Incredible beaches to enjoy in beautiful Mallorca

Between coves, beaches and mountains, Mallorca offers an incredible amount of beautiful nature and gorgeous settings. You will find turquoise waters everywhere on the island, with fine sandy beaches of different colors depending on the place you visit, and pine forests that are often surrounding the coastline. From wild coves to urbanized landscapes and seaside resorts, there is plenty to do, but here are the most beautiful beaches to see on this lovely Balearic Island.

S'Amarador and its turquoise waters

S'Amarador is part of the famous Cala Mondrago, one of the most beautiful and largest coves in Mallorca. Situated in a nature reserve, the beach stands out for its pink and ochre granite rocks. With incredible views from the cliffs, turquoise waters and fine sand, this beach has become a must visit place, and can sometimes be a victim of its own success.

Formentor beach, a picture perfect setting

In the extreme north of the island, the Formentor Peninsula offers views that could come from the Lord of the Rings. The winding 18-kilometer road starts from the port of Pollença and winds its way through the mountains, then plunging into the sea. The beach below, which is one kilometer long, is surrounded by a crescent bay lined with beautiful pine trees.

The sand dunes of Cala Mesquida

A little jewel lost in the middle of dunes, Cala Mesquida is located in the north-east of Mallorca. Classified as a nature reserve since 1991, it is known for its wild side between dunes and pine forests. The fine sandy beach, turquoise waters and marine fauna are very popular with tourists, and make it a perfect place to go snorkeling. Because it tends to be pretty windy, the beach is also very popular with surfers.

Es Trenc, a wild beach

The beautiful beach of Es Trenc is located in the south-east of Mallorca, and is over 2 km long. Travelers often compare it to the West Indies thanks to its white sandy beach, and shallow waters of deep blue colors, that make it look like a Caribbean lagoon. The beach can be described as pretty wild since it has no showers or restaurants, but the town of Campos is only 10 km away, which can be a good solution for tourists looking to enjoy a nice meal.

Cala Agulla, a heavenly bay

Cala Agulla is regularly mentioned as one of the most beautiful beaches on Mallorca. It is located in the north-east of the island, near the trendy resort of Cala Ratjada. It has been declared a "natural area of special interest" by the parliament of the Balearic Islands, and is located in a marine reserve with crystal clear waters.

Alcudia beach between coves, cliffs and beaches

Still in the north-east of the island, Alcúdia is renowned for its 30 kilometers coastline, divided between isolated coves, steep cliffs and sandy beaches. On the harbor side, you will find bars, restaurants and services that will make you enjoy the seaside even more. But for people looking for more calm, the other part near the beach of Muro, definitely is wilder. The bay of Alcúdia is ideal for water sports activities, and it combines beautiful nature, mountains and turquoise waters.

Playa Coll Baix, the impressive

Coll de Baix beach is located 7 kilometers from Alcúdia on the north coast of Mallorca, and really is a spectacular beach, framed by impressive cliffs falling into the sea. Nestled 445 meters above sea level, it features a 16th-century defense tower which watches over it. You will need to climb rocks in order to reach the beach, but then you will get to the black sand and pebbles, that truly make it a place out of time.

Es Cala Carbó, the paradisiacal

Es Carbo beach is located near Colònia de Sant Jordi, opposite the islet na Molina, on Mallorca's southeast coast. But you have to deserve the immense beach of fine sand as you will need to walk 2.3 kilometers from Platja d'es Port to Colonia Sant Jordi, or either walk 6 kilometers from Cap de ses Salines.

Cala Tuent, a shingle beach at the foot of mountains

Cala Tuent is a splendid cove at the foot of the Sierra de Tramuntana and the Puig Major, the highest point in the Balearic Islands, which stands at 1,445 meters high. After following a hiking trail, the cove appears in a natural and wild landscape of crystal clear water, pebbles, pine forest and a small olive grove.
