Top Attractions

Thanks to the spectacular surrounding of Majorca, Cales de Majorca has a wide range of excellent attractions and points of interest within easy reach. There’s not one, but a trio of gorgeous golden beaches along this stretch of coastline: Cala d’Or, Cala Llombards and the more secluded Portopetro. One of the major draws of Cala de Majorca is the compact size, which makes it easy to navigate and get about by foot. Nevertheless, if your kids’ feet get tired there’s a handy mini-train to hop on which will take you around the resort, so you can save your energy for jumping around on the bouncy castles, playing a few rounds of crazy golf and enjoying a spot of shopping. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can go zip-wiring, which will give you birds’ eye views of the resort. For a relaxed day in the sun, head to the Cala Domingos Gran to laze around on the soft white sands, go exploring the hidden sandy coves at Cala Antena and Cala Domingos Petit, or sip on a sangria as the sun goes down at one of the resort’s many beachside bars.

Nightlife

Nightlife

As a family-friendly tourist resort, Cales de Majorca isn’t designed with a bustling, party-mad nightlife in mind.

The nightlife here is particularly geared toward families, small groups of friends and more mature holidaymakers who prefer to steer clear of clubs with loud music and rowdy revellers. Some of the best nightclub venues in this area include Tiffany’s Fun Pub Club and The Rock Cola Club, which often have live tribute acts and have welcomed famous international DJs. If you’re looking for a more vibrant night out within the resort itself, you’re best off waiting until after midnight and heading to Disco or Sinatra’s Club, which are open through the night, and offer karaoke and dancing until sunrise.
