Beaches of Mallorca. Small guide to choose the right one.

Among the reasons that encourage many people to choose Mallorca as a tourist destination every year, are its beaches and its Mediterranean climate.

Let’s discover together which the beaches of Mallorca are, how they are divided and what their characteristics are. Because the island offers visitors beaches for every need.

Certainly, the beaches of Mallorca are characterized by an exuberant vegetation of plants and flowers, due to their position in the Mediterranean, but the island offers beaches for all types of vacations.

If you travel with small children, you can choose between beaches that go from Colonia Sant Jordi, through Can Pastilla, El Arenal and Es Trenc, characterized by its fine sand.

If you like adventure and want to find coves and fishing villages, we recommend the east coast: Cala Figuera, Cala d’Or, Porto Colom, Porto Cristo, Sa Coma, Cala Millor, Canyamel and Cala Ratjada. These are just some of the possible beaches located east of Mallorca that deserve to be visited.

Lovers of more mountainous and wild landscapes can choose a place on the northwest coast, the so-called Sierra de Tramuntana – an UNESCO -recognized heritage that goes from Andratx to Formentor, in Pollença.

This area offers a combination of sea and mountains with a unique charm that satisfies even the most demanding travelers. Sa Calobra is worth a visit, a little hidden gem nestled at the foot of the mountain.

Here you’ll feel you’re in a real, earthly paradise, where the passage of man is perceived subtly and respectfully.

You will cross the mountain through a spectacular road, with its famous curve called “nudo de corbata” (tie knot). Further to the north of the island, we’ll find the Bay of Pollença and the Bay of Alcudia, surrounded by a landscape that leaves you breathless. The sunset from here, with backlit mountains, is something unique.
