The belle of the Balearics, Mallorca is known for its dreamy coastline, secluded coves and powdery white sands. There are quietly tucked away beaches, hidden from all the hustle and bustle, as well as others that are more popular during high-season and offer a buzzing atmosphere. Some are perfect for families, others for water-sports enthusiasts, and others for nightlife-seekers. 

In this week’s blog post, we’ll discover some of our favourite beaches, from vibey spots in the north to secluded gems in the south, as well as our top villas to stay in nearby. Whether you’re looking to tan, play or dive right in, these beaches have got it all.

1. Cala Mondragó

You’ll spot Cala Mondragó’s dazzling waters peeking through from the surrounding crags and woodlands. A long stretch of sand and incredible natural beauty make this beach one to remember, meaning it's quite a popular choice for visitors. There is a beach bar, parasol rental service and a car park just a walk away.

Where to stay

Ca’n Mondrago is a dreamy waterfront villa, with a heart-shaped pool and sun deck posed directly above rocks and a tiny sandy beach.  It is just a short drive from the National Park of Cala Mondragó, with its beautiful large beach and lovely restaurants.

Set at the base of a lush pine forest, Cala Formentor is one of the hottest swim-spots in North Mallorca. This crescent-shaped beach boasts warm, crystalline waters, a sand and pebble shore and areas of natural shade for cooling off.
