The Best Beaches in Mallorca

Mallorca has so many must-visit destinations that you will be spoilt for choice on your holiday! The beaches here range from large and glorious white sandy beaches to smaller rocky beach stretches and secluded coves. There is something for everyone to be able to enjoy the Spanish Coastline with its gusting breeze, briny waves, and soft beach hues.

The beaches in Mallorca make up over 50 km in length, with the island housing around 262 different types of beaches. There are many options to choose from and amongst the choices are over 31 blue flag beaches. 

When deciding on the best beaches to visit, you may find it a little challenging as there are so many options available! So, we have scouted out the beachfront scene to bring you a review of the best beaches in Mallorca. Whether you prefer a more intimate and secluded cala or the busier (yet equally beautiful) popular beaches, we have you covered!

Es Trenc

This stretch of beach is probably the most famous in Mallorca and hugely popular amongst the residents, holidaymakers and boating community for very good reasons. It truly is a special place to visit as the pure white sand and clear turquoise waters make you feel like you are in the Caribbean.

Es Trenc is located in southern Mallorca between the small town of Ses Covetes and the larger holiday resort of Colonia Sant Jordi. The beach is largely unspoilt and fairly remote but still has all of the facilities that you will need for your day out, including lifeguards, sun loungers, ramps for the disabled, toilets and café/bars for a long cool drink to cool down on those hot days!

Es Trenc stretches across almost 2km and the beach is only around 20m wide so in the busier season you may find people walking quite close to the end of your sun lounger, along the waters edge but you’ll be too busy relaxing and enjoying the amazing scenery to worry about this!

Cala Agulla (Cala Ratjada)

This beautiful sunny beach is the place to be for an amazingly relaxing day out. The surrounding pine trees provide a glorious scent and much needed areas of shade for when it gets a little too hot, while the mountainous views bring out nature’s beauty. 

The white sand gives comforting warmth for a nice stroll along the water’s edge. You can also walk out quite far into the sea at this beach as it is fairly shallow until quite a distance out. Enjoy a nice refreshing swim in the sea, snorkel or take out a pedalo for an hour or so in between lounging on your sun lounger and having a mid-day snooze!

Cala Agulla is readily accessible by foot. If you fancy a slight wander, you can also easily connect to Cala Mesquida and Cala Molto via the pedestrian path. This trail is perfect for naturalists looking to explore the stunning surroundings.

If you bring your car, you can pay for parking in a nearby area for around 5 euros before taking the short trail to the beach. There are also a few bars/cafes towards the back of the beach for that perfect after beach cocktail.

Playa de Muro

Playa de Muro is definitely one of the most stunning beaches on the island with its golden sand and turquoise water. Located in the north of the island, and neighbouring Alcudia, the beach is approximately 6 kilometres long and is one of the island’s Blue Flag beaches.

Playa de Muro is divided into four different sectors. All of them are equally beautiful with clear, shallow waters, which makes it ideal for families with little ones. All along the beach there are lifeguards, cafes, restaurants, shops, showers, toilets and sun loungers and parasols to hire which makes it nice and easy for your day out!

Playa de Formentor

Playa de Formentor is yet another of Mallorca’s beautiful, Blue-Flag beaches. The drive up there is not for the faint hearted as the road is long and windy but comes with stunning scenery along the way. When you visit this beach, you would be remiss not to visit Cap de Formentor, which is the most northern point on the island and has a lighthouse which is popular with visitors. The views from here are simply stunning!

The beach is not particularly big but it certainly packs a punch with its dramatic and beautiful landscape. Playa de Formetor is around 1 kilometre in length and surrounded by pine trees, which is perfect for that bit of necessary shade on the hotter days! The views of the tramuntana mountains are also certainly worth the drive there. The beach is only around 10 kilometres from Port de Pollensa which is a well know tourist destination and offers a variety of restaurants and bars with fabulous sea views. Plan your day well and you can fit in both of these amazing locations!

Cala Deia

Looking for something different to the many golden sandy beaches of Mallorca? Cala Deia is a stunning little pebbly beach with clear waters and rock pools. Situated just outside the small but much loved mountainous town of Deia in the north west of Mallorca, this beautiful hidden cove is home to crystal clear waters. Possibly not a place to set your towel down for the day as the rocks are not as comfortable as the soft sands on various other beaches but certainly if you are looking for something different with stunning scenery then this is your place! As remote as it is, you may well spot the odd celebrity as Deia has long been a second home to the rich and famous!

Cala Torta

Cala Torta is a beautiful small and unspoilt cove that is tucked well out of sight in the northeast part of Mallorca. The beach is clearly signposted, although the road is a little rocky to get there. Located approximately 12 kilometres from the town of Arta, you will find this hidden treasure will provide the perfect romantic spot if you are looking to woo your loved one.

However, environmental restrictions limit the setup of ‘chiringuitos’ here which are beach side café/restaurants so, you’ll have to bring all of your supplies including drinks, and snacks. Remember to properly dispose of any leftovers and rubbish to maintain this beautiful beach. 

Cala Torta is ideal for divers as the dazzling blue water is deep enough for this activity. If you have children, be sure to supervise them well whilst they are in the water as it does drop off quite suddenly from shallow to very deep. 

Calo des Moro

If you’re staying in southern Mallorca, don’t miss a visit to Calo des Moro. This beach is managed and maintained by a private entity, hence, the sophisticated and stunning surroundings. 

However, you will have to put in a little physical effort to get to this gorgeous beach. It’s most suited to the sportier tourists who would be enthusiastic about climbing down cliffs and rocks. 

Although smaller than the nearby beaches, Calo des Moro is special. The encircling rock boulders complement the desert-like landscape.  The sunlight bounces easily on the sea here so you can enjoy nature’s rhythm of this beautiful oceanic gift. 

Whatever your choice of beach, we hope that you have the best day out. Don’t forget your sunscreen as it gets pretty hot here, particularly in July and August!
