The 10 most beautiful beaches in Mallorca: what they are and how to get there

Before telling you what are the 10 must-visit beaches in Mallorca, some general information. Majorca is located in the Balearic Islands and like all the other islands in the area it is washed by the Mediterranean Sea. Majorca can be reached by plane from Italy with direct connections (especially during the summer) or by passing through Barcelona, ​​Madrid or Valencia, to then continue by plane or ferry. Mallorca, the largest of the Balearic Islands, lends itself perfectly to a trip by car; in fact, we recommend renting a car to enjoy the island and its beauty in comfort and freedom.

Cala Agulla is located within the Llevant Natural Park which, officially declared a Natural Area of ​​Special Interest in 1991, has remained protected from the invasion of hotels and concrete buildings. The clear sandy beach is interspersed with low rocks and the waters of Cala Agulla are awarded the Blue Flag every year. Tourists have a bar and sun loungers and umbrellas for hire. In summer it is often crowded, which however does not undermine its beauty.

How to get there: Cala Agulla is located in a protected area close to Capdepera and Cala Ratjada. It can be reached by car or by bus or taxi from Capdepera. To get to the beach you have to leave your car in the paid parking of the pine forest and go down on foot.

If you love the sea and little tourist beaches, Cala Mesquida is really for you. Characterized by the presence of fine and clear sand and by the dunes that lap and sculpt it, it is among the beaches that best represent the relaxed air of Mallorca. There is a bar and restaurant, but other than that, services are scarce. On windy days, the beach is full of surfers in search of the perfect wave.

How to get there: Cala Mesquida can be reached by car by parking in the adjacent pine forest or, if you are staying in the nearby village of Capdepera, also by taxi or bus.

Blue sea, white sand and dunes: these are the main features of Es Trenc, a relatively narrow but long enough piece of land which has also been given the nickname "Caribbean of Mallorca", one of the most beautiful beaches on the island . Although it has been left quite natural and the construction of buildings of various types has been prohibited, Es Trenc is still a beach equipped with bars, restaurants, rental of deckchairs and umbrellas and in summer people are not lacking. There are, however, free areas on which you can stop without any problem. The waters that slope gently and are always calm attract many families with children.

How to get there: you can get there by bus, line 502 or 530 towards Colonia Sant Jordi, from Palma, Playa de Palma or El Arenal. By car, park at Colonia de Sant Jordi to get to the beach via the shore or at the paid parking adjacent to the beach which is located on a rough road that runs along the Flor de Sal salt flats of Es Trenc.

Cala Mondragó is located in the southern part of Majorca and is rightly considered one of the most beautiful beaches on the island, given that it is located inside the Parc Natural Mondragò and is characterized by the presence of dunes, rocky coves and a truly sea splendid, which is suitable both for those who love sunbathing and for those who like to exercise. Cala Mondragò is quite small (in summer, better to move in time) and is fully equipped, and ideal for those who love snorkeling.

How to get there: the beach can be reached by car by choosing the S’Alqueria Blanca entrance to the Parc Natural Mondragò or by public transport (bus 371 from Cala d’Or) and a short walk from the parking lot.

Very close to Cala Mondragò beach, which can be reached on foot with a path, Cala S’Amarador is located inside the Parc Natural Mondragò. The cove is not excessively large and is located in an inlet surrounded by rocks, to the point that it has also been included among the most beautiful beaches in Europe. The calm waters, the availability of sun beds and umbrellas and the fact that it is not easily accessible by all make it one of the must-see beaches if you are on holiday in Mallorca. You will love it.

Wild nature that alternates white sand and pine trees lapping the water characterize Cala Mitjana, in the eastern part of Mallorca, among the most beautiful beaches on the island. Little touristy compared to many other destinations, Cala Mitjana presents a truly unique landscape on the island, and the absence of strong winds and tourists make it one of the most peaceful beaches for those who want to relax and enjoy the sea and sun.

Two pine-covered cliffs form the backdrop to Cala de Los Moros, one of the most suggestive coves in Mallorca. White sand, turquoise sea and the dimensions that change according to the tides and weather conditions: Cala de Los Moros is not equipped and, due to its characteristics, it is not a destination for mass tourism even if in the peak months you will not be sure alone. It is still worth it!

How to get there: it is located about 9 kilometers from Santanyí and can be reached by following the signs and parking nearby, before venturing on a 20-30 minute walk that will leave you breathless upon arrival.

Located in the southeast of the island of Majorca, Cala Sa Nau is in an optimal position, halfway between the resort area of ​​Cala d’Or and the small town of Portocolom. The beach is well signposted and easily accessible, fully equipped but at the same time, given the small size, always quite quiet and above all silent. The calm and transparent waters make it one of the ideal locations for snorkeling.

The postcard beach par excellence, Cala Varques is located between Porto Cristo and Portocolom and the sheltered and protected position makes it one of the most beautiful corners of the island of Mallorca. The white beach alternates with the reddish rocks which are the perfect counterpart to transparent and crystalline water, ideal for those who want to be in contact with nature. Since it is not equipped and there is nothing, Cala Varques attracts few families and is among the favorite beaches of naturists visiting Mallorca.

How to get there: Cala Varques is 10 kilometers from the village of Porto Cristo. It is a little difficult to reach: the easiest way to get there is via Manacor, and then follow the signs for Calas de Mallorca. When the road ends, turn left at the crossroads and take the first dirt road on the right. There are no public connections in the area.

Formentor beach is truly unique: it is located on the Cap de Formentor Peninsula, in the far north of Mallorca, and is one of the most expensive areas of the island. In fact, the beach, about 10 kilometers long, ideally divides into three areas that correspond to the three different price ranges, all quite high when compared to the rest of the island. The white sand alternates with the pines and the crystal of Playa de Formentor reflects the nature of Mallorca in all its beauty.

How to get there: Formentor and the peninsula can be reached by car, public bus or through organized tours that also allow you to get around the area by boat; the road to get there is quite winding and, in high season, very popular.
