It is no coincidence that we have chosen Cala d’Or to open one of the offices for our rent a car in Majorca. This town, which belongs to the municipality of Santanyí, is one of the first tourist developments on the island and a clear nod to the typical Ibizan buildings, thanks to the presence of houses with whitewashed walls. In this nucleus you will not find a cove, but three: Cala Llonga, where the old garrison known as Es Fortí (1730) still stands; Cala Gran and Cala Petita, whose official name is Cala d’Or. To get there by car, you can take the Ma-19 road from Palma and the Ma-4013 from Calonge.
Also belonging to the municipality of Santanyí, in the southeast of Majorca, this cove is the ideal solution to say goodbye to stress. In this beautiful stone, Y-shaped beach, you will find tranquility, great cliff views and crystal-clear waters in which you will immerse yourself into another world. You should also pay attention to the photogenic fishing houses that dot the area. To get there, take the Ma 6102 road and, above all, do not get confused with the GPS, as there is another cove with the same name in the north of Majorca.
Located on the eastern coast of the island and very close to Cala Ratjada, this 90 m long cove, gravel and turquoise waters will not leave you indifferent. Without forgetting that it is very easy to get to with your rental car in Majorca, the area has all the hotel and restaurant services, making it a perfect choice for your weekend getaway. For your convenience, you also have a free apartment. Now, if you prefer, you can leave your vehicle at the port of Cala Ratjada, which we will talk about a little further down, and get there on foot. We highly recommend it, since its beach is not usually busy.
Along with the coves of Moltó and Cala Agulla, Cala Mesquida was declared a Natural Area of Special Interest (ANEI) by the Parlament de les Illes Balears in 1991. Surrounded by a suggestive landscape of pines and dunes, this place stands out for its almost virgin nature and for being a large cove. If you wish, you can enjoy a sunbed rental service and restaurant, and even a small nudist beach. This white sand cove, located in the northeast of Majorca, is easily accessible by car and has free parking spaces, although you have to take a 200m walk to the sea.
