When we think of beaches, think of holidays. But everyone has their own idea of the perfect beach vacation.

The good news is: In order to be able to find it, no one has to fly far.
The residents of Mallorca have chosen the ten most beautiful beaches of the resort island - is there also one for you?

• At the Cala Mesquida there is a full tourist program, including a bar and a paddle boat rental.

• The Platja es Trenc is the longest natural beach of Mallorca - Caribbean feeling included.

• Those who like it rather quiet, are now working their way towards Platja de es Carbó or Coll Baix.


The Playa de Palma is probably the most famous beach of Mallorca. It is about six kilometres long. Fifteen beach bars divide the way - whereby the bar number 6, the so called Ballermann, has especially contributed to its popularity.

But Mallorca can do better than just mass and drinking tourism. Anyone who walks away from the beaten paths there can discover unique landscapes.

We present the ten most beautiful beaches of English tourists’ favourite island.


1. Cala Torta, near Arta - East
Nestled in hills and wild nature: The Cala Torta
The bay with the bright sandy beach is located in a mountainous landscape. It is well suited as a starting point for hikes along the coast. In windy conditions high waves also attract surfers. But beware: The under-water currents, you should not underestimate.

2. Cala Mesquida, near Capdepera - Eastern
The turquoise blue sea at the Cala Mesquida is suitable for swimmers and water sports enthusiasts
The Cala Mesquida is a nature reserve and is embedded in an imposing dune landscape. Nevertheless, the turquoise sea bay is fully accessible for the tourist. Visitors will find there deck chairs, parasols, sanitary facilities, a bar and even a pedal boat rental. In summer it is very popular with tourists because it is easily accessible from the villages Arta and Capdepera.


3. Platja es Trenc, near Campos - South
Platja es Trenc is particularly suitable for families with children
With its six kilometres the Platja es Trenc is s the longest natural beach of Mallorca. Someone who looks from the white sandy beach in the direction of the deep blue sea has a Caribbean like feeling. Since the water entry is very shallow, the Platja is particularly suitable for families with children.

4. Cala Agulla, near the Cala Ratjada - North
Green dunes, mountains and forests surround the beautiful bay of Cala Agulla
The Cala Agulla is connected with the Cala Mesquida by a hiking trail. It is located on a conservation area, surrounded by dunes, mountains and forests. Besides, active fans can rent there pedal boats, water skis and windsurfing equipment as well.

5. S’Amarador, near Santanyi - Eastern
Der beach S’Amarador is located in a nature reserve
The beach S’Amarador is in the midst of a nature reserve, the Parque Natural Cala Mondrago and faces a huge pine forest. The best? For those who find the sea too wild, can relax on the fine white sandy beach and can explore the adjacent lake with torrent instead. In summer, however, you should expect that lake and torrent are often dry.

6. Playa Formentor, near Pollenca - North
fincallorca The Formentor beach in the north of the island offers a white sandy beach to visitors.
The Formentor beach lies at the western end of the bay of Pollenca. It is known for its fine, white sand beach, but above all for the luxury hotel of the same name. He is surrounded by pine forests and offers a unique mountain panorama. Nevertheless, there is an access for persons with disabilities, toilets, showers, a deck chairs rental, lifeguards and a dock for boats.

7. Son Serra de Marina, near Margalida - North
Son Serra de Marina is nestled in green dunes
The Playa Son Serra de Marina is located on the gently sloping water. Sailors are therefore recommended to keep a safe distance in order not to run aground. Nearby is a sandy beach consisting of coarser brown sand that also has a nudist area on the eastern part.


8. Platja de es Carbó, near Ses Salines - South
Only accessible via a 45-minute walk: The Platja de es Carbó
Those seeking peace will find it at the Platja de es Carbó. As this beach can only be reached by a 45-minute walk from Colonia de Sant Jordi it’s correspondingly less visited. It also borders with the dunes. The island Na Molino, on the opposite side, can be well observed from there, as well as rare bird species.



9. Platja des Coll Baix, near Alcudia - North
Those preferring to be completely alone, find Platja des Coll Baix the right place.  As the beach is so hard to reach a few tourists would brave to get there
The beach of Coll Baix is only accessible on foot. The hike there also takes about 45 minutes, but is a bit more adventurous and at the end leads even over rocks. Upon arrival we’ll see green cliffs and a completely natural landscape with bright pebble beach on turquoise sea.


10. Cala Tuent, near Escora - West
The Cala Tuent is also a bit remote, but still well within driving distance
Another somewhat secluded natural beach can be found in Cala Tuent. The bay is primarily known for its clear water. Also, the restaurant there named “It Vergeret” serves homemade food in front of a unique backdrop. However, the bay is not very useful for swimming, as occasionally some strong currents prevail there.
