If you are one of those people who cannot travel without a camera, this list is for you. Protur Hotels from all the team and our guests has selected the best beaches in Majorca to photograph. All the coves of turquoise water and brilliant sand banks deserve to be exhibited, at least, in your Instagram. If you have never been to the island, take note, because you will not want to miss any.
The emblematic beach of Majorca that, unless one specifies, could easily be confused with any sandy beach in the Caribbean. Long with fine, white sand which shines in the sun, the crystal clear sea lapping with hardly any waves the perfect beach, dunes peppered with vegetation around about, a few beach bars and the famous bunkers painted by street artists that paint their messages that have gone round the world… Es Trenc in the south of Majorca near to Santanyi, Campos and Ses Salines, is the most photographed beach without a doubt. If you are on the island this autumn, visit the area it is the perfect time to see it in all its splendor.
Calo des Moro
Very near to Es Trenc because it is also in the southern park of Majorca. This is a small cove which is a sea inlet between two tall cliffs. The access is complicated because you have to go down the slope and the sandy area is scarce. However, all this is compensated by the crystal clear water and the view from above converts the imagine into that of a post card.
A little further to the north from Sa Coma, in Cala Varques, you can find some of our most complete hotels in Majorca. One of the most famous for the quality of the virgin beach – sometimes it is possible to find cows and goats taking the sun nearby – where it is necessary to take a narrow path through trees to arrive. After walking for about 10 – 15 minutes, the prize is incredible, bright blue water with a light foam caressing the shore and with small cliffs surrounding where the most daring can practice a type of climbing called deep water soloing (psicobloc). The cove and the climbers hanging from the rock walls are in more than one photo!
In the Serra de Tramuntana, the area most to the west, near to Andratx, is Estellencs. This very small village with just a main principal street and various small streets which go up and down the mountain, has one of the most original coves of Majorca: access is via a bridge and then starts nearby a great, red, rock slope. Nearby they still keep the small, traditional fishing boats of the village fishermen.
Situated in the Natural Park of Mondrago, is another of the turquoise coves which you should make sure you take home with you in the form of photographs. During a clear day of brilliant sunshine you can capture all the colours in their maximum splendour, from the turquoise of the water to the intense white of the sand and the refreshing pine trees that surround the coast. Take advantage of your visit to have a picnic and enjoy the excellent autumn climate in Majorca in the picnic area.
The excellent beach of Cala Ratjada in the extreme northeast of Majorca. A virgin beach that forms part of the natural park of Llevant and is highlighted by the quality of its water, cleanliness, fine sand (of the most fine in the whole of Majorca due to the fact that the sea that connects Majorca and Minorca in this area has very strong waves in the winter) and woods. Around the whole beach are pine trees creating a natural frontier between this paradise and the rest of civilization. As well, the village of Cala Ratjada is one of those which retains the most maritime spirit on the island and if you have the opportunity, go to the port and watch the fishermen unload boxes and boxes of fish and red prawns from the Mediterranean.
Playa de Muro
This great beach of the north of Majorca that extends for more than 12 kilometres joining with those of Can Picafort and the other great sand bank in the area: Son Serra de Marina. Playa de Muro has a specific area where numerous photographs are always taken, which is a wooden jetty extending into the Bay of Alcudia from where can be seen the Mediterranean in all its splendour. From there until the zone of Ses Casetes de Ses Capellans, the beach is adorned with a strip of natural dunes that come from the natural park of S’Albufera de Majorca, the biggest wetland on the island, ideal for photographing birds and insects.
