Caragol Beach Mallorca

A paradise away from any civilization located in the south of the MaLLorcan island
One of the biggest virgin beaches of Mallorca, far from any urban center, only has in its vicinity the Cap Salines Lighthouse.

Its surroundings are formed by a fabulous and pristine dune system and rocky barriers, as well as some vestiges of the Spanish civil war.

Cala Serena Beach Mallorca

As its name declares, this small sandbank is full of serenity beneath the sun. The perfect place to get away from our daily routines.
Cala Serena is a small and calm sandbank with a nearby residential area called Cala Serena, which means there are a few swimmers, no like the neighbouring Cala Ferrera. However, it is still the ideal place to hide away among nature and crystalline waters.

Cala d’Or, Cala Mitjana

At only a few kilometres from Cala d’Or, Cala Mitjana is a beautiful clear water cove. It is not easily accessible, but it’s worth it.
Cala Mitjana is rather a small beach. Only 30 metres wide, it is covered with wonderful white sand. It is relatively difficult to get there since there is no road, but this becomes an advantage since it is rarely full (except for the months of July and August when it is high season in the island, of course)
