Mallorca's best beaches

The relatively small island of Mallorca has beaches that dreams are made of; expanses of pure white sand, crystal clear azure sea, intimate coves below dramatic cliffs, wild natural beaches which are accessible only on foot and huge swaths of soft golden sand backed by palm trees.

Mallorca has over 120 beaches and coves dotted along its coastline – each with its own personality and unique location – and with the help of our guide you really can find your very own slice of paradise.

It would be easy for us to trot out a list of the resort beaches...but they’re easy to find and, although pretty, don’t give much of a blip on the ‘Fab-O-Meter. So we decided to do the hard work for you and listed below you’ll find some of the most spectacular beaches on the island; sparkling white sand, pretty inlets, turquoise sea, natural landscape and, best of all, most are relatively unknown. Untouched by tourism, but easy enough to find, some of these beaches prove that on Mallorca you can still experience the dream of finding that secluded beach.

So – are you ready to discover the stunning beauty of Mallorca’s beaches?
