Welcome to Villa and Apartment Holidays in MajorcaMajorca has so much to offer for your holidays. Its not all Magalluf or tower blocks contrary to some people. The East of Majorca has something for everyone and has tranquility, and romantic coves as well as a fantastic nightlife and restaurants with mouth watering dishes!
Cala D'orCala d'Or today is a modern purpose built resort that has grown from a small traditional Mallorcan fishing village. Over the years the resort has expanded, and now covers an area of over 4km of small sandy coves and creeks.
The largest of these coves is called Cala Llonga, which has been developed into a large marina that effectively splits the resort in two.
The main part of the town centre is a pedestrian zone around the area of Cala Gran, which has a varied selection of shops, bars and restaurants.
The beach at Cala Gran is the largest in the town, but at 40m wide and 100m deep it makes it perfect for families with young children. The next cove on is Cala d'Or itself, from which the resort takes its name. This is a pine fringed cove with a small beach. Sun loungers, parasols and pedaloes can be hired at both of these beaches. In addition, there is also around 8 or 9 other smaller sandy coves in the area.
If the beaches at Cala d'Or become too crowded or if you wish to escape from Cala d'Or for the day, many visitors take the morning bus to Es Trenc. This beautiful beach of clear blue water and golden sand, backed by pine trees and dunes, stretches for almost 5km along the wild south eastern coast of the island. There's a small bar-restaurant here and you can hire sun umbrellas, but there are few other facilities and the beach rarely gets packed with bodies. Be warned though, Es Trenc is popular with nudists and the bodies that you do see are likely to be bare.
Cala EgosThis resort is on the other side of Cala Llonga (marina) and although it is still part of Cala Dor it goes by the name of Cala Egos (named after its own cove). The beach here is quite small and has a couple of large hotels although no hotel actually owns the beach as none of the beaches are private. The main strip of Cala Egos has shops, bars and restaurants as well as the typical souvenir shops that you will find in all parts of the island selling its many trinkets. The local mini tourist train stops here to pick up on its way to Cala Mondrago and Cala Dor.
Cala FerreraThere is a long strip with many bars, restaurants and shops as well as the lovely Cove of Cala Ferrera and the smaller coves of Cala Esmeralda and Cala Serena. There is a childrens area at the end of the strip called Mallorcalandia that also has a bar! So mums and dads you can sit and watch your children on the trampoline or on the childrens train going around the track whilst you enjoy and cool refreshing beer!! (the majorcans have thought of everything!)
Porto ColomThe main feature of this quaint village is the large natural harbour which is the home to a number of small fishing boats and an ever increasing number of leisure craft. If you explore further into the centre of Porto Colom it will take you into the typical "tourist section" where you will find the bars, shops and restaurants. The front has amazing restaurants that on entering you are transformed from the fishing village into a modern and trendy atmosphere.
FelanitxThis is an old spanish town away from the hustle and bustle of the tourists and the beaches. On a Sunday this town is transformed by its Sunday market that takes place in the main square and goes all the way up and past the church. You will find everthing from and indoor market just behind the church selling everything from meat and sausages on one side, fish on the other side and fruit and veg in the middle. The outdoor market you can buy anything from shoes, belts, souvenirs to chickens and rabbits. Whatever you decide to buy dont forget to have a go at knocking down the asking price (thats what makes it fun!)
Cala MondragoThis is a lovely long stretch of beach surrounded by many trees and also has a beach bar. This is where you will also find the nature reserve. Once you are on the beach of Cala Mondrago you can follow the path around the beach which will then take you to S'Amarador. If you are in the area this is definately a place to visit.
