Es Pontàs
1 Tour and Activity

Along Mallorca’s southeastern coast you’ll find a collection of sweet coastal towns, idyllic beach coves, and one especially photo-beckoning sight, Es Pontàs. This natural rock arch loops high out of the clear, crystalline waters just off shore, where it lures everyone from sunrise seekers to picture takers and rock climbers.

And its location near other ideal island destinations makes it an even more deserving trek. While in the area, claim a plot of sand on the nearby, cove-protected Cala Santanyi beach; explore the sweet, old-world streets of the more inland town of Santanyi; and wander the coastal trails of Mondrago Natural Park.

Cala Santanyí
1 Tour and Activity

Though now recognized as one of the most beautiful beach areas of Mallorca, Cala Santanyi was not part of the initial tourism boom on the island — in fact it hardly welcomed visitors until the 1960s. That quiet, relaxed atmosphere remains undisturbed, though a variety of outdoor activities both in and out of the beautiful water are offered. The long, white-sand beach here is scenically surrounded by rocky cliffs and forests filled with pine trees. Boat trips, as well as swimming, snorkeling, and scuba diving all take place in the calm waters just off of the beach. Hiking in the nearby cliffs, or exploring the adjacent nature reserve are options to explore the Mediterranean landscape. There are also three main restaurants along the beach area with shaded lounge areas and local food and drink if you’d rather take the relaxed approach.

Cala Figuera

1 Tour and Activity

Perched on the coastal cliffs of the island of Mallorca, Cala Figuera was once only a modest fishing village and small harbor. Today it is one of the most picturesque towns that has maintained its whitewashed homes and colorful boat houses, making it popular with visitors. There are no public beaches or easily accessible parts of the coast, so the village maintains its quiet feel.

Views of the clear waters are particularly worth seeking, from coastal paths winding along the cliffs and hillside. Rock and sand formations, beaches, coves, a lighthouse, and of course, the turquoise sea are all visible from relatively flat walking paths. The main cove is dramatically surrounded by steep mountains. Still operating as a fishing town, the seafood is the specialty of the restaurants here. As evening approaches, you may even be able to watch the fishing boats coming into port with their daily catch.

Marineland Mallorca

If your visit to Mallorca calls for a water experience beyond just the beach, then you’ll get your fix at Marineland Mallorca. The ocean-inspired amusement park is the place to go to explore more about creatures under the sea, including everything from penguins to turtles, sting rays, dolphins and sea lions.

In fact, it’s those latter two — the dolphins and sea lions — that are really the stars given that your visit also includes checking out these marine creatures in an incredible show. The park isn’t only about water life, either, as it is home to tropical rainforest animals, too, such as snakes, iguanas, monkeys and more. And you’re not just limited to experiencing it all from a far; visitors can take pictures with park residents such as the dolphins and parrots (for an additional price).
