Beaches & at the Coast, Majorca Island
A long crescent of white sand lapped by cobalt blue and emerald green coloured water, some beaches are ideal for sailing, sunbathing and having fun.
Cala Mondrago, with its two magnificent sandy beaches set amongst pine groves. This pair of beaches are linked by a concrete path. Really nice for swiming and snorkeling with an interesting coves.
Torrent de Pareis, Escorca
On calm days this is a spectacular beach - a strip of pebbly sand protected by two vast walls of rock. On stormy days the beach is inundated by the sea crashing through the gorge. Take the winding, 14-kilometre road down to
Port de sa Calobra, then walk through the foot-tunnel to reach the area.
Es Trenc, Campos
Es Trenc's three and a half kilometres of sandy beach and surrounding woodlands are one of the best-preserved areas
of Mallorca - mainly thanks to a long struggle on the part of ecological groups to have it protected by law. Its fine white sand can get busy at weekends, especially near to the carpark. The ends of the beach, however,
are usually deserted.
Platja de Formentor/Cala Pi de la Posada, Pollenca
A kilometre of paradise-like sandy beach fringed with virgin pinewoods. Around the hotel is a hunting ground for celebrity spotters, but the rest of the area is quiet and wonderfully un-commercialised. Can be reached either by road, along the Formentor peninsula, or by ferry - which runs every hour - from Port de Pollenca.
Part of a much larger area of clean shoreline, Cala Pi is small but especially pleasant.
A visit worths not only because of the highly choppy water and about 350 ms wide and more than 250 ms of deep, bright sandy beach, but, first of all, because of the unique, wildly romantic landscape, and the unique shifting sand dunes. With more stormy weather the waves can be quite high here, but a lifeguard pays attention. Good place for aquatic sports like surfing or diving.
Favorite thing: The magnificent, rugged north west coast alludes to some of the most charming and scenic towns - Deya and Valldemossa. Surrounded by exuberant greenery and scoured rocks, these entrancing locations offer some of the most enchanting sea views, dotted with exclusive properties teetering on hillsides. Spectacular sunsets soothe tortured mountain roads, discouraging tourist traffic and create wondrous peaceful hideaways, firm favourites with the rich and famous.
Majorca is trully a one off, surrounded by hidden beauty you just want to explore even further as there is so much to see and do. Unfortunately we were only there for a week and I never did half of what i wanted to do, so I'm planing on going back next yaer so Watch This Space!
Fondest memory: Its Natural beauty still amazes me, just look at the photos and see for yourself, need I say more ?
Cala Major is a resort in the south west of Majorca; some km far from Palma. It has everything you need. There you can find lots of shops and a good choice of restaurants and cafes. This resort has a little beach.
In case you find the beach at Cala Major too crowdy you can head to the next resort; Cala Bona. There you find a smaller nice beach. This is probably less frequented than the previous one.
We did enjoy our holiday in Majorca. We had beautiful weather, met some lovely people and had a really good time.
I particularly enjoyed visiting Palma and Pollenca and seeing the interior of the island. The evenings were also very pleasant and warm, not to mention the glorious sunsets.
Fondest memory: The weather was wonderful considering it was October and I just loved the beaches and swimming in the sea.
Fondest memory: I took this picture somewhere on the way to Alcudia. Obviously this a good place for wind surfing; these two guys weren't the only ones there.
