This pretty, exclusive north-coast village is a million miles away from the frenetic fun of Majorca’s most notorious resort, Magaluf. Of course, it still enjoys the same balmy Balearic weather, beautiful beaches and all the charms of Mediterranean island life.
Cala San Vicente has roots as a fishing village. The mountains of the Sierra de Tramuntana separate it from the busy south coast, and that has helped protect the area’s traditional character. You might want to check out the range’s stellar reputation as a cycling testing ground on your 2021 holiday in Cala San Vicente.
On the doorstep you’ll find Pollenca, one of Majorca’s most beautiful and historic towns, and there are more attractions, and another beautiful old town to explore further along the coast at Alcudia.
There’s something for everyone on Majorca, from Lycra-clad sports nuts to romance-seeking couples, and Cala San Vicente is a great north-coast perch from which to explore them. We offer a range of hote and holiday types in Cala San Vicente, including all inclusive.

Your guide to Cala San Vicente holidays
Your holiday to Cala San Vicente includes a trio of varying beach options right on your doorstep. You can also travel to either Alcudia or Puerto Pollensa for more choice on a coast that tends towards the rocky and dramatic. If you want to really enjoy that side of things then head to Cap Formentor, where a lighthouse keeps ships away from jagged cliffs.
There are more dramatic landscapes inland, with the peaks and gorges of the Serra de Tramuntana well worth exploring on foot, bike or by car.
This part of Majorca is not as developed as the south coast, but Alcudia has a pretty good water park alongside a beautiful old town. History is an underappreciated side of this sunny holiday island, and you’ll find even more in Pollenca, where the 265-step ascent to the Calvario Chapel will give you a beautiful view of the layout of this Roman town.
There are three options for those who intend to spend most of their Cala San Vicente holiday topping up their tan.
All of the Cala Barques, Santa Clara and Cala Molins beaches are just a stroll from the village’s accommodation. None of them are enormous, but they offer a bit of choice, with big Cala Barques, and more isolated Santa Clara offering sand with some nice rocky diving spots, with Cala Molins – a little further away – offering great quality sands.
Hop into your hire car to grab towel space at Puerto Pollenca beach or Playa de Aucanada in Alcudia, both of which have more in the way of resort facilities to ensure your ice cream cone and cocktail glass never run empty.
If you want to get a bit further off the beaten track then try Playa de Sant Joan, a small beach with a gentle slope into the sea that makes it a great favourite with families.
