Explore the charming small cove of Cala Egos

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. Cala Egos is a charming small cove bordering a residential area and three hotels: the Palia Dolce Farniente, the Marina Skorpio and the Marina Corfu, just 2 miles from the seaside resort of Cala d'Or on the east coast of Majorca. Although it does have to be said that these three hotels do rather spoil the charm of the place. This tiny cove is lovely, but gets crowded very quickly. The sand is fine and white, the water is clear, and you can still touch the bottom quite far from the shore. A glass bottom boat, the Starfish, takes you to the beautiful Cala Mondrago with its crystal clear waters. Those who love water sports and sailing should visit Cala d'Or Beach, just 2 miles away.

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.

cons

  • -  The resort is far from Palma and the airport.

To think about

To enjoy the many coves with turquoise waters that stretch the length of the seaside resort, you should travel by bus (which stops close to the hotel) or car. Those who love water sports and sailing should visit Cala d'Or Beach, just 2 miles away.

To avoid

Cala Mondrago is a superb beach, but one to avoid 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 detracts from the charm of the place.

To try

Grilled fish, squid and octopus...

To bring back

Olive oil and Majorca pearls.
