Port de Cala d’Or

Port de Cala d’Or is located in Cala Llonga due to space, access and winds. Cala Llonga provides sufficient room for nearly 600 moorings and with the exception of strong easterly winds, it is sheltered and well protected from the weather.

The beautiful marina is very well equipped and includes the Cala d’Or Yacht Club, most of which is open to non-members. On the quayside, you will find a good assortment of supermarkets, exclusive shops, boutiques, bars and restaurants.

Port de Cala d’Or has a 30,000 m2 offshore berthing esplanade and provides all of the services you would expect to find in a modern marina including mechanical assistance, technical service, cleaning & hull treatment.

Cala d’Or, often referred to as the ‘Golden Bay’ is a very popular holiday resort particularly suited to families located in the southeast of the island.

The name ‘Golden Bay’ derives from the fact that it is located furthest away from the Serra de Tramuntana mountains; which have a disruptive effect on weather patterns and therefore it benefits from increased sunshine hours. It also happens to be close to some of the best beaches in Mallorca.

The marina is one of the largest in Mallorca behind the more popular marinas of Puerto PortalsPalmaPort Adriano and Andratx.

The resort is attractive due to its multitude of small scenic coves and sandy beaches, these being Cala Ferrera, Cala Esmeralda, Cala Serena, Cala Gran, and Cala Llonga with each of these having their own distinctive character & main street where you will find the typical assortment of souvenir shops, pubs & restaurants.

Each of the coves benefit from charming little beaches framed by cliffs and woodland; however being small, they do get very crowded during the summer months.

Local attractions include The 18th-century historic fort ‘Es Fortí ’ and the ‘Parc Natural de Mondragó’ nature reserve.

Cala Marçal

The Blue Flag spacious beach Cala Marcal is located on the eastern coast of the island 1km south of the marina and village of Portocolom.

The 500 m beach lies within a beautiful well-protected bay with rocks on both sides, fine white sand and clear waters. It is very popular, particularly during the summer months when it can get quite crowded.

Cala Marcal is ideal for families. The soft sand slopes into the sea; which is shallow and deepens gradually providing lots of space for the kids to swim and play.

On the beach, you will find all of the facilities you could need such as sun lounges, parasols, showers and toilets and during the summer peak season, the beach is also supervised by a lifeguard. There is also one large beach bar serving a good assortment of drinks and snacks.

Cala Marcal is popular with snorkelers because of the rocks but mostly, this is a beach for families, it is very safe and around the beach you will find everything you could need including shops, bars & restaurants.

Taking the car to Cala Marcal is easy, parking is available in the streets just south of the beach.

The local village of Portocolom is a sleepy, attractive traditional fishing village located on the east coast and is claimed rather dubiously as the birthplace of Christopher Columbus, although there is little evidence to support this.

Resisting the usual tourist onslaught associated with picturesque coastal villages, Portocolom is a maritime town located on a beautiful deep natural harbour in a large horseshoe-shaped bay.

Lying 12km north of Cala d’Or and within the district of Felanitx, Portocolom has retained much of its traditional fishing village charm with fishing boats, sailing boats and the occasional luxury motor yacht anchored in the calm waters of the bay.
