Buy fresh from the market
A real advantage Calas de Mallorca has over almost every other resort in Majorca is that it has arguably the best market on the island, just next door. That's right, the nearby town of Felanitx has an impressive Sunday morning trading rush and offers an exciting opportunity to stock up on local produce.
If you're staying in a villa or apartment complex in Calas de Mallorca, then make a beeline for the market to stock up on produce for meals in and picnics out. Even if you're lucky enough to be enjoying an All Inclusive holiday to Majorca, this market is still worth a visit. Firstly, it's a beautiful spectacle, with all the sights, sounds and smells of the market. Secondly, it'll fill your suitcases with those all-important souvenirs.
Coves, coasts and cliffs
If all the excitement of your package holiday to Majorca is getting a bit much for you and you're just looking to get out into the wilderness, simply hop on a bike. Walk down to one of the cycle hire companies and you can grab yourself a set of wheels and pedal off into the distance with your trusty steed.
Or skip that bike entirely and just hot-step it along one of the scenic coastal paths. The landscape will take your breath away, with the sea on one side and the deep green undergrowth on the other – standing on the cliff face, silhouetted against the horizon. Special moments like these are especially perfect for those last minute holidays to Majorca, when you may not have time to book special expeditions. Bringing a picnic to watch the sunset, you can then get one of the regular buses back home for a nightcap, before it all starts again in the morning.
The resort caters well to young families, as the resort has a fun fair, crazy golf, play parks and bikes for hire. The beaches are clean, making them perfect for sandcastle-building, and the shores are shallow - perfect for splashing around. Little legs can also benefit from the road train that travels between the different beaches, so all three beaches are potential paddling spots.
Come home to Calas de Mallorca
For first-time visitors or seasoned returners, Calas de Mallorca is one of the best options if you're looking to cast your net wider than the hotel and beach. The transport options are broad and economical and include a number of bus routes, bike hire centres, car hire companies and taxi firms. The public transport systems are well managed, regulated and safe, so if you haven't got other means of getting around the island, then have no fear.
If you've hired a car or are in the mood to take a cab, you'll be pleasantly surprised by how easy it is to get around Majorca. Even at the weekends, other than in the busy towns, the roads are generally clear. This makes all the difference if you've only got a few days to see the sights.
