Cala Millor was made for holidays, quite literally. In fact, the resort was purpose-built beside a pretty, east coast beach to provide everything you could need for a wonderful week or two in the sun. And that means you won’t have a problem finding something to do as this resort has all the facilities you could possibly need for the perfect getaway.
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.
