CALÓ DES MORO
Only if you are south you will enjoy this beach in Santanyí. We recommend to go early to spare you the crowd as it is one of the most popular beaches during the summer. Do not miss, the Pontàs, a rock eroded by the waves that looks like a bridge over the water.
6 Coves in Mallorca
A cascade of freshwater seas in this dreamscape. To get there you must venture 17 kilometers from Valldemossa. A hidden place with a special charm, perfect for a summer getaway.
If you like trends and want to know where to spend the summer somewhere famous, this is your place. Not only you will enjoy the heat, sun and sea, but you can feel like a celebrity! The white sand disappears resulting in the gravel. We recommend you walk through it and experience its fishing tradition.

We’ll give only one fact: in 1991 Cala Mesquida was declared Corner Special Tourist Interest by the Balearic Parliament. To get there you must walk seven kilometers from Capdepera. Worth a visit, right?
If you are of those that you like natural environments and mountains, get close to Manacor where you will find the Cala Mendia. You will be surprised with its surroundings as it is more similar to a natural pool bathed in white and blue tones. A fun recommendation is to visit the Cala Anguilla and swim there.
This is another point of the island frequently visited by celebrities. A hidden corner in a landscape of pine trees and rocks that surround this paradise of white sand. The place is frequented by VIPs of the island.
