The east coast’s largest resort, Cala Millor is a popular vacation and second-home destination on Mallorca. It is no surprise that this magnificent holiday location attracts many visitors and property buyers. The beach here is considered by many to be one of the island’s best, with turquoise water and fine sand. Moreover, apart from modern infrastructure, it offers a diverse range of services: from clubs and sports centres to upscale restaurants.
Many properties in Cala Millor, including apartments and villas, are just a few steps away from the sea and enjoy panoramic views overlooking the coastline.

The area has a significant percentage of permanent residents. It is mostly preferred by British and German citizens, who have settled down here or own a second home property in this location, attracted by the excellent facilities available to please all tastes.
Although Cala Millor has a quite wide appeal, a broad variety of quality properties, services, attractions, landscapes, and tranquil and safe environment of the area makes it ideal for families with small children and more mature individuals.
The area is shared between the municipalities of Son Servera and Sant Llorenç des Cardassar. Conveniently, Cala Millor is located just 3km away from the central town of Son Servera. The island’s second largest town of Manacor also can easily be reached by car. The capital of Palma de Mallorca is within an hour’s drive.
The area’s central attraction is its extensive beach (Blue Flag awarded) with amazing crystal clear sea and gently sloping sands. Its shallow water makes it ideal for children to play in. Of course, during the busy holiday season, the beach gets very crowded but there is still a lot of fun to be had by families.

A pleasant palm tree lined promenade borders the beach, which is the largest car-free stretch in Mallorca apart from Palma. It is a perfect spot for walking and cycling, enjoying the sea air and marvellous views.

Also, this is a spot to take refreshments in one of the many cafés or bars, and having a dinner in a superb restaurant.
For shopping lovers, there are many clothing shops, jewellers, and boutiques, featuring renowned international brands.
The promenade links to the neighbouring holiday town and fishing port of Cala Bona in the north, which practically is now almost becoming a part of the Cala Millor. In the south, it runs all the way to the small quiet resorts of Sa Coma and S’Illot.

This small peninsula, a declared Natural area of Special Interest, is a home to a variety of scenery with the diversity of flora and fauna, an emblematic Castle, and the watchtower that is a good lookout point over the beautiful bay.
