Cala Formentor Beach, North Mallorca

A wonderful strip of sandy beach in the north west of Mallorca

Cala Formentor is one of the most beautiful spots on the island and, as a result, is very popular. It's situated in the north west of Mallorca.

With a stunning backdrop of pine forest and views to the mountains, it's easy to understand the attraction. The turquoise blue sea is crystal clear and the beach is made from very fine white sand. It does stretch for around a kilometre so you may be able to find a spot to spread out. Trees overhang the beach so there is plenty of shade in the hot summer months.

There are lifeguards on duty here as well as other services and facilities available including watersports, restaurants, bars, sunbeds for rent, showers and toilets.

You can read more about the beach at Formentor in our Beach Review or about the time we took a Boat Trip from Port Pollensa to Formentor Beach.

Setting & location

Cala Formentor is situated approximately 7km to the north-west of Port de Pollença.

Water safety & clarity

The beach is quite narrow at eight metres deep so, despite the shallow clear sea, this beach is not so ideal for children. Facilities are excellent, with toilets, showers, lifeguards and sunbeds and parasols to hire.

Beach quality

Cala Formentor boasts the most beautiful fine white sand.

Watersports to do

Pedalos are also available to rent and, at the far end of the beach, you can hire jetskis. It is also a popular beach for windsurfing, stand up paddle boarding and kayaking.

Book My Watersports


There is a public bus service and a car park (€5 parking fee), or a more relaxing way to get there is to take a boat from Port de Pollenca. The bay is also popular with private boats thanks to the beautiful surroundings and excellent anchoring conditions.
