Cala Formentor Beach, North Mallorca

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

Categorised in:

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.

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.

The nearest resort to Cala Formentor is Port de Pollenca - read more about this resort in our Guide to Port Pollenca.

Setting & location

It is situated approximately 7km to the north-west of Port de Pollenca. One of Mallorca's most distinguished hotels is found here - the Barcelo Formentor. It's hey-day was back in the thirties when it entertained a host of film stars from that era. It has since been refurbished (!) and welcomes today's rich and famous.

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.

Fine white sand.
