Mallorca is the jewel of the Balearics, with it’s laid-back lifestyle, family friendly activities and fun for all. If you are looking to book the perfect beach holiday, then let us guide you through the best beaches in Mallorca.
Calla Deià, one of the best beaches in Mallorca for effortless cool
Calla Deià is famous primarily for being one of the most sophisticated beaches in Mallorca. The island rivals Ibiza in terms of class. This is evident in this small, rocky but very chic beach. The beach itself is surrounded by cliffs, which give it a certain degree of privacy. The only downside is that the beach is rocky rather than sandy. However, due to this fact, you may find that the seafront is much more populated with locals rather than tourists. So, if you want to escape the hustle and bustle of the main tourist beaches, Calla Deià is a good option. Nearby, there is also a rather picturesque watchtower which overlooks the coast. From here, you can see some fantastic views of the mainland. Watersports are also on offer here, and snorkelling comes highly recommended. This is due to the crystal clear water, which allows you to see plenty of marine life.
Playa De Muro, one of the most accessible beaches in Mallorca
If you are travelling with children, Playa de Muro is one of the most family friendly beaches in Mallorca. It is also fully accessible for people with wheelchairs. This is one of the beach’s main attractions, as some other Mallorcan beaches are notoriously difficult to access. This beach is relatively close to a stretch of hotels, which can mean that it gets a little crowded in high season. However, the shade offered by the trees which also line the beach does give the shore a relative degree of privacy. This beach is also one of the best equipped beaches in Mallorca. There are plenty of bars, restaurants and cafes. There are also plenty of stores renting equipment for snorkelling, kiting or hiring pedalos. The beach is also conveniently located next to the Albufera nature reserve. From here, you can cool off in the shade and enjoy a picnic before heading back to the beach.
This beach is still relatively unknown amongst tourists. Therefore, it is relaxed and without some of the busyness of other Mallorcan beaches. It is one of the most idyllic beaches in Mallorca, thanks to it’s proximity to luscious pine trails. These are often popular with hikers, but if you prefer to relax, you will find that you can do that here too. The beach is sheltered by a rock in the ocean, named ‘the little island’. Due to this, you can almost get the sensation of being entirely secluded. The main advantage of this beach is the variety of restaurants that you can find close by. The seafood in this region is excellent and offers a great range of choices for all tastes. The beach is also conveniently located close to Alcudia. This is perfect if you want to escape the tourist traps for a while, without straying too far.
Last but not least, we have one of the prettiest beaches in Mallorca. Here the sand is powdery and the water is tropical. The beach is famous for it’s surfing, thanks to the wind that often buffets the inlet. Calla Torta is also one of the most popular beaches in Mallorca for snorkelling, thanks to it’s clear water. Again, this beach is quite fashionable and is equally popular amongst locals and tourists. It remains busy, even during quieter seasons. This is due not only to it’s beauty, but the quality of some of the restaurants close by. Chic but perfectly down to earth at the same time.
