Cala Millor - The Place
Cala Millor is one of Majorca’s main resorts on the east coast. The east of the island has many craggy coves and small beaches but at Cala Millor the beach is long and wide, curving around the bay. The bay itself is protected by rocky headlands which give shelter to the beach. There is a wide range of water sporting opportunities including a windsurfing school. Glass bottomed boats make daily trips along the picturesque east coast. A pedestrianised promenade runs along the length of the beach and is very popular with cyclists. Bicycles are plentiful and cheap to hire. The palm lined promenade has many shops although many sell very similar goods. Those who like horse riding will find Rancho Willy’s stables at nearby Cala Bono. It is best to book the horses in advance to avoid disappointment as demand can outstrip supply.. Fantasy Park in Cala Millor is an outdoor play area with rides and inflatables and is very popular with children. Another popular excursion is a visit to the Auto Safari Zoo which has African safari animals. Beware of the monkeys if you take your hire car there as they can be quite destructive. Better to take the zoo’s mini train around the four kilometre trail. Cala Millor also has a go-karting track much enjoyed by both older children and adults. Pula golf course, near to Cala Millor, is an eighteen hole, par 71 course set in beautiful surroundings. There is also a nine hole course in nearby Son Servera. While holidaying on the east coast a visit to the Drach’s Caves should not be missed. The many caverns have a fantastic array of stalactites and stalagmites all dramatically illuminated. Concerts are often held in the largest cavern, which holds the Martel Lake, where the acoustics are excellent and the lighting effects are spectacular.
Cala Millor Nightlife
There are many lively bars and clubs in Cala Millor most of which are in the middle of the resort above the central beach area. The largest disco is Palace Q which opens at ten in the evening and closes at six. To the north and south of the centre evening entertainment is mainly hotel based. British bars often provide entertainment such as quizzes, race nights and karaoke.
Cala Millor has the usual supply of gift and souvenir shops found in resorts around the island giving plenty of opportunities for purchasing holiday mementos. Cala Millor does not have its own market. The nearest market is in Son Servera on Fridays but it is worth travelling twenty kilometres inland to Manacor on Mondays, to sample the market there. Away from the tourist seaside resorts you will experience the traditional daily lives of Majorcans. The town, with its old churches, watch towers and windmills, is also the centre of the pearl industry on the island. A string of those would make a good holiday memento!
Cala Millor Eating
Cala Millor has a wide choice of restaurants providing food to accommodate most tastes and pockets. There are even fast food outlets along the sea front. Fish fresh from the morning’s catch is rarely disappointing and there are many excellent fish restaurants in Cala Millor. Local wines are pleasant and inexpensive.
