Travel Agents View a number of beautiful coves and bays with enticing crystal clear water perfect for swimming, snorkelling and scuba diving

Es Mal Pas is located on the southern shores of the Bay of Pollensa, on the edge of the Victoria Peninsula. It is a small resort and primarily a residential area that, despite being just 2km north-east of the historic Alcudia Town, enjoys a rural outlook and diverse scenery.

The Victoria Peninsula is a nature reserve, ideal for walkers and those who appreciate natural surroundings. The area is rich with pine forests, where you can stop for lunch in one of the picnic areas. The backdrop for much of the area is the mountain and, if you follow the path to the top, you will be rewarded with spectacular views of both Alcudia Bay and the Pollensa Bay. There are also a number of beautiful coves and bays with enticing crystal clear water perfect for swimming, snorkelling and scuba diving.

The sandy beach in the resort is Cala San Pere and there is also the secluded sandy cove of Cala San Juan, both of which have shallow clear waters and, enjoy views over the Pollensa Bay to Formentor peninsula and the Tramuntana mountains. Just along from the beach is the Puerto Cocodrilo marina where you can roam around the boats and sailing vessels or enjoy a meal on the terrace of it's restaurant, which serves locally caught fresh fish and traditional Majorcan dishes. Other amenities at Es Mal Pas include several restaurants, a supermarket, a scuba diving centre and a kayak centre.

Nearby resorts and attractions include the lively Puerto d'Alcudia (4km), Alcanada and it's 18 hole golf course (5km) and tranquil, Es Barcares (3km). El Mal Pas is approx. 60km from Palma Airport.

Insider's View

Majorca Insider close to a nature reserve which is ideal for keeping children entertained with picnics and not too arduous walks

The pretty resort of Es Mal Pas is on the Victoria peninsula and lies to the north of Alcudia on the Bay of Pollensa close to a nature reserve. It is a centre for all types of water sports such as wind and kite surfing and the golf courses at Pollensa and Aucanada are close by.

This is an ideal centre for exploring the unspoilt surrounding countryside and yet the resort shoulders several sophisticated larger resorts. A popular restaurant is Cocodrilo Marina which offers a fine selection of freshly caught fish and Mediterranean dishes.

There are many cultural trips to be had in the area, not least a visit to the Medieval fortified town of Alcudia which has the remains of the Roman town of Pollentia on its doorstep and offers the visitor an excellent selection of cafés, bars and restaurants. Head for Plaça Constitucio and try the Plaça restaurant for good Majorcan fare. The town is also great for shopping and has a market on a Tuesday and Saturday.

Beyond Alcudia and Port d'Alcudia there are some fantastic attractions such as the Ermita de la Victoria which dates back to the 1400's, and for children there's Hidropark, the pool complex. For nature lovers the real gems are S'Albufera, a wetland nature reserve where 230 bird species hang out, and the monastery of Ermita de Betlem on the eastern shores of the bay. Another treat is Fundación Yannick y Ben Jakober up the coast, an art gallery of historic children's portraits that also has a beautiful sculpture park.
