So, live like a local with this Mallorca’s hidden secrets guide.
Caló des Màrmols
Caló des Màrmols is a remote sandy beach far away from the busy resort crowds. This idyllic 40 metre stretch of paradise is surrounded by white cliffs and vegetation making it the perfect natural escape.
Crystal clear waters and a favorite with the locals, Caló des Màrmols is the perfect location for a beach getaway. The beach itself is a bit difficult to access, with a 5.5km walk from the lighthouse providing a challenging hike for many.
Access can also be attained by boat. The difficult voyage to the beach is made all the more special once you arrive and find your own piece of heaven.
This beautiful stretch of sand is situated just next to Colonia de Sant Jordi. Surrounded by azure blue waters and white sand this picture postcard paradise will provide you with the ultimate relaxation getaway spot.
Like most beautiful getaway spots it’s a little bit of a trek to reach it. A 2km walk from Colònia de Sant Jordi ensures that the beach remains tranquil and calm. A must see!
Playa de Formentor
Playa de Formentor is a wonderful, secluded bay to the north of Mallorca. With the famous Formentor Hotel standing just next to the beach, it’s well worth the visit.
This area was famously visited by Winston Churchill, Sir Peter Ustinov, Grace Kelly, Charlie Chaplin and Edward Windsor. You will be amazed by this stunning hotel.
A mountainous backdrop and tranquil gardens facing an unspoilt bay and hills make you feel a part of the Mallorca jet set.
Serra de Tramuntana
This mountainous range running southwest-north east of the island forms a wonderful backbone for the island. The Tramuntana Range was awarded World Heritage Status by UNESCO for its physical and cultural significance.
This area of natural beauty has everything to offer; pine covered slopes that drop into the sea with forested areas adding a splash of green to the surroundings are truly spectacular.
The fresh air and stunning views are enough to make this spot a must-see on your tour of Mallorca.
If you are looking for a beautiful town to explore then look no further than Puerto Soller. With its horseshoe harbour along the west coast of the island and surrounded by the amazing Tramuntana mountains, this town manages to capture the beauty of both the mountains and the sea.
The bay has a fantastic promenade where you will find cafes, restaurants and shops lining the streets and sandy beach. It has a great mix of traditional and contemporary buildings making it the perfect blend of old and new.
Set in a beautiful valley of orange groves between the mountains and the sea, Sóller is a wonderful traditional Mallorcan town with little to do but wander the cobbled streets or to sit outside and soak up the atmosphere in one of its many bars and restaurants.
A perfect hidden gem!
