Holidays to Cala Millor bring you one of Majorca’s best beaches, family-friendly pubs and restaurants – and the mysterious Caves of Drach just down the road.
A bubbly character
Some resorts just have a buzz about them – and Cala Millor is one of them. Set on Majorca’s rugged northeast coast, this place is a really lively number with a promenade and pedestrianised streets packed with shops, cafés and bars. There’s no need for crowd control on the beach, though – the long, sandy stretch has got it covered.
The beach here comes in a bay that’s sheltered by 2 rocky headlands. You’ve got a 2-kilometre stretch of sand that gently shelves into calm water – great for kids and snorkellers. And backing it all up is a palm-shaded promenade which runs the whole length and comes with bucket-and-spade shops plus loads of eating places.
Cala Millor isn’t a clubbing zone. The nightlife here is fun-focused rather than full-on, so you’ll get quizzes and karaoke that all the family can join in with. There are plenty of happy-go-lucky bars, too, and a clutch of discos if you want them.
Great for day trips
Twenty minutes gets you to the famous Caves of Drach, one of the island’s top tourist attractions. It’s all stalagmites and stalactites in a huge subterranean cave, and comes with one of the world’s biggest underground lakes. Or right on your doorstep you’ve got the Punta de n’Amer nature reserve, with its dunes and pine forest.
