CALÓ DES MORO
Paradise exists and in Majorca it has a name of its own: Caló Des Moro. A small cove located in the south of the island lapped with the clearest waters in the whole Balearic Islands.

This small sandy area located between cliffs has a hue of crystal clear turquoise water. Just a 15 minute-walk from where you have to park your car will lead you to what is probably the best cove in Majorca.
Cala s’Almunia is a small, rocky cove with crystal-clear waters at the foot of an old fishermen’s refuge in the southeast of Majorca which is used nowadays as a bathing area.
Its charming and picturesque setting, thanks to the old fishermen’s houses built on the rocks and the intense blue of its waters, make it a great alternative to its neighbor, Es Caló des Moro, which can become too crowded during the summer months.
Cala s’Almunia is divided into two bathing areas. The first, next to the dock and the small houses that are built on the rocks, and the second, on the opposite side, where Cala es Maquer is located, a small stretch of sand and rocks.
Sa Calobra is located in the middle of Sierra de Tramuntana, in the municipality of Escorca. This beautiful beach is sheltered by two imposing cliffs that recreate a real cinematic landscape. It is one of the most recommended trips on the island, either along a beautiful winding road with spectacular views, by sea on a boat that leaves daily from Puerto de Sóller or on foot descending the Torrent de Pareis. A 100% recommended visit.
This beautiful fine sand beach is one of the essentials during your tourist experience in Majorcan territory. Cala Mondragó is located in an enclave of remarkable ecological value within the Mondragó Natural Park and very close to the town of Santanyí, one of the best beach areas on the island.
The beach, with totally crystal-clear and turquoise waters, extends its 75 metres of fine white sand between two rocky cliffs. It is surrounded by pine forests and rocks, offering a wonderful view. This makes it one of the best blue flag beaches in Majorca. And it is because of its protected territory status that this place avoided urban excesses and mass tourism and has been able to preserve its essence.
The spectacular Portals Vells beach, also known as Sa Caleta, is a natural environment of incredible beauty and scenic interest.
This natural wonder lays 9 km away from the Magaluf area. A sea inlet between the Xisclet and s’Estaca points, it is divided into several arms that end in this sandy area where three beaches are located: Portals Vells, Playa del Mago and Playa del Rey.
