As another summer season if fast approaching, you are probably on the lookout for the best holiday you can get. With so many amazing destinations to choose from, it would be quite an understatement to say you are spoiled for choice. If you have set your heart on a holiday full of surf and sand, Majorca is the destination for you. With last minute fights available from Dublin, you can be there in no time, and enjoy the glorious sun and some of the most stunning beaches in the world.
Here is a very short list of the top 7 beaches you can check out.
Cala Millor is a delight of white sand and blue waves. It is an amazing destination for families, as its waters are shallow enough for youngsters to frolic in. Today it has become the largest resort on the island, and it has a wide range of bars and restaurants you can enjoy. There are also boat tours you can sign up for, and head out to explore the surrounding beaches as well.
Cala Mesquida is located near Capdepera, from which you can easily catch a bus to the beach. It is actually a part of a natural cove, only 350 meters long and 130 meters wide, protected by sand dunes and rocks. Snug and cozy, it is quite popular among the surfing crowd. Even if you are not a fan of the board, you will certainly enjoy the pristine waters, and swimming the length of the beach.
Playa de Muro
A beach on the north side of the island, the Playa de Muro is yet another example of a white sandy haven. It is located between two resors, the Alcudia and the Can Picafort, near the S’Albufera. It is also shallow, so you will have to swim out quite a distance to get to the deep, which is why this beach is also a family-friendly affair. If you are into water spots, you will also be able to go paragliding and jet skiing here.
Port de Pollença
Another northern beach, the Port de Pollença is a golden coast with calm waters, protected from the winds. It also provides for some stunning views at the Tramuntana in the background. You can also explore the marina and the variety of restaurants it offers, and enjoy the seafood and the laid-back atmosphere.
The Cala Deià is also rather tiny, but is home to some of the best waters on Majorca. It is surrounded by cliffs, giving it the feel of a private paradise. It was also often visited by Robert Graves, while he lived in the vicinity. This is the perfect place to try snorkeling, as you will rarely find a sea that is clearer and more accommodating. Make sure to also try some of the local wine in one of the restaurants.
The Cala Torta also boasts white sand and turquoise waters to enjoy. It is however rather windy, so you might be better of choosing to surf than to lie down in the sun. Don’t be surprised by the higher prices at the bars – the food is excellent, and tables are sparse.
A quiet resort great for a family vacation, it is snugly located in its own bay. The beach is marked by a Blue Flag, and boasts golden sand and a few bars. You can also rent a pedal boat or go diving. You can also sign up for lessons in surfing and sailing.
You may have already gathered from all of the above that what the beaches of Majorca are famous for is the sand and the turquoise sea. We could go on and on about how clear the waters are and how soft the sand is, or how great the surfing conditions are, but we’d much rather you experience them for yourself. Whether you decide to travel to the island at the height of the tourist season, or wait for things to die down a bit, you will never be wrong to give Majorca a chance. You will certainly return home filled with the sun and well-rested, dreaming in white and blue.
