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 Majorca, on the Bay of Pollenca and is a Blue Flag beach.
With a stunning backdrop of pine forest and views to the mountains, it is 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 850 metres 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 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.
The nearest resort to Cala Formentor is Port de Pollenca - read more about this resort in our Guide to Port Pollenca.
