INTRODUCING CALA BLAVA
Spend lazy days on the beaches, or don your snorkel and seek out colourful sea life. Climb the cliffs for panoramic views, and then trace the coastline, stopping off at historic fishing villages. Or head into lively Palma and explore the city’s sights and sounds, culture and cuisine. Peaceful Cala Blava blends the best of a sleepy Spanish beach retreat with the draw of a cosmopolitan city break.
Cliffs, coves and charming villages in this quiet corner of Mallorca.
Things to do
Known as the ‘Blue Cove’, Cala Blava is home to a dazzling array of fish and forms part of a protected marine reserve. Paddle in the clear waters of a rocky inlet or snorkel in calm, warm seas. Time it right and you may even have your very own private pebble bay.
Challenge yourself to a round at Golf Maioris, a championship course in a sublime spot. Here the air carries the scent of the surrounding pine, olive and carob trees as you play your way around lakes and islands. Or channel Jack Nicklaus and try the exclusive Golf Park Puntiró – designed by the great man himself.
If you’re craving culture and architecture, Cala Blava is perfectly placed for days out in Palma. But escape inland and you’ll find a region peppered with historical wonders. Pay a visit to Capocorb to wander around this preserved prehistoric village and typical Mallorcan talayots.
Before heading home, stop off in nearby Llucmajor. This town has been a centre of shoemaking for centuries – the perfect place to find a new pair to take home with you.
