The aquamarine waves that lap Cala Llombards, located on Mallorca's southeast coast, are warm and gentle – and a favorite among families for that reason. Its picturesque setting is another point in its favor: Framed by pine trees and bobbing boatsheds, Cala Llombards boasts smooth white sands, plus a tropical beach bar that serves up cold drinks and plates of fish. In between snorkeling and sunning, you can stretch your legs on a walk toward Cala Santanyi, where you'll be rewarded with a view of Es Pontas, a natural arch rock outcropping that resembles a bridge.

Recent travelers appreciated this beach's noncommercial feel, but also recommended that you bring everything you'll need with you, as there are very limited facilities and only a handful of bars and restaurants in the surrounding area.

Situated about 35 miles southeast of Palma, Cala Llombards is best reached by car. It's accessible from the city via MA-19 to Santanyi. Once you reach Santanyi, follow the MA-6100 and at the roundabout take the exit to Cala Llombards. The beach is free to visit 24/7.

A UNESCO World Heritage site, Serra de Tramuntana ("mountains of the north wind") are located on Mallorca's northern coast and offer travelers the chance to hike, cycle or drive through a landscape of deep gorges, jaw-dropping cliffs and the highest peak in Mallorca, Puig Major.

Recent travelers said the experience of hiking through fragrant lemon and orange groves, olive orchards and awe-inspiring coastal views was "captivating." If you're driving rather than walking through Serra de Tramuntana, some travelers suggested taking your time – you'll be sharing the narrow winding roads with cyclists.
