Travel Agents View This quiet resort ... best suited for families with children and older couples seeking a peaceful holiday

Cala San Vicente is one of Majorca's smallest resorts and certainly the most scenic. The resort is still a working fishing village and many fishermen can be seen tending to their nets on the beach on a daily basis.

The main beach can be quite busy but the smaller ones tend to be less crowded. There is a handful of restaurants and shops with more choice available in the neighbouring resorts.

This quiet resort is only 35 miles from the airport and would be best suited for families with children and older couples seeking a peaceful holiday.

Majorca Insider It's a quiet and beautiful, somewhat solitary spot in the north of the island

I have always had a liking for Cala San Vincente, probably because it was one of the first places I visited on Majorca. It's a quiet and residential spot in the north of the island close to Pollensa and Puerto Pollensa and tucked away on the edge of the Tramuntana mountain range. The Cavall Bernat limestone ridge runs above the four pretty and secluded coves and offers some fantastic walks. As regards swimming, Cala Clara and Cala Barques are shingly once you hit the water, but Cala Molins, the larger beach has a sandy bed beneath the waves and water is turquoise and clear. At a little distance is Cala Carbó which is less busy and a great place to wile away a few hours with a book. Popular pursuits here are snorkelling and scuba diving because of the clear pristine waters.

A popular local hangout is Bar Majorca at the end of Molins Beach and also L'Alba restaurant which offers friendly service and some good fresh Mediterranean fare. Holidaymakers don't come to Cala San Vincente for nightlife although Puerta Pollensa is only a quick taxi ride away and has a good selection of cocktail bars such as the well known La Batucada and Nostalgia.

As a walker I would recommend a stroll to the nearby Coves de L'Alzineret, a pre-talayotic funeral site, and a brisk walk along the cliffs to Puerto de Pollensa, only about 40 minutes on foot. For the energetic there's a beautiful three hour walk to Puig de l'Aguila but be sure to bring lots of sun cream and water along. There are some great shops in Pollensa town as well as restaurants and bars and a large market on a Sunday in Plaça Mayor with a smaller one held in the port on a Wednesday. If you do make it to Pollensa town, pop by Ense ñat, a store selling tempting Spanish groceries such as locally produced olive oils and flavoured sea salts that make perfect gifts and while you're at it risk the schlep up the 365 steps of Calvari from the main square. Apart from being good exercise, the views from the little 18th century chapel at the summit, are wonderful and there's a little café where you can order a restorative drink!
