Cala Millor

Cala Millor is a locality in the east of Mallorca, which is located between the municipalities of Sant Llorenç des Cardassar and Son Servera, both of which are responsible for its management.

It is one of the most important tourist destinations on the island and not just a beach, as many people think, although among the many that it has, Cala Millor beach stands out, precisely, which is its main attraction thanks to its 1320 metres long and 30 metres wide.

Cala Millor has a large hotel and service infrastructure, with most of its hotels located on the seafront on its pleasant promenade, where you can simply enjoy a stroll or use its many shops, bars, cafes and restaurants.

It is one of the best places to stay in Mallorca, as it combines hustle and bustle with relaxation, and is therefore frequented by young people, families and seniors. It is a town focused on summer tourism and during the winter it “sleeps”, just like other areas such as Palmanova, Magaluf, El Arenal, Cala Ratjada, Cala D’Or, Santa Ponsa or Playa de Muro.

Cala Millor

History of Cala Millor

Its history began to be written with the construction of the first hotel in Cala Millor in 1933, the Hotel Eureka, a hotel that no longer exists as such and is now a block of flats. There is an aphorism that says “everything changes, nothing remains“, so true!

A few years before the Civil War, Cala Millor was only made up of a few peasants’ houses that were used to store seaweed to feed their animals and which in summer became an exclusive place to spend holidays within the reach of very few.

It was the “tourist boom” of the 1960s that triggered the massive growth of this Mallorcan village and the galloping construction of hotels and apartments to accommodate as much tourism as possible.

🎁 Download for free the map of Mallorca that we have prepared exclusively for the readers of the website. You will be able to make use of it on your mobile phone and use it at any time to organise and enjoy your holiday on the island.

There are several ways to get to Cala Millor, although the most advisable, if you are not staying in the town or in the surrounding area, is to do it with your own vehicle or a hire car.

Although it is a very touristy destination and has a public transport service, this locality is a somewhat “cornered” area of the island and is far from the important cities and villages of Mallorca, so it will take you quite a long time to get there.

Car hire Mallorca

Cala Millor is a whopping 72.5 km and 1 hour’s drive from Palma de Mallorca (For a Mallorcan, more than 15 minutes by car is madness. We have yet to tell you about it…), having to go first to Manacor on the Ma-15. Once there, continue along the same road and go around Sant Llorenç des Cardassar, taking the Ma-4030.

You will go round Son Servera on the Ma-4040 road and once you have passed this village you will have to take the Ma-4023 road which will take you to your destination.

Getting to Cala Millor by public transport or taxi

As we were telling you, getting to Cala Millor by public transport or by taxi is very easy given its location, you could even come by train (yes, yes, in Mallorca there is also a train!). However, as we said, public transport can take some time. If you travel to Mallorca at your leisure and are not in a hurry, it can be a good option.

You can find precise and concrete information on how to get around Mallorca using the public transport network in these two articles.

Arriving by bus to Cala Millor

If you prefer to get to Cala Millor by bus, you should know that a couple of transfers await you:

  • If you are coming from Palma, at Parc de Ses Estacions (in front of Plaza España) you must take bus line 401 and change at Manacor to line 412, direction Cala Bona. You will cross Son Servera with the bus and in five stops you will arrive at Cala Millor. You could also go to Manacor by train and then take bus line 412.
  • Coming from areas such as Pollença or Alcudia, there is a direct line from these towns to Cala Millor, but only in summer. However, during the off-season this line disappears and the fastest way will take you about 3 hours! You will have to take line 301 (in either of the two municipalities) and get to Palma, change there and follow the same route as described above.
  • Coming from the south, from Colònia de Sant Jordi for example, you would also have to make two transfers, one in Campos and the other in Manacor, taking lines 517, 501 and 412.

In summer a direct bus line to Cala Bona and Cala Millor from the airport, line A42, is activated.

Getting to Cala Millor by taxi

If you prefer to take a taxi to Cala Millor, bear in mind that the cost of the journey can be high depending on where you are coming from. Ask about the price before you get on, as to give you an idea, if you travel by plane, from Palma Airport it would cost between €80-90.

Beaches of Cala Millor

The beaches of Cala Millor are, without a doubt, the main attraction of the area. These are equipped with many services, have a good infrastructure in their surroundings and are a real wonder, with transparent waters and fine white sand. In general, we love the eastern part of Mallorca 💙.

Cala Millor beach

The beach of Cala Millor, also known as Son Moro or Cala Nau, is simply spectacular and one of the jewels of Mallorca, which is why it has been awarded the prestigious Blue Flag.

It is a kilometre-long stretch of sand of an incredible quality that is difficult to classify, just like the beaches of the south, Es Trenc and Ses Covetes; in the north, Playa de Muro; or in Palma, with Playa de Palma and El Arenal. Crystal-clear waters, fine-grained white sand, gentle slope and posidonia oceanica meadows. This is the largest of all the beaches in the town of Cala Millor, with a length of 1,750 metres and a width of 35 metres.

Arenal of Cala Millor

Cala Millor is an ideal area for holidays and, among other factors, this is because its beaches have all the necessary services and infrastructure: sun lounger and beach umbrella rental, lifeguard service, restaurants and beach bars, toilets and showers. On the promenade, there are also shops, leisure facilities and accommodation of all kinds.

Cala Millor beach is also an accessible beach, with access ramps for people with reduced mobility, as well as reserved parking areas for cars, motorbikes and bicycles.

