clean and clear beach with calm water but tends to get quite busy as the day goes by.
Cala Mitjana and Cala Estreta are beautiful beaches but to get there, you will need a car (or a boat). They are unspoilt, and there are not many people around which is a miracle in Majorca.
Cala Torta it’s a shame that the day I went the beach covered in algae, and it was not as beautiful as I’d seen some pictures. To get there is well signed but the last 2km is a road in awful condition hence the fact that it’s not too crowded. It is recommended to see the forecast before going to Cala Torta as the beach is very exposed to wind blowing unless it’s what you’re looking for.
Playa del Muro with almost 6km of a beautiful crystal clear beach. There is a lot of facilities like restaurants, bars, hotels, etc. Here you can choose if you want a quiet or a busy day as each part of the beach is less or more crowded. Just walk along, and you’ll find what you are looking for.
Es Comú is located between Playa de Muro and Can Picafort. It is quieter and beautiful as the neighbours.
Can Picafort is a lovely but very, very busy beach. It’s very “touristy”, and you can find loads of restaurants, shops, bars, pharmacies, etc.
Artá is the little capital of the region with its hilltop fortress of Santuari de Sant Salvador. It is a very peaceful small town.
Manacor is where Rafael Nadal is from. The town is the second largest in Majorca after Palma. It has a very industrial feeling. It’s quite famous for pearls. I’ve just passed by the town and didn’t stop.
