Cala Mayor – Majorca

 

Transfer Time – 15 minutes

Best For – a great all round resort for all, couples, families and young and lively.

Cala Mayor is probably the oldest resort travelled to by British tourists, located a stones throw from Majorca’s capital of Palma, makes this a perfect all round destination regardless of age, taste or budget. Cala Mayor has been a popular choice of summer destination for many of our royal family too.

The beach in Cala Mayor is a fantastic one, a blue flag awarded beach with white, soft sand and beautiful still, shallow waters, making it a perfect location for those with young children on non swimmers. The beach is wide and un crowded with many sun loungers and parasols for hire, however the beach is a popular one with locals who like to spend their weekends enjoying the sun and sand too. There is a small selection of water sports on offer, with pedallos, canoes and water skiing available during the busier months.

The evenings in Cala Mayor can be spent enjoying a meal in one of the many traditional restaurants and cafés and there is also a good choice of international eateries too, with Indian, Chinese and Italian proving to be firm favourites. There are lots of bars and cocktail bars, with varying evening entertainments on offer, all with a relaxed, family friendly feel to them. Being so close to Palma, you will find an even larger choice of places to wine and dine and off course some amazing shops too, many open until the early hours, perfect during high season when its just too hot to wander round the shops in 40* heat.

Palma, a mere 5 kilometres from Cala Mayor has so many cultural sights to see, and you will find you need more than a day to see them all, choose from the Gothic cathedral, museums, 10th century Moorish baths or take a wander round the many art galleries. Stop for a cool drink and a bite to eat in the wonderful Al Fresco cafés and restaurants situated up and down the cobbled streets. Away from Palma you have a water parks, a great family day out or there is the Palma Aquarium, with over 50 varied aquariums, Mediterranean Gardens and even a jungle to explore. The Caves of Drach have always been a popular day out, taking in a boat trip under the caves and enjoy free time in the Port of Monte Cristo. Families and couples alike will enjoy the Pirate Show, an evening excursion showing acrobats, music, dancing and lots of action, with food and sangria and soft drinks included, an amazing show and lots of fun included.

Cala Mayor is a great vase to see Majorca and its finest sights, and it is also a perfect location to wind down and chill out. What else do you need on your summer break, perfection!!
