Cala Millor is the largest resort on the Spanish tourist island of Majorca. Recent improvements to local roads means that Cala Millor is now only an hour away from Palma de Mallorca, the island’s bustling capital, so expect it to get even bigger and more popular with visitors! The resort is linked by a long promenade to Cala Bona, a short jaunt down the coast. Between the two places, and the range of hotels and bars and evening entertainment, you will find everything that you need for a week relaxing in the Spanish sun!

Sun, Sea and Sangria
Most people come to Majorca for the amazing beaches, pristine sea, and the chance to kick back and unwind from the stresses of home. Cala Millor has everything you need, especially if you are visiting as a family - it is more geared towards a quiet chilled out holiday break than the crazy nightlife available in Palma! The beach at Cala Millor stretches 6 km down the coast, along a wide bay, sheltered by a large headland at either end. The beach slopes very gently into the sea, so it’s really safe for kids to play. You can walk down the beach and over the headland to the next town along - Cala Bona. Cala Bona means Good Bay while Cala Millor means Better Bay!
Take a walk down the beach to Cala Bona - rather than being a purpose built resort, it is a traditional fishing village that has gradually expanded as tourism on the island has become more popular. It is a pretty place, with winding narrow streets (which is why it is better to walk there than drive!) and a lot of street cafes and bars, leading down to the working harbour.
Eating and Drinking
Majorca is very famous for its olive groves, and you can take tours to learn how the oil is extracted, and the history of oil on the island. Take a bottle of peppery local olive oil back to your apartment to add zing to your evening salad! If you are a wine connoisseur, you will also be interested in trying some of the local specialities - for red wine, make sure you try the Manto Negro or Syrah Monastrell, or the Prensal Blanc if white wine is your thing.Head to nearby Son Servera on a Friday morning for a wander around their large street market which has a great selection of locally produced fruit, meat and vegetables. If you are staying in a self-catering place, grab a basketful of provisions and head back to your villa to fire up the barbecue for a fun family meal! If you’re missing the taste of home, head to Cala Millor’s Sportsman’s Bar and enjoy a “belly buster breakfast”! They also have quiz nights, karaoke and various other pub entertainments.
To get to Majorca you should look for flights to Son Sant Joan International Airport, which is in the south of the island, about 70km from Cala Millor. There is coach transport available (but make sure you check timetables) or you can rent a car at the airport - if you are planning on exploring more of the island than just Cala Millor then we definitely recommend this option. However you choose to get around, you will enjoy your holiday on this lovely Spanish island!
