Calo des Moro

Calo des Moro

Mallorca
As well as its popular, beautiful mainstream tourist beaches, Mallorca's coast is full of small, natural 'cove' beaches - known as calas - many of which are more remote and difficult to access, but provide a more natural and 'wild' beach experience for those willing to put the effort into hiking / climbing / boating to them. Perhaps the most…

Cala Murta Beach, Near Formentor

Cala Murta Beach, Near Formentor

Mallorca
We had seen pictures of Cala Murta before our trip to Mallorca - and we knew it was a remote, natural beach hidden away and only accessible by walking a forested mountain-side trail. It sounded like just the type of place we love to visit - and a welcome change from the busier, more mainstream tourist beaches on the island.…

Cala Deia

Cala Deia

Mallorca
Cala Deia was the third of Mallorca's best, hidden natural cove beaches on our list to visit, after Cala Murta and Calo des Moro and is one of Mallorca's most famous beaches - apparently a popular hangout of the rich and famous who come to enjoy its stunning cliff-side restaurant that overlooks the clear blue waters of the cove. The…

Mondrago Natural Park

Mondrago Natural Park

Mallorca
Mondrago Natural Park is a beautiful area of beaches, forested coastal and cliff-side walks very close to the popular resorts of Santanyi and Cala D'Or in the south-east of Mallorca. We were looking for somewhere to visit a bit different to the main tourist beaches - and Mondrago Natural Park's description of having natural beaches accessed through woodland walks sounded…

We found a last-minute deal for a week half-board in Port d'Andratx, which was too good to miss.¬†It was cheap because it was in the off-season…

La Pergola Hotel, Port d’Andratx (Mallorca) Review

La Pergola Hotel, Port d’Andratx (Mallorca) Review

Mallorca
We booked our week-long stay in April at La Pergola through Travelzoo as a last-minute break and had no real idea what to expect. We'd got a cheap deal including flights with Ryanair, airport transfers and half-board (breakfast and dinner included) at La Pergola for a price that, even if the hotel turned out to be a bit of a…

Port d’Andratx, Mallorca

Port d’Andratx, Mallorca

Mallorca
We'd never heard of Port d'Andratx before we picked it for a last-minute Spring week away as a result of a special deal that came up on Travelzoo. It seemed like a good option to hopefully get away from what had seemed like an endless UK winter and get some much-needed sun - just a 2-hour flight away from Bournemouth…

Hiring a Boat for the Day in Port D’Andratx, Mallorca

Hiring a Boat for the Day in Port D’Andratx, Mallorca

Mallorca
During our April stay in Port d'Andratx, we frequently walked through¬†the 'Club de Vela' marina and noticed numerous boats available for hire, ranging from fairly large motorboats down to small dinghies and ribs. The sight of the bright, golden sun sparkling on the clear blue Mediterranean waters of Port d'Andratx each day made this an extremely attractive idea - as…
