Cala D'or - Majorca Hotels

Mini guide to Cala D'or - Majorca

     

The purpose-built resort of Cala D'Or was founded as an artists' colony in the 1930s and is continually expanding its attractive low-rise white buildings and narrow pine tree-lined streets. Additionally, like most resorts on Majorca, Cala D'Or underwent a big burst of expansion in the 1970s.

The major attractions of Cala D'Or are its beaches. The town is blessed with seven fine stretches of sand. The largest and most popular is Cala Gran, measuring 40m by 100m. The depth of the inlets and the sheltered nature of the coves ensure that bathers are protected from the strong seas of the eastern coast; additionally, the waters here are shallow and good for swimming.

For daytime active pursuits, try the numerous water sports on offer. You can play golf on the nearby courses, or hike on the clearly marked trails in the countryside by the resort. If you seek more relaxing pursuits, walk in the vibrant pedestrian zone north of Cala Gran beach. Many of the restaurants and cafés are concentrated in this area, making it a great place to people-watch.

You will also find expensive boutiques and leather shops, as well as many handicraft shops and a few galleries in this area. Restaurants, as you would expect, focus on seafood, although there are also many Spanish favourites such as paella and tapas on offer.

Excursions from Cala D'Or include: the caves of Drach and Ham; the main town of Palma, with its historic sites; the monastery at Luc; and the hiking and scenery of the northwestern mountains.

Visitors arrive at Son Sant Joan International Airport, eight kilometres from Palma. From here, buses run into Palma and shuttles depart for Cala D'Or. Most resorts around the island also run their own shuttles. Ferries run daily to and from Barcelona and Valencia, arriving in Palma.
