Cala d'Or Holidays

Travel Agent's View

Travel Agents View July and August can be good times to visit as the Cala d'Or International Jazz Festival is held in July each year and the Fiesta of la Mare de Deu del Mar is held in August

Cala d'Or was once a quiet fishing village which has grown over the years to become a popular tourist destination. There are plenty of shops, bars and restaurants, mainly around the pedestrianised town centre, which cater for all tastes and budgets.

Nightlife is relatively low key with much of the evening entertainment being hotel based. The beaches are small and clean but can get quite busy during the summer months but there are plenty in the area including the nudist beach at Es Trenc.

July and August can be good times to visit as the Cala d'Or International Jazz Festival is held in July each year and the Fiesta of la Mare de Deu del Mar is held in August so there is plenty to see and do from live concerts to processions and although it is not to everyone's taste it can be fun for others.


Insider's View

 by Anna Nicholas

Majorca Insider This is a perfect spot for families because the whole resort is geared up to satisfying the needs of children with good and varied menus and lots of fun activities

I always find it interesting that people have such differing views about Cala d'Or, the Golden Cove in the south east. Back in the thirties an enterprising group of artist settled here and began building white flat roofed Ibizan style cottages that soon garnered the attention of those looking for a sunny holiday idyll. Before you knew it, Cala d'Or had become a fully fledged tourist resort but more ritzy and glitzy than some of its poorer cousins in the south west.

Cala d'Or is actually made up of the town centre, Cala Egos and Cala Ferrera and there are numerous small coves dotted around its sandy horseshow bay. This is a perfect spot for families because the whole resort is geared up to satisfying the needs of children with good and varied menus and lots of fun activities such as mini golf and mini 'road' train excursions to Cala Mondrago and other local beaches. The pretty marina is home to some impressive yachts and chartered boats and many sea excursions are offered as well as champagne cruises. Most of the beaches here offer pure golden sand and clear waters which is why they act as a Mecca for locals at weekends. Scuba-diving, sailing and windsurfing are all popular pursuits, especially on Cala Gran so my advice is get up early and bag your small piece of paradise under an umbrella before the mob arrives!

If shopping gives you a buzz, you can't fare much better than strolling along Avinguda Tagomago with its swish leather and jewellery stores and galleries. Farrutx, the stylish shoe emporium, is situated nearby in Plaça Ibiza and Irocco offers designer clothes at reasonably good value. Crafts are on offer in the form of glass, pottery and olive wood carvings but if you'd like a little more variety, it's worth venturing to the village of Felanitx for the Sunday flea market where I always manage to bag a bargain or two! As for restaurants, you are simply spoilt for choice although Ca'n Troupe has an excellent reputation for fine dining and Port Petit is a lovely spot for delicious seafood suppers. Cocktail bars and discos come alive at night but this is a decorous resort and lights are out in the bay by 2am.
