Cala D'Or Holidays
Fellow travellers say Cala D'Or is great for…
Cala d'Or is the name given to a group of small, neighbouring resorts on Mallorca’s east coast. Traditional, whitewashed buildings line pretty streets to give the area a typical Balearic feel. Each resort retains its own unique charm and character while providing all the conveniences modern tourists have come to expect. As Cala d’Or is largely a purpose-built resort, accommodation tends to be spacious, modern and comfortable. Package holidays in Cala d’Or are popular with families as many of the hotels have excellent entertainment and kids clubs. There are lots of large hotel chains in the area but if you prefer more traditional accommodation, head into the hills just to the west of the resort.
Holidays in Cala d’Or attract holidaymakers of all ages. The stunning sandy beaches might be fairly small but they are very popular. The number of beaches in the region, however, means it’s usually no problem locating a quiet spot. There are loungers and umbrellas available along most stretches of beach and plenty of water sports on offer for lively types. Boat trips are widely available in Cala d’Or and spending a relaxing day at sea is a wonderful addition to your holiday. For the adventurous, there are a couple of nudist beaches in the area, which can come as quite a surprise to those who stumble across them accidentally.
Cala d’Or is ideal for a relaxing holiday and you won’t find booming nightclubs here. Nightlife is sophisticated and low-key and concentrated around a variety of bars and smaller clubs. There are some great restaurants in the area with the more expensive establishments located around the marina. While these provide a lovely setting for a special meal, you can eat just as well for far less in other parts of town. Those on package holiday deals will often be staying on a self-catering or half board basis, providing visitors with ample opportunity to sample the local eateries.
