There is no need to travel as far as the Caribbean, Seychelles or Maldives if you are looking for paradisiac beaches with crystal clear waters. Majorca has all this and more.
All over the island you can find beaches in varying sizes, some are very easy to reach and others require a car and to get to some of the more remotes ones you even have to be prepared to do some proper walking.
Two of the Majorca’s most famous beaches are Es Trenc in the south and Formentor in the north. You need to have a car to reach both, but the drive is definitely worth it. The idyllic narrow beach of Formentor, surrounded by pine trees and located next to the iconic Formentor hotel. This luxurious establishment has received countless celebrities over the years. Amongst the famous guests who have stayed here we find Charles Chaplin, Winston Churchill, Gary Cooper, John Wayne or Audrey Hepburn.
At the other end of the island, on the south east coast, we have the famous Es Trenc beach. This is an almost 3 kilometre long beach with turquoise waters that evokes an image of true paradise. It is a favourite amongst both locals and visitors. One of the rare features of Es Trenc is the lack of buildings in the surroundings making it a truly picturesque spot.
Majorca is also home to numerous less well-known beaches that often are located in more secluded areas or which are a bit more complicated to reach. But they are all definitely worth a visit. One of these is the small virgin beach of Caló des Moro located about 7 kilometres from the town of Santanyí in an area of great natural beauty.
Another unspoilt beach with fine white sand is Cala Mondragó situated within the Mondragó National Park.
If you are only visiting our island for a short golf break; perhaps a long weekend staying in Palma and playing some golf, but you still want to enjoy some beach time, this can still be done. There are plenty of nice beaches that we can recommend around Palma city.
The Playa de Palma beach is undoubtedly one of the island’s most well-known long stretches of sand and the one clearly visible when you approach Palma’s airport by air. Here you find plenty of cafés, restaurants and shops as well as a lovely promenade.
Only a 20 minutes bus ride from Palma, taking bus number 3, you reach the pleasant suburb of Illetas. Here you find another popular beach which is actually made up of two adjacent beaches; one larger and more commercial and a smaller one which tends to be more popular amongst locals.
Majorca and its many marvellous beaches are here waiting for you!
Play Golf, Enjoy Mallorca!
