As a Spanish resort town, there are many things to do at Calas de Majorca. For beach lovers, Calas de Mallorca has three small sandy coves called Cala Antena, Cala Domingos Gran and Cala Domingos Petit, all of which offer the usual selection of pedalos and water sports to choose from. The largest of the three beaches is Cala Domingos, which does carry the European Blue flag for cleanliness, but at a little less than 100 m wide it can become very crowded during summer weekends. There are many water sports available throughout the resort, which include jet skiing, sea kayaking, snorkeling, and scuba diving, although the main dive sites are located on the southwestern part of the island.
On the way from Calas de Majorca to Porto Cristo is the Caves of Hams which is famous for their peculiar formations, and for the marvelous underground lake. There are also flamingos, a children’s zoo and a garden containing several varieties of cactus. Next door to the Caves of Drach is the “Aquarium de Mallorca”, a small aquarium with exotic fish from around the world including piranhas and electric eels.
All the shops, bars and restaurants are compactly built around the ‘Centro Comercial’ which should suffice for the everyday essentials of holiday life, but in all fairness to the resort, if you do move away from the hotel and apartment complexes there are few other family attractions or activities in the town.
Overall, the resort is quiet and generally relaxed, and is perhaps most suited to those visitors looking for a base from which to explore the east coast more, although the public transportation network is fairly limited on the east side of the island, there are daily buses during the summer time that take passengers from the resort to Palma, Porto Cristo, and the town of Manacor. Renting a bike is a good way to spend the day, as there are many interesting areas around the resort that are accessible by bike.
All things considered, Calas de Mallorca does tend to attract families for spending their weekend. So hurry up and get your ticket for enjoying finest weekend break!
