Cala Mesquida Holidays

Travel Agents View as quiet at night as it is during the day with entertainment being hotel based

The focal point of this purpose built resort has got to be the beach and the surrounding sand dunes. Cala Mesquida proves to be very popular with families and older couples due to the safe waters and relaxing atmosphere.

The resort is just as quiet at night as it is during the day with entertainment being hotel based. There are a few bars, restaurants and shops dotted around the village but if you are looking for a lively night out or a day at the shops you could take the 2 hour bus trip to Palma or visit one of the closer resorts such as Cala Ratjada which is just 8km away.

Majorca Insider Anyone in search of peace and relaxation need look no further with its heavenly pristine beach backed by undulating golden sand dunes and craggy rocks and pine forests

There is something magical about this purpose built village resort on the north east coast which many moons ago once served as a pirates smuggling centre. Anyone in search of peace and relaxation need look no further than Cala Mesquida with its heavenly pristine beach backed by undulating golden sand dunes and craggy rocks and pine forests. With its crystal clear waters ideal for safe swimming, this has to be one of the best beaches on the island although it does get a little busy at the height of the season. I also like Cala Agulla, a large sandy beach a mere stroll away and Cap des Freu where you can witness the Balearic islands' largest colony of seagulls and cormorants-always fun for children.

This is a haven for windsurfers and water sport fanatics but if sea and surf don't rock your boat, there are good stables nearby and some excellent nature trails. The resort is built around the beach and everything is in easy access with small supermarkets, gift shops and great value seafood restaurants and bars overlooking the bay. I'd be a liar if I said this was the place for nightlife but Cala Ratjada is only a short distance away offering an energetic array of clubs, discos and cocktail bars.

One of my favourite landmarks at Cala Mesquida is Talaia de Son Jaumell, an old watchtower and from here you can take the nature trail to Cala Agulla (also known as Cala Nou). A little word of warning, sometimes there can be some big waves hitting the beach at Mesquida so keep the nippers playing on the sand and make sure to accompany them into the sea.

Nearby attractions include the charming old town of Arta with its 700 year old Sanctuary of Sant Salvador and its famous caves. Capdepera's 14th century castle - the largest fortress on the island- is worth a visit and includes a fascinating museum with interesting historical artefacts. For gifts, the market at Capdepera held every Wednesday, is worth a visit, as is the Saturday market in Plaça del Pins in Cala Ratjada. For golf enthusiasts both Canyamel and Capdepera offer excellent courses.
