The coastal district of Cala Millor is shared between the municipalities of Sant Llorenç des Cardassar and Son Servera. Located in the north-west of the island of Mallorca, it is the largest holiday resort in our area.
Scenery and Nature. Cala Millor’s main attraction is its extensive beach of fine sand with crystalline waters. It is almost two kilometres long with a seafront promenade that runs along its whole length. Sun –lots of sun–, sand, sea and protected marine flora are the main natural resources that identify Cala Millor. Before the tourist boom of the 1960s, Cala Millor was a long beach with a few small houses, sand dunes and the typical scrub vegetation with pine and tamarind trees, brambles, wild olive trees, junipers, thistles and the typical fauna of the eastern coasts of Mallorca.
Quality Accommodation. The first pioneering hotels were built in the 1960s in what the tourist boom would turn into a major holiday resort with a wide range of quality accommodation. The majority of hotels and apartments are on the seafront.
Cala Millor offers a wide range accommodation and complementary services all designed to give our visitors the best possible holidays.
That’s why our visitors come back year after year. They love to walk along the beach, go horse riding, cycling or walking in the nearby countryside, take advantage of the excellent sports facilities, go shopping near the sea in the warm evenings, have dinner in an excellent restaurant or go for a drink in one of the many bars and cafés.
CALA MILLOR’s wide range of quality accommodation, shops, services, attractions, scenery and the safe, tranquil nature of the area makes it ideal for families with small children and more mature holidaymakers. It is a magnificent holiday resort that attracts thousands of visitors, many of whom return year after year, generation after generation, proving its unquestionable attraction.
Shopping. A one-kilometre-long pedestrian street runs from one end of Cala Millor to the other. It has shops selling international clothing brands, jewellers, boutiques, perfumeries, souvenir, shoe and sports clothing shops, many bars and restaurants, ice cream parlours, etc.
It also has chemists’, medical services, a local police and Guardia Civil station, banks, supermarkets, car hire, taxis, children’s playgrounds, a public bus service and a mini tourist train that runs between Cala Millor, Cala Bona, S’Illot and Sa Coma from Easter week to october. There is also in Cala Millor, Sa Coma and S’Illot a weekly street market in summer.
The Local Population. The residential areas of flats and houses are mainly in the municipality of Son Servera.
Sports. The cycle lane that runs long the seafront is perfect for hiring bikes or a family-sized model and enjoying the sea air and fabulous views. If you’re looking for a more active holiday, many hiking and cycle published routes begin in Cala Millor that you can get in the tourism office of your zone; also there is a wide offer of sports facilities, gyms, spas, tennis courts, football pitches, golf courses, etc. Many of these activities are also available at the resort’s hotels. A wide range of water sports is available on the beach, including sailing, windsurfing, paddle surfing, diving and boat trips that set sail from Cala Millor (Cala Millor Beach).
Like two arms embracing the sea, from Cala Millor we can see the points of Costa dels Pins to the north and Sa Punta de n’Amer to the south. The latter is a small, almost flat peninsula between Sa Coma and Cala Millor and has been declared a Nature Area of Special Interest. It is a protected coastal nature area that, despite its small size, is home to a wide variety of landscapes including sand dunes, cultivated fields, juniper, pines, etc. and although there are no particularly high spots, it is a good lookout point over the eastern coast of Mallorca. Stroll through this nature area and you will see a wide diversity of plants and animals, as well as Es Castell (the Castle), an emblematic monument of special historical interest that have a small museum inside that you can visit all year free.
Na Penyal is a hill just two kilometres from Cala Millor with fabulous views of the whole coast. Its surroundings are ideal for hiking.
Culture. Cala Millor has its own cultural centre, Sa Màniga Auditorium, with an all-year-round programme of plays, films, art and concerts. Many of the hotels also organise entertainment and some pubs and bars have live music. The resort’s streets have many sculptures and other works of art by local artists. At the end of September the Festival of the Tourist is held.
The seafront promenade links Cala Millor to the port of Cala Bona in the north and Sa Coma to the south. Cala Millor has two tourist information offices.
