Situated on the east coast of Mallorca, Cala Millor is a dream vacation spot for anyone who loves the beach, sun, and water. After all, how could you go wrong when Cala Millor translates to "better bay"?
There's no feeling like white sand under your feet. Add in some turquoise seas and a sunset and feel all your worries wash away with the outgoing waves. The beach at Cala Millor is known for being in pristine condition--year round!
The Cuevas del Drach, literally the "Dragon Caves" are a series of four caves that visitors may explore. Fun for all ages, visits to the caves end with a serenade from a four piece band in a boat.
The Palma Cathedral is a hauntingly beautiful place to visit in Cala Millor. The cathedral, built in Catalan Gothic style, took nearly four centuries to complete.
No trip to Cala Millor would be complete without an excursion to Cap de Formentor, located at the most northern part of Mallorca. From the top you get spectacular 360 degree views.
Architects will appreciate the Bellver Castle as an opportunity to see one of Europes' only circular castles. After several centuries of being under royal and subsequently military rule, the Bellver castle now houses a History Museum.
Considered to be one of the most important pilgrimage sites in Mallorca, Santuari de Lluc is a monastery and sanctuary founded in the 13th century. Many walking tours use the sanctuary as a starting point.
From the airport you may take a coach directly to Cala Millor. Alternatively, it is possible to rent a car to cover the 70 kilometer trip. Once you're in Cala Millor, your best bet is renting a car, taking a taxi, or opting for the local buses.
Cala Millor has classic Mediterranean weather and is warm year round. The peak tourist season is June to August, as the weather is the warmest. Still, if you're looking to escape the winter chill of northern Europe, Cala Millor could serve you well even November through May.
Cala Millor is a resort on the island of Mallorca. Thus, the best place to stay is really in the resort, ideally by the beach front so you don't have far to go when you start your day. The attractions all around the island are best accessed by some means of transportation so if you are most interested in the sun and surf, the "Better bay" of Cala Millor is perfect.

It was a great activity, definitely a highlight from our Mallorca trip! The guides were amazing, paid a lot of attention to us, gave us plenty of insights and information about the caves. However, if you want to enjoy it fully, be prepared for some good workout and note what the intro email says - wear proper shoes (sneakers are enough), take 1.5 liters of water, use sunscreen. If I had to point out something to consider for the organisers: I felt our group was slighly too big (12 participants and 2 guides), and maybe it would be cool if one of the guides took some pics of us during the trip. Since the organisers advised against taking any valuables, we do not have a single photo from the trip, which is a pity. Also, for those who had pick-up from the hotel, a quick organised break before the tour to use the bathroom and eat something would be good too. Otherwise it was great. Thanks to the organisers for such great memories!
This was the most amazing experience of our entire vacation. The company was extremely professional to deal with- organized and on top of everything. The staff were incredibly skilled, funny and made the trip an experience we won’t forget. The views were just magnificent and the sensation was incredible. I am not fond of heights, flying etc- but never had any issues throughout our trip. Sensational experience and we can’t thank them enough for the opportunity!
Patrick was amazing!! He was full of energy and very enthusiastic. He is dull of spirit and keeps you entertained at early in the morning whilst picking you up from your hotel. He is also very informative and knows his job very well. One of my collegues doesn’t know how to swim and he assisted him with every step/swim of the journey. He was very patient with us. I recommend this activity if you are into adventures and book it with Patrick!!
We had a incredible time. Our trip was a little..... unpredictable and our time up in the air was dictated by the changing winds, but the experience and views were well worth the time and money. Perfect day and beautiful photos we love.
Alfonso, Joaquín and Patrick made this experience outstanding. Not only because of their knowledge about stalagmites/stalactites/columns but also for keeping us enjoyed and safe. Great caves to explore and dive in!
