Come to Spain
— Rafa Nadal (@RafaelNadal) July 17, 2018
Perhaps one of the best known Spaniards in the world at the moment is Mallorcan born and bred Rafa Nadal. Fresh (well perhaps not) from an epic Wimbledon semi-final defeat Rafa has been recharging his batteries in his home territory of Manacor by doing a bit of messing about in boats.
Now, not only is the boy Nadal a great tennis player, but he's also given his time and attention to charitable work and promotion of both his favoured sport and Mallorca with his academy and foundation.
This week he's been doing his bit for Spain's superb beaches, which he thinks are the best in the world, by making a short video for his Twitter account with that very message and inviting us all to come and see for ourselves. With over 15 million followers, that's a very powerful statement, and one which was made whilst moored off Cala Falco in Manacor.
It's a completely natural small sandy cove, with no facilities at all which can be reached on foot from nearby Cala Varques. Surrounded by rocks and with caves nearby, it's a place you can go to feel absolutely disconnected from the trials and tribulations of the modern world.
However, with over 120 beaches, there's something for everybody in Mallorca, and you'll probably find something to your liking in our beach guide.
