Cala Millor holidays

Cala Millor translates to ‘better bay’, which is exactly what it is. On your holiday to Cala Millor, you can expect beautiful Blue Flag beaches, heaps of natural beauty and family favourite attractions. The beauty is that you can choose to explore historical sites or simply laze on the shore. Whether you’re looking for a family holiday or a romantic break for two, there’s lots to do in this fantastic destination. 

Things to do

There are lots of things to do in Cala Millor. Whether you’re heading to the Spanish resort with a loved one or the little ones, your days will be full of fun in the sun. From history, to scenery and everything in between, you’re sure to find a piece of Cala Millor that’s perfect for you. The beach is beautiful, with powder fine white sands and turquoise waves. The generous coastline gives everyone enough room to lay their towel, or if you’re feeling more adventurous, why not try your hand at one of the many watersports on offer? The surrounding streets are lined with authentic restaurants, traditional English pubs and cool cocktail bars, meaning that there’s something for everyone to enjoy on your holiday to Cala Millor.

You’ll also be in a perfect location for days out and sightseeing, as there’s a lot to see and do in this part of Majorca, including the Dragon Caves (Cuevas del Drach), probably the island’s most famous natural attraction.

Beach life and sea life

As well as its own sandy beach, Cala Millor is within easy reach of a lovely little beach at Cala Bona, you can walk or cycle there along the seafront promenade. It’s quieter there, as Cala Bona is smaller and more traditional and also a former fishing village. If you’re into water sports, though, stick to Cala Millor where there are plenty of them there for you to try.

The Mediterranean Sea around Majorca is rich with colourful marine life, even coral, so you might like to go snorkelling, scuba-diving or on a glass-bottomed boat. For a much wider range of sea life (and other animals), the Marineland Aquarium is a great day out, especially for families.

History and culture

Cala Millor may not have an old town but it still has history. Before it was a beach resort, it was a wild stretch of coast, and part of it has been preserved in the peaceful Punta de n’Amer Nature Reserve on one of the headlands that protect the bay.
But until you’ve been to the city of Palma de Mallorca, you’ve missed out on the crowning glory of the island’s historical and cultural heritage. Alongside the art galleries and museums is some fascinating architecture, especially the cathedral with its interiors redesigned by Gaudi.
