Cala Agulla

 

A beautiful beach surrounded by pine trees and mountains, situated in the municipality of Capdepera, about 80 kilometres from Palma. The water here is sparklingly clean and appears wonderfully light blue, making it the perfect place for swimming and to practise marine sports. Well-connected by pedestrian paths to Cala Mesquida, and along the way you pass neighbouring Cala Moltó, frequented by naturists. Snack bar and a pay-to-park area. Take the Manacor road to Capdepera and then head for Cala Rajada.

 

Portals Vells

This fine sandy beach is particularly popular with locals and families. In the sandy bays with turquoise water there are numerous caves to explore. There is a kiosk offering snacks, a small restaurant, and sanitary facilities. Many big yachts visit this picturesque bay in summer. Only limited parking available.

 

Formentor

This lovely narrow beach, on the Formentor peninsula, is lined with pine trees. You’re always 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 here by boat from Puerto Pollensa or by car (stopping along the peninsula road to admire some spectacular scenery).

 

Illetas

 

Son Serra de Marina

This extensive virgin sandy beach is backed by dunes and has sweeping views around the Bay of Alcúdia. Naturists will find a quiet spot to soak up the sun, and fans of water sports will benefit from sea and wind conditions that are often perfect for kite surfing and windsurfing. In cooler weather it’s a great place to walk (around to Colonia Sant Pere) or to ride a horse among the dunes. Although there are no beach services, El Sol Sunshine Bar offers food, drinks and great seaside vibes.

 

Cala Llamp

The water in the rocky Cala Llamp is crystal clear and thus perfect for snorkelling. The bay has no sandy beach but a sea water pool, a restaurant and a bar. Usually, there is enough parking space available. Not suitable for small children.
