Getting to, from and around Cala Millor
You'll need to fly into Palma airport, and the good news is there's loads of direct flights from across the UK, including Manchester, Birmingham and Glasgow with airlines like easyJet, British Airways and Wizzair. Cala Millor is located on the far east coast of the island, about 70km away from Palma Airport, and there are various ways you can get around.
The journey from Palma airport to Cala Millor takes about an hour in the car or around 75-90 minutes using an airport transfer. This could be the best option for you if you're enjoying a 'fly and flop' holiday, heading straight to your hotel and taking advantage of the entertainment, restaurants and facilities on offer, or spending time in the town or on Cala Millor Beach. Package holidays to Cala Millor with certain tour operators like TUI and Jet2holidays will usually include the airport transfer too.
There are direct bus services from Palma city centre to Cala Millor, however, they aren't too frequent and can take around 1 hour 40 mins, or sometimes require two buses. If you've got plenty of time and are saving money, this is possible, however, you might be better exploring in other ways.
Being on the east of the island there are some great spots to explore like hidden beaches and stunning scenery. If you fancy a day out, it's definitely worth hiring a car and taking a little drive to find some of these hidden gems. You can pick up a hire car from the airport when you arrive or your hotel staff or holiday rep can help you book something more local if you only need it for a day or two.
Things to do in Cala Millor
Cala Millor Beach
Cala Millor is situated on the beach and is perfect if you want to combine days by the pool with some time on the soft white sand. The beach and sea here are beautiful with a number of beachside restaurants dotted along the promenade, as well as water sports like jet skiing and snorkelling. Cala Millor Beach is actually a Blue Flag beach so you know that you'll be enjoying a great day out in the sun.
If you're someone who enjoys a bit of outdoor exercise, head to Via Verda (The Green Way), which is a walking and cycling track and runs between Manacor and Arta. This old railway line track is a lovely way to see the local countryside and towns of Son Servera and Son Carrio. Closer to home the hike up to Castell de la Punta de n'Amer, allows you to get out and try a coastal trek.
Boat Trips & Excursions
Being in the Med, you'll definitely want to take a boat trip out. There are plenty of options that can be booked online in advance or in Cala Millor, either at your hotel with a rep, or at one of the shops that sells excursion tickets. Try a glass bottom boat trip to enjoy the views under the water without getting wet, and who knows, you may even see a dolphin or two.
Nightlife in Cala Millor is varied with a good mix of bars to choose from for a fun night out. Several places to check out are Havana Q for a bit of Latin music, or Danni's Bar which is the best rated on TripAdvisor. There are plenty of English bars in the area and a popular Irish bar to visit is Pogue Mahone in nearby Sa Coma.
Cala Millor Market
Every Monday from April to October, there is a local market in the morning (between 9am and 1pm), on Carrer de l'Eucaliptus (opposite Aldi), offering you the opportunity to buy all sorts of bits and pieces from fruit and vegetables to clothing and souvenirs.
Did you know there is also a go karting track here? On the outskirts of town is Karting Cala Millor a fun way to spend a few hours, with two seat karts so that children can also enjoy the experience.

Hotels in Cala Millor
For an easy holiday, book an all-inclusive hotel with the likes of TUI or Iberostar, or alternatively take a look at some of the private villas and apartments on offer if you fancy a self-catering holiday instead. It's worth booking a flight inclusive package where possible as you'll often save money, however, if you do choose to book separately, take a look at Airbnb for holiday apartments and villas, or Booking.com which has both hotels and private accommodation for rent.
Holiday Village Majorca
The ever popular, all inclusive Holiday Village Majorca is a firm family favourite.

Hipotels Hipocampo Palace
Another popular resort here is the Hipotels Hipocampo Palace, a 5-star resort next to the beach, with great reviews on TripAdvisor. This luxury resort sits in a central location and is perfect if you like a premium feel holiday that's just a short stroll from the beach.
