Cala Millor is a Popular Destinations

Aug 17, 2007
Situated on the north east coast of Mallorca, Cala Millor is a popular and busy holiday destinations.

The modern resort of Cala Millor which translates into English as the better bay is on the islands rugged east coast and is separated from its more quiet and traditional neighbour Cala Bona the good bay by a small rocky headland.

Most of Majorcas east coast is dotted with tiny creeks and coves, however, the beach at Cala Millor stretches for more than 6km along a wide sheltered bay which is protected by two large unspoilt headlands. Cala Millor offers some of the finest beaches in Mallorca, and after you have finished your hard days sunbathing there is a host of activities in the town to keep you occupied in the evening, along with some of the finest restaurants in the area. The beach here is considered by many to be one of the best on the island, with clear water and gently sloping sands. Parasols and sun beds can be hired at various points along its length, along with the usual selection water sports activities, including a windsurfing school.

The resort has a good selection of shops, but in all fairness to the town, they do tend to lack any great variety in the range of products they each stock. If you do venture beyond your sun bed, local markets are held every Friday in nearby Son Servera, further a field to the north in Arta on a Tuesday, and 20km inland at Manacor every Monday. For those of you who have been to the island before you would recognise that Manacor is also the home of the Mallorcan Pearl industry.

Cala Millor is without doubt the livelier and has a wide selection of bars and discos providing evening entertainment to supplement that provided by the hotels. Although Cala Millor has a quite a wide appeal, it is still perhaps more suited towards the traditional family holiday than those 18 to 30s who are possibly looking for all night clubs and karaoke bars. Most of the British Bars offer night time entertainment like quizzes, bingo, race nights, karaoke, plus live entertainers.

Public transport along all of the east coast is limited so it may be worthwhile considering car hire, especially if you want to visit the nearby Caves of Drach and so avoiding the Tour Operators day trip charges. For those visitors who consider public transport an adventure and not a challenge, the local bus operator Aumasa does actually run a service over to Alcudia on the north west coast of the island, and even over to Soller, which is deep in the Sierra de Tramuntana mountain range. Over the years many visitors to Majorca have asked us for information on the bus timetables, although our general advice is the sit and wait, and enjoy the sun, Aumasa do actually publish what they claim to be the timetable their buses run to but luck is what is needed.
