The lovely town of Santanyí in south-eastern Mallorca is the perfect location for enjoying a holiday as a couple or with the family. Its beautiful white sandy beaches and spectacular coves with crystal clear waters offer the best holiday breaks for visitors to the area. Cala d’Or, with more than seventy years beside the Mediterranean, has a charm that pervades every one of its spaces, including its characteristic Ibiza-style architecture. Its fantastic hotels, with their attention to detail and emphasis on relaxation, provide a great holiday experience in the town. In Cala d’Or you’ll find the amazing natural harbour of Cala Llonga, one of the island’s biggest yachting marinas and the third busiest in the Balearic Islands. According to sailing enthusiasts, it’s one of the prettiest on the Mediterranean. Here, visitors can stroll and enjoy the many bars, restaurants and fashion boutiques. Cala d’Or preserves the spirit of traditional holidays, with magical spots and countryside walks creating a family atmosphere that makes you feel at home from day one.
An artist from the neighbouring island of Ibiza, Josep Costa, started it all. He first stepped on this unspoilt spot back in the 30s and dreamt of making it a meeting place for his friends who were painters, writers and sculptors. In that period, the land was of no value and nothing could be grown, so Josep Costa decided to buy those lands inhabited only by rocks, bushes, pines and turquoise water. This is where his idea to create a small summer holiday village like the ones in his homeland came from; with white houses, surrounded by pines, flat roofs and wooden beams and arches. Today, a favourite amoing travellers, Cala d’Or still gives off the personality and charm that are common in Ibiza, the white island.
With time, Cala d’Or has become a perfect place to relax. Full of plans, this tourist centre is proud to have one of the most complete offers of the island. Cuisine, culture, leisure, restaurants, hotels, beaches, guided tours… Cala d’Or is a small world designed for your enjoyment. Now the most important tourist centre in Santanyí, Cala d’Or has excellent transport connecting it with the rest of the island. The efforts made to keep their facilities and services up to date have been worth it and now Cala d’Or is a sure bet, since it combines tradition and modernity to perfection; the comfort we’re all looking for for our holidays.
