Cala d'Or Holidays 

Cala d’Or holidays are an eclectic mix of the sleek and the chic, tempered with old-school charm. Cala d’Or started out as a small fishing village, which expanded to meet the rising demands of visitors and tourists. It’s kept much of its old charm, so among the gleaming hotels, you’ll find narrow backstreets housing quirky shops, traditional restaurants, and local bars. The jewel in the crown is the stunning marina, which adds a whiff of Cannes sophistication to the resort. If you’re a confirmed water lover then you’ll enjoy the range of marine activities on offer, including boat tours and kayaking. Cyclists can take advantage of the warm weather and excellent riding routes, or you can hit the beach with the family and get some serious sunbathing in. Don’t leave your holiday without enjoying a grilled sea bass meal in one of the scenic harbour restaurants.

Temperature: 9-26 °C

Cala d’Or enjoys a typical Mediterranean climate with hot summers and mild winters.

Flight time from UK:

Approximately two and a half hours, with transfer times from the airport of around an hour and a half

Cala d’Or is home to an extensive range of restaurants, serving cuisine from almost every corner of the globe. Whether you’re out with the family or want to enjoy a romantic meal with your significant other, there’s something to suit even the pickiest of palettes. If you fancy a taste of the traditional, hunt out one of the local tavernas and enjoy a selection of tapas. Fish-lovers are spoilt for choice, thanks to a super-fresh catch of the day landed at the town’s harbour. Fishing is still alive and kicking in Cala D’or and you can enjoy fresh seafood that’s practically straight off the hook! After dinner, relax in one of the waterfront bars, and treat yourself to a holiday cocktail, a Majorcan wine, or both!  For that special night out, there’s a great choice of upmarket and fine-dining restaurants by the marina, offering stunning a la carte dishes and a beautiful backdrop against which to enjoy them.

The beaches at Cala d’Or are an attraction in themselves. There are five, separate bays, known as ‘Calas’ and each has their own distinctive character, ranging from white, power-soft sands, to rocky limestone coves. Water taxi is the best and most-exciting way to get to them, giving you a spectacular view of the coast. Ride across the sea and stop off at the small bays of Cala Serena, Cala Esmeralda, Cala Gran, and Cala Ferrera for a day in the sun. Thanks to the clear, warm waters around the island, the area has become popular with divers and the safe conditions make it excellent for little ones who fancy some snorkelling. For more serious divers, there are diving trips from Cala Bona, which take you to the marine preserve off the coast at Cala Ratjada.

There’s a lot more to Cala d’Or than sea and golden beaches. No trip here would be complete without a visit to the marina, peppered with bobbing fishing boats and lavish yachts and sailboats. Further along the bay, near Porto Cristo, is one of the island’s most popular attractions: the famous Cuevas del Drach. A spectacular, subterranean network of caves and chambers, you can explore this incredible natural wonder on foot, before taking a boat ride across the underground Lake Martel. The amazing experience ends with a small classical concert, performed live in the caves, with the musicians performing from boats!
