Cala Millor – The Beautiful and Complete Resort

Cala Millor is a great choice for a holiday destination in Mallorca because it has everything you could want. Cala Millor’s beautiful Blue Flag beach is 1-½ kilometres in length, and is one of the best sandy beaches on the east coast of Mallorca. The water is quiet shallow and the beach is reasonably safe, and there are lifeguards in attendance. You can hire parasols and sun beds on this beach on a daily basis and there are showers as well.

There is a very nice promenade running along side of the beach, where you will see people walking, cycling, roller-skating and relaxing in the many cafes, bars and restaurants. You can actually walk north on the beach promenade to the gorgeous harbour of Cala Bona. On the way to Cala Bona, you will notice a jetty on the promenade, where you can book boat trips. Towards the south end of the Cala Millor Beach, you will find the nature path of Punta d’Amer. The footpath will lead you up to the headland, where you will find a small Castle and a very nice outdoor café/restaurant that serves food and drinks. The footpath continues south leading towards Sa Coma Resort and Beach.

The tourist information office is located on the promenade in the vicinity of the chill out café, Cafe de Sol.

If you like to cycle, there are many shops that rent bicycles. this resort is the perfect resort for cycling, especially since the new cycle paths have been created in this resort as well as the resort of Cala Bona This new interior cycle path of Cala Bona will take you up to Son Servera where the market is held on Friday mornings. You can also take a bus (the Blue and White bus) to Son Servera.

For those of you with children, there is a children’s amusement centre called Fantasy Park on the Avenida Bahia de Llevant, where the children can play on bouncy castles, trampolines. There are also two go-kart tracks on this same road.

May 12th – May 15th 2011, The European Tour event took place at Pula Golf club in Son Servera, Mallorca.. This event is the Iberdrola Open Cala Millor. The course is located on the Ma4040 highway just a few kilometres north of Son Servera.

2011, The 20th Vuelta Mallorca Cycling Challenge.

The towns of Cala Millor and Son Servera will host the second day of this popular event.

The stage winner for this event was Tyler Farrar representing the USA team, Garmin.

I have added some photos that we took of this stage.

For further information about this event please visit Vueltamallorca website.

Driving information update

Good news for drivers that would normally take the road through Son Servera. The Baleares government announced a €13,000,000 by-pass highway around Son Servera. The new road will start from the roundabout next to the Repsol garage and finish at the Ma 4040 highway from Manacor to Capdepera.

The old railway line that was in the process of been re-connected ran out of financing. It has now been converted into the “Via Verde” cycle and hiking trail running from Manacor to Arta. This track has been fenced in and trees planted the full length.

In Cala Millor you will have your choice of hotels from 2 star up to 5 star.

 If you are a sun worshipper, I can guarantee you will absolutely love Playa Cala Millor beach. It is an extensive beach that is regarded as being the best on the island of Majorca. Located between two rocky headlands, this beach is kept exceptionally clean. It is very popular in summer months, but even in the winter months, people are seen walking and/or jogging up and down its gorgeous shoreline. When my mother came to visit several years ago, she always wanted to come back to this beach. It’s our favourite beach as well.

You can have a really fun-filled day on this beach with the many water sport activities on offer (windsurfing, waterskiing, paragliding etc.).

There are glass-bottom boat tours from the jetty at the north end of the beach that travel between Cala Ratjada and Port Cristo, making stops at Cala Bona, Sa Coma and S’Illot. Sometimes, these boats make a stop to allow you to have a refreshing swim.

We can highly recommend Cala Millor as your holiday choice as it boasts plenty of bars, discos, shops and wonderful restaurants to allow you to experience a great holiday in Mallorca. It is a great resort for families, singles, and couples alike, and it is great to know that it is wheel chair and pushchair friendly.

The lovely promenade is tiled with engraved fish. When the fish engraved tiles run out you have entered neighbouring Cala Bona. Cala Millor has an attractive garden called the Parc de la Mar right in the centre of the resort. The tourist information office is located near this park.

There are some cycle shops in this resort where you can rent bikes. I think Cala Millor is a great place to cycle around, especially since the new cycle paths have been created in this resort and its neighboring resort Cala Bona. In fact, you can easily cycle through both resorts along the promenade. If you are feeling energetic, the new interior cycle path will take you uphill to Son Servera, where there is a weekly market on Friday morning. The cycle journey is much easier on the way back to the resort. If you’re not a cyclist, or not feeling so energetic, look for the blue and white Son Servera bus that will take you directly to the market.

