Beaches in Calvià
We recommend that if you come to Calvià in the summer season, you should visit some of the most famous beaches in the municipality.

However, if you are looking for something different to do in Calvià, we recommend that you leave behind the usual, large, comfortable, overcrowded beaches and go in search of some of Calvià’s coves. In Calvià there are numerous and paradisiacal coves with crystalline waters and white sand. They are typical postcard coves… but seeing them in person is one of the real wonders of Mallorca. Not only can you see them on paper or on a screen, but you can also step on their sand and bathe in the turquoise waters of these magnificent coves.
Activities what to do in Calvià
Of course Majorca is known for its paradisiacal beaches and coves and of course Calvia is not lacking in this. There are many to choose from. However, if you are more of a dry person… there are many other activities to do in Calvià.
We recommend that you visit the capital of Mallorca, Palma, and that you take a walk through the streets that make up the old part of the city such as Jaime III, Las Ramblas, El Borne, Sindicato, San Miguel… some of the most famous and commercial streets on the island. Another thing you must do without fail if you escape to the capital, is to visit some of the most famous monuments such as the Cathedral of Mallorca on the Paseo Marítimo, or the Castell de Bellver, just 10 minutes from the center.
Another thing we recommend you do in Calvià is to go on hiking routes. If there is something that is not missing in Mallorca apart from beaches and coves, it is the hiking routes. There are hundreds of routes along the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range. If you like the countryside, landscapes and the open air, we recommend that you take a walk in the mountains and go on one of the excursions that the Serra de Tramuntana has prepared for you. It is also the ideal place for those who want to train for races in the mountains, as there are many routes designed and prepared for this purpose. We encourage you that if you run in the mountains, you should not leave Mallorca without doing some of them.
