When we think of holidays in Majorca, our mind automatically wanders to the hidden coves with turquoise waters, surrounded by dunes, rock cliff faces and impeccable blue sky. Majorca is an earthly paradise that everyone always wants to visit. The best destination for a romantic escape, family holidays or group trips. Within the island, there are lots different mini destination to choose from. Today we are just going to talk about two which, for us, are the most special that exist on this spectacular mediterranean terrain: Playa de Muro and Cala Millor.

Playa de Muro is located in the north, between the municipalities of Alcudia and Muro, very close to Pollensa port and the incredible Cap de Formentor, a bit away from legendary beaches like those in Can Picafort, Alcudia and Son Serra de Marina. A combo of tourist hotspots with grand hotels and all kinds of facilities designed especially for leisure and entertainment for visitors that come in their thousands every year to visit this protected natural zone.

This combo is one of the main attractions and one of the reasons why, year after year, Playa de Muro is chosen by visitors as one of the best destinations in Europe for summer holidays.

The beach is the centre of everything: immense at 15 km, with a large part of it situated within the natural park (S´’Albufera, the largest wetland in Majorca) with ever-calm waters. Crystal-clear blue, with white tints, greenish and turquoise. The fine, white-sand beach is ideal for spending the whole day enjoying the sun underneath a parasol, playing volleyball on improvised courts and having a snack at one of the many beach bars spotted along the shoreline.

This is one of the most-recommended beaches for children as the water is quite shallow and it takes you quite a bit of time before water reaches your waist. Waves, except for on windier days, are practically non-existent with lifeguard posts spotted every few metres. One of the zones, the nearest one to Alcudia beach, boasts more waves and so is normally where you will find kitesurfing enthusiasts practicing their favourite sport.

What to do in Playa de Muro:

-Enjoy sunsets at a beach club.

-Practice kite surfing or kayaking.

-Enjoy a paella at one of the beach bars.

-Play tennis.

-Visit the S’Albufera Natural Park.