There is a child-friendly area on Avenida Bahia de Llevant ideal for children. It is called Fantasy Park and it offers the children great excitement with bouncy castles, trampolines, and a variety of other rides sure to keep the children happy. There is also a go-kart track on this same road.

If you come to Cala Millor in October, you can enjoy the International Regatta and see hot air balloons from across Europe and United States.

We can recommend the following bars and restaurants in Cala Millor:

We have many good friends in this area including Tony and Ange at the extremely popular Sportsmans Bar, just down the road from the Tourist Information booth. If you reach the Fantasy Park, you have gone too far. Just listen out for the music, you’ll find it. They feature karaoke every evening. This bar always has a “full of fun” atmosphere, and the service is excellent. I suggest that you arrive early to get the best seating. In the morning, Tony cooks up a very hearty English breakfast and his Sunday Lunch (especially the Lamb Roast) is irresistible. In fact, people have a hard time passing by without stopping in to have one.

Our favourite Mallorquin restaurant in this resort is Bonanza, where you can devour a mouth-watering Entrecote Steak cooked to perfection by Sebastian straight off the BBQ. The Pork Tenderloin Steak (Pork Steak) is my husband’s favourite, and the Lamb Chops are simply gorgeous. I should mention that the chips here are to die for, so make sure you order loads, or you’ll be ordering another plate, guaranteed. You can order a bottle of wine at this restaurant for a very reasonable price. Tony, Sebastian’s son will ensure you are well looked after. This restaurant has a genuine Spanish atmosphere.

Pirandello Restaurant on Son Corp Street in the interior of the resort is our favourite Italian food restaurant. They specialise in Pizza and they offer a take away service, but you must order at the counter. Their lasagna, spaghetti, and combination pasta dishes are exquisite. We always feel welcomed in Pirandello Restaurant. When you dine in the restaurant, they offer a tasty little appetiser dish of mini pizzas as a starter “absolutely free”.

“La Siesta” Bar and Restaurant Calle de Alosa 5 (near the promenade in Cala Millor)

One December day, Colin went to check our Post Box to see if we had received any mail. The box did not contain any mail; however, there was a business card, with a “Feliz Navidad” message, left by Matthias and Michaela, owners of a newly opened restaurant called “La Siesta”.

As we had planned to go to the town to pick up some groceries, we decided to stop by and meet up with Matthias and Michaela. Matthias is of German decent and Michaela is of Slovakian decent.

As it was, we enjoyed some drink and very good conversation with them. They both speak English and Spanish very well. Matthias and Michaela definitely aim to please their customers …

… noted by the undivided attention we received.

They are a lovely couple who have worked very hard …

… to give their restaurant a very welcoming and warm feeling. They even have a wood burning stove to keep you warm on the damp nights.

La Siesta offers many different types of dishes …

… all cooked “fresh” by Matthias, a Professional Chef and, of course, his partner Michaela.

They serve everything from snacks to a daily changing menu offering everything from fresh meats to fresh fish dishes. Their fish is bought locally, so you can rest assured that it is really fresh.

Their dishes are reasonably priced as well.

If you enjoy Paella, they only ask that you let them know ahead of time, as Paella, cooked fresh, takes at least an hour to cook, and they want you to enjoy a really fresh home made Paella (not a frozen Paella that you may have had in other restaurants).

Matthias and Michaela welcomed us with open arms. They are a really friendly couple who will devote all of their energy into ensuring that you are well taken care of and that you will enjoy a superb meal at “La Siesta”.

We really enjoyed our short visit with Matthias and Michaela, and we were very happy to have made a visit. We foresee us enjoying many meals at this very nice restaurant in the future and, it is our pleasure to add La Siesta to our list of recommended restaurants in Mallorca.

Note! they are closed on a Thursday

Cala Millor is our favourite resort on the island. It is clean, beautiful, warm and friendly, and we believe it has something for everyone.

We have a special page for fiestas but I thought I should mention the San Antonio Abad festival that occurs in January. Colin and I often go for an evening stroll through Cala Millor up to Cala Bona and we are always surprised to see that the local bars and restaurants were having their own celebrations a week after the official fiesta. On every other street people were cooking their meats on these fires. In some areas were it was difficult to have a bonfire the bars had big barbecues outside of their facilities. Children were dressed up in their devils outfits and on the promenade were Cala Millor and Cala Bona meet there were local musicians playing and children dancing around the large fire.

On our way home we will stop off at a local bar in the main square and had a drink and they serve us with traditional black sausages and pork bellies that they were barbecuing on the large bonfire.
