Mallorca (Majorca) is one of Spain’s Balearic Islands in the Mediterranean. It’s known for beach resorts, sheltered coves, limestone mountains, and Roman and Moorish remains. Capital Palma has nightlife, the Moorish Almudaina royal palace, and 13th-century Santa María Cathedral. Stone-built villages include Pollença, with its art galleries and music festival, and hillside Fornalutx, surrounded by citrus plantations.
Es Fortí is a military fortification which was home to the troops that protected the south-eastern coast of Mallorca.
Cala d’Or is a resort area on the southeast coast of the Spanish island of Mallorca (Majorca). It’s known for its yacht marina along Cala Llonga. The shores are dotted with pine-fringed coves, including the main beach, Cala Gran. On a hilltop to the north, the medieval Santueri Castle overlooks S’Horta village and the coastline. To the southwest, Mondragó Natural Park is rich in birdlife, including shags and ospreys.
Cala Santanyí is a low-key holiday resort and beach located about 10 kilometres from the charming village of Santanyi, on the south-eastern coast of Mallorca. The 130-metre long beach is made up of fine, white sand and the waters are clear and calm, perfect for families as well as for good snorkelling. Thought it can get crowded in the summer, it is a Blue Flag beach, marking its cleanliness and high environmental standards.
Several small-to-mid size hotels are located on the beach as well as several restaurants serving good beach fare, tapas, grilled fish and more. Here you can rent sunbeds and parasols and there are a few watersports and activities for hire including paddle boats and canoes. There are showers and toilet facilities onsite. Cala Santanyí is particularly popular with Germans, families as well as Spanish visitors. There are pine and juniper trees along the low, rocky cliffs that surround this beach as well.
Cala Mitjana is located on the east coast of Mallorca, only a few kilometers north of the popular holiday resort, Cala d’Or.
This beach is one of two beaches in Mallorca with the same name. The other, and larger, Cala Mitjana is located on the north coast of Mallorca.
