Best Beaches in Mallorca

15 May 2021

Time to get your daily dose of Vitamin Sea.

Mallorca has beaches that fit every mood. The beauty about an island in the Mediterranean is that every boundary touches the sea. From the Serra de Tramuntana Mountains that stretch from the northwest to the southwest, historic Alcudia and Pollença, to the birding regions of the island - S'Albufrera Nature Park on northeast coast, Cala Mondragó and Es Trenç then finally the greater city beaches of the Palma-area, you really can find anything you want.

Some beaches are more crowded than others. And even the crowded beaches have areas that will offer a bit of seclusion. Keep reading to find one that is just right for you.

Let's face the facts: Sometimes we all need a treat. Next, find a list of the best beach clubs to enjoy a bit of pampering for the younger set.
