Calvià, in the Balearic Islands, is a municipality of great tourist affluence during a large part of the year, and belongs to Mallorca, located to the west of the island, bordering the Serra de Tramuntana and reaching as far as the Serra de Na Burguesa. Calvià Vila is the capital of this beautiful Mallorcan location.
The climate of this area is mild almost all year round. The characteristics of the spring and summer seasons mean that temperatures rise a few degrees, which is reflected in the huge influx of tourists who flock to the beaches in search of warmth and fun.
The beaches of Calvià are perhaps one of the most sought-after attractions in this part of the island of Mallorca. Calvià has a wide range of beaches and coves of great beauty. A true visual ecstasy is provided by the fusion of the colours of the sea, the sand and the ochre-green edges of the mountains.
