Cala Mondrago Introduction

Cala Mondrago lies sixty five kilometres from Palma on the south coast of Majorca. It is a quiet resort situated around a secluded bay in an area of outstanding beauty. The small development is unlikely to expand because in 1992 it became a National Park and is therefore protected from the over development found in so many resorts. It is the perfect holiday destination for those wishing for complete relaxation as there is little other than a beautiful sandy beach surrounded by woods.

Why Go To Cala Mondrago

Cala Mondrago is a small resort offering accommodation in pretty surroundings and good sandy beaches sheltered by a craggy headland. It is a resort that has not been marketed for the masses so it really is a place to ‘get away from it all’. If you enjoy peace and tranquillity, a Cala Mondrago holiday is the one for you.

Cala Mondrago appeals to those searching for a relaxing holiday in the sun. It is popular with families with small children who want to spend their days on the beach and in the sea. Those who enjoy walking will find many paths and trails in the National Park and coastal tracks to neighbouring resorts.

When To Go To Cala Mondrago

The holiday season in Cala Mondrago begins in April and ends in late October. Temperatures range from twenty to mid thirty degrees centigrade.

Cala Mondrago - The Place

Cala Mondrago on the beautiful south coast of Majorca is noted for its soft sandy beaches and its sheltered coves. Lying in a designated National Park, it has remained small and secluded and is popular with those seeking a relaxed hideaway. The wooded hills surround the coves which are protected on both sides by a rocky headland. The tree lined beach is wide and composed of fine sand. The crystal clear water which laps the shore extends a warm invitation to sun bathers. The northern cove is the busier of the two and is more sheltered. Here you can hire paddle boats.

There are limited facilities in the resort for shopping but the nearby village of Santanyi has shops and markets catering for your needs.

Although there are bars and restaurants in Cala Mondrago the choice is limited and for greater variety a trip to Santanyi or to neighbouring resorts is necessary.

Owing to its seclusion and limited facilities holidaymakers may find that car hire would be an advantage. This would enable you to explore the local area as well as further afield. The chic resort of Cala d’Or is a few kilometres to the north and well worth a visit.

Cala Mondrago Nightlife

The atmosphere in Cala Mondrago does not alter as the light fades. It is as relaxing in the evening as it is by day. There are a small number of bars and restaurants but Cala Mondrago is a resort that sleeps at night. Those looking for a little more action could take a taxi to Porto Petro where there is a little more on offer.

Cala Mondrago Shopping

The price you pay for the seclusion and the tranquillity of Cala Mondrago is the resort’s limited number of facilities. There is a shop which has a restrictive selection of essential goods as well as gifts and souvenirs but, if you require more than that, you will need to travel inland to Santanyi or up the coast to Cala D’or. There are local bus services during the day but car hire would be an advantage. On Sunday morning there is an excellent market in Felanitx which claims to be the best in Majorca. There are also markets on Wednesday and Saturday in Santanyi.

Cala Mondrago Eating

Much of Cala Mondrago dining is hotel based. There are limited opportunities to eat in the village but a short taxi ride will take you inland where the choice is greater. Tapas are an ideal way to sample local food as the portions are small and varied. They fill the gap between lunch and dinner which can be rather lengthy.
