You can find Es Trenc on the southern coast of Mallorca. Far from being one of the island’s touristy beaches, Es Trenc is a shallow beach of only about 20 meters, however it is about 2 kilometers long. With no resorts nearby, Es Trenc tends to have a wild and natural feel. Even though it is off the beaten path, it is easily accessible by car or bus, and tourists can even rent lounge chairs and go to nearby bars for refreshments while enjoying the sun and sand of Mallorca’s own “Carribbean” Beach.
Cala Tuent is a magnificent beach on the northwestern coast of Mallorca. It is relatively small, but that doesn’t stop it from being one of Mallorca’s top beaches, due to its incredibly natural surroundings. Cala Tuent even has a view of Mallorca’s tallest mountain, Puig Major, which stands almost 1,500 meters high. The beach itself is composed of sand and pebbles and sits on a bay, so we recommend wearing water shoes if you want to avoid being uncomfortable. Although there are no nearby facilities, the scenic drive to Cala Tuent makes your day spent there worthwhile.
Alcudia Beach is located on the northern coast of Mallorca and is a very popular spot for summer travelers to stay. Alcudia is a white, fine sand beach. Because of its popularity, Alcudia has many different hotels and resorts for tourists to stay in, which are all along the “golden mile.” Not too far from Alcudia, you can also make a stop at Playa de Muro, which has the same white sand as Alcudia, but you can also enjoy all types of watersports with your family, as well as Mallorca’s largest wetland reserve called Albufera Nature Reserve.
On Mallorca’s southwestern coast is where you’ll find Calviá. It is also nearby the Serra de Tramuntana, a UNESCO World Heritage mountain site, making it a great spot for outdoor-lovers to go hiking, mountain biking, and exploring. Because of its central location on the island, Calvià is a great place for tourists to stay so that they can travel to Magaluf and Paguera. It is also a great place for the perfect balance between a beach and a historical vacation, since you can snorkel at its rocky beaches, and discover the town dating back to the 17th century.
Pollença is a rustic town on the northwestern coast of Mallorca. It is near the Port of Pollença that you’ll find the lovely beach this area of the island has to offer. It is about a mile long and can be found in a horseshoe shaped bay. The beach even overlooks the Tramuntana Mountains. We suggest heading to the town on a Sunday morning so you can wander through the fresh market and see locals having coffee near the Placa Major. Not only is Pollença’s beach lovely, but so is its historical town center.
Easily accessible from the capital city of Palma, Sóller is such a picturesque place on the island of Mallorca. Visitors can take an antique tram to the port in order to enjoy the sand and sun.

Visitors can take a dip in the clear, blue water of the horseshoe bay in this western city in Mallorca. Visitors can choose between Repic and Es Traves beach, the difference between the two being their size, as Repic is significantly larger than Es Traves.
The isolated location of Cala Varques entails a long drive for those who are willing to head to the eastern Mallorcan coast, but once there, the waves and seclusion of Cala Varques will blow you away.

The turquoise waves will provide travelers with a relaxing day alongside the beach. Afterwards, you can head to the nearest resort towns, being Porto Cristo or Cales de Mallorca, to finish off your Spanish evening.
