Flora and fauna

The natural, cultural and ecological treasures to be found at Punta de n’Amer, a headland nestling between Sa Coma and Cala Millor, have earned it the status of a Natural Area of Special Interest.

Stretching out some 200 hectares, this is many landscapes in one, featuring sand dunes, farming land and pine and juniper groves. In addition to the area’s typical plants, such as the lliri blanc de marina (white sea lily), visitors should also keep an eye out for other living jewels such as the fonoll marí (samphire) and the saladina (a type of limonium).

And when it comes to wildlife, this area is home to mammals such as the ratolí de rostoll (wood mouse) and wild rabbit, or a variety of bird species including the corb marí (cormorant), the busqueret (Balearic Warbler) and the virot (Cory’s Shearwater).


The local cuisine is renowned for its mouth-watering flavours and variety. Traditional dishes include frit de porc (stir-fried pork, potatoes and peppers), tumbet (Majorca’s version of ratatouille), arròs brut (a meat and vegetable rice dish) and sopes mallorquines (vegetables and meat simmered slowly with bread to soak up the stock).

Sobrassada is Majorca’s best-known cured meat, made from pork, bacon and paprika.

When it comes to sweets and pastries, nothing can compare with a delicious ensaïmada. Wound round to form a spiral shape, this exquisite pastry can be filled with a wide range of ingredients, such as cream, chocolate, confectioner’s custard and sweet pumpkin jam. Wine is also deeply rooted in the island’s cultural heritage; two regions have been awarded a Designation of Origin: Binissalem and Pla i Llevant.

History and culture

Situated just a few kilometres from Cala Millor, S’Illot is one of the finest Talaiotic sites to be found on the island, although the caves of Ses Crestes and Ses Pedreres provided shelter and refuge for even earlier inhabitants, who lived there around 1500 BCE.

A 17th century square fortified tower stands at one end of Punta de n’Amer. Formerly part of the coastal defences, today it houses a small museum and offers visitors breathtaking sea views.

Leisure and free time

Those of you eager for action will have great fun with the endless activities on offer in Cala Millor: horse riding, tennis, squash, padel tennis, football, karting, golf, shooting, scuba diving and fishing are just some of the options available to visitors, who can also explore the region’s many cycling trails.

And after all that action, it’s time to let others do the entertaining: the Sa Màniga Auditorium has a packed programme of cultural events tailored to suit lovers of dance, theatre and music.

The beaches and surroundings

Lying on Majorca’s east coast, Cala Millor boasts an immense stretch of sand bathed by shimmering blue water and backed by a wide promenade that is ideal for a relaxing evening stroll as the sun sets.

More than two kilometres of fine sand make this an irresistible draw for tourists, together with modern facilities and all the amenities they could wish for in what is one of the island’s best kept resorts.

Next to Cala Millor beach is the small fishing village of Cala Bona, flanked by fabulous beaches such as Es Ribell, Sa Marjal and Costa dels Pins, in an area that also boasts a host of natural delights.
