Majorca’s most hidden coves
Mallorca is home to truly natural paradises that are perfect for relaxing on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. The beaches and coves that are spread out across the island are often visited by locals and tourists who wish to enjoy a relaxing day unwinding in an idyllic setting of fine white sand, or small pebbles. However, there are some coves that remain a mystery for those who only have a week to get to know Mallorca and visit all its most typical ‘must see’ spots. If you want to discover those coves that Majorcans keep as their special secret, see the following list with which you can explore the island’s most hidden coves and plan your trip to Majorca with all the advance knowledge you need.
- Cala en Basset. A cove very close to your adults only hotel in Calvià which is accessed through a beautiful route that begins in the fishing village of Sant Elm, goes up to the Tower of Cala en Basset and ends in this untouched pebbled cove. The great reward at the end of the trip is that you can observe Sa Dragonera from different angles.
- Es Coll Baix. A wonder in itself. Accessing this Majorcan cove seems like a wonderful adventure where you will discover part of the native vegetation of the Alcúdia area. Before you reach the cove, you can have a rest in a public shelter equipped with a picnic area and a fountain to cool off.
- Cove in Gossalba. Located in the area of Pollença, this beautiful untouched, pebbled cove is an ideal place to enjoy an intimate, peaceful and relaxing rest. You get to it by walking for half an hour over a pleasant route.
- Pilota Cove. This idyllic cove is located between Calas de Majorca and Cala Romantica, forming a beautiful stop on the road only known by a few. Frequented by hikers, this small paradise is an ideal stop along the way as you continue discovering the outskirts of Calas de Majorca.
- Cala Màrmols. A nudist beach which can be reached on foot from the Ses Salines Lighthouse and Cala s’Almunia, from which you can also visit the Caves of Drach.
- Cala d’Egos. One of the show coves located a few kilometres from your 5 star hotel in Port Adriano, specifically in Puerto de Andratx. In about 20 minutes on foot you will be able to reach this small rocky beach that normally not many people have access to.
- Cala Castell. Framed by the typical natural setting of Pollença, this partially wild beach is one of the most recommended for diving. Although to access this cove you have to walk 10 kilometres on foot, the effort is worth it, since you can relax in an uncrowded cove of crystal clear waters.
These are some of the coves that very few visitors to Majorca know about and that perfectly sum up the true essence of the island.
