Cala Mondragó sits in a picturesque bay, with Mediterranean pines and cliffs tumbling into an azure sea. This small and low-key resort is the perfect holiday destination if you want to chill out and relax in gorgeous surroundings, perhaps heading out into the surrounding nature reserve for some wonderful walks, strolling around the harbour in neighbouring Porto Petro, or browsing around the market in nearby Santanyí. If you’re looking for some nightlife and shopping, you could head up the coast to the larger and livelier resort of Cala d’Or, or even spend the day in the enchanting island capital of Palma, which is about an hour’s drive away.

Your guide to Cala Mondrago holidays
Holiday-makers return again and again to Cala Mondragó for its beautiful natural setting and blissful tranquillity. The main beach is truly spectacular: a small curve of golden sand hugged by ochre cliffs and Mediterranean pines. It may be small, but this Blue Flag beach is well equipped and there are plenty of places to eat and drink within a short stroll. The sleepy little town is set in the Mondragó nature reserve, which has lots of fantastic walks, including paths around the coast to more unspoilt coves. You could pop into the traditional little towns of Santanyí or Felanitx to pick up supplies and souvenirs at the market, and, if you’re in search of some lively nightlife, Cala d’Or is just 10 minutes’ drive up the coast.
The beach at Cala Mondragó is small but perfectly formed, and is regularly voted one of the prettiest in all Majorca. It has been awarded a Blue Flag for the cleanliness of the water and its excellent facilities, which include sunbed and parasol rental, plus a beach bar and lifeguard post, and you will find a choice of cafés and restaurants within a short walk. A beautiful path leads around the coast to the resort’s second beach, Cala S’Amarador, in about 30 minutes. This is another wonderful sandy beach, with shallow, clear waters, but you’ll need to bring a parasol and a picnic as it has no facilities.
