Exploring Cala San Vicente…
Take a stroll down the high street
Cala San Vicente may be small, but its high street is as much worth a visit as its beaches. Especially because it also doubles as an outdoor art gallery. A great collection of antique bicycles and cars adorns the street, courtesy of the owner of the adjacent Hotel la Moraleja. It’s an interesting little spot, definitely worth stopping on your way to the beach or on a walk before dinner.
Snorkel in Cala Barques
Cala San Vicente’s main beach is actually more of a cove. Surrounded by rugged hills, the little ones may find the stony waters a little off-putting. But it’s great for those with a sense of adventure and a love of marine life. Snorkel here and you’ll see a fair share of exotic fish, as well as some interesting rock formations. Banana boats are also available for hire.
Visit Cala Clara and Cala Molins
Two coves separated by a jutting piece of land, Cala Clara and Cala Molins are truly stunning. White sand, azure waters and surrounding wildlife give them a paradisiac feel. Both coves are frequented by locals enjoying the peaceful setting – so you know they’re a good find.
Play mini golf
Cala San Vicente’s mini golf course is a great activity for the whole family to enjoy. After a day sunbathing and playing on the beach, you can relax and have a bit of good old-fashioned family fun. They’ve recently added Wi-Fi, so you can let everybody at home know who got the most holes in ones.
Majorcan food, like all Mediterranean cuisine, is all about fresh produce and simplicity. But there are definitely some regional specialities that set it apart from the rest of the Mediterranean, and even the rest of Spain. Local olives, almonds, walnuts, Ramallet tomatoes and spiced cured meats will find their way into most menus. But it’s not all about the savoury with the Majorcans, they also love their sweets. Ensaimadas and puddings are just some of the sweet treats available. Of course, Spanish tapas and dishes like paella are also a must try.
