6. Es Trenc | Mallorca

The largest beach Mallorca has to offer is 3.5 km long and 60 meters wide. White sandy beach, backed by sand dunes and if you wouldn’t know you could really think your on a Caribbean island.

Negative parts are that it can really crowded in high season and there are not a lot of facilities such as sanitary or fresh water showers. Also free parking is limited, paid parking is available.

7. Cala Varques | Mallorca

Cala Varques is not easily found, but perfect for people who are looking for the most quiet beaches of Mallorca. Think of it as part the attraction, park your car in the lane and walk for a 15 minutes through pines down to the cove. The clear turquoise water and the beach with a hippy vibe is waiting for you there. But make sure to bring your own food and drinks, because besides of the few free spirits selling in the high season you can’t count on that because the nearest town is 10 kilometeres away.

The most beautiful beach in Mallorca is Calo des Moro. It’s privately owned and not easily found and reached. The walk is about 15 minutes and you have to climb down the rocks to get to the really small beach where it can easily be overcrowded. So visit this beach off-season if you don’t like that.
