Cala d’ Or is a very pleasant resort located at the southeast part of the Mallorcan coas, at the municipality of Santanyi.
In the past decades, Cala d’ Or has transformed from a quiet, typical fishing village to an impressively developed resort, stretching for more than 4 kms among little beaches covered with sand.
Fortunately, this development happened gradually and keeping the Mallorcan traditional style was taken under consideration. As a result, the visitors feel like being in a little town.
Among the numerous coves on the coastline of Cala d’Or, the biggest one is Cala Llonga. It has been formed to serve as a marina, creating a natural barrier that separates the two sides of the resort.
Visitors can find most of the attractions gathered at the pedestrian area located at the city centre around Cala Gran. There are many different shops, warm local restaurants and lively bars. However, facilities commonly found in larger resorts to practice golf or other activities are not available.
The beach after which the town is named is a magnificent small cove with clear waters, surrounded by pine trees. As it is a small but popular beach, it attracts big crowds in mid-summer.
If you wish to tae a small trip from Cala d’ Or, you can either explore a more exotic beach or visit a local market.
Es Trenc is a picturesque beach with crystal clear water, where you can enjoy the shade of pine trees and the dunes formed by fine sand.
Felanitx is well known for the local market held on Sunday mornings, where you can find ceramics made by locals. If you like negotiating with the producers for a bargain, you will enjoy shopping there. Fruits, vegetables and other local products are sold in a market at Santanyi, on Wednesdays and Saturdays in the morning.
Nightlife in Cala d’ Or can be found mostly in hotels and alternatively at the buzzing warm bars in the centre of the town, at the pedestrian area. In general, the resort is an excellent choice for those who wish to relax in their holidays and have a few options for entertainment at the same time.
