Your guide to Cala Mayor holidays
The beach is the focus of life in Cala Mayor - and it couldn't be lovelier. A beautiful stretch of golden sand, with coconut-palm sunshades, it is lapped by turquoise waters and tucked into a sheltered bay. There are lots of restaurants, cafés and bars to choose from, or you could hop on the bus to reach the centre of Palma in just a few minutes. There's lots to see and do in the area, whether you fancy a day at the big shopping centre in Portopí, or want to visit Joan Miró's studio, part of the outstanding Pilar and Joan Miró Foundation, which occupies a fantastic hilltop position.
The beach is not big at Cala Mayor, but it’s got everything you need for an enjoyable holiday by the sea. You may be sharing it with the Spanish royal family, whose summer residence, the Marivent Palace, enjoys a fantastic clifftop setting overlooking the bay. Just 3 miles from the centre of Palma, the beach boats fine sand, a shallow slope and pristine waters, making it a good option for families. There’s a café right on the beach, plus several more within a few minutes’ walk. The calm sea is good for paddle boarding and kayaking, and you can rent equipment from local suppliers. The rocky coastline is great for snorkelling and there are lots of small coves to explore nearby, including the Cala Guix and the Cala Fornaris.
