What to do in Cala D'Or?

Cala Dor is one of the main tourist centers in the east part of Mallorca, located in the municipality of Santanyi, with about 3,500 inhabitants. Its origin is in 1932 when the marina of Cala Llonga was built, being one of the first yacht clubs in Spain. Cala Dor is based on tourism, so it offers an important tourist infrastructure, with hotels, beaches, bars .... From Cala Dor there are many things to do and places to visit and endless organized excursions to different tourist attractions in Mallorca.

Spend a day at the Beach: Cala Gran or Cala Esmeralda

Cala Dor is a sun, sea and sand beach destination and therefore one of the most important highlights will be to enjoy some of its beaches. On this stretch of five kilometers of coastline you will find many coves, such as Cala Sa Nau, Cala Mitjana (small and difficult to access), Cala Serena, Cala Gran or Cala Esmeralda. Cala Gran is a beach of fine sand and rock, bathed in crystal clear waters and surrounded by small cliffs and pines. Cala Esmeralda receives its name "Emerald" from the blue-green hue that the sea acquires when it comes into contact with the sun's rays. It is a small cove of sand and rocks, nestled between rocks. It is protected from the winds, with moderate waves, its crystal clear waters invite you to swim. On both of these beaches you can rent sunbeds and umbrellas and you you will find beach bars too. Take your snorkel mask and when you go for a swim in these beautiful waters you can do some snorkelling too.

Enjoy a Boat trip in Cala Dor

For those who like to do boat trips, the different beaches of Cala Dor have small piers from where boat trips are made along the coast to different destinations such as Cala Figuera, Cala Mondrago or Porto Colom. You can choose a cheap and cheerful family glass bottom boat trip that the kids will love and won't be too long for them or you can really go for luxury on one of the fabulous sailing boat or sailing catamaran tours with swim stops at different beaches or coves, snorkel and paddle surf material included and with food and drink. This will be one of the best days out of your holiday.

A walk around Cala Dor

We can take a walk around Cala Dor and visit the marina, whose site was originally an old boat shelter and where the marina was built in 1970, which has numerous nautical services, a shopping area and numerous restaurants. While we walk we can enjoy the typical architecture of white houses with low height and flat roof of this resort, which in a way resembles the style in Ibiza.

In Cala Dor there are hardly any monuments of interest, the most remarkable is the Forti, a fortress built in 1730 during the War of Succession to protect the bay and rebuilt in 1793, from where excellent views can be seen.

Visit the weekly market

Every Sunday from 6pm to 11pm, at the Costa Square, there is a night market held during the summer, for those who want to do some shopping. This is a fantastic place to pick up gift and souvenirs for people back home or for yourself, as there are many stalls with handmade jewellery, crafts, pottery and many other artisan items. It being a night market, there is a great atmosphere of strolling and relax, and it is very nice to have a drink or an ice cream in one of the bars or restaurants in the square as you enjoy the market vibes.

Activities near Cala dor

It's true that there are not many activities to do on Cala Dor other than the usual beach, bars and souvenir shops, but there are some things to do even if you don't want to leave the area. For example you can go for a massage at Quincho Messages - well, you deserve to relax on your holidays after all. You can take a ride on the mini train. This is a tractor-pulled carriage that will take you sightseeing around the resort and which you can use to get from place to place within the resort too, especially as now you can buy a day-pass for a flat rate. Discover Cala Dor's nightlife at the clubs and bars, such as Decades or Bongos. Or if you are feeling adventurous, give scuba diving a try. There are several reputable dive centres in Cala Dor and they will take you on 3-4 hour tours that will help you fall in love with a world you never knew existed.

Visit the town of Felanitx

Among the nearby towns, we have villages like Felanitx, Santanyi (visit that we can combine with its market and Es Trenc beach), Ses Salines or Colonia de Sant Jordi, from where the boat trip to the neighboring island of Cabrera takes place. This boat trip to Cabrera is one of the most popular excursions we have on the web.

Near Felanitx we find the Puig de San Salvador with its monastery, from where we have fantastic views of the island. Another recommended visit is the Castle of Santueri nearby.

The Mondrago nature Parc

The natural park of Mondrago, where there are four self-guided routes to tour the area and finish with a swim from one of its stunning beaches is also a must-visit when staying in this area of Mallorca. Walkers will enjoy trekking along the coast, showing the wilderness of this area of the island. This is one of the most beautiful natural areas in Mallorca and the visitor centre offers lots of information about flora, fauna and in particular about the migratory birds that visit the park annually. All the trails are perfectly marked, and are easy to follow. This constitutes a great day out in Mallorca.

Go for a nice meal at the Marina de Cala Dor

Stroll down Cala Dor's marina and you will see how the other half really live: the yachts are to die for. The area is beautiful with cocktails bars, chill out bars, white bars and a mixture of trendy restaurants and traditional restaurants. There is a relaxed vibe perfectly suited to the holiday mood. Stroll through the harbour and see which restaurants take your fancy. You are guaranteed a great meal of fresh fish, seasonal veg and excellent wine. There is lots of choice but you won't regret ordering the catch of the day. This area is ideal for couples, with such a romantic vibe, but it is also perfectly suited to families looking for a great evening out or just for an ice cream.

Explore Secluded Beaches: Es Forti and Cala des Pou

If you've already exhausted Cala Dor's five coves and fancy checking out the beaches a little further afield, you won't be disappointed when you discover Es Forti and Cala des Pou, two small coves around 2km outside Cala Dor. You will find white sand, big palm trees and crystal clear waters. Above all, you'll find peace and quiet. Despite their proximity to Cala Dor, the small coves of Es Forti and Cala des Pou are off the beaten track and are the perfect places to sunbathe or snorkel with tranquility.
