Today we will start with one of our favourite resorts; Cala San Vicente, in the far north of Mallorca, 62,7 km from Palma de Mallorca airport. Mallorca airport transfers to Cala San Vicente will take approximately 50 minutes.
Cala San Vicente is tiny holiday resort etched into the craggy northern coast of Mallorca. In fact it is the northernmost resort on the island, and it's made up of 4 coves; Cala Barques, Cala Clara, Cala Molins and Cala Carbó and a sprinkling of holiday homes, a few hotels and a couple of cafes and restaurants. Very low key with next to no nightlife, Cala San Vicente is a place to go if you are looking for natural beauty and relaxation.
The nearest towns to Cala San Vicente are Puerto Pollensa (or Port de Pollença) on the Bay of Pollensa and Pollensa Old Town, just inland, both 6 km away. Cyclists do cycle here though it isn't strictly on any of the more popular cycling routes in the area.
Alternatively, book our highly accomplished transfer drivers to take you to Cala San Vicente by direct airport transfer service from your hotel or villa and make this a real day out on the beach in Mallorca.
Cala San Vicente is one of the loveliest parts of the north of the island and easy to reach by car, however it can get pretty busy in the summer peak season and consequently, it can be tricky to find parking, especially at weekends when locals go to the beach too.
Opting for airport transfers to Cala San Vicente is once again a good idea for parking reasons alone.
Bar Mallorca, just above the beach at Cala Molins is great for breakfasts, varied menu, pa-amb-oli, fish & meat dishes and drinks at any time. Busy with the cycling crowd in spring and autumn and busy generally throughout the season, it is popular with locals and tourists, extremely friendly and enjoys wonderful views over the beach.
Cal Patró has been around for decades and has hardly changed at all. Considered the best place to go for fish, seafood and paella, it is highly acclaimed and yet completely low key. Located on the steps leading down to the first beach, Cala Barques, it is small and antiquated with a outdoor terrace and checkered table cloths.
Bar Poli is a family run pizzeria and cafe on a side street, leading away from the resort, one road up from Cala Molins. This is the local hangout, open throughout the year. They serve excellent pizzas. Closed on Sundays.
Sandy beaches are not everyone’s cup of tea, but when you hire a parasol and sun lounger for the day in Cala San Vicente, you can enjoy the magnificent setting without the discomforts of sandy towels and scorching sunlight and you can get your drinks served here from the beach bar!
This is posible on both the two larger beaches; Cala Barques and Cala Molins, and on the rock platform at Cala Molins, but not in the small coves of Cala Clara and Cala Carbó. Simply pick the Parasol you like and the person in charge will soon come and ask you to pay. Prices are around 20 € for the day.
The Cala San Vicente life guard service provides protection and support on the two larger beaches throughout the day, between 10.30 am and 6.30 pm in the peak summer and from 11 am until 5 pm in the spring and autumn there is a lifeguard on watch and often secveral others pitched under a tent with emergency medical supplies.
They will help with all kinds of eventualities while being an extra set of eyes on kids playing near the shore and general help if necessary.
Cala San Vicente is built into the rocky mountainside and as such, we would recomment it is not especialy suitable for disabled people and wheelchair users. The two larger beaches do have access ramps down to the beach, and there are boardwalks to the sea o both main beaches, but the ramps are relatively steep. The two smaller coves are pebbled and as such totally unsuitable for wheelchair access.
This is a blue flag beach and it shows. There are toilets, showers and water stations, several cafés and restaurants, an ATM machine and a few small souvenir shops and supermarkets.
