Cala Millor Majorca

Filed under: Balearic Islands,Spain — Tags: , , , — needahand @ 6:52 pm

Cala Millor Majorca – One of the busier and bolder resorts of Majorca’s east coast, Cala Millor is one to avoid if you don’t like a vibrant nightlife and the hustle and bustle of North-European holidaymakers out for a good time. It is however a good place to head if you like that kind of resort or if you are prepared to put up with it in order to enjoy the fine sandy beaches, the great climate and a good choice of facilities. Certainly worth a visit just to see how you like it, Cala Millor is a must visit for youngsters out for a good time whilst still enjoying the sand and the sun.

Sa Coma Majorca

A town on the eastern coast of Mallorca, Sa Coma is in the Sant Llorenc des Cardassar district and is close to the equally popular resorts of Cala Bona and Cala Millor. Its biggest attraction is its superb sandy beach which attracts holidaymakers like bees to a honey pot, each day you will find hundreds of sun worshippers basking in the sunny weather and topping up their tans. Well loved by Germans, Brits and the Spanish themselves, Sa Coma’s economy revolves almost entirely around tourism, with seafront hotels, self-catering apartments and detached holiday villas, peppering the area. Sa Coma even attracts a celebrity or two, with Paris Hilton owning a holiday home there, it being one of her favourite places. Not really a hot spot for shopping, you will only really find the ubiquitous supermarkets, and holiday shops in Sa Coma, though what is there is ample for the needs of the average tourist in Majorca. For an hour or two away from the beach, you could head to the small safari park (the Auto Safari Zoo), located just outside the town. Sa Coma is around 70 kilometres from majorca’s airport.

Cala Bona Majorca

Filed under: Balearic Islands,Holidays,Spain — Tags: , , , , — needahand @ 12:42 pm

Another Majorca fishing village, turned holiday resort, Cala Bona is a good spot for water sports enthusiasts, and its appeal to holidaymakers was increased by the addition of three man-made beaches. Somewhat quieter than its better known neighbour Cala Millor, Cala Bona (which means “Good Bay”), provides an ideal location for a laid back family holiday. When the weather is sunny, the place to be is the beach, and with 3 to choose from, you should be able to find a decent spot. While you are staying in Cala Bona, take some time out for a trip on the glass-bottomed boat, and get an interesting insight into the varied sea life to be found off this part of the Majorca coast.

Cala Millor Majorca

Filed under: Balearic Islands,Holidays,Spain — Tags: , , , — needahand @ 4:05 pm

Located to the north of Porto Cristo on the east coast of Majorca, the beach resort of Cala Millor is one of the most popular holiday destinations on the island. Boasting superb beaches (the main beach is over a mile long), and a good range of facilities, Cala Millor is a great choice for a family holiday, of course another factor which is a major attraction is the wonderful Cala Millor weather, which is very reliable during the months May to October. Tourism began in Cala Millor as far back as the 1930’s, though the main boom did not gain pace until the 1970’s and 80’s. Worth a visit whilst in Cala Millor is the wildlife park, Safari Zoo, located about a mile to the south of the resort centre. Cala Millor Map.

Majorca Resorts Cala Bona

Filed under: Balearic Islands,Holidays,Spain,Travel — Tags: , , , — needahand @ 12:37 pm

If travelling to the east coast of Majorca for your holidays this year, you may want to consider staying at the pretty little resort of Cala Bona (which means “Good Bay”). Less well known than its bigger neighbour Cala Millor, Cala Bona has an attractive harbour and its original network of narrow streets and alleys from its former days as a small fishing village. Lacking a real sandy beach , Cala Bona may not suit all holidaymakers, and if it is a beach holiday that you prefer you may be better advised to head for Cala Millor or one of Majorca’s other big coastal resorts. Cala Bona still has some small beaches, located in little rocky bays and inlets along the coast and it is a good base for exploring the east coast of Majorca and its many attractions. Cala Bona Map.
