Best Beaches

There are more than a hundred beaches to chose from (see the Mallorca beach section on this website) if you want to spend a day at the beach.

Here are a few that are easily accessible from Finca Cassiopea, all within 30 to 45 minuts drive, and with ample car parking opportunity.

These are the beaches we tend to go to.

The beach at Port de Pollensa has always had a quiet and peaceful atmosphere which explains why this part of the coast of Mallorca has inspired many artists and writers.

This extremely long sandy beach has been regenerated over the last couple of years and has been artificially enhanced by the introduction of extra coarse sand to ensure that a beach was maintained in this area.

It’s still a great place to spend the days catching some rays.

The Playa de Muro is actually in between Can Picafort and Alcudia in the North of Mallorca. It covers over 5km and is actually made up of 4 distinct stretches.

Called Playa de Muro, although Muro is a town further inland, there is over 5km of beach with something for everyone.

The 3.4km stretch in front of the Parc s’Albufera is by the most highly occupied as it easily accessible and has the best sand and water conditions of the whole beach.

The part further towards Can Picafort is slightly more remote and therefore less busy

Playa de Palma :One of the most well known beaches on Mallorca for its proximity to Palma.

A full 4.6km of fine sandy beach with clear blue water in front of it.

Its a very nice beach with good sand, convenient to Palma and with plenty happening around the place to make a day there interesting.

Es Trenc is a stunning beach in a great location, and possibly the best known on the island. You’d think that you were in the Caribbean and not Mallorca. Simply amazing!

This huge and beautiful white sand beach with amazing crystal clear blue waters is a favourite of locals and tourists alike. It’s usually busiest on Sundays when whole families descend on the beach to have a lazy day in the sun. Its one of the most unspoilt and preserved beaches on Mallorca and with its big sweeping sand dunes you´ll be sure to find a nice place to catch some Mallorcan sun.

Its also a great place for a long walk in the winter, wrap up and take in the beautiful sea air.

Son Serra :Whilst the beach here has somewhat grainy golden sand, the main reason to come here is for the sea. This part of the coastline is not protected by the bay and the winds can really pick up, making it perfect for wind surfing and kite surfing. The seabed is a mixture of rock and sand, and is fairly shallow.

The beach is 450 metres long and is very deep, at 130 metres. It backs on to natural sand dunes and countryside – no built up coastline here! In the background you will see the hills of Llevant Natural Park. It has been known for nudists to frequent the quieter spots of the beach.

There aren’t any sun loungers to hire here, in fact the only service you’ll find are showers. However, there is a beach bar/restaurant called El Sol which should need all your refreshment needs.

Cala Formentor is a beautiful beach that sits below the internationally renowned Hotel Formentor, whose guests have included famous artists and politicians as well as important events organised there. Winston Churchill, John Wayne, Octavio Paz and others have stayed here.

Cala Formentor is 14 kilometers from Port de Pollença. It is a very long and narrow beach that has very fine white sand. Running along the back of the beach is a very thick pine and Holm Oak wood and some of the trees provide shade on a hot summers day.

This beach is easy to get to by car, however in the height of the summer you may find parking a bit of an issue due to the number of tourist and locals who will be soaking up the sun.

The more adventurous may like to drive up to the lighthouse at Cap Formentor.
