05 Apr Mallorca: route around the Island’s coves
In Mallorca, you will find a rich tapestry of colour thanks to the island’s idyllic climate, offering irresistible charm for tourists and the most incredible walks. Enjoy the cool breeze of the Mediterranean Sea and the turquoise waters of the island’s coves. Lose yourself in impressive landscapes, as the image of the sea merges with the majestic presence of unspoilt surroundings.
With miles and miles of white sandy beaches and turquoise waters at every turn, choosing which beaches to visit is no easy task. But don’t worry! Here at Hidden Away we recommend 3 destinations that should be included on any trip to Mallorca. Take note!
Located in the sleepy village of Escorca, 38 km from Sóller, in the shelter of the mighty Puig Mayor mountain, we find Sa Calobra, a natural paradise whose greatest charm lies at the end of a pedestrian tunnel, nestled among rugged sheer cliffs.
Naturally, we are talking about the mouth of the river Torrent de Pareis: a uniquely charming spot, where sea, cliffs and forest merge into one. Relax as you gaze out at the translucent waters, where artists from all over the world at some point in their lives have found the inspiration they have yearned for.
Caló des Moro
On the south east of the island, in the shelter of sheer cliffs, we catch a glimpse of Caló des Moro, one of the most popular coves on the island.
From this idyllic hideaway of crystal clear waters, pristine sands and large rocks, you can enjoy a sensational panoramic view of the entire coastline and the spectacular natural beauty spot of Ses Salines. Thanks to its physiognomy, Caló des Moro is an ideal place to practice activities such as diving and snorkelling.
Its proximity to the characteristic town of Santanyí further adds to the appeal of this spot. Lose all sense of time as you stroll around this unique municipality in Mallorca. Soak up the art of its galleries, shops and streets.
If you don’t want to miss out on the opportunity to visit Caló des Moro, we suggest setting off first thing in the morning, since this spot is very popular with bathers and it is only small. The experience is well worth it!
Declared a Nature Park in 1992 and subsequently a Natural Area of Special Interest for Birds, Cala Mondragó is the best choice for those travelling with small children, as it is a flat beach with fine sand and shallow waters.
Behind the cove lies the Ses Fonts de n’Alis wetlands, home to wildlife that will delight visitors of all ages: from birds and eels to water snakes.
Cala Mondragó is untouched by mass tourism, and is the perfect place to meld with the sea. Enjoy this idyllic setting at any time of the year.
You simply cannot leave Mallorca without sampling its diverse gastronomy. After an intense day discovering all of the island’s sublime beaches, the sun begins to set, ushering in the night.
Undoubtedly, its time to return to Palma to charge your batteries. What better way to do that than by sampling the authentic flavours of the island at the Despensa del Barón? We have the perfect recipe for you: the best local produce, a fine selection of drinks, and the prodigious hands of chef David Raya and his team, who will do their very best to make sure your visit leaves you with a good taste in your mouth.
Have a pleasant stay!
