Sa Coma is a Mallorca highlight when it comes to sun, sand! The German-oriented resort has the clearest beach water I saw in Mallorca, and competes with the Caribbean when it comes to beautiful beaches.
The beach is not sheltered, so waves in Sa Coma get high when windy, but it was mostly calm during my visit. Clear and exceptional for swimming! My picture is from a very rocky side, but the beach below my hotel was sandy and waters were calm most of the time!
Cala Millor is boring, also German-oriented, with a small sheltered beach (but not isolated; right next to lots of restaurants, so no privacy). There’s shopping here compared to Sa Coma, but Mango is about as interesting as it gets.
South of Sa Coma, originally a traditional fishing village is the different S’Illot. It’s a small resort today, but looks more authentic than both Sa Coma and Cala Millor. A lot of British people have established bars and restaurants in this area. The beach is popular with locals, for sports and laying in the loungers. One night I spotted a couple taking a dip and it made for the best picture during my trip, I took a piece of their romance with me back home.
On Wednesdays there is a market (evening after 7 pm) near Coma Gran Aparthotel.
Another place worth exploring, and dining at is Cala Bona.
Not touristy, has about ten restaurants (if you round the corner closest tot the harbour), a church, and some shops (the one next to the roundabout looked interesting). I very much enjoyed walking up and down the steep streets in this town, looking at the colorful and well-kept buildings.
