CALAS OF MALLORCA

Cala Figuera

Cala Figuera is located in the municipality of Santanyí, southeast of Mallorca, around 50 minutes of driving from the city center.

 

The town of Cala Figuera is famous for its fishing harbor at the end of a Fjord-like cove which holds some of the most traditional buildings in the whole of Mallorca, as well as a number of villas and mansions overlooking the scenic harbor entrance.

 

The Harbor area is great for a pleasant walk with stunning scenery of fisherman's boats and houses combined with the view of amazing cliffs.

Cala Figuera offers no tourist beaches or easily accessible swimming areas, as a result of which it remains largely untouched by mass tourism.

 

 

Cala Llombards

Cala Llombards is also located in the municipality of Santanyí in the southeast of Mallorca, 

 

This bright and sandy beach, with perfectly clear water, offers the perfect conditions for snorkeling. 

 

With a width of 150 meters and rather shallow water, this Cala is very suitable for kids and has plenty of room to play, particularly in the back of the beach.

 

There is a nice walking trail along the coast to Cala Santanyí. On the way, you will enjoy some of Mallorca's finest views and see Es Pontas (a big rock with the natural shape of a bridge). 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cala Bona

Cala Bona, located on the east coast in the municipality of Son Servera is a perfect mix of rocky/sandy beach.

 

Following the arrival of tourism, the area began to grow rapidly with many hotels, restaurants and homes. Along with the neighboring village of Cala Millor, Cala Bona grew from the 60s onwards into a significant holiday resort.

 

This area is also known for Mallorca's biggest limestone caves, only minutes away with a car or a bus and a mini-train that connects Cala Millor, Cala Bona and Costa dels Pins.

 

For those who prefer a more adventuristic way of exploring, we suggest going on a horseback ride. 

 

 

 

 

Cala Agulla

This delightful sandy beach with gorgeous views is located in the Artá municipality north of the holiday town of Cala Ratjada, making it one of the easternmost beaches on Mallorca.

 

Right between forests and mountains, with over 500 meters in length, Cala Agulla has the longest beach on the east coast.

 

The nature of the sand here makes it ideal for beach sports such as volleyball and the beach itself is one of the cleanest, eco-friendly beaches in Mallorca. 

 

In addition to beach sports, there is a variety of fun water-based activities like paddleboards, kayaks, banana boats... 

 

 

 

 

Cala Fornells

Located in the district of Calvià in the southwest of Mallorca,  alternating between sand and the rocks that are ideal for jumping into the water.

 

Overhanging pine trees create areas of natural shade which adds to the overall charm of the cove.

 

The water is clear and it's perfect for snorkeling around the rocks where you will see plenty of different fish. 

 

Being in a semi-urban area, this cala is a great choice for a break of exploring its surroundings.
