  4. Best remote beaches in Mallorca

Turquoise waters and white-sanded beaches are what make Mallorca a natural Balearic paradise. Being the biggest island of the archipelago, Mallorca is a fascinating territory rich in pristine nature and picturesque towns.

The uneven shoreline creates several inlets and harbors that are difficult to access by foot, but ideal for those with personal watercraft. This is why the island is a true haven for enthusiasts of sailing!

If you're looking for a more secluded beach experience, Mallorca has plenty of hidden coves that are worth exploring. No matter which hidden cove you choose to explore, Mallorca's natural beauty and pristine beaches are sure to leave you feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. So pack your sunscreen, grab your sailboat, and get ready to discover the island's best-kept secrets!

1. Caló de la Bella Dona

Location: West coast, Sol de Mallorca

We start this list with a beautiful cove of turquoise waters located on the island's western side, in the municipality of Sol de Mallorca. Among many names, locals call it Platja de sa Bella Dona, and Calo de sa Dona Morta, but it's hard to figure out the reasons behind these titles.

Calo de la Bella Dona is a u-shape cove with a white-sanded seabed that offers great conditions for anchoring. Locals mostly frequent it and it's easier to reach by sea rather than the land. The rocks and the crystal-clear waters are the perfect locations for a day of snorkeling or for practicing other exploring activities.

2. Caló des Moro 

Location: Southeast coast, Santanyì

Considered one of the best beaches in Mallorca, Caló des Moro is a stunning little bay surrounded by dramatic cliffs that drop into the sea and create a unique atmosphere. We are in the southeast part of Mallorca, not far from the city of Santanyì.

The beach of fine white sand adds that touch of tropical paradise you can only find on postcards! You can't but be mesmerized by the turquoise waters and take a dip, so bring your goggles to enjoy a fun day.

This remote cove is still not very popular among tourists and it's perfect to visit by boat to have a unique perspective on the landscape. Put it on your list and keep the secret!

3. Cala d’Egos

Location: South-west coast, Port d'Andraxt

We sail again to the western side of Mallorca, not far from the town of Port d'Andraxt, to reach another stunning location only known by locals and a few expert tourists: we're talking about Cala d'Egos, an enchanting bay hidden in the coast that is part of the Mondragó Natural Park, a protected area rich in pristine nature and local fauna. We suggest taking some time to visit the park and walk through the marked walking paths to enjoy the beauties of this area to the fullest!

The beach is surrounded by limestone rocks that drop into the sea and form natural coves such as Cala d'Egos, which is never crowded as it is difficult to access by the land. On the other hand, a private yacht is the best way to reach it and enjoy the turquoise waters! The sand seabed offers great anchoring conditions.

4. Sa Calobra

Location: North coast, Sierra de Tramontana

This is definitely one of the most scenic coves one can visit in Mallorca. Sa Calobra is the name of the small town where this beach is located: we're in the municipality of Escorca, in the Sierra de Tramontana, and once you get to the beach, you can't but be mesmerized by the natural landscape of mountains and sea dramatically merging together. The cove is in fact surrounded by 200-meter-high hills covered in forests, giving you the feeling of being a tiny individual in a land of giants.

The turquoise and blue waters are perfect for relaxation on board your private yacht. Right behind the beach, you can find the mouth of Torrent de Pareis, a river that runs for around 3 kilometers through the mountains and reaches the sea right on this beach.

5. Platja des Coll Baix

Location: north-east coast, Alcudia

Another hidden gem that is only accessible by foot after a long and challenging walk or, even better, by boat! This secluded beach is surrounded by cliffs and crystal-clear waters that are perfect for swimming and snorkeling, while the lack of crowds and noise makes it a peaceful retreat for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city.

This virgin beach is located in the municipality of Alcudia, and it is around 8km from the historic city (don't forget to pay a visit!). Just like the previous one mentioned in this list, it has no services, so having a yacht at your disposal it's a great way of exploring these pristine bays without giving up the comforts.

6. Caló des Marmols 

Location: South-east coast, Santanyì

Last but not least, a remote but beautiful bay hidden on the southernmost coast of Mallorca, far from the crowded towns and the masses of tourists. Caló des Marmols can be reached on foot after a challenging 5km hike through the valleys, and for this reason, is not particularly popular among tourists. One more perfect bay to discover by boat!

The beach, as well as the cliffs, are white-washed, hence the name "cove of marbles", while the sandy seabed is great for anchoring. You can't help but jump in the turquoise waters as soon as you visit this bay!
