Are you travelling to Majorca this summer? Would you like to visit the most beautiful beaches on the island? If you answer yes to both questions, then keep reading as we’ve prepared a selection of the best spots to enjoy Majorca and the real Mediterranean.
If you’re looking for a beach with charm and history, this is it. The fine white sandy beach stretches for about 900m and is surrounded by pine forests that almost reach the water in some parts. Does it have any downside? The beach is out of this world but it does get busy so don’t expect to find a secluded, romantic spot.
Located in Alcúdia on the northern coast of Majorca, this natural wonder nestling between the cliffs might seem impossible to reach at first, but this is precisely why it’s an excellent spot for adventurers. It’s a 14.7km walk from Alcúdia, but if you prefer you can drive some of the way, although the trek is more than worth it.
Magaluf has two things, hoards of tourists and coves where you won’t find anyone else. One of these secret coves is Cala Falcó, a small paradise surrounded by pine trees just past Cala Vinyes. There’s a small beach bar where you can rent sun loungers and grab a bite to eat or something to drink, so it’s ideal for couples. And if there’s no wind blowing from the south, you could happily stay in the water all day.
Crystal clear seawater welcomes you to Cala Agulla in the north of the island. This is a protected natural area and great for families and couples. You can snorkel, take a long ‘siesta’ under the pine trees or the straw parasols along the Majorcan coast, or enjoy a bite to eat at the restaurant on the beach.
Caló des Màrmols
You need to sweat a bit to get here unless you arrive by boat, either way; it’s well worth it. The long path to reach the unspoilt and hidden cove of Caló des Màrmols begins at the lighthouse at Cap de Ses Salines in the southeast corner of Majorca. It’s a challenging walk for children, some say unsuitable, especially in the heat, as it takes over an hour to get there and another hour to walk back. Remember to bring plenty of food and water and a good pair of walking shoes. If you like the sea and remote spots, this is paradise.
Dunes, mountains, pine forests, endless stretches of white sands and clear blue water. Arenal de Es Trenc is one of the most beautiful natural landscapes in Majorca that’s especially popular with couples, and it’s not uncommon to find naturists here. Although Es Trenc is an unspoilt virgin beach that extends over 2km, it’s perfectly equipped.
If you’re searching for the glamour of Majorca you’ve heard so much about, this is it right here, night and day, 24/7. Just a few kilometres from Palma de Mallorca, Illetes beach has it all: turquoise blue, idyllic restaurants for romantic candlelit dinners, upscale beach clubs, ambience…
Playa del Mago
This is the famous nudist beach in Calvià, and yes, fame costs. Off-season it’s a sea of tranquillity but can get a little crowded during peak season. And the reason for its fame, The Magus, starring Michael Cane, Anthony Quinn and Candice Bergen was filmed here in 1967 (although it was set in Greece). At just 29 metres long, you need to get here early to find a space.
Do you dream of strolling along a beautiful white sand beach and gazing out at the crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean Sea? Well, this is your beach. Playa de Ses Covetes is one of Majorca’s gems in the south of the island, close to Es Trenc. It is also one of the best preserved in Majorca, so make sure to do your bit for the environment and keep it that way if you decide to visit. Hawaiin beach bars, a 1km stretch of fantastic beach, good services and the odd farmhouse. This was the genuine and original Mediterranean.
