Cala San Vincente is a Small Resorts

Aug 18, 2007
Cala San Vincente is one of the smallest resorts on the island of Majorca and if only to increase its own self esteem, its recognised by the three of names of Cala San Vicente, Cala San Vincente, or Cala Sant Vicente.

The village itself is part of the municipal district of Pollensa on the North West coast of the island, approximately 60km north of the capital Palma and 5km North West of Pollensa old town.

Even before the arrival of the tourists to Majorca in the early 1960s, the municipal district of Pollenca was one of the wealthiest areas on the island. Traditionally this part of Majorca has strong links with both farming and fishing and even today Cala San Vincente is still essentially a fishing village that has made limited concessions to the islands tourist trade.

One of these concessions being, that you share the beach with the local fishermen who still use part of it for repairing their nets and storing goods. Much of the village is residential, and you will always have the feeling of being an invited, but welcome guest, to another way of life.

The resort has three beaches, Cala Barques is the largest and prettiest of the three, offering visitors the choice of a few small restaurants, bars and shops, and theres usually ample sun beds, beach umbrellas and boats for hire there too.

From Cala Barques if you take the path around the rocky knoll youll find the tiny beach of Cala Clara. This beach, although being less than 100m from Cala Barques, is often very crowded during the summer due to its close proximity to one of the few hotels in the resort.

Finally, the third beach called Cala Molins, further round the sizeable headland, is the most popular beach for bathers due to its fine sands. What most visitors may not know, and perhaps may not care, is each year this beach is supplemented with imported sand.

The sea around Cala San Vincente is beautifully clear and from all of the beaches the views over towards the cliffs of the Formentor peninsula are spectacular.

Cala San Vincente has exceptional coastal and rural scenery, and are more suited to mature couples and families with older children. This is certainly not the place to go if you have walking difficulties, or are looking for clubs that are open all night.

A place to relax.
