CALA D'OR AND VICINITY FEATURED
HOTELS, MALLORCA (MAJORCA), BALEARIC ISLANDS, SPAIN
|Cala d'Or is a holiday resort on
the east coast of Mallorca in the Balearic Islands of Spain. Cala
d'Or consists of three principal areas: the town centre,, Cala Egos and
Cala Ferrera. The area offers many small, fine sandy beaches including
Cala Gran, Cala d'Or, Cala Egos, Cala Es Forti, Cala Serena and Cala Esmeralda.
A mini 'road train' regularly runs for holidaymakers between different
parts of the resort and the beaches.
The town centre is very lively in
the summer months but much more low key than the larger and more populated
resorts in Mallorca. The pedestrianised area offers a variety of shops,
bars, and restaurants and a wide selection of international cuisine. Also
popular is the marina area (pictured above and right) which welcomes exclusive
yachts and chartered boats throughout the year, which is also near restaurants
