Top 10 Mallorca best beaches
Let’s face it. If 10 Mallorca experts
should provide a list of the best beaches in Mallorca, these lists
would be very different. Mallorca has so many beaches, each of them
amazing in their own way. Child-friendly beaches, romantic beaches,
remote natural beaches or vibrant town beaches. Here is our idea of
the 10 best beaches in Mallorca.
No. 1: S’Aramador
has previously been elected best beach in Europe in a big European
vote. A great natural beach located in the nature reserve Cala
Mondrago in the south-eastern part of Mallorca. The large sand beach
is well protected inside a beautiful bay and the shallow water is
No. 2: Es Trenc
It is hard to ignore the natural beach
Es Trenc, which is the most popular
beach in Mallorca. A long sand beach with fine-grained, bright sand
and dunes behind the beach. The water has the most beautiful
turquoise shades and makes Es Trenc seem almost tropical. There are
a few beach cafés, but otherwise the entire area is preserved.
No. 3: Es Caragol
Are you up for a beach with less tourists and willing to walk for
about half an hour? Then you should go to
Caragol close to the most southern point of Mallorca, Cap
de Ses Salines. The surroundings are breathtaking and the water is
crystal clear. There are no facilities, so remember to bring food
and plenty to drink.
No. 4: Playa d’Alcudia
is a family paradise. A giant sand beach with plenty of room to play
and the most child-friendly water, you can imagine. There are
playgrounds at the beach, all water sports activities possible and
many beach restaurants. It is very popular and well-visited, but
there is also plenty of room.
No. 5: Cala Mondrago
Mondrago beach is located in the national park with the
same name. A beautiful natural resort, which is ideal for hiking -
and a visit to the lovely beach, which is well protected far inside
a rocky bay. The beach has bright, fine-grained sand and the
visitors have access to the usual facilities including beach
restaurants. There is a path to S’Aramador (number 1 in the list) in
the next bay.
No. 6: Cala sa font Celada
This beach is the closest you get to a secret tip. From the parking
space near the small beach Cala Estreta, there is an hour's walk
along the coast, but the experience is very rewarding.
sa font Celada is located in completely unspoiled
surroundings and even during the high season, it is possible to have
the beach all to yourself. It is hard to believe, but the above
photo is from a hot and sunny day in July.
No. 7: Cala Pi
is a small, peaceful holiday resort in the southern part of
Mallorca. The beach with the same name is located almost 400 metres
inside a long, narrow rocky bay, which is the perfect place to take
a long swim. The beach has lovely bright sand and shallow water with
nice turquoise shades. Very child-friendly, but please note that
there is a steep flight of stairs down to the beach.
No. 8: Calo d’es Moro
The setting for the natural beach
Calo d’es Moro is a wonderful bay,
which is very impressive with its rocks and almost turquoise water.
No doubt one of the most beautiful beaches in Mallorca, but
unfortunately, it is often too crowded during the high season. There
are no facilities at the beach.
No. 9: Porto Cristo
If a town beach should slip into this Top 10, it must be
The lovely sand beach is well protected inside a winding bay, and it
has a great view of the mountains, harbour and town. The beach has
all facilities and is very child-friendly. The beach is also a good
starting point if you wish to see one of the greatest tourist
attractions in Mallorca, Coves del Drac.
No. 10: Cala Xinxell
Cala Xinxell is located on the outskirts of the holiday
resort Illetas, it is fairly unknown to most tourists. The beach is
located in a wonderful bay, which is also a popular place for
yachting enthusiasts. A nice beach bar offers a relaxed lounge feel,
and the shallow water makes the beach very child-friendly.
Many other beaches were considered for this Top 10, but sadly, there
was no room for the nice beaches
Cala Formentor or the most
beautiful stone beach in Mallorca,
