We thought Cala Mayor Main Street was very run down and lots of bars and shops are closed and up for sale. The beach is fantastic, not over crowded, very clean and the water for small children is very safe, beach bars. All very good.

The area surrounding the hotel is on the main housing with other hotels. It is very hilly and steep, steps down to the shopping area and back; there is a free shuttle bus to the beach which could be used. The beach was not spectacular by any means and it was good fortune the hotel (Belvedere Hotel) facilities were good or it could have been a long holiday.

Not a lot to do on a evening. It has a few pubs and restaurants, one beach side bar and restaurant is the perfect location for a afternoon meal.

The beach

The fine white sandy beach in Cala Mayor is 200-metres in length and 80-metres wide, it's protected on both sides by rocky outcrops keeping the water calm and clear. There are plenty of the usual facilities available with pedalos, sun-loungers and parasols available for hire as well as public showers and toilets, beach bars and restaurants. There are also ramps for wheelchair users and lifeguards on duty during the summer months.

Things to do

The Cala Nova sailing school is less than 1km from the resort centre and offers training courses for windsurfing and sailing during the peak holiday periods. The resort is also well placed for other sporting activities such as the Royal Bendinat Golf Club and the exclusive marina at Puerto Portals.

Situated in Cala Mayor is Joan Miro's old house and studio which is open to the public (Fundacio Pilar i Joan Miro) and features a large permanent exhibition of his work.

At the neighbouring village of Genova only 1km away are the Cuevas de Genova, these caves are the smallest on Majorca and may not be as impressive as the Cuevas de Drach, but interesting all the same.

Out and about

Cala Mayor offers a number of restaurants, cafes and bars serving tapas and international cuisines. Nightlife is limited within the resort, though the great feature about staying here is that it is within easy reach of the islands capital where an even wider selection of dining options, bars and nightclubs can be found.

Cala Mayor does not have a large selection of shops, though within easy walking distance is the shopping centre called Porto Pi, which offers numerous shops, eating and leisure facilities.

As a suburb of Palma, the resort has good bus connections providing a convenient way to reach neighbouring resorts.

Nearby activities

A very popular evening attraction is the Pirates Adventure (Els Pirates), which is based just outside of Magaluf (approx 8km away). A pirate themed dinner and show, with performances most evenings, there's a special late night adult's only performance in addition to the family show.

The Marineland which is located in the nearby resort of Portal Nous is a popular attraction for families with young children, the park features an aquarium with rays and sharks, and the shows includes performing sea lions, parrots and dolphins.

Further family fun can be enjoyed at the Western Waterpark found just outside the resort of Magaluf, the park is full of thrilling water-slides and fun pools for all ages to enjoy. Other fun attractions include Go-Karting and the Katmandu Fun-House both in Magaluf, and Golf Fantasia found in the heart of Palma Nova featuring three enjoyable courses.

Full of historical sites and museums Palma makes an ideal day excursion; visit the Gothic sights of La Seu Cathedral and Basilica de Sant Francesc, Palace de L'Almudaina found next to the cathedral and Castell de Bellver the only circular castle in Spain.

Enjoy the scenic train journey from Palma to Soller, it takes a magnificently picturesque route and with vintage carriages is a pleasurable and popular tourist attraction. Once in Soller you can extend your trip onto Port de Soller, where a vintage tram connects with the arrival of the train.
