Transfer time: Approx 60 minutes
Calas de Mallorca is a modern, purpose-built resort and therefore lacks a bit of character.
The town is perched high on a clifftop, making the larger hotels which dominate the centre seem even more imposing.
However, you could go a lot further and fare a lot worse, especially if you like peace and quiet.
Although the main beach is quite a hike for most visitors, it's worth it - the sand is fine, and the sea is crystal clear.
It is a tiny cove though, so at peak times you will struggle to find room for a pocket hankerchief, never mind a towel !
Limited entertainment so most of the action is centred around the small coves that make up Calas de Mallorca.
There's a footpath along the clifftops which offers some dramatic views. The choice of shops isn't extensive, although you will find everything you need.
A tropical bird sanctuary and small zoo are close by.
Once the sun goes down people tend to head for the commercial centres which offer a fair choice of restaurants, etc - some provide 'live' music.
There's dancing at one or two clubs.
Bucket and Spade Brigade:
If your kids don't mind the walk they'll love the beach. The clean sand, shallow water plus some nearby caves to explore make it a mecca.
To combat boredom in the evenings the resort offers a funfair and a few amusement arcades.
Someone also thoughtfully built a playground close to some of the quieter bars where parents can keep a watchful eye.
