Cala Millor is situated on the East coast of the island of Mallorca. It is shaped by tourism and this has been the case since 1934. It was during that year when the first hotel emerged here. The sand beach of Cala Millor is approx. 1800 metres long and 30 to 35 metres wide. The dunes which were once located behind the beach, were removed in favour of a well laid-out promenade. From a geographical standpoint, the place belongs to two municipalities which are separated by a road. The beach resort is not only popular amongst German holidaymakers. Many Germans also have a second residence in the area.
The journey by plane has to take place via the airport in Palma. The distance amounts to approx. 64 km. When arriving by shuttle bus, the journey time can vary markedly due to the fact that many other places are situated in between. For those who travel to Cala Millor by rental car, they need, depending on the volume of traffic, approx. 60-90 minutes for the journey.
The district of Cala Millor extends over two municipalities that are only separated from another by roads. As a result of the large expansion that tourism brings with it, the site is simply divided up. The northern part of Cala Millor belongs to the municipality Son Severa. This is the oldest district. The new building developments are all located in the municipality Sant Llorenç des Cardassar. Here you will still find a lot of agriculture and open spaces and thus the site extends further into this direction. At the same time, smaller sites are also being incorporated such as Son Moro which now belongs to Cala Millor.
If you have a holiday in Cala Millor, then you will plan a beach and sun holiday. The beaches of Cala Millor are certainly very special. The name Cala Millor translates into English as „the best bay“, which may speak for itself. The beach surfaces of Cala Millor are divided up into four areas. The beach section in the North and which occupies approx. 400 metres, is called Arenal de Son Servera. The bay of Cala Millor is located there and here is where the first settlements can be found and the first hotels are now located in their stead. Further South is the connecting 1200 metre long beach surface of Platja de Sant Llorenç. The most Southern part of the beach is the Cala Nau. The beach is approx. 200 metres long and there is a rocky coast at the end of it.
The loveliest building in Cala Millor is the parish church. It is situated in the municipality of Son Servera. The Parròquia de Nostra Senyora dels Àngels, translates as the parish church of our mother of the angels and whose flat building will win you over.
Regarding cultural activities, there are not many opportunities for you in Cala Millor. If you wantto visit museums, theatres or exhibitions, you need to travel to Palma.

During the summer months, renting boats and other attractions are always an option. You can also go for a hike. Cala Millor offers you very good opportunities for this. You can hike to the Punta de n'Amer. This is a 2 km long and 200 hector large peninsula at Cala Millor. If you are on the most Southern part of the beach, you willalready see the signposting for it. The route will lead you over sand that is easy to walk on and gravel paths and then directly through the woods. If you walk at a good speed, you need 90 to 120 minutes to master the 60 metre difference in height. The route is also very easy for children to tackle.
A market day takes place once a week. The goods offered here are rather aimed at tourists than to the needs of the local inhabitants.
