This article gives you a rundown of the best coves in Mallorca to check out on your stay. Once you’ve finished reading, you’ll be convinced that they can rival the beaches of the Caribbean. Shall we begin?

Cala Agulla: pure natural beauty

This magical cove is a stone’s throw from the medieval town of Capdepera. This roughly 500-metre long cove stuns visitors with its natural beauty and crystal-clear turquoise waters. It’s surrounded by lush pine trees, desert plants, rocks and sand dunes, providing a sense of tranquillity that is hard to come across anywhere else.

Cala Agulla is a must-visit for those looking to connect with nature in an idyllic environment. If you’re looking to unwind, its fine white sand is the perfect place to relax and make the most of the sun. On the other hand, if action is more your thing, you can go diving, snorkelling, kayaking or play volleyball. As you can see, there’s something for everyone.

Cala Varques

Cala Varques: a paradise tucked away between cliffs

Cala Varques is, without doubt, another one of Mallorca’s best coves. The fact that it’s difficult to get to makes it a quiet haven tucked away from the hustle and bustle. Get ready to marvel at its unspoilt beauty and pristine natural surroundings everywhere you look. You’ll be stunned by its turquoise waters and fine white sand, as well as the rocky cliffs with no shortage of pine trees surrounding it. By the way, here you can unleash your more adventurous side, because Cala Varques has a network of sea caves that’ll make you want to explore. It’s no wonder that this environment is a true paradise for hippies from all over the world. Will you do it too on your holidays in Mallorca?

Cala Mondragó: protected nature and turquoise waters

Cala Mondragó is a paradisiacal spot located in the southeast of the island of Mallorca. It’s part of the Mondragó Natural Park, a protected area that is home to diverse flora and fauna, in particular birds. This stunning cove is characterised by its calm and shallow turquoise-blue waters that blend perfectly with the white sand.

As you can imagine, due to its location, it offers a unique natural environment, where the cliffs and pine forests are the stars of the show. What’s more, it has a picnic area, portable toilets, umbrella rental and other services that provide comfort without compromising the cove’s natural beauty. There’s no doubt that it’s perfect for sharing unforgettable moments outdoors with the family.

Cala de Deia

Cala Deià: serenity and jaw-dropping scenery

Cala Deià is a coastal jewel tucked away in the northwest of Mallorca, in the Tramuntana mountain range, in the picturesque town that bears its name to be exact. This small cove has a semicircular shape made up of pebbles and charming restaurants with sea views. It’s the perfect option to enjoy the serenity and beauty of the coast of Mallorca. However, bear in mind that this cove doesn’t have any services, so it’s probably not the best place to go with the family. But it is certainly worth a visit for its breathtaking scenery alone. No wonder people flock to it in droves in summer.

Cala d'Or: Mediterranean charm and crystal-clear waters

We travel to the southeast of the island, to discover Cala d’Or de Mallorca next to the town of Santanyi. This name refers to a small urban core made up of three neighbourhoods that have direct access to jaw-dropping natural coves. These are Cala Gran, Cala Serena, Cala Ferrera, Cala Esmeralda and the one that gives its name to the entire enclave, to name but a few.

Also known as Cala Petita o Caló de ses Dones, it’s 40 m long and 30 m wide. It’s surrounded by cliffs and a small headland, Punta Citerea. This environment protects the cove, resulting in calm waters, perfect for activities such as snorkelling or swimming and for kids to enjoy the sea with complete peace of mind.
