The perfect combination of sun-filled beaches, stylish shops and chic eateries can all be found in the sophisticated Majorcan resort of Cala d’Or. This charming destination on the east coast of the island has grown from its early beginnings as a fishing village and is now filled with visitors exploring what the town has to offer. However, it has held on to its traditional Spanish roots. Using your villa in Cala d’Or as a base, you can make your way around the cobbled streets and stroll around the marina before heading to the beach. There are seven coves and some small, yet perfectly formed, beaches here. We have several properties that are located close to these white sands, so your villa holiday in Cala d’Or can be spent taking in the sea views before you enjoy a dip in the pool. Should you be travelling with the whole family, there are plenty of activities available to keep the children busy including mini go-karts, trampolines and play areas. Plus, our range of hand-picked accommodation includes a choice of family-friendly, centrally located large villas. In Cala d’Or you can relax and unwind or enjoy some quality family time in the sun.
Cala D’or might be one of the island’s more sophisticated holiday resorts, but it still knows how to let its hair down and party in a low-key sort of way! Although much of the town is very family oriented with specials menus for children, for example, there is no shortage of cocktail bars, clubs, karaoke and live music, with most places on the main strip staying open until the early hours.
If you don’t want to cook at your villa, eating out will be one of the highlights of your Villa Plus holiday in Cala D'or. As you would expect, seafood is a major component of the menus here, especially the more expensive offerings around the harbour. You can try some excellent local dishes such as shrimp paella and squid in its own ink. The best value is often to be found at the smaller family-run places that will give you a huge welcome and are happy to advise you on your choice of tapas and other traditional Spanish food. If you want more variety, you can find Italian, Mexican, Indian, Chinese and British eateries. If you crave a burger, don’t fret, there are also plenty of fast food restaurants. Then there are the cafes where you can enjoy the great Majorcan desserts and cakes.
If you prefer more remote, less crowded sunbathing, it is worth visiting The Mondrago Natural Park, famous for its fine white sandy beaches, which is only twenty minutes’ drive away down tiny winding lanes lined with intricate stone walls. You can really get back to nature here as the whole area is protected from development. Two beaches, S'Aramador and Mondrago are linked by a paved promenade. Despite the remoteness of the place, each beach has its own bar and there is also a visitor centre in the car park, open from 9am to 4pm. The sea here is a vivid turquoise blue that hardly looks real. There are a number of trails along the coastline, and plenty of interesting birds and other wildlife to keep you absorbed.
