Get ready for a well-earned holiday of soaking up the sun, indulging your taste buds and striking out on exciting adventures. With its warm climate and even warmer welcome, Cala Millor offers up a host of new experiences to try out to make this a truly memorable vacation. Here you have the chance to watch the stunning Mediterranean sunrise on-board a catamaran sailing boat as you head out on a dolphin spotting expedition. Or how about taking in a classical music concert on the shores of one of the biggest underground lakes in the world, set among the spectacular Caves of Drach? The diverse and fascinating landscape of Majorca is waiting to be explored, either on foot or by bike, and for the whole family, there’s a host of thrilling fun parks and fascinating nature reserves to discover.
For a quieter pace and glorious views, the Son Servera golf course is just a 15-minute drive away, below a magnificent pine-covered mountain range.
At the end of a fun-filled day, the nightlife in Cala Millor has all the bases covered—whether you’re in the mood for a chic cocktail bar, the chilled out vibe of a roof terrace café or a full on dance till dawn.
Cala Millor lies on Majorca’s east coast, roughly 70-kilometres from the island’s international airport, Palma de Mallorca. There are plenty of shuttle buses that will take you to the resort, with a transfer time of about two hours.
Renowned as one of the best on Majorca’s east coast, Cala Millor beach is nearly two kilometres of pure white sand leading into an inviting, crystal clear Mediterranean. The bay is sheltered by rocky outcrops to the north and south, making the calm, shallow waters safe for kids and toddlers to splash in to their heart’s content. Ticking every box for the discerning beach lover, here you’ll find straw sunshades, banana boat rides, pedalos and every type of water sport you can imagine.
The promenade leading from Cala Millor beach all the way to the old harbour at Cala Bona is lined with beautiful bars and cafés, and passes the patchwork of sand and rocky coves that makes up Cala Bona beach. Smaller and more laid back than its neighbour, this secluded spot offers a quieter hideaway for a touch of sun worshipping, while still being perfectly safe to paddle in the shallow waters.
The festival of the patron saint of domestic animals is celebrated on January 16th. Beginning at dusk with the lighting of street bonfires in towns and rural villages all across the country, the celebrations include traditional folk singing, authentic foods such as sobrassada, a Majorcan sausage meat that’s cooked in the embers, and a lot of wine! Demonic figures wander between the bonfires performing their special dance to commemorate the saint’s brave deeds and it’s followed the next day by a procession of floats representing rural life parading through the streets. One of the most magical nights in the Majorcan calendar.
Easter is a week-long feast of fun in Majorca. The main parades and celebrations take place in the capital, Palma, but the party-vibe is infectious and spreads across the island. Street vendors serve up mouth-watering food and drinks.
Jutting out of the eastern coastline of Majorca just a few kilometres south of Cala Millor, this nature reserve has been safeguarded by environmentalists and is home to several species of marine animals. Its 200-hectare space makes a great escape from the busy resort, and you can amble along the pathway that takes you out along the cape by foot or even on horseback. At the top, there’s a 17th century watchtower, the Castell de n’Amer, which stands guard over some incredible views of the coast. Don’t forget your camera!
Without doubt one of the most spectacular sights on the island, the Caves of Drach located in Porto Cristo are filled with stalagmites and stalactites along their one-kilometre length, as they descend some 25-metres underground. The hour-long tour tells you all about the history of this stunning natural phenomenon and ends at Europe’s largest underground lake, Lake Martel. The caves are illuminated by a dazzling multi-coloured lightshow, and boats filled with classical musicians take advantage of the unique acoustics to put on a concert for you.
Majorca has 20 golf courses scattered across the island, and Cala Millor is within a 15-minute drive of four great examples, each with its own quirks and challenges. The 18-holes of Son Servera, the second oldest course on the island, stands in the shade of the Serra de Llevant Mountains and gives players unforgettable views across the bay. The exclusive Pula Golf course hosts some of the biggest names and tournaments in the sport. The Dan Maples designed Capdepera is the one with the most spectacular scenery. Its 15th hole is repeatedly voted the most beautiful on the whole of Majorca. And the challenging Canyamel tops off the big four, sitting at 6,185m from where you can see the neighbouring island of Menorca on a clear day.
