Your perfect holiday accommodation in Cala d’Or

Holidaymakers naturally love the smart, modern resort of Cala d’Or. In addition to the idyllic, sheltered cove beaches, the town itself has an attractive Andalucian ‘pueblo’ feel to it, neither too big nor too small.

After a pleasant siesta, it’s time to explore all the Cala d’Or area has to offer. As the sun begins to set you take a stroll around the resort’s delightful marina checking out the millionaire yachts before stopping for a refreshing beer in one of the small harbour side café-bars.
Feeling a little peckish, you settle on one of the local restaurants. Seafood appears to be the order of the day here, so you choose something tasty such as ‘paella marisco’ (seafood paella) from the menu, as well as a bottle of chilled white Mallorcan wine to compliment.
After a post-prandial digestif you make your way home to your holiday villa in the barmy evening light. It’s been a busy first day in Cala d’Or and you sleep like a log. Because tomorrow your real holiday begins with a fabulous boat trip!
How to get to – and around – Cala d’Or
