Did you know that in Mallorca there are hundreds of coves and beaches? With its kilometres of coastline, Mallorca is undoubtedly one of the Mediterranean islands with the most beautiful and impressive coves and beaches. The landscape of the island’s coasts is spectacular and reminds one of a paradise, so if you are going to spend your holidays on the island, visiting the coves of Mallorca is an almost compulsory activity.
Best coves in Mallorca
Although it is very difficult for us to choose, some of the coves in Mallorca stand out from the rest because of their incomparable beauty. Whether it is because they are in idyllic surroundings, because of the blue waters or because of the calm they transmit, these are what we consider to be some of the best coves in Mallorca.
Cala Mondragó is located in the southeast of the island, near the town of Santanyí. Cala Mondragó is considered one of the best coves in Mallorca with a blue flag, so it is the ideal place to spend a day at the beach with the whole family, a quiet place with crystalline and shallow waters.
This cove was declared a Natural Park in 1992, in order to preserve the area and keep its natural charm intact. For this reason, it is one of the most beautiful and intact coves on the island, surrounded by cliffs and Mediterranean vegetation and formed by fine sand. Cala Mondragó inspires calm and tranquillity and is a perfect cove to sunbathe, rest, relax and enjoy the incredible natural environment that surrounds it.
Cala Mesquida, like Cala Mondragó, is a protected natural area and was declared a Natural Area of Special Interest. This practically virgin cove, surrounded by sand dunes and Mediterranean pines, stands out as one of the best coves in Mallorca, as well as one of the largest and widest. The cove has fine white sand and turquoise waters and has good access, which makes it very easy to visit. In addition, you will find a deckchair and parasol rental service in the cove, so that you can enjoy your day at the beach with all the comforts.
Sant Vicenç cove
Cala Sant Vicenç is located on the northwest coast of the island, near Pollença, and is probably one of the best known coves in Mallorca. This beautiful cove surrounded by mountains and cliffs is one of the most beautiful places on the island and ideal for taking a dip and relaxing in the Mediterranean sun. There are also other incredible coves in the area such as Cala Varques and Cala Clara, which are also worth a visit.
