Discover the best beaches in Mallorca
Mallorca is a perfect destination for enjoying the sea. For example, Playa de Muro boasts 5.5km of fine sand and crystal-clear waters backed by a refreshing pine forest that provides shade throughout the day. This beach can be found between the beautiful beaches of Alcúdia and Ca’n Picafort in the north of the island, both of which are also exceptional options for families. Although it can get busier at weekends, the rest of the week is perfect for exploring at your leisure.
Another natural wonder is Son Serra de Marina Beach. This long, sandy beach has everything needed to make it the ideal family destination. But you should always check the weather, the sea conditions and the wind intensity before your visit. This beach sometimes gets strong winds, making it perfect for surfers looking to ride the waves.
Sa Coma and Cala Millor beaches in the east of the island provide a wide range of services and ideal conditions for family adventures. Sa Coma is located between Sa Punta de n’Amer, a protected nature reserve, and S’Illot. Cala Millor Beach is located next to the seafront promenade and is both accessible and safe. The same area is also home to Costa dels Pins, a great place to enjoy a swim and then cool off in the shade of the pine trees. Cala Bona Beach, just before the small port of the same name, is also a great place to visit if you want to get some photos of the essence of eastern Mallorca for your holiday album.
