Beaches of Mallorca
Mallorca offers a broad variety of fantastic beaches
Mallorca is full of beautiful beaches with fine white sand. At least 65 of around 200 available beaches are completely unspoilt; some of these can be reached easily and others are hidden away and can only be accessed on foot or by boat. One of the advantages of being an island is that when the beaches on the northern coast of Mallorca will have bad weather when a northerly wind is blowing, the beaches on the southern coast of Mallorca will be fine.
Mallorcaresidencia has many properties such as apartments, houses and villas either directly or close by located to some of these popular beaches. We know very well that our clients appreciate sea front line properties with sea views and look for these properties constantly.
Below is a small selection of some beaches we can recommend.
Cala Mondrago has two sandy coves with crystal clear water. We recommend the larger cove after the first small one. It is backed by sand dunes and has a small beach bar for refreshments.
Directions: Drive to Santanyi and follow signs to the Parc Natural Mondrago and then Cala Mondrago.
Es Trenc is over 5km of white sandy beach backed by sand dunes. The water is turquoise and the beach has a real Caribbean feel. It does get busy in peak season with all the locals. Perfect for long beach walks. Suitable for nude sunbathing.
Directions: Drive through Campos following signs to Santanyi. Immediately after leaving Campos there is sign on your right to Es Trenc.
Platja Muro is a long sandy beach close to Alcudia. The hotel behind the beach might look ugly but the rest of the beach is nice and it is a great spot to watch kite surfers.
Directions: Drive south along Alcudia bay and the best place to stop is soon after the turning for the S´Albufera Parc Natural.
Cala de Deia
Cala de Deia is a nice and small beach with clear water and a nice bar sitting on the rocks facing the sea. Be aware of medusas, sometimes they like to socialize with swimmers.
Directions: Drive through Deia in the direction of Soller. After leaving Deia, watch out for a small turning on the left just past the Olivo Restaurant.
Es Dolc is within walking distance from the resort of Colonia Sant Jordi. Turquoise waters, white sand backed by dunes and a relaxed atmosphere waits you in this beach. You can explore other unspoilt beaches if you walk around.
Directions: Drive into Colonia Sant Jordi and you'll soon see a left turn for the Port. Park here and the beach is about a 10 minute walk round the coast.
Cala Torta, Estreta, Mitjana
These three beaches are quite remote, but be aware of the bumpy ride. They are some of the most natural beaches on the island and if you head for Cala Torta, there's a small beach bar open in peak season.
Directions: Drive out of Arta on the road to Capdepera and the beaches are signed on a small road on the left.
Sa Platgeta de Portals Vells
Sa Platgeta de Portals Vells is another nice beach with fine white sands. It has a sandy seabed and is almost flat, making it ideal for children. It has vegetation that extends down to the shore. It is also the nesting spot of a large number of sea birds. The beach features two bar/restaurants which have their own hatchery, and specialize in fresh seafood, rice dishes and fish stews.
Directions: Drive on road C-719 from Palma towards Magaluf and take the exit to Cap de Cala Figuera and Portals Vells.
Cala Fornells is a small, beautiful beach with coarse sand which can get crowded. It's 30 m long and 20 m wide and some terraces have been built on the rocks to enlarge the sunbathing area.
Directions: To get here, simply follow the signs from Peguera.
Cala Bendinat is a beautiful beach which is 50 m long and 20 m wide and which is surrounded by a pine grove.
Directions: From Palma take the highway towards Andratx and exit towards Bendinat. To get here from the Bendinat residential area, the street Calvo Sotelo leads straight to the beach.
