Mallorca’s northeast: Beautiful region with rural flair
The north-east of the island is the place to be if you are looking for a country house or traditional finca surrounded by nature. The region is about an hour from the airport and therefore less affected by mass tourism. Here you will find rural tranquillity, beautiful nature, stunning beaches and picturesque coves.
The northeast of Mallorca has a traditional character. It is ideal for property buyers looking for an idyllic location away from the hustle and bustle of the city. But even if you’re looking for adventure, the northeast coast and surrounding areas offer plenty to keep busy. All in all, the northeast offers plenty of opportunities to enjoy the sea and discover Mallorcan culture.
Popular places on the north-east coast of Mallorca
One of the most popular towns in the northeast of Mallorca is Arta. It is famous for its beautiful old town. It is surrounded by a medieval wall. There are a lot of small shops and restaurants in the town as well. Near Arta is the Llevant Nature Park. It is known for its beautiful beaches and breathtaking scenery. The Park also offers many opportunities for walking and biking.
Another highlight in the northeast is the seaside resort of Cala Ratjada. It is famous for its long sandy beaches and crystal-clear bay. The most popular beaches in the area are Cala Agulla and Cala Moltó. Cala Ratjada offers a wide range of activities and attractions for the whole family. Lovers of traditional Mallorcan cuisine can enjoy the varied gastronomy and numerous restaurants. There are also many bars and clubs, which are particularly popular in the summer months.
A slightly smaller town on the north-east coast is Son Serra de Marina. It is particularly popular with families as the water is very shallow, perfect for swimming and splashing around. There are great opportunities for water sports such as kitesurfing and windsurfing.
