Cala Vinas

Cala Vinas Holidays

The calm resort of Cala Vinas feels quite secluded with its cosy beach and small collection of bars and restaurants. However, it has the benefit of being close to party central Magaluf for fun night out and Majorca's capital, Palma, to make cultural visits and shopping trips. Cala Vinas boasts many quality hotels, ideal for All Inclusive holidays to Majorca.

Sheltered bay

For you own patch of secluded sands, the 100 metre beach at Cala Vinas gives a sense of privacy as it's set down some steps in a deep cove. The white sand is speckled with palm trees and straw parasols to provide some shade – needed in the warm micro-climate formed by the surrounding cliffs. The waters are shallow and safe for swimming but you won't find too many activities here.

If you crave water sports, beachside bars or party cruises, hop on a bus which will get you to Magaluf in 15 minutes. Here there's a wide swathe of beach with a lively atmosphere both waterside and in town. Calas de Mallorca is great for last minute holidays to Majorca, with enough proximity to key destinations.

There are dozens of other patches of sand to relax on around the southwest coast of Majorca. If you hire a car or boat then you can take in unspoilt coves like Cala Falco, which is a popular place to scuba dive and snorkel. Or there's Portals Vells, a group of three small beaches that between them have a couple of excellent beach restaurants.

Relax in the village

Cala Vinas has a handful of shops and a small supermarket to keep you stocked up. The hotels that perch on either edge of the bay, such as the Sentido and Barcelo, have the benefit of sea view pools and rooms that look out onto the Mediterranean. The All Inclusive hotels in Majorca offer high quality cuisine, with food of most nations available.

The small selection of restaurants here mainly serve up Spanish food and also act as bars where you can relax the night away. Restaurant and bar Caracas is a popular spot as it serves delicious Majorcan food, such as paella, as well as steaks and also has live music some evenings. Or you could just sit in the bar area with sports on the TV.

The village has a more unusual venue for atmospheric nights though. Right beside the Sentido hotel is a Cave set in to the cliff that hosts live classical Spanish guitar acts and flamenco dancers - definitely something to pop on Facebook.

Fun-time towns

Just up the road is Magaluf, which is famed for its wild night life. If you want to take the whole family out for a fun evening, the famous Pirates Adventure Dinner Show is here, featuring a spectacular acrobatics show to entertain you while you eat. Package holidays to Majorca are in high supply, with Magaluf always being the number one destination.

Magaluf also has loads going on during the day. Western-themed water park Western Park is on the edge of the town and has adrenaline-pumping slides as well as 'Kidzworld'. Nearby is Katmandu Park, which is full of fairground games as well as a mini golf course and a 4D cinema.

A little further up the coast is family-friendly Palma Nova, which has three beaches to choose from as well as Golf Fantasia mini golf. Close to here is Marineland, one of Spain's largest animal parks, which mixes dolphin and bird shows with big aquarium tanks and a tropical house.

If it's culture you crave, Palma is about an hour away from Cala Vinas and a beautiful place to wander round and take in the Gothic cathedral and hilltop castle. It has a huge aquarium too so you'll have something to do whatever the weather.

From Palma it's easy to get to other parts of Majorca by bus and you can catch a wooden train built in 1912 to the lovely northern seaside resort of Puerto de Soller.

Enjoy the scenery

Set among pine tree-clad cliffs, the landscape around Cala Vinas is picturesque. Make the most of it by visiting La Reserva del Puig de Galatzo, a wonderful natural park where you can see vegetation and wildlife native to Majorca. There is also a waterfall splash pool that is begging to be jumped into.

You'll see the rugged beauty of the coastline by taking a catamaran excursion around the Bay of Palma. Trips are readily available from Cala Vinas and usually last half a day with a stop for lunch - so if you have booked a late deal to Majorca, you will still be able to find activities when you arrive.

There are two good golf courses at hand here. The closest is T Golf & Country Club Poniente, which is just inland from Cala Vinas. One of the oldest and most respected courses in Majorca, you'll be surrounded by majestic pines and seven lakes as you perfect your swing on this 18-hole course.
