Cala Millor is the liveliest and largest holiday resort on Mallorca’s rugged north-east coast. The name means ‘better bay’, which is indicative of its prime attraction: a mile or more long stretch of sandy beach, which slopes gently into a crystal clear azure sea, protected at each end by rocky headlands. Sunbeds, parasols and pedalos can be hired for the day by sunseekers.
The rest of the island’s east coast is lined with inlets and coves, which are fun to explore. Cala Millor developed as a favourite tourist destination from one hotel, the Eureka, built in the 1930s, and is now a lively enclave of high-rise hotels and apartment blocks, slowly merging into neighbouring resorts along the coast, fronted by a broad pedestrian promenade along its alluring beach.
Adjacent to Millor, across the headland to the north, is the quieter and more conventional resort of Cala Bona, while a few miles to the south is the well-known resort of Sa Coma.
Cala Millor is about 40 miles from the Son Sant Joan International airport in the south of the island. The area is packed with shops, markets, entertainment venues, bars and restaurants to ensure non-stop fun in the sun, particularly fit for family holidays.
