The furthest beach and area from Cala D'or centre but only a 10 minute walk. There is a shopping centre here with the usual gift shops but also a chemist, car hire , a supermarket and many eating and drinking places. There is a huge childrens play area that only opens in the evenings.
The beach is reasonable size and there are beds and parasols to hire. The sea is gently shelving and safe to bathe in and the views out to sea full of interest as there are always passing boats.
It can however be crowded and space is a premium - we had to go early to get a space.
There is a very good cafe/snack bar on the beach and a small shop selling beach goods and groceries.
A small beach close to the town centre. Good safe bathing and a good beach with palm trees for shade at its start. The beach is rather small and can be crowded. There is a shop here selling food, drinks and beach goods and a cafe.
Playa Cala Esmeralda
One of Cala D'ors prettiest beaches situated between Cala Gran and Cala Ferrera, It is surrounded by hotels at its head but is open from the beach out to sea and has beautiful wooded edges.
There is a small open air cafe here and the land train stops here each hour.
Glass Bottom Boat
Starfish is a glass bottom catarmaran that operates along the south eastern Majorcan coast - we stayed in Cala D'or and the boat goes on daily visits to Porto Colom, Mondrango, Cala Figuera and to other various coves and beaches.
We took the Porto Colom trip - the boats are clean and fairly comfortable - they travel fast and because of this it is only possible to see the underwater world when the boats are static.
There are toilets on board and refreshments. On some trips it is possible to swim from the boat.
I am not sure a disbaled person could access the boats as I cannot see that there is wheelchair access.
Cala D'or has a large marina - a short downhill walk from the town centre or a short ride on the land train. There are some fantastic yachts and cruisers moored here and BBC presenter Chris Evans has two vessels here - Ginger 1 and Ginger 2.
There is only one clothing shop to browse around and this was closing when we visited - many restaurants and bars but veru much struggling for trade in September 2012.
The marina is one of the biggest I have ever seen - it is a long walk around to the Cala Egos side and there is no ferry across the marina.
However there is constant movement on the water and a great place to sit with a drink and watch the activity around the marina.
