Get your buckets and spades at the ready because we’re talking about beaches in Mallorca. First up is Alcudia. There’s an excellent mix of easy-to-access tourism and also authentic Mallorcan culture.
It’s in the north of the island. It’s one of the most popular resorts there so it can get very crowded. But the fact that it is so touristy means you’re never going to be wanting for food, facilities, showers…
Next up is Cala Millor, the largest and most popular beach on the east coast of Mallorca. It’s not all about the beach though. Restaurants and shops line the promenade and the streets surrounding it. There’s just loads to do there.
Just north of Cala Millor is our next beach, Cala Bona. The beaches here are small coves with manmade breakers. They’re mostly sandy but there are some stones here and there. This is a very busy resort, filled with all-inclusive package hotels, restaurants, bars, mini grocery stores… And things liven up even more at night time. Lots going on!
Camp de Mar has to come near the top of the list though, because of its exclusive flavour. The beach itself though is quite small, so you’ll probably be fighting for a space. And obviously the summer months can get really really busy but that’s probably true for every beach in Mallorca.
But the thing that sets Camp de Mar apart is this teeny tiny little island, just away from the beach. And you can only access it by a bridge. And this whole island is dedicated to the restaurant that sits on top of it. It’s called La Illeta. It’s really exclusive and I thought it would be quite expensive but it actually looks pretty reasonable. However, you do need to make sure you reserve a table because all of them are reserved. We managed to sneak in and get this one.
Next up, Palma. The island’s capital. I love Palma because of its context. The whole city of Palma is what’s winning here. It feels a little bit like Barcelona beach, in that it’s urban, and in fact it’s directly opposite the city centre. And then look at the view straight ahead. Palma Cathedral, what a beautiful silhouette.
Sixth is Cala d’Or, which actually means ‘the Golden Bay’. The Cala d’Or area has five small beaches and when we say small, we mean teeny tiny! It’s obviously a really beautiful beach, you can see how white and fine that sand is already. And you’ve got some bars and restaurants and shops by the look of it, right on the beach itself, so you don’t have to go anywhere. You don’t have to get dressed, you don’t have to do anything. You don’t have to put your shoes on! You can keep your bare feet. As long as you’ve got somewhere to keep your cash.
Lastly, and with good reason, is Santa Ponsa. First impressions: we’ve seen a McDonald’s, a Subway, Irish bars, Scottish bars. There’s music, people are out in quad bikes, there’s hire cars, there’s massages on the beach. It’s lively, there’s traffic everywhere, tourists everywhere. It’s crazy. However, this is the quieter scene compared to Magaluf and Palma Nova, which are its neighbours. It’s on the south west coast of the island, very 18 to 30s.
So there you have it, that’s seven beaches of Mallorca. Thanks for watching. Bye!
