Majorca is one of the most popular places to visit for British tourists. Why? Because the sun is always shining, there are amazing things to see and do, and you can spend hours relaxing on the beach.
This island’s beaches are probably its biggest draw for tourists, but which are the best beaches? Here are our top five:
1. Cala Formentor Beach, Pollença
Located in Pollença, this beach is just over half a mile long and is incredibly narrow. While it might not be the biggest beach in Majorca, it’s certainly one of the most popular. With its crystal clear waters and fine, soft white sand, you’re sure to feel as though you’re in paradise. The beach is backed by a forest of pine trees and you can go for a dip in the ocean before returning to your spot on the sand.
2. Cala Deià Beach, Soller
This beach is actually a cove, which makes it all the more special. Secluded and seemingly secret, Cala Deià Beach is something truly special. The sapphire-coloured sea is perfect for snorkelling and while the beach is covered with pebbles, it’s still a stunning place to be.
3. Playa de Muro, Alcudia
This beach is incredibly family friendly thanks to its clear, shallow waters. The fact that there’s almost 5 miles of beach to play on is also a big benefit, and kids and adults alike will love taking part in fun beach games together. You can also enjoy water sports, or you could take a walk along one of the many paths leading into the Albufera Nature Reserve if you fancy a break from the beach.
4. Cala Mondrago, Santanyi
Cala Mondrago Beach is located within the much larger Mondrago National Park, which is famous for its sheer cliffs, rolling hills and stunning coastlines. The beach is one of the best examples of this, with its stretch of fine white sand and an incredible underwater world that can be uncovered when snorkelling in the turquoise-coloured ocean.
5. Cala Millor Beach, Cala Millor
Cala Millor Beach is just off the promenade and is backed by cafes, restaurants and shops, meaning you’re never far from the town centre. It’s often considered to be one of the best beaches in Majorca despite its small size. It’s just half a mile deep and almost a mile long, but there’s more than enough to do there. Go swimming, surfing or jet-skiing, or simply relax on the beach and watch the world go by.
