On my previous post, I’ve described a little bit about the East beaches in Majorca, with a focus on the north ones (from Sa Coma). Today, let’s talk about the ones in the south from Sa Coma.
From Sa Coma to the South:
S’illot is near Sa Coma and it has a lovely promenade lined with palm trees, and with a fair selection of bars, restaurants, cafes and shops.
Porto Cristo was a traditional fishing village. There are a few restaurants and little shops around.
Cala Romantica is a very charming beach with turquoise water and golden sand. Just be careful as the beach is signposted on the main road as Cala Romantica but as you approach, the sign changes to official name S’Estany d’en Mas.
Hot tip: where you are there, on your left side, there is a path, and from there you’ll have fantastic views like this one in the picture.
Cala Anguila is near Cala Romantica, and it’s a beautiful little beach with white sand and turquoise water.
Cala Mandia is also near Cala Romantica and Cala Anguilla and it is a little resort beach with lovely views. It is less known compared with its neighbours.
Cala Varques (or Cala Barques) since it is a 45-60 minutes walk I didn’t go there. It was very hot and, I was not up to the challenge. Everybody says is a fantastic beach. Here is some information about it: the water is crystal clear, and the beach is sheltered from the wind. There are no services. The beaches called Cala Clara and Cala Molins are calm and transparent waters, attracting many divers.
Cales de Mallorca comprise three beautiful beaches: Cala Antena, Cala Domingos Gran and Cala Domingos Petit. The underwater caves are an international attraction for divers. I’ve been to the Cala Domingos Gran and there were so many people that we couldn’t find a place to lay down.
Cala Sa Nau is a tiny beach with turquoise waters and ideal for swimming or diving. It has a bar and toilets.
Cala Serena is a small sandy bay with rocky edges that keep the water calm. I did not visit this beach because it was too busy and we couldn’t find a place to park our car.
Cala Esmeralda, we arrived there pretty early and it was calm and not too crowded. The beach is beautiful with an incredible sea colour and, the green trees around make it more attractive.
Cala d’Or is a lovely town and I wish I stayed there. The town centre has some roads where cars are not allowed, and you can walk and enjoy the shops and restaurants around. The main beach is called Cala Gran, and is a rather small beach and again, overcrowded.
Cuevas del Drach is one of the most famous tourist attractions on the island. Although it is a very tourist attraction, it is also lovely. We didn’t go there as we were staying quite far away and we wanted to make the most of our trip to that area, going to the beaches.
My next post will be about the beaches of South and North. And soon I’ll write about some good restaurants on the island.
