1. Cala Murta
Located 15km from the port of Pollença you will find this rather quiet cove. It is an inlet of 180m surrounded by cliffs and green pine trees. Because there are rarely any waves it is the perfect place to take a relaxing swim and spend a quiet summer afternoon. And if you feel adventurous after sunbathing, you can visit the Cap de Formentor, which is located only a couple of kilometers away.

2. Cala Mesquida
On the northeast coast of Mallorca, backed by dunes, you will find the cove Mesquida. It is a long stretch of sandy beach. In 1991 the nature surrounding it was declared “area of special interest” by the Balearic government to help protect its wild beauty. It is popular with families due to its big sandy area and the clearness of the water.Cala Mesquida
