Mallorca's hidden treasures
Palma De Mallorca is the perfect island getaway to relax and reset. It offers beautiful beaches with crystal clear waters. A lot of these, however, cannot be found in the heart of Palma and are usually a car ride away to the other side of the island, and some of them are off the beaten track and are somewhat hidden gems kept by the locals.
Below are some of my favourite beaches that my best friend and I found. I recommend hiring a car, as the bus can only take you to some of the more popular spots but most are down dirt roads and off the grid.
(Also, apologies for these not all being my own images. My laptop and hard drive got stolen from my hotel room in Vegas last year, taking with them every single image I had to date, apart from what was already on the Instagram).
CALA DE DEYA
A tiny little bay with a small thatched roof restaurant, stunning water and fun little rock climbs for insane views. This is a more popular spot for locals as it's close to Palma so it can be quite busy. Also Deia township is beyond beautiful. It’s the main town you go through to get to Cala De Deya – it’s a ‘must stop your car and soak it all in’ type of village.
At the top tip of the island, offering breath taking views from the Cliffside. Perfect for sunrise or sunset.
PLAYA DE FORMENTOR
A short drive from Es Colomer. Pristine clear waters and lots of trees right up to the shore line for some much needed shade.
My favourite beach. I don’t really need to say why as the picture speaks for itself. It’s a bit hard to find so GPS is crucial. A long dirst road that looks like its going nowhere leads to the start of the path to get down to the beach. From the beach - You can climb around the left-hand side of the cliffs and jump off or continue walking 10 mins further and jump off the cliff there, you can swim back to the beach through an underwater cave. You will need a water proof torch!
CALA DES MORO
Another picturesque beach. Relax and watch people jumping off the cliff sides, and soak up the stunning clear water. Only issue is there is not a lot of space to plonk your butt if its busy.
For those daring, there is a nudist beach located near Cala Mayor. Stunning views and a lot of skin. It's closer to the main town of Palma and we just biked to this one. It's a beautiful, powerful feeling baring all in nature, i highly recommend it :)
