    In the opposite side to Palma, protected by the mountains of Formentor, a large bay holds a long sandy beach.

    It's a good starting point to the visits to the wild northern coast, but, as long as my quick two visits and one bath allowed me to see, it is not in the top beaches of the island.

    Landscape is appealing, everything is near, and the bath was not bad, after all.

    Situated close to the famous caves of Drach and Helms, this is a beautiful beach, though usually very crowded.

    The beach is well sheltered, and circled by a road lined with restaurants and bars, which makes it a lively place, but not the ideal for a relaxing days.

    Most of the excursions to the caves visit this beach, and that means a lot of traffic.

    Which beach shall I choose? Peaceful and secure? Why not one of the many calas?

    We went to Cala D'Or - Very good. The hotel was excellently located, the beach was safe but sometimes overcrowded.

    The service was good and the animation one of the best we have seen. So, the week passed quickly, and we had to move, because the second part of holidays should follow the preferences of the young members of the team, in the lively Palma Nova.

    A small beach resort on the islands east coast close to Cala D'Or. A beautiful beach that can be crowded in the summer but a beautiful cove surrounded by trees.
    The town is very new and has very little character but is clean if rather clinical.

  • One of the best beaches on the island

    The beach is clean and spacious, and you can buy a beach umbrella for 6 euros which is much cheaper than paying for the ones provided on the beach. The sea is not too shallow and was very pleasant to swim in.

    Hit the beach!

    The beautiful beach in Palma Nova

    Majorca has some wonderful beaches. I haven't seen all of them, but the ones at Magaluf and Palma Nova are highly recommendable! The beaches at Majorca are clean and the water is crystal clear. Luxury yacths are anchored out in the sea and there is a lot of activity going on at the beach. On weekends the locals enjoy the beach as well so it gets quite crowded. Sunbeds and umbrellas can be rented and there are lots of water activities (such as banana boats, paragliding, waterskiing...etc) Bring your book and enjoy the lovely beaches at Majorca!

  • Jumping off rocks!

    by nickieworldtraveller Written Dec 1, 2004

    To be honest i was a little bit of a chicken so I wouldn't dare jump off the high rocks and it took me like a week to pluck up the courage to jump in the first place once i had done it for the first time it was a lot of fun.
    The only down side of it was when my face went uder the water the salt in the sea really stung my newly tanned face!

    Playa de Palma

    Ok, the beaches are beautiful, the sea is warm and good to swim. but as you can see, too crowded! Forget having the beach all to yourself, at least in the touristic areas. If you wish a more quiet swim you must go somewhere else on the island. I loved the sea so much that i couldn't care less for all the people around me.

    Another view of Palma Nova Beach

    Palma Nova beach

    As you can see from the picture the beach was almost deserted. October is obviously a good time to stay in Majorca.

    The weather was also excellent with 10 or 11 days out of our 14 being sunny and quite hot, reaching 30 C on most days.

    Beach at Palma Nova

    Beach at Palma Nova

    We stayed in Arenal and although we did not particularly like the resort the beach was very clean and beautiful. However, we did have a trip to Palma Nova and the beach there was wonderful as well.

    Palma Nova has a reputation during the summer months of being perhaps a little on the wild side but in early October it was very quiet and quite lovely.

    Beautiful waters.

    fantastic coastline

    Majorca has a beautiful rugged coastline with clear seas and nice little sandy coves. Sadly many of these are now privately owned by some hotel resort, but occasionally you can come across a little gem.

    Majorcas rugged coastline

    Majorca has a beautiful rugged coastline with clear seas and nice little sandy coves. Many of these coves are now private resorts, but every now and then you can come across a little gem! The coastline here is also a great spot for bird watching.

    Es Trenc

    Es Trenc

    Es Trenc is one of the most beautiful beaches of the island and even in the summer you can find some less crowded places....

    There is a narrow road leading to a huge parking which costs 5€ for the day. ANother way to get there is by foot from Colònia de Sant Jordi, the next seaside resort.

    Many yachts and sailing boats areanchoring in the bay too....

    The beach is really nice, but I found the water here very salty. I was able to stay on top without swimming. like in the dead sea... Maybe because the salines are nearby I don´t know!

    Bay of Alcúdia

    by Bigs Updated Aug 13, 2003
    The Bay of Alc��dia seen from the Eremita de Betlem

    This huge bay is mainly surrounded with huge hotel blocks. But you can also find some less frequented sections on this wonderful sandy beach. Some pines are still there and spending some shade, which is very nice so you don´t need an umbrella :))) Well ok the pine tree needles sometimes prick you........
