This beautiful Balearic Island has something for everyone, including plenty of Blue Flag award-winning beaches. Pine-fringed coves, sweeping bays, rugged inlets, lively or serene; they come in many forms but are all equally inviting. Majorca’s perfect for you if you love spending your holiday relaxing in the sun on some stunning beaches. Here’s my selection of the best beaches to visit in Majorca.
Playa de Muro
Located on the north coast, this Blue Flag beach is a great option for families. Its fine, golden sand appears never-ending and in some parts it’s formed dunes. Great for small children, you can paddle quite far out in its clear shallow water. Pine and juniper trees help give it its peaceful feel; it’s quieter than its neighbour, Alcudia.
A well-known and popular stretch of beach, this is a real beauty thanks to fine, white sand. Well-deserving of its Blue Flag status, its waters are calm enough for paddling and swimming and as it’s quite wide, so there are lots of sunbathing spots. Towards Playa de Muro, you’ll find quieter areas if that’s what you prefer.
This lively resort has an active beach to match. Backed by a palm tree-lined promenade, it appeals to families, the young and the young at heart as there’s a brilliant choice of water sports for thrill-seekers and water babies. Out of the water, the sand is soft, golden and plentiful so there’s always room to lay your towel and build sandcastles.
The beach here will be a real highlight of your holiday to Sa Coma on the east coast of Majorca. It’s no wonder it’s so popular, with a wide arc of fine white sand and crystal clear waters. Aside from topping up your tan and bathing in the shallow sea, you might be lucky enough to spot dolphins off the coast.
Take your pick from five small beaches sprinkled around this hotspot on the east coast of the island. Cala d’Or, Cala Esmeralda, Cala Ferrera, Cala Serena and Cala Gran are all picturesque little coves. As they’re natural, some have rocky edges with bathing platforms and steps into the inviting turquoise water. Pine trees shelter these areas, so the calm water is great for snorkelling.