On this beach you can practice sports such as volleyball in the nets that are set up; diving, bodyboarding or take advantage of the calm days to practice paddle surfing.

You can also rent a velomar, ride a banana boat or go jet skiing, windsurfing and parasailing.

Cala Bona Beach

This is the next beach after Cala Millor beach, which you will find if you walk to the left towards Costa des Pins. It is 550 metres long and 32 metres wide.

Cala Bona beach has been certified by AENOR with the UNE 170001 Universal Accessibility standard and can be accessed by anyone with functional diversity as all architectural barriers have been eliminated. It also has first aid services, toilets, changing rooms and showers, amphibious chairs, etc…

Cala Bona is characterised by the fact that it is divided into three smaller beaches separated by stone dikes that protect them. Cala Bona Marina is 650 metres away.

Sa Marjal and Es Ribell beaches

The beaches of Sa Marjal and Es Ribell belong to Son Servera and are the longest beaches of this locality, 600 metres long and 15 metres wide; and 70 metres long and 3 metres wide respectively. These two beaches, Port Vell and Cap des Pinar, belong to the well-known Costa dels Pins or Costa de los Pinos, the furthest part of the town of Cala Millor.

It is the only extensive, fine-grained, greyish-coloured sandy area you will find in this municipality, and this is due to the accumulation of the Posidonia oceanica plant.

The characteristics of the beach make it an attractive place for many, with average occupancy in high season. It is a beach with a special magic, as it is located in a beautiful corner far away from hotels and urbanisations, adorned by tamarinds that protect it and give it the typical landscape of a Mediterranean cove.

Anchoring at Sa Marjal Beach

Anchoring boats is not always easy, but it is when the winds blow from the fourth quadrant, the best place being in front of the Costa dels Pins jetty in a sandy area 2-4 metres deep. The nearest port facility is that of Porto Cristo, 6.5 nautical miles away.

⛵ It is well known that one of the best ways to get to know the Mallorcan coastline is by boat, as this is the only way to access beaches and coves of Mallorca that are not accessible to everyone. If you are up for it and your budget allows it, we highly recommend you to do it on board a sailing boat. It is a unique experience!

Port Roig beach

Port Roig beach is the name given to the beach of the Cala Bona Marina and is known by the locals as l’Estanc d’en Xinet, remembering that in the past this place was a jetty, as the 4 pillars that emerge from the water make clear.

It is a beach 160 metres long and 5 metres wide, and is also part of the Costa dels Pins.

Getting to Port Roig beach is easy, as after arriving in the town of Cala Millor you only have to follow the coastline northwards towards Cap des Pinar and park near the Hotel Sun Wing Resort where parking is free.

It is a pleasant beach due to its quiet location, fine-grained sand and turquoise waters. If you are thinking of anchoring, it is an interesting option, as it is sheltered from N winds, as well as being ideal for water sports such as snorkelling and paddle surfing.

Its easy access and tourist activity, with bars in the surrounding area, make it the perfect choice for local families and tourists, with medium degree occupation of the beach during the summer months.

Es Ratjolí beach

Es Ratjolí beach is the last beach and the furthest away from the town centre of Cala Millor and is located a few metres from Cap des Pins. It is a beach with a touch of a film, due to its surroundings and exclusivity, accessed via a small staircase that connects to the main road.

With a length of 70 metres and a width of 7 metres, its sand is not as fine and is darker, but its waters are spectacular and interesting for diving due to the number of rocky areas along the nearby coastline.

During the summer months, it is advisable not to arrive late at the beach, as there is not much parking.

Sa Coma beach

Sa Coma beach belongs to the municipality of Sant Llorenç de Cardassar and is located between Punta de n’Amer and the municipality of S’Illot, just 5 km from Portocristo.

Sa Coma was born as a residential and hotel area in the 1980s, so be prepared for a massive influx of bathers in summer. Even so, it follows the same line as Cala Millor: transparent and clear waters where you can see dolphins, an extensive sandy area of 900 metres by 60 metres wide and large banks of posidonia oceanica in its deepest part.

The beach has 3 kiosks, a bar and a toilet. It has a lifeguard, buoy signs, bathing area limits and safety equipment.

Accessibility for people with mobility problems is guaranteed with access ramps, amphibious chairs for bathers and reserved parking areas.

The quality of its waters make diving and windsurfing, among other water activities, favourable and recommendable, and its extensive shore invites you to practice sand sports such as beach volleyball.

Punta de n’Amer

If you are here, we recommend that you visit Punta de n’Amer, a 200-hectare peninsula declared an Area of Special Interest by the Balearic Government in 1991, which separates the beaches of Cala Millor and Sa Coma.

It is an area open to the winds and far from the shore there is a lot of depth, which makes it an unadvisable area for anchoring. If you have rented a boat for sailing and want to anchor or moor, the nearest port facility is located 3.7 nautical miles away in Porto Cristo.

S’Illot beach

S’Illot beach, also known as Cala Moreia, is 350m long and 35m wide. It has sun loungers and parasols for hire, lifeguard post, access for people with reduced mobility, car park, showers, pedal boats and water sports for hire.

The Torrent de N’Amer flows into this beach, which is crossed by a bridge that marks the inter-municipal boundary between Sant Llorenç des Cardassar and Manacor. Right there, you can also visit a Talayotic settlement in an excellent state of conservation, declared a National Monument in 1964.
