Cala Mandia Holidays

See Majorca’s sleepy side

Head south from Porto Cristo and you’ll find yourself in the sleepy surroundings of Cala Mandia – a petite resort that’s all about the beach. And it’s easy to see why. A deep crescent of white, powdery-soft sand coupled with turquoise Mediterranean waters make for the perfect holiday combo. 

Venture beyond the beach, though, and you’ll find there’s plenty ‘round these parts to keep you busy. Head to nearby Porto Cristo and you can spend your days exploring underground caves, rambling through characterful streets, and eating fresh seafood courtesy of the fishing boats that are a mainstay in the harbour. Head inland to the city of Manacor, meanwhile, and you can expect local buzzy markets, charming little churches, and plenty of history. 

 

 

Your Cala Mandia questions, answered

Holidays here are on the more subdued side, but it’s still a good shout for a family getaway. The beach is kid-friendly, with a lifeguard on duty during the summer months, and Porto Cristo is an easy drive or bus ride away, if you fancy a day trip or excursion. 
It’s less than half an hour on the bus, or about a 15-minute drive. 
Totally up to you. If you love exploring the countryside and taking day trips here, there, and everywhere, then it’ll definitely come in handy to have your own set of wheels. If you’re just planning on heading to nearby towns like Porto Cristo and Manacor, there are regular buses. And of course, holing up in the hotel with a good book and a cocktail is always an option, too. 
This stretch of coastline is popular for snorkelling and boat trips, while for the likes of kayaking and canoeing, Porto Cristo has a smattering of water sports centres.
