Top 5 Coves in Mallorca

Mallorca is an authentic Mediterranean paradise. With over 250 beaches, a long list of charming seaside and mountain villages and a lively capital city it is the perfect place to live or to visit. And if you’re a sea-lover and have been living or visiting Mallorca for quite some time, you’d probably already know that it is really hard to choose only five coves, as you will probably run into one marvellous hidden spot after another. We’ll try our best to share all about our favourite Mediterranean coves. Let’s go! 


Cala Mesquida - white sand and turquoise waters near Artà 

If you’re looking for the ultimate Mediterranean experience Cala Mesquida is exactly the place you’ll want to visit. It is definitely one of the most magical places of Mallorca: located 12km from the old town of Artà and 7 km from Capdepera, fine white sand embraced by rocks, dunes and pine trees create a unique natural environment. The area surrounding Cala Mesquida and the northern town of Artà is charming, quiet and perfect for everyone looking for a villa, finca or house combining the best of a seaside and country location at the same time. Discover our wide range of properties in the area! 


Cala Sant Vicenç - the perfect stop on the way from Pollença to its port 

In the North of Mallorca, there are two towns and their ports drawing all the attention of visitors and home buyers on the island: we’re talking about Pollença and Alcúdia. Both of them have a beautiful old town where you can easily get lost wandering around its cobblestone streets and both of them have a beautiful port a couple of minutes away. And if you’re on the way from Pollença to Port de Pollença you will be able to stop by ‘Cala San Vicente’, a former fishing village with three little coves to discover: Cala Molins, Cala Clara and Cala Barques. Spend an afternoon hopping from one cove to another and have an afternoon drink in the village to wrap up a perfect day. If you happen to fall in love with the area you can check out our spectacular villas, fincas, houses and apartments for sale or for rent in the area of Pollença and Alcúdia.
