Holidays to Cala d'Or
Located on the southeast coast of Majorca, holidays to Cala d' Or are centered around the delightful two-mile stretch of sandy beaches and rocky coves. Cala d' Or is unrecognisable from the traditional fishing village it once was, this chic resort now boasts a good range of shops and bars, a marina, yacht club and fine restaurants, however you can still find some traditional whitewashed Spanish houses as well as the beautiful beaches. The marina is the perfect spot to unwind over a coffee and watch the luxury yachts come sailing into the pretty harbour. The main street called the Avinguda Tagomago is a magnet for shopping enthusiasts who come to browse or buy in the elegant boutiques, designer shops and art galleries.
Hotels and much of the accommodation in Cala d' Or are dotted along the resort's two-mile stretch of coastline, this is divided in to seven main coves. Cala Gran is the largest, it has the longest of the sandy beaches, which is lapped by crystal clear waters and dotted with sun loungers and sunshades. This beach has water sports and is popular with sunbathers and swimmers alike. The harbour is lined with a good selection of fine restaurants and pavement cafes that offer superb dining, including, the locally caught seafood.
