Beach of Cala Millor
The beach of Cala Millor is one of eight in total within the municipality. The beach is situated on the east coast of the island within the large resort of Cala Millor (same name) next to Son Servera and Sant Llorenç. It translate into "the better bay" and is one of the largest and longest beaches within the east. The beach itself is roughly 2.2 km in length, hence there are a lot of places to choose from depending on whether you are staying at one of the many hotels along the beach or visiting. If you take the entire coast line of Cala Millor then we talk about roughly 3km of coastline with a beautiful promenade to stroll on that sits inbetween Cala Bona and Sa Coma.
Cala Millor is well-developed and has a great beach infrastructure, hence it has become a popular destination for families and couples with children, as well as the elderly. The beach has beautiful soft white sand along with parts that contain small rocky formations. The water here is fairly clean and clear. There are numerous spots that allow you to talk into the water for several meters before it even begins getting deeper, while other spots are a bit deeper from the get-go. The wide-open bay does mean that there are windy days that can cause sizeable waves (and also undercurrents on those days) which, depending on the age of your children, may or may not be suitable (always follow the flag advice). Overall though a great beach for families as a majority of places have shallow water, along with fine sand, making it a great combination for kids to play.
There are numerous water sports activities that can be done in Cala Millor from jet skis to banana boats and parasailing.
The beach has excellent facilities all across, that include sun lounges, sunshades, showers, and toilets, depending on which part of the beach you are at. The more centered to Cala Millor you are, the more facilities are available. The beach has a promenade from end to end (stretching from the national park of Punta de n'Amer to Cala Bona) with seafront cafés and restaurants, bars, and tourist shops. Certain areas of the beach contain special rampants for disabled, and the water within the bay is typically warm.
