How to get around in Mallorca

The best way to get around is to rent a car at the airport. It will costs you around 200€ per week it’s not so expensive. So, you will be able to explore the island and the different beaches.

What are the best beaches in Mallorca?

Es Calo des Moro Beach in Southern Mallorca

This is probably the most beautiful beach in Mallorca – or at least the most beautiful beach I saw while in Mallorca! A private foundation owns and cares for this beach, so it’s beautifully maintained and you won’t see any hotels or beach bars here it’s wild. You will have to climb down a lot of rocks to get here, but I think the extra effort to get here makes it even more special.

Cala Mesquida Beach in Northeastern Mallorca

This is also one of the most beautiful beaches in Mallorca. I love that the beach is very long, it stretches 300 meters and the water is shallow pretty far out.

Sa Calobra Beach in Western Mallorca

You should also drive to the Sa Calobra beach which with its breathtaking drops and many hairpins was probably the highlight of visiting Sa Calobra, but Sa Calobra beach was also beautiful.

Cala Pi Beach in Southern Mallorca

Cala Pi (Playa de Cala Pi on Google maps) was one of the prettier but also one of the busier beaches. But I loved its setting in between tall cliffs and it just had a really nice vibe. There is also a beach shack where you can get drinks and snacks.
