7-Day guide to the best beaches in Mallorca by our Boutique Hotel
Mallorca is home to over 200 idyllic beaches, and unless you’re planning on upping sticks and enjoying the island life permanently, you’ll need to make your choice on which to visit. Portals Hills is here to offer some local secrets on the best beaches the island has to offer.
Day One: Playa Oratori de Portals Nous
Hop off the plane, check in to your boutique hotel in Mallorca and jump into your swimwear! Portals Nous boasts 250 metres of golden sands, crystalline waters and has access to some of the island’s best bars and restaurants. The beach is just a 7-minute walk from Portals Hills, so even the most tired travellers can take a dip on Day 1. We recommend Roxy’s Beach Bar where you can sip on sangria overlooking to glittering Mediterranean Sea.
Day Two: Sant Elm
With your batteries recharged, it’s time to take a ride to the south-west resort of Sant Elm. Dip your toes in the white sands and cool off in the turquoise waters. For the adventurous travellers, we recommend taking the boat to visit the isle of Dragonera. Named after its resemblance to a sleeping dragon, Sa Dragonera is a natural park with thriving colonies of lizards, gulls and falcons. A 30-minute drive from Portals Hills Boutique Hotel in Mallorca.
Day Three: Port Calanova
Your Mallorcan escape would not be complete without diving in to some of the most exciting watersports. Sitting perfectly between Portals Nous and the vibrant city of Palma de Mallorca, Port Calanova is the perfect spot for friends and family to have some fun in the sun. Ditch the flip-flops and try out Flyboarding, Jet Skiing, Kayaking and wide range of other activities available.
Day Four: S’Illot Beach
Having worked up an appetite from yesterday’s watersports, it’s time to treat those taste buds down at s’Illot Beach. Sheltered by pine trees and highly popular with the locals, this location offers the same inviting waters you’ll have grown accustomed to with the added bonus of the S’Illot Restaurant. Known for its paella, locally-caught fish and sumptuous salads, it’s the perfect place to sample the finest Mallorcan cuisine.
Day Five: Cala Torta
By now you’ll have noticed that Mallorca offers a laidback way of life and a refreshing environment full of open-minded locals. For those wanting to be at one with nature, wear as much or as little as you like as you join the locals on this beach where nudists are welcome but clothing is also allowed. Swap the sandals for a snorkel as your watch the tropical fish swim in the sapphire sea.
Day Six: Cala Mesquida
Based towards the North-East of the island and boasting one of the most diverse surroundings of all of the beaches Mallorca has to offer, Cala Mesquida is well worth the drive. Once you arrive, animal lovers can even explore the area on horseback. Saddling up in the sun will undoubtedly be an everlasting memory.
Day Seven: Purobeach Palma
The dreaded last day of the holiday has arrived, and like most people you’ll be conscious of your return leg home and won’t want to be carrying around your luggage all day. With this in mind, we recommend spending the day at Purobeach Palma. Just an 8 minute journey away from the airport, the beach club offers spectacular ambience, changing facilities and superb cuisine. End your holiday in style to the hottest summer tunes, ice-cold drinks and fresh bites to eat.
