Destinations / Spain / Majorca / Cala D'or
Cala D'or Subjects to - Located on the south east coast, a rather sophisticated and chic little resort has burgeoned from a traditional old fishing village to become of the premier resorts of Majorca. Smart and sassy, Cala D'Or does not have any of the brasher elements of the more commercialised resorts on the island and the town has international appeal. Majorca holidays are cosmopolitan and the upmarket feel of Cala D'Or reflects that.
For holidays in Majorca, Cala D'Or attracts a wide audience as the resort is ideal for couples and families alike and the pretty pedestrianised streets and gorgeous pavement cafes will charm even the most jaded traveller. A delightful mini train runs between various parts of the town and the beaches, so everything is easy to reach.
Cala D'Or hotels are good standard and accommodation ranges from upmarket hotels to family owned pensions to self catering properties. The infrastructure in the resort is good and some romantic Moorish style architecture adds to the overall character of the town.
Several sandy coves are dotted around the area with Cala Gran, Cala D'Or, Cala Egos and Cala Esmeralda as the major and most popular beaches. For evening, a wonderful selection of restaurants, cafes, shops and bars just simmer with activity and the lovely marina of Cala D'Or is perfect for a pleasant "rambla" - this is what lovely Majorca holidays are all about. Another lovely resort to visit is Puerto Pollensa as the town is picturesque and the marina area is jammed with lavish yachts and pleasure craft. Not a million miles away either is pretty Porto Colom with its delicious fish restaurants.
There are no flights to Cala D'Or, but frequent direct flights to Palma from Dublin ensure the lovely resort is easily accessible.
