|Calas de Mallorca is a modern purpose built resort on the east coast of the island, approximately 70km or 44 miles, away from Palma and the Son Sant Joan International airport. Although the resort is part of the municipal district of Manacor, the nearest inland town is actually Felanitx. Recognising that a boundary between the two municipal districts has to be drawn somewhere, someone in authority has decided that the interests of Calas de Mallorca would be best served by Manacor.|
Overall the resort is quiet and generally relaxed, and is perhaps most suited to those visitors looking for a base from which to explore the east coast more, For beach lovers, Calas de Mallorca has three small sandy coves called Cala Antena, Cala Domingos Gran and Cala Domingos Petit, all of which offer the usual selection of pedalos and water sports to choose from. However, one thing certainly to be aware of is that the sea does have strong undercurrents, and may not be suitable for either weak swimmers or children. The largest of the three beaches is Cala Domingos, which does carry the European Blue flag for cleanliness, but at a little less than 100m wide it can become very crowded during summer weekends. Throughout the day, and well into the evenings during the summer months, the Calas Express road train runs between the beaches, or alternatively if you are feeling especially energetic, or brave, you can always take the coastal path which is cut into the cliffs.
The resort has a reasonable selection of bars and shops concentrated at the Centro Commercial, which should suffice for the everyday essentials of holiday life, but in all fairness to the resort, if you do move away from the hotel and apartment complexes there are few other family attractions or activities in the town. So, if you are looking for all day activities, its best to ensure that these are available at your hotel before booking. Evening entertainment here is also mainly hotel based, although the resort does have a small, but ever growing number, of live music bars.
