Some people know Mallorca for its German and English tourists, all-inclusive hotels and crowded beaches. But it also offers beautiful landscapes, small and clean beaches and delicious food.
In this post I’d like to introduce you to some of the gems of the island. Small hidden beaches in Mallorca where you will have to do a little work out to get there but once there you will not want to leave again.
1. Cala de Bóquer
From one of the back roads of Puerto Pollensa at the so called Urbanització de Bóquer starts the path to the Bay of Bóquer. You have to cross a couple of private properties so make sure that you close all gates behind you. The trail itself isn’t very long, it’s about 3-4 km’s one way. You will cross the northern part of the Tramuntana mountain range and will arrive at a little bay, which is otherwise only accessible by boat. Here you won’t find many people and if you do, they are probably locals!
It’s a very small and rocky bay but a beautiful way to end a little hike by jumping in the turquoise water.
2. Cala del Castell
One of the least visited bays of Mallorca is the Cala del Castell in Ternelles. The reason it’s one of the least visited is because a private property is between you and the bay. Until 2010 no one was allowed to enter this property since the omnipresent March family owns it. Since 2010 up to 20 people per day are allowed to enter and cross the private property to the bay.
To be allowed to enter and cross the March property you need to apply in writing to the municipality. To receive the email address you need to call at 971 53 01 08. They will give you an e-mail address where you can state your requested date and the number of people in your group. It might take a while until you receive your written authorization. Once you received it you are good to go!
3. Es Caragol
Located in the southern part of Mallorca close to Santanyi you will find Es Caragol. It’s a 500m long stretch of unspoilt sand beach surrounded by sand dunes. To get there you need to walk at least 30 minutes from the closest car park. Park your car at Cap de Ses Salines close to the lighthouse and walk northwest near the seashore for half an hour.
There are many more beautiful beaches, some a more and others are less beautiful! If you visit Mallorca you should travel around and find the perfect beach for your needs!
