Majorca is one of the most visited islands by tourists to enjoy their holidays, among other things due to the combination that exists between the good weather in Majorca and the quality of its beaches and coves. There are more than 300 beaches and coves in Mallorca. Deciding which is the best one or which are the best coves in Mallorca is quite a complicated task, as they are all paradisiacal landscapes with crystal clear, turquoise waters.
However, the coves in Majorca that we suggest in this blog have something special. They are coves of breathtaking natural beauty. You will be able to disconnect and enjoy yourself like never before.
But don't forget to pack your suitcase, take good shoes and, above all, wear your swimming costume, as you won't be able to resist the crystal-clear water of the best coves in Majorca.
Cala Varques is undoubtedly one of the best coves in Mallorca. It is located in the municipality of Manacor, just over 20 minutes by road from the Hotel Ola Apartamentos Cala d'Or. Although not all of the journey can be made by road. You will have to walk along a path, sometimes a little steep, for approximately 15 minutes until you reach the beach. Therefore, don't forget to wear comfortable footwear that is ideal for walking along an easy but somewhat uneven path. Once you get to Cala Varques the worst is over, there you will understand why it is one of the best coves in Mallorca, but even so, we will explain it to you below.
Cala Varques is a virgin cove, 100% natural and quiet. It is surrounded by a pine grove with 100 metres of white sand and rocks. The waters that caress the cove are crystal clear and clean, and in them are hidden a multitude of underwater caves for diving enthusiasts. One of the most famous caves in Cala Varques in Mallorca is the Cueva del Pirata (Pirate's Cave). It is an impressive cave, which can be reached by swimming, and contains a beautiful path of stalactites, stalagmites and lakes that create a unique and incomparable beauty.
Cala Varques Mallorca has many other natural wonders, such as the natural rock bridge of Cala Varques. Legend has it that millions of years ago, it was a cave, but for some reason part of the roof must have collapsed, giving rise to what we know today: a natural rock bridge. It is undoubtedly a unique place where you will have to take out your camera to immortalise a snapshot on top of it.
The next cove to discover is Cala Llombards, which could not be missing in our blog about the best coves in Mallorca and now you will understand why. It is located in the municipality of Santanyí, just over 25 minutes by road from our Aparthotel Ola Cala d'Or. It can only be reached by car, as there is no public transport to get to the area. The access by road is easy and the cove has a well signposted, large and free car park.
Cala Llombards is a slightly smaller cove than the previous one, approximately 60 metres in length, purely of white sand. Aesthetically it is considered one of the most beautiful coves in Mallorca. It stands out for its conical shape and two rocky cliffs jutting out at either end, giving it a special and singular beauty. This Mallorcan cove is surrounded by a pine grove and the waters are crystal clear with a level of transparency that allows you to see perfectly everything that is hidden in its depths.
Cala Llombards Mallorca is a beach very frequented by tourists and residents, so if the good weather in Mallorca accompanies you, do not hesitate to go early. The waves are practically non-existent because the cliffs mentioned above protect it from them. It is therefore ideal to enjoy with the whole family.

The journey from our Hotel Ola Apartamentos Cala d'Or takes approximately 30 minutes. Although it is possible to access the cove from the road, there is little parking available. For this reason, we recommend you park in the car park at s'Amarador beach, which has more parking and is free of charge. To reach Cala Mondragó, from this point, it will only take you 15 minutes on foot.
The fact that it is located within the nature reserve gives this Mallorcan cove a great ecological value. Cala Mondragó has a very well-kept and natural landscape. It is a beach of considerable dimensions with fine, whitish sand and crystal-clear, shallow waters that are ideal for the youngest members of the family. The natural cove is surrounded by a striking vegetation formed by a pine forest and fauna that is totally protected. This makes Cala Mondragó one of the most beautiful coves in Mallorca.
