Playa de Formentor
Playa de Formentor really is magical. The beach is fairly remote and a strong head for heights is required for the drive across the serpentine like road, we favor a trip by boat, which is easy to rent in Port de Pollensa. The beach is a large bay and a long stretch of white sand set amongst the dramatic backdrop of Cap Formentor.
Cala Mitjana (Fentilax) is a tiny beach of sand and rocks nestled in a secluded inlet of the sea between Cala d’Or and Portocolom, in Felanitx, in the east of Mallorca. The sandy area is about 20 m long and barely 15 m wide. It is a hidden paradise only located after a good 45 minute walk across rugged rural terrain, but wow is it worth the journey. Tip look out for the large pig in the field grazing on the fruit trees, you know you are about 30 minutes away but on the right track.
Cala Mondragó is located in a natural park in the southeast of Mallorca, in an idyllic enclave suitable for families and yachts out in the bay, that has been named Natural Area of Special Interest and Special Protection Area for Birds. Top tip dont SATNAV the beach as it will take you to a residential private road with no parking, head for the allocated parking area and walk down to this idyllic beach.
Playa de Cala Gat
Cala Gat is a beautiful beach of sand and rocks located near Punta de Capdepera, in the north of Mallorca. The tone and clarity of the water in this area is exceptional. It's a small lovely cove with crystal clear water suitable for couples and families.
Cala Santanyí is a traditional Mallorca beach located about 10 kilometres from the charming town of Santanyi, on the south-east coast of Mallorca. It holds blue fag status and is great for families and snorkelling around the cove.
Cala Tuent is simply breathtaking, with a backdrop of the Serra de Tramuntana next door to the Sa Calobra with its crystal clear waters it easily makes our top 9. The road is windy, and magical, but you do need a head for heights, not for the faint hearted. But wow its certainly worth a visit.
Portals Vells located in in the Southwest of Mallorca this beach is certainly worth a visit, jump on a scooter from Magaluf or a short boat trip from Palma. The waters are beautiful and views spectacular.
Cala Na Clara
Cala Na Clara located in the North of Mallorca has everything, crystal clear waters, beautiful swimming bay, mountain backdrops and a genuine feel of seclusion and privacy. The walk down to the beach is extremely difficult to navigate and very steep, however if you can make it, its worth a visit.
Cala Pi ...Its name "Pi" (pine in Spanish) comes from the trees that surround the beautiful cove. Considered by many to be the perfect beach, protected between two cliffs, with golden sand and turquoise blue waters. The cove is short, about 50m long, but quite wide (140m). The cliffs on both sides of the beach make it a safe place, protected from the winds (perfect for those Instagram shots).
