This beach is easily reachable by boat or foot and offers many water activities to adults and children. Cala Varques is in fact one of the most unspoilt beaches in Spain.

On the north-east of Majorca Island lies Puerto Pollensa, known as one of the most picturesque beaches.

As this beach enjoys calm and clear waters, it is perfect for those who wish to learn how to snorkel. With stunning scenery, this is the place to visit with your family.
Cala Agulla is close to many major hotels and one of the most popular beaches for diving. The crystal clear waters offer divers diverse opportunities for exploring Aqua life. This beach is surrounded by tall pine trees and local mountains, but it can get overcrowded during the summer months.
Arenal Playa de Palma
Arenal Playa de Palma is a white sandy beach with shallow waters. It’s a wonderful resort for underwater exploring and is known for offering all-year-round diving opportunities. Taking a plunge into the deep blue waters is even more fun than before thanks to the brand new diving platform in place.
This pretty but small beach is on the edge of Mondrago Park in Majorca. It is only 25 metres deep with golden sands and amazing scenery. Although the beach itself is small, it can still get overcrowded in peak season. Every year, thousands of snorkellers come to Cala Barca for a spot of underwater exploration. If you are an experienced diver, this is the beach for you, but as there is no lifeguard service, you should exercise caution. Unlike some of the other bays in the area, Cala Barca is developed for tourists and offers a scuba diving centre.
