The Five Best Beach Destinations in Mallorca

As the largest of Spain’s Balearic Islands, Mallorca has all you could want from an idyllic beach getaway: a stunning coastline, dramatic cliffs, emerald seas, deserted coves and enough resorts, luxury hotels, restaurants and activities to keep even the most demanding holidaymaker happy. As home to some of Europe’s most beautiful beaches, choosing which one to make your base is no easy matter. To help you decide, we’ve rounded up the top five best beach destinations in Mallorca.

Cala Agulla in Cala Ratjada

Calla Agulla is a stunning stretch of golden sand situated on the Northeast section of the island. Surrounded on all sides by the Llevant National Park Mountains and lushly populated pine forests, Calla Agulla makes the perfect destination for holidaymakers looking for a little taste of paradise. Thanks to its status as a protected area, the beach and its surrounds are blissfully unspoiled. However, while you may not find much in the way of resorts or a busy nightlife, you will find a fair array of facilities, including sunbeds, toilets, a restaurant and bar. Thanks to accessible parking, clear, shallow waters and the ever-watchful gaze of a team of lifeguards, Calla Agulla is an ideal spot for holiday makers with young families.

Cala Mondrago in Santanyi

An unspoiled taste of heaven, Cala Mondrago is a large stretch of sandy beach on the south of the island. Snorkelers will love the uniquely patterned rock formations on display, while nature lovers will delight in the many birds to be spotted in the surrounding dunes and wetlands of the National Park. Geared towards both families and couples, Cala Mondrago benefits from the budget accommodation and entertainment on offer at a small nearby resort. Holidaymakers looking to visit the beach on a day trip will find it easily accessible by local bus from Cala d’or. During peak season, the beach can also be reached via the tourist train from Porto Pedro.

Es Trenc in Campos

Flanked by sand dunes and salt pans, Es Tranc is a stunning stretch of white sandy beach lapped by turquoise waters. Situated in a protected area, the beach is a wildlife haven, and winter beach goers may have to compete for space with the flocks of migrating birds that take up temporary residence in the surrounding vegetation. During peak season, the beach can become crowded (thanks in part to its proximity to Palma). However, holidaymakers in search of a little solitude can easily find it at the furthest reaches of the beach. Facilities are generous and include parasols, sunbeds, a restaurant and bar. For those looking to get up close and personal with nature, the beach even offers a nudist section.

Sa Calobra and Torrent de Pareis

Sa Calobra is a small pebble beach situated at the end of the dramatic Torrent de Pareis gorge. Famed throughout the island for its beauty, the area has been an inspiration to artists throughout the years, who have braved the long (but stunning) trek through the steep gorge to reach the hidden cove. Given the difficulties in accessing the beach, it can get surprisingly crowded, with hordes of visitors making the tricky voyage to visit one of the islands most beautiful spots. If you don’t mind competing for space with other day trippers, the pebble cove makes the perfect spot for a picnic. The beach has limited facilities, but nearby Sa Calobra offers a selection of bars, restaurants, toilets and showers.

Cala Deia

The attractive shingle beach of Cala Dela sits just below the charming village of Deia, a hot spot for the island’s visiting celebrities. The beach itself is small (about 70 meters long) and consists of small pebbles and larger rocks. Perch like a local on the surrounding cliffs and rocks to enjoy views of clear, turquoise waters, dramatic mountains and quaint stone houses. With 2 restaurants serving up fish, paella and other local delicacies, you certainly won’t go hungry, but don’t expect much in the way of facilities. Asides from toilets, showers, and the odd vendor selling homemade crafts and tapestries, the beach has little to offer the entertainment hungry. But if you’re looking for a relaxed, friendly vibe and a stunning location, you won’t be disappointed.
