The most beautiful beaches in Mallorca

One of the main reasons why so many holidaymakers choose the Balearic island as a travel destination are the beautiful bays and beaches on Mallorca . There are well over 100 seaside resorts on the island. Most of the beaches are fine sandy beaches with crystal clear water. There are also some pebble and rocky beaches. You have a large selection, especially in the tourist strongholds. But also or especially away from the party metropolises there are wonderful places to relax in the sand and water. Mallorca’s south, north, northeast and east boast the most beautiful beaches on the island. Go on a journey with me, I’ll introduce you to Mallorca’s beaches in detail.

Es Trenc in the south

If you are on holiday in the south of Mallorca, you should not miss the Es Trenc beach section . The finest sand awaits you over a length of six kilometers, inviting you to relax. Alternatively, you can rent a lounger and treat yourself to a refreshment in the sea in between. Are you fans of nudism? Es Trenc also has a nudist area ready where you can tan seamlessly.

Cala Pi de la Posada in the north

Danger! This refers to the beach near Cap Formentor, not the bay in the southwest of the island. No matter where you are on holiday in Mallorca, you should definitely take the route to Cala Pi de la Posada Bay (also known as Platja de Formentor ). It is one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. White sand and real Caribbean flair are guaranteed here.

Cala Sa Nau in the southeast

If you want to relax on the beach like the locals, you have to go to the small bay of Cala Sa Nau . The way is a bit more complex, as the beach is between forests, cliffs and caves, but it is definitely worth it. If you’ve had enough of sunbathing and swimming, you can explore the area on hikes. Legendary beach parties are also held here on the weekends.
