Mallorca Beaches

Mallorca has some fabulous beaches - some are quiet and a bit of a drive to get to, others very easily accessed and busier. Remember to take sun tan lotion, water perhaps an umbrella for shade, buckets and spades for the kids (and Dad) and a good book! Over the years we have been visiting these beaches we have found them to be quiet until around mid-day to 1pm – so the trick is to get there early!

 

Playa de Formentor

Formentor is a beautiful stretch of beach about a 15 minute drive from Puerto Pollensa along the 2210 road which winds its way out to the Cap de Formentor. The car park costs 8€, but if you get there early there is plenty of parking along the roadside. Alternatively the beach is served by a number of Ferries that leave Puerto Pollensa at 11am, arriving at the beach at mid-day. There are two beaches split by the landing stage and restaurant. The right hand side as you look out to sea is always quieter. If you arrive early you virtually have the beach to yourself all morning. Good sandy beach with gentler shelving seabed for shallow swimming. Perfect for families. Café, sun loungers, pedalos, umbrellas available for hire.


Puerto Pollensa

A great swath of sand stretching from the Marina right down to Alcudia. The best ‘sand’ is around Puerto Pollensa, but it does get busy. Do what the locals do and spend a relaxing evening soaking up the last of the day’s sun on an empty beach! Gently shelving seabed perfect for children swimming, lots of trampolines, cafes, sunbeds, pedalos, boats for hire. As you move further down the beach towards Alcudia the beach does become a little windswept and a lot quieter. This is the home of kite surfing and windsurfing in Pollensa and there are a number of schools that will introduce the thrills of kite or windsurfing to you or simply just hire the equipment to you.

Cala Es Trenc

Es Trenc is located in the southern part of Mallorca between the very small town Ses Covetes and the larger holiday resort Colonia Sant Jordi. Es Trenc is one of the most famous beaches in Mallorca and the last large natural beach without any development. The beach is now located in a national park, so hopefully no hotels or the like will be built close to the beach in the future.

Port de Soller

A great day out for the whole family (especially Dads and Granddads!) Take the old train from Palma into Soller, then the tram from Soller to the Port – a real nostalgic railway day! The beach is wide and does get busy but there always seems plenty of room, lots of bars, cafes and so on. Sandy good swimming in and out of moored boats – though they have boat free swimming areas. Then the tram and train back at the end of the day!

Cala Agulla

Cala Agulla is a beautiful, small-scale resort beach located a stone’s throw from the charming, medieval town of Capdepera, in the northeast of the island. It is surrounded by the wild beauty of sand dunes, pine trees, desert plants, and low lying rocky areas that form the Llevant Peninsula Natural Park. Cala Agulla offers something for everyone; A large beach surrounded by stunning landscapes and minimal development keeps it relatively low-key, yet there are plenty of water sports and facilities to reassure or satisfy those who like civilisation nearby. Cala Agulla sits adjacent to the larger, popular beach resort of Cala Rajada.

Cala Mondrago

Cala Mondrago features in many a tourist brochure of Mallorca. It is a stunning beach just outside Satanyi – around 45 minutes to an hours drive from Pollensa on the south east coast. It is well worth the drive. The car park is free and the beach is around a 10 minute walk down the cart track. There is a small café, sun loungers and umbrellas available for hire. Pedalos are also available. We’d suggest an early start to make the most of the beach before it fills up.
