The largest of 8 beaches in the region, this beach spans over a kilometre in length and is approximately 30 metres wide. Whilst it’s fairly busy during the summer months, if you can visit during their ‘off-season’, you’ll find a generous white sand beach with beautiful turquoise water.

A pedestrianised promenade runs behind the beach, facilitating access and adjoining neighbouring resorts Cala Bona and Sa Coma. Full of Palm trees, generously laid out and well-kept green areas, and ‘instagrammable’ sculptures, the long promenade becomes very busy during the summer months.

Popular with German, Scandinavian and British tourists, the resort hosts an excellent selection of bars, restaurants and shops, and water sports, making this beach spot especially great for families . Also located in central Cala Millor is ‘Fantasy Park’ offering a variety of activities for children, with everything for children including bouncy castles mini boat trips.

Cala Millor is Mallorca’s largest resort on the eastern coast and offers several events and activities to keep you entertained. Every Monday, the Carrer de l’Eucapliptus transforms into a colourful and vibrant market street, with regional suppliers offering their harvests, art, fashion and more creative talents. You’ll find both the locals and the tourists strolling through here, collecting souvenirs; jewellery; celebratory gifts; and of course, their weekly fruit and veg. Enjoy seasonal tasters whilst you shop, and the local street musicians playing beautifully on the side. The market runs from March until October every Monday from 09.30am and is worth a visit.

Restaurants, cafes, and bars line the town’s seafront promenade, until you reach neighbouring town, Cala Bona. Countless terraces spill onto the promenade, using the wide space to bottle the atmosphere. Offering food and drinks, beer and cocktails, burgers and paella… there is something on offer for absolutely everyone.

Whilst the east coast of Mallorca isn’t usually renowned for its late-night partying, tourist resorts such as Cala Millor and neighbouring Cala Bona, offer their fair share of no-frill tavernas and chiringuito style bars, plus the odd discotheque from April until October.

If you’re visiting in the last week of September, Cala Millor Bay is the backdrop to a spectacular firework display during Mallorca’s annual ‘Tourist Festival’.

Found alongside the iconic palm trees, the seafront is lined with a selection of hotels equipped to include everyone, from the more luxurious to family-friendly of clientele. Gastronomy, infrastructure, and a huge selection of leisure activities, easily compliment the extensive accommodation options.

Since the 1970’s, Cala Millor has offered the highest density of hotels in the east of Mallorca, since the merging of neighbouring villages, Cala Bona to the north and Sa Coma to the south.

Setting & Location

Cala Millor has been one of Mallorca’s most treasured and visited beaches since the 1930s. Located between Costa dels Pins and the protected rocky headland of Sa Punta de n’Amer, it’s extensive stretch of sand cocoons the bay in an area of exceptional and scenic beauty, (with the latter declared as a natural area of special interest, you’d be wise to further explore this coastline if you have the chance).

As well as a large percentage of pedestrianisation, there’s a cycle lane that runs along the seafront promenade, linking the length of the coastline between Costa dels Pins and S’Illot, and an additional section from the coast to inland town, Son Servera.

Water Safety & Clarity

The shallow, clear, and blue water is ideal for children’s play. During the busy Mallorca holiday season, the beach becomes crowded but without hindrance to family fun. It has all the facilities you could need - sun loungers and parasols to hire, showers and toilets, ramps and reserved parking for the disabled, as well as lifeguards on duty with a first aid station and a rescue launch. At times waves can be sizeable due to the open nature of the bay and make sure you stay aware of less visible undercurrents which aren’t always well marked when present. Buoys mark the channel and clearly separate bathing areas.
