Cala d’Or is a popular resort area, on the southeast coast of Mallorca, in the Balearic Islands of Spain. The region is famous for its yacht marina, in Cala Llonga. There are several other calas, or coves, in the area, including Cala Esmeralda, Cala Ferrera, Cala Gran and Cala Serena. The area is beautifully scenic, with pine-fringed coves and charming sandy beaches, overlooking the clear and warm turquoise sea, as well as pretty white adobe-style buildings. To the north of Cala D’Or, the medieval Santueri Castle stands watch over S’Horta village, with views along the coast.
Cala d’Or is justifiably famous for its range of excellent restaurants, whether on the beachfront or in the marina, as well as several waterfront bars.
The Mondragó Natural Park, to the southwest of Cala d’Or, offers a haven for birdwatchers, with many species of birds, including ospreys and shags. There are also various boat trips on offer, as well as all the popular water sports, like snorkeling, scuba diving and windsurfing. Golf is also available, at Vall d’Or.
