Cala D'or

By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Our Editorial team's advice

Between Colonia Sant Jordi and Cala Mesquida is a series of isolated calas (coves), which are often hard to reach. Located along a rocky and rugged coast, you might feel like you're in Ireland when you visit Cala d'Or! This seaside resort on the southeast coast of Majorca has a lively town centre.

To see

The coves are beautiful: Cala d'Es Pou, Cala Mondrago, Cala Barca and Cala Egos.

To do

A glass bottom boat, the Starfish, offers trips between Cala Figuera and the traditional fishing village of Porto Colom, making stops at Cala Mondrago, Cala Barca, Porto Petro, Cala Egos and Cala d'Or, the seaside resort with many bars, restaurants and shops. We also recommend taking the small train (for a fee) that makes trips between the beaches throughout the day. In this area, the beaches are small rocky inlets. Space is limited and there are lots of people, so it can be hard to find somewhere to lay your towel. Despite this, coves are beautiful with their crystal clear water and fine sand.

pros

  • +  The untamed coastline and well preserved nature.
  • +  The hotels blend into the landscape.
  • +  The lively centre of Cala d'Or.

cons

  • -  The resort is far from Palma and the airport.
  • -  The crowds at the coves in high season.

To think about

In winter, life in the seaside resorts comes to a bit of a standstill. An advantage if you are looking for somewhere quiet, but for a more lively atmosphere, it's best to head to the old city of Palma during these months. On the other hand, the southeast coast comes alive in summer while managing to maintain its authenticity in a well preserved natural setting, unlike the urbanised area of Palma.

To avoid

Cala Mondrago is a superb beach, but one to be avoided in high season (May to early September), as you will have to park miles away and there is never any space to put your towel! Which slightly spoils the charm of the place...

To try

As an island, Majorca has many lobster, cuttlefish and fish soup recipes. Make sure you try tumbet, a kind of lasagne made from potatoes and aubergines with a tomato and pepper sauce. You will also find pork and cold cuts. For dessert, try the ensaimada, a spiral-shaped pastry.

To bring back

A wide variety of traditional Majorcan crafts. In addition to the famous, world-renowned pearls of Manacor, glass is still made here using traditional techniques, as are ceramics. You can also buy tapestries, embossed leather bags, wrought iron, copper and olive wood objects and herbal liqueurs.
