Embark on a holiday to Majorca and you’ll never be too far away from a beach. Wherever you are on the island, these sun-kissed sands offer a diverse choice – from secluded coves to busy beachfronts lined with bars and parasols. Kick back and relax on pristine white sands or dance until sunrise in one of Majorca’s lively beachside clubs; you can do it all on this island.

Whether you’re looking for an ideal spot for the little ones, the perfect place to jet-ski and windsurf or something a little quieter, we’ve compiled a list of some of the best beaches in Majorca for you to discover and experience.

Fun for the Family

Whether you’re looking for somewhere safe for the little ones to paddle or some great beachside attractions to keep the entire family happy, you’ll find what you’re looking for from a range of Majorca beaches. Located between the family-friendly resorts of C’an Picafort and Alcudia is the large beach at Playa de Muro. With golden sands and crystal clear waters stretching for over 5km, you’ll quickly see why this beach is so popular. A short stroll from your sunbed will welcome you to a selection of bars and restaurants – paella, patatas bravas and pizza are all served here. The shallow waters and white sands of Cala Gran Beach in Cala D’or ensures its status as a great family-friendly choice. Soak up the Mediterranean sun from your sunbed while the kids play in the water or peruse the many shops that feature alongside the beach with the whole family.

Sizzling Sands

Majorca beaches aren’t just for kicking back and relaxing – from bustling bars to busy nightclubs, they’re often a veritable hub of activity. The original setting of Majorca’s iconic party capital, Magaluf Beach is buzzing with activity during the summer. If you like your beaches loud and lively, this is the place to be. Situated just next door is Magaluf’s famous strip, so keep your eyes and ears readied for sun-kissed clubbers, fancy dress and the latest in club music offerings. Playa de Palma beach connects the two resorts of C’an Pastilla and El Arenal and is increasingly busy during the summer, with plenty of attractions close by to keep beach goers entertained. A promenade runs the length of the beach, lined with restaurants, shops and a cycle route for active holidaymakers.

Beach Life

Some of the best beaches in Majorca are secluded, tranquil spots offering a world away from busy resorts. S’Illot Beach in Sa Coma is often overlooked by holidaymakers in favour of bigger, busier beaches. This quiet pebble beach is located between Alcudia and Pollensa and is a popular choice with scuba divers thanks to its teeming marine life and fabulously clear waters. Pack a picnic for this one, though, as the facilities are limited. Cala Llombards Beach is in a stunning natural environment, flanked by two rocky outcrops adorned with striking pine trees, ensuring an idyllic spot to relax in. Keep look out for the quaint escars at the beachside, small traditional buildings used by fishermen to keep their boats and fishing tackle.

Water Thrills

Adrenaline junkies and adventurous types will enjoy the wealth of water sports available on Majorca beaches. Located on the eastern coast of Majorca, Cala Millor is the ideal spot for anyone looking to experience an action-packed break. Easily accessible via public transport, it is home to many nearby bars and restaurants and attracts sightseers and locals alike. Stretching over 1300m, it offers a variety of activities – from designated boat trips to diving. If you’re an expert water sports fanatic, pay a visit to the sheltered Bay of Port De Pollenca. Providing excellent conditions to learn both sailing and windsurfing, taster sessions and certificate courses are available and boats and boards are available for hire. The kids needn’t be left out, either – with many courses created especially for children.
