The 10 Most Stunning Coves of Mallorca

21 May 2022

Mallorca is the most diverse island. Exploring island feels more like visiting a country than vacationing on an island. Every region has beaches that offer a range of experiences. While Mallorca has some of the best beaches in Europe, each has its own character. Whether you prefer the fine sand of Cala Mondragò, the rocky outcroppings around Sant Elm, or a mix of both in Pollença and Alcúdia, your new favorite beach is waiting to be discovered.

With 26 Blue-Flag beaches, you’ll find stunning seaside spots an easy drive from any village on the island. From the northeast to the southwest, the coastline offers crystal blue waters and soft, fine sand. From the southwest up along the stunning mountain coast to Sóller and Cala Formentor, rocky outcrops and small sand and pebble beaches abound. Hike to remote shoreline surprises you’ll remember for a lifetime. Drive friends and loved ones to others they’ll never forget.

Ace a new top 10 list of unspoiled Mallorca beaches. Begin in the southeast and finish the seaside trip of your dreams in the powdery sands off the northeast shore.

Cala Esmeralda

Cala Esmeralda #

Near Cala d'Or, this is a top beach for families, this beach is 50 metres long and 40 metres wide, not very large.

Cala D Egos

Cala d’Egos - Port Andratx #

Sant Elm

Sant Elm #

With the Tramuntana Mountains as a backdrop and Sa Dragonera Natural Park as your vista, enjoy full-service facilities and easy access to one of the most beautiful spots in Mallorca's southwest. Street parking is available so be sure not to park in any of the residential spaces. In summertimes, you'll see many of the larger yachts anchored offshore. Watch for jellyfish that come in with the tides. With limited tourism for the past year, this is an IDEAL location for snorkeling. You will be able to see dolphins and enjoy local flora and fauna.

Banyalbufar #

My husband has joked for years that the name is really "Banyaltoofar." This an absolute treasure of a place - not for the beach but for the sea views and salty air. This is a magical place with breathtaking sunsets, especially in September. This is your destination if you are drawn to remote villages on the coast. The beach is rocky so swimming or sunbathing are not the allure. To get here, you'll drive through Estellencs or Esporles. To see more and watch a video of the area, click here >> Banyalbufar

Sa Calobra by Ursula Elvegard

Sa Calobra #

If being in the scene of a movie appeals to you, this is your secret seashore. Sa Calobra is a secluded spot in stunning surroundings, absolutely unique on the island. A few mega yachts venture to this remote location for privacy and in the summer, you may find a few musicians playing instruments because the tones in this cala produce magical tones. This is a one of a kind place. To learn more and how to find it, click here >> Sa Calobra and Torrent de Pareis

Cala Formentor

Cala Formentor #

In the Top 10 list of best European beaches rated by journalists and tourists, this is a great place to escape the summer heat in the sheltering arms of natural forests and untamed vegetation. This long stretch of the finest, whitest sand never loses its lush green appeal. If you are visiting Pollença or Arta in the northeast part of the island, this place is a must visit to take in the natural beauty. Cala Formentor is a more luxurious area, better for honeymooners and couples than families with children. To find this beach and read more, click here >> Cala Formentor
