The 10 most beautiful beaches in Mallorca

Mallorca has 550 km of stunning coastline and countless beaches and bays enticing you to take a refreshing dip in the turquoise blue Mediterranean.

The editors of Mallorca.com have scoured the island and found the 10 most beautiful beaches for you. Some lie hidden in small inlets while others stretch for miles along the coast.

Playa de Muro MallorcaPlatja de Muro - unique location
Five and a half kilometres of fine sand and turquoise waters make Platja de Muro on the north coast of Mallorca one of the most beautiful beaches the island has to offer. The beach stretches directly in front of S'Albufera nature reserve in the bay of Alcúdia. The dunes behind it are bordered by pine groves and umbrellas and sunbeds are available for rent. Water sports and other recreational activities are the main source of amusement here. Beach volleyball nets are stretched on the beach and windsurfers and banana boats make the most of the clear waters.  "Chill-out restaurant La Playa" provides live music and some tasty bites and the elevated beach bars have magnificent views of the sea.

Cala Torta - swimming in the nature reserve
Embedded in a mountainous landscape with pine forests lies the bay of Cala Torta in the northeast of Mallorca. The wide sandy beach near Cala Ratjada stretches along the coast for 130 metres. The path to Cala Torta takes you on a bumpy road through a nature reserve. You do not have to take food with you because a chiringuito bar provides you with snacks and drinks. The turquoise water is crystal clear but there are no deck chairs or parasols for rent here. Be warned though that if you swim out too far, the currents can become strong and put even a strong swimmer in danger.

Cala Sa Nau - insider tip on the east coast
With pale green pine forests and rugged cliffs with caves on both sides the small bay of Cala Sa Nau is a picturesque bay with a long sandy beach. The Mediterranean ambience is unique, even if there is no view of the open sea. Cala Sa Nau can be reached by car via dirt tracks and parking is limited. The beach has a small beach bar and sun umbrellas and sun loungers are available for rent.

Platja Es Trenc - family friendly sandy beach
Platja Es Trenc is a seven-kilometre-long sandy beach at the southernmost tip of the island and is considered by many visitors to the island to be the most beautiful in Mallorca. Comparisons with the Caribbean are quite apt, even if no coconut palms line the shore areas. Es Trenc is located in the middle of a nature reserve and is bordered by sand dunes to the rear. At some sections straw umbrellas and sunbeds are available for rent and at Ses Covetes there are a handful of beach bars. The fine sandy beach slopes gently into the sea and is particularly family friendly. Nudists have their own separate section of beach nearby.

Beach Agulla MallorcaCala Agulla - heavenly bay
Cala Agulla is located on the northeast coast of Mallorca in the municipality of Capdepera. This bay is made up of bright, sandy beaches and has some rocky sections as well. The bathers’ paradise is surrounded by wooded hills. Due to its location in a nature reserve, there is a refreshing lack of development behind the beach. In summer, Cala Agulla gets crowded. One of the reasons is its easy access by by car. The bay is signposted on the road from Capdepera to Cala Ratjada and there is a large car park near the beach. On-site you can rent surfboards, pedal boats and water skis.

Cala Figuera - rough beauty
In the far north of Mallorca lies Cala Figuera - a rough beauty on the Cap Formentor peninsula. The small bay is boxed in by rugged rocks and there is no sand as the beach has a mixture of fine and coarse pebbles. The rocks are wonderful for snorkelling and getting a glimpse of an iridescent underwater world. If you come to Cala Figuera to dive, you should come by boat, because the way down to the stone beach goes through rugged cliffs and sharp rocks. Beautiful views of Mallorca's rocky north coast can be seen from the surrounding cliffs. In summer, Cala Figuera can get crowded, but in low season you will always find a spot on the surrounding plateaus.

Cala Varques - quiet beach paradise
Cala Varques is situated between Porto Cristo and Cales de Mallorca on the east coast of the island, the Cala Varques. With a length of 90 metres, the bay is not one of the largest on the island, but the picturesque surroundings make the beach one of the most beautiful in Mallorca. Like an ancient amphitheatre, the dark rock boxes the bay in. The white sandy beach is 50 m wide and is close to a pine forest and a grotto. A side bay has a nudist colony, which is tolerated here and every now and then you can observe free-climbers up in the cliffs.

Beach Sa Calobra MallorcaSa Calobra - encased between the rugged cliffs
Surrounded by towering cliffs, the small bay of Sa Calobra is located on the Tramuntana coast of Mallorca and looks spectacular especially from the water side. Sa Calobra is squeezed in between two natural rock walls, and the Torrent de Pareis stream flows through into the Mediterranean in winter. The 30 m long sandy / pebble beach is a quirk of nature, which can be quite enticing for a swim or snorkel after the arduous journey along a narrow but spectacular winding road that rises some 800 m in altitude before you finally reach the rock tunnel which you have to go through on foot to reach the beach.

Cala Llombards - white sand and pines
At the mouth of the Son Amer torrent you will find Cala Llombards on the southeast coast of the island. The beach is some 150 m long and 50 m wide. The sand looks like snow from a distance as it sparkles in the bright sunlight. The sand stretches to a shady pine grove, which borders the bay as you head inland. Euphoric rhythms are belted out of the speakers of the beach bar as locals and tourists alike sip long drinks or beers under the shades of the parasols, which can be rented out along with sun loungers in the high season.

Cala Pi - the romantic sandy bay
The romantic sandy bay of Cala Pi on the southwest coast has largely been spared from mass tourism. The 150 m long sandy beach stretches out at the end of a fjord-like inlet. Overgrown rocks enclose the bay and the water glows emerald and turquoise in the sunshine. Sun loungers and parasols are available for rent in the summer months although there are no dining options on the beach - however the town of Cala Pi does have some small restaurants and cafés, which can be reached via a steep staircase. The sheltered location of Cala Pi attracts many amateur sailors whose white yachts bob up and down on the water on warm summer days.
