Discover the most beautiful corners of the island and find out where in Mallorca you can best lie undisturbed in the sun or immerse yourself in the turquoise blue water? You can find out all of this in my beach guide to your favorite island!
Where are the most beautiful bays and which beaches are the locals’ favorites? I took a look around the popular Balearic island and stretched my feelers beyond the borders of the party metropolis of Palma. As soon as you have left the tourist stronghold behind you, you will notice that it is much quieter on the beaches and in the winding streets. Let’s go to the most beautiful beaches in Mallorca !
One of the most famous stretches of beach in the southern part of the island is definitely Es Trenc . You can get a parking space at the paid parking space for € 6 per day. The beach has a separate nudist area and you can rent loungers if necessary.
As the stretch of beach stretches for a generous six kilometers, you are guaranteed to find a berth in every season! With its fine white sand , the impressive dune landscape and the light turquoise water, Es Trenc is a real highlight among the beaches. Here you can relax like in paradise – and if you get bored of sunbathing, just jump into the crystal clear water to cool off.
Caló des Moro
A unique natural beach in a beautiful, rocky environment attracts mainly locals to the area in the south of Mallorca. Caló des Moro is not exactly easy to reach and offers neither gastronomy nor lifeguards. However, the crystal clear water and the beautiful location in the middle of the Mallorcan cliffs easily make up for these disadvantages!
Cala en Tugores
You can relax wonderfully here on the 200 meter long sandy beach! According to aparentingblog, the beach is a bit remote and therefore not as busy as the others. The beach of Cala en Tugores is almost untouched in an impressive setting. In order to be able to enjoy the breathtaking view of the U-shaped bay, you first have to undertake a fairly decent hike. From Colonia de Sant Jordi you can walk a six-kilometer route past idyllic beaches such as Es Dolc or Es Carbo to the bathing beach, which is mainly used by locals.
Cala Pi in the southwest of the island
The romantic bay in the southwest of Mallorca is located directly at the town of the same name, Cala Pi, and stretches like a fjord into the sea. The beach is embedded in overgrown rock walls and attracts many visitors during the high season, who especially appreciate the Mediterranean flair of the bay.
There are four different bays right next to each other south of Magaluf. The so-called “three-finger bay” invites you to swim, snorkel or even go jet skiing. Among the neighboring bays is the Platja de Portals Vellsas the largest and most family-friendly beach. About three kilometers away and a very bumpy road lie between the next town Magaluf and the Three Finger Bay. The effort is definitely worth it! One of the neighboring bays of Portals Vells is the infamous El Mago beach, which was named after the film of the same name. The classic was filmed here in 1967, starring Anthony Quinn, Michael Caine and Candice Bergen. If you want to get a place here, you have to get up particularly early, because the small bay is already full by lunchtime. If you like, you can stop by for a cocktail in the beach bar Playa El Mago. A little tip from me: don’t be frightened,
You can also escape from mass tourism in Cala Llombards . With an atmospheric ambience you can spend your day here in the sun and you are in good hands for a drink or two in the beach bar. Many locals get lost here who appreciate the clean water in the shallow bathing bay and, above all, do not want to spend the morning in the blazing sun. The small bay is framed by flat rocks, which can also serve as places of relaxation and retreat.
Mondragó Natural Park
There are several accesses to the Mondragó National Park – one way or another, however, you end up at two of the most beautiful bays on the whole island. It goes from a parking lot between pine trees and all sorts of other plants down to the beautiful beach. The two bays are connected by a short footpath on the cliffs, where you can enjoy fantastic views of the turquoise water. If you like it a little quieter, then make yourself comfortable in the bay of Cala S’Amarador . If you like a little more hustle and bustle and access to a slightly larger restaurant, then Cala Mondragó is just right for you. It is best to use a GPS, because the narrow paths to the parking lots are pretty tricky.
Magical beaches in the north of Mallorca
Cala Pi de la Posada
Again, there is a risk of confusion: We are talking about the beach in the north of the island, halfway to Cap de Formentor, not the bay in the southwest of Mallorca. The Cala Pi is one of the most beautiful beaches on the island and impresses with its great location, nestled in the bay of Pollenca. Surrounded by shady pine groves, it is wonderful to relax and the white sandy beach is very popular with tourists. Caribbean flair is included here!
This is one of the many small but very beautiful bays in the north of the island. But don’t get confused, because the bay is often confused with the small fishing village in the south of the island, which also bears the beautiful name of Cala Figuera . Away from the mass tourism of the Ballermann you can enjoy a breathtaking panoramic view of the shallow waves in the bay and relax on the fine and clean sand. Despite everything, it can get a bit crowded around lunchtime. So plan well in advance and be on your way in the morning.
