General info: 

Cala Mondrago is a small Blue Flag beach situated within Mondrago National Park in the south east corner of Majorca.

It has been protected from development and is considered to be one of Mallorca's most beautiful areas, with it's sand dunes, pine forests, beautiful coastline and rocky coves. There are sun loungers and parasols to rent and a bar and restaurant for refreshments.

If you find that the beach is way too busy when you arrive, you can try S'Aramador beach to the east in the next door cove, and is much larger (although still very popular). To the west lies the pretty but smaller beach of Calo des Burgit.

The closest resort to Mondrago is Cala d'Or, or if you'd like to stay somewhere more traditionally Mallorca, try the inland village of Santanyi.

Getting there: 

There is one hotel built behind the beach but most people will travel here specifically for the beach. If you come by car there is free parking or you can catch the 710 tib bus or the 731 Trasunion bus from Cala d'Or, the bus ride takes about 25mins and the first bus leaves Cala d'Or at 8.30am.
