- Cala Agulla
For those of you who like to stretch your photographer muscles whilst on holiday, you’ll find no better place to do it than on Cala Agulla beach. This picturesque spot of Mallorca is about 80km from Palma de Mallorca, and has a luscious backdrop of pine trees and mountains. With blue, crystal-clear waters, you can take in the sun as well as a few landscape shots.
- Cala Llombards
This stunning cove can be found on the southeast coast and is the ideal spot for young families. The long, thin strip of white sand has shallow waters for children to play in without fear of straying too far, and there’s even a tropical beach bar for you to cool off when you’re done building sand castles.
- Son Serra de Marina
Anyone who wants to while away the hours enjoying their favourite water sports should definitely head for the beach of Son Serra. This large sandy beach is littered with dunes where you can enjoy a horse-back ride, or instead, the sea and wind conditions are perfect for windsurfing, kite surfing and other activities.
- Cala Tuent
If you want your own tranquil slice of oasis, then head for the northwest coast to Cala Tuent. Getting there can be a little tricky, as it’s a drive down a rocky hillside away, but once there you’ll be greeted by crystal clear turquoise waters, perfect for snorkelling. Surrounded by pine trees, this enclosed, romantic cave is well worth the trek.
- Bahía de Alcudia
If you like somewhere with a little more hustle and bustle, then this beach certainly won’t disappoint. Perfect for families and large groups alike, the bay of Alcudia is Mallorca’s longest beach. It’s had a lot of investment, has been well developed, and has a whole range of resorts and hotels just a stone’s throw away, so you’re never too far from the action.
- Cala Millor
If you’re staying on the east coast, then the magnificent sandy stretch of beach between Cala Millor and Cala Bona is one of the best. With a promenade that follows the kilometre and a half of coastline, Cala Millor is perfect for those wanting an evening walk, a morning cycle, or if you just want to browse the many gift shops or stop off in a café for tapas.
