No trip to the eastern coast of Majorca is complete without visiting Cala Millor. The biggest resort in the region, this town is one of the island’s original tourist destinations and certainly makes for a memorable holiday. Cala Millor is home to one of Majorca’s best beaches, as well as boasting an impressive nightlife scene. Whether you’re looking to soak up the sun in the day or party the night away, Cala Millor remains a hugely versatile destination.
Surrounded mostly by quiet family resorts, Cala Millor is the place to be if you’re look-ing for something more than the usual hotel entertainment. With a large array of nightclubs and bars, the fun doesn’t stop when the sun goes down. Yet despite the town’s bar sce-ne, Cala Millor has retained its family-friendly appeal. Spanning an impressive 6km, Cala Millor is a seemingly endless source of entertainment. Connected to its coastal neighbours by a beautiful pedestrian promenade, exploring the island’s coast has never been easier.
If you’re looking to escape the buzz of Cala Millor, then this smaller resort is the per-fect getaway. Although you won’t find any water sports on this 500m beach, you will find a place to have a little holiday from your holiday! Walking to Cala Bona is a treat in itself, with the path from Cala Millor engraved with fish to help guide the way.
Neighbouring Sa Coma is easily reached by foot, but for a little bit of fun, you can ride the Mini Train up and down the coast. Featuring everything from a Blue Flag beach to its very own zoo, Sa Coma always has somewhere to explore.
Costa de Los Pinos
Leave the high-rise hotels behind and marvel at the private villas of Costa de Los Pinos. Situat-ed just at the end of Cala Millor’s bay, you’ll hardly believe that you’re only a ten-minute drive away. Combining bright blue waters with luscious greenery, the beach may be small, but you’ll certainly have a unique Majorcan experience.
Exploring Cala Millor…
Son Servera Market
The easiest way to experience authentic Majorcan life is to visit a market. Every Friday in Son Servera, the locals head to the weekly market. If you’re looking to pick up some interesting souvenirs, the handcrafted leather and lace items on offer are sure to make a change from the usual keychains and magnets. Special busses are able to take you there, but it’s recom-mended to arrive in the morning if you want to get the best deals.
Glass Bottom Boat Trips
If you want to see the most of the island, a glass bottom boat trip is the best way. Starting at multiple on points on the island, you can choose between short journeys to those spanning the whole day. The boats often stop, allowing you to visit a variety of caves and beaches. Not only do you get amazing island views, but the glass bottom allows you to see underwater sights too!
Although a horseback ride might not be the first thing you think of on a Majorcan beach holi-day, it’s still possible to find. Rancho Willy, a well renowned local stable, offers visitors the chance to explore the island in a different way. With rides ranging from 90 minutes to whole day treks, there’s certainly something for everyone.
Cuevas dels Hams
For both history and nature lovers, nothing beats a trip to the Cuevas del Hams. Over ten mil-lion years old, these caves not only show the natural beauty of the island but provide a history lesson on everything from the Big Bang to now.
Cala Millor beach
A trip to Cala Millor isn’t complete without visiting its very own beach. Known as one of the best beaches on the east of the island, this Blue Flag beach stretches over a kilometre of coastline. Bordered by sparkling sea on one side and a picturesque promenade on the other, Cala Millor beach has sunbeds, parasols and a huge selection of cafes and bars. What more could you want?
For a more off the beaten track experience, try the beach at Canyamel. Within a fifteen mi-nute drive, you can escape the bustle of Cala Millor and enjoy a much quieter beach experience. With mountain views as well as sea views, Canyamel is less of a tourist destination than its neigh-bours and is favoured by visitors from mainland Spain.
Cala Millor restaurants
As with other Spanish coastal towns, the seafood meals here are not to be missed. Part of any Majorcan holiday involves experiencing a fresh fish dinner. Other traditional Spanish food, such as tapas, is also easily found. Most restaurants will also offer fresh paella, unlike the frozen varie-ties served more inland.
International cuisine can also be easily found in the area. As with other well-developed tourist resorts, the big chains are all available and it’s easy to find American and Italian food whenever you look. As a popular destination for British expats, traditional pub grub can also be found in the town.
Majorcan cuisine is famed for its delicious fruit and vegetables - which can be found in all su-permarkets as well as restaurants. If you want to have a truly traditional Majorcan restaurant ex-perience, look for delights such as fideua - Majorca’s own variation of paella.
As the biggest resort on the east of the island, holidays in Cala Millor have something for eve-ryone. The beautiful beaches and the promenade make it a great place for family holidays. Whilst the nightclubs and bars appeal to those holidaying without children. Well connected to its neigh-bouring towns, staying in Cala Millor gives you plenty of options to explore further afield.
