For Tailor-made Holidays

Call it Majorca or Mallorca, the Spanish island has become a favourite of many tourists in recent times, especially those arriving from the United Kingdom and Germany. It is home to some beautiful natural landscapes, which you can witness when you go hiking or cycling in certain areas. Upon witnessing these awe-inspiring sights, you'll not be surprised by the fact that the island is explored by more than 9 million tourists every year.

There are many attractive places you can visit during your majorca holidays. However, it is the beaches that are among the extremely charming attractions on the island. Here we've listed the most enchanting ones:

1. Sa Calobra

Located between cliffs that reach the height of nearly 200 metres, Sa Calobra Beach allows you to enjoy some mesmerising natural surroundings besides total relaxation. Over the years, this beach has served as an inspiration for many artists. Although a part of this beach situated between the cliffs is quite small, it is separated from the larger part of the pebbled beach by the Torrent de Pareis stream. There are bars and restaurants located nearby, but there are no great facilities on the beach. It is, therefore, extremely necessary that you bring a lounger or chair if you wish to spend more time at Sa Calobra.

2. Cala San Vicente

When you visit this beach in the small resort town of Cala Sant Vicenc, you'll get to visit three small beaches of Cala Molins, Cala Barques, and Cala Clara. The largest among the three is Cala Molins, making it the favourite of tourists who arrive in summers for sunbathing. Cala Clara is the smallest among them and a pebbled beach, which can be ideal for embarking on a snorkelling tour and finding crabs that hide in the rocks. Swimming can be quite risky in the waters touching the Cala San Vincec beach area during bad weather, but complete safety is ensured by the lifeguards as they give appropriate warnings.

3. Cala Mesquida

A remote beach located in the north-eastern part of the island, Cala Mesquida has beautiful white sands and stretches to about 300 metres. The entire beach area and its surroundings are protected owing to the presence of a large population of gulls and cormorants in this part of Majorca. You'll find sandy stretches and pine trees to the east of this beach set against the backdrop of hills. To its west are several shops and restaurants besides a small resort. You can hire parasols and sun-loungers during your time spent on this beach.

4. S'illot

During your holiday in this gorgeous island destination, you can visit this beach washed by crystal clear waters of the Mediterranean. Its name translates as 'Small Island' in the Catalan language and refers to the islet, which you can see off the shore. Although the clear waters touching this beach would give you the impression that it is not visited by many tourists, this is far from the truth. Many of the tourists visiting Majorca never forget to visit S'illot. It also has some excellent services, such as depth indicators, showers, and facilities for water sports.

5. Es Trenc

You can have plenty of space while taking a stroll on this beach located near Sant Jordi, even though it is visited by many tourists and locals. It extends to about 3 kilometres and has powdery white sands and crystal-clear turquoise waters. Es Trenc Beach is considered to be among the best on the island owing to these features. You would find lifeguards patrolling the beach and there are many facilities provided for visitors, such as parasols and sunbeds for hire and ramps for the disabled.
