Best beach picnic spots in North Mallorca

Mallorca has some of the best beaches in the Mediterranean and many make a great location for a picnic with a view. What could be better than sun, sand, sea, and sumptuous food in style. Here we name our favourite beaches for a Cala & Campo picnic.

Puerto Pollenca Beach

The main beach at Puerto Pollenca is just a two-minute walk from our Pick-up-point. The beach almost one and a half kilometres long and very wide. From this popular beach there are impressive views of the mountains, the Formentor peninsula and the Fortaleza. With many facilities including toilets, showers and sunbed/pedalo hire along the beach, it is a popular family friendly location all summer long. The waters are also warm and calm with demarcated swimming areas so it is safe for children of all ages.

The town has many bars and restaurants, but these can be extremely busy in the summer months. For a more relaxed dining option the beach has many excellent places for a picnic. Some areas have picnic table facilities as well!

To the north of the marina (left as you look at the sea) you will come to the famous “Pine Walk” and a long stretch of narrow sandy beach which is ideal for paddling. Here the beach benefits from the shade of many pine trees. From the right side of the marina there is a very long stretch of deep, wide sandy beach with plenty of space to enjoy a picnic. Once you reach Llenaire there is a small park with picnic tables under a wooded area. This area is very popular with locals all year round. If you continue towards Alcudia, you come across the rough, natural part known as Can Cap de Bou. If you find a spot amongst the pebbles you will, on most occasions, have the place to yourself. There is a small, sandier section opposite the Club Pollentia resort which offers sun bed and parasol rental.

Mal Pas Beach

The beach of Sant Pere at Mal Pas is small but beautifully charming. The beach is less than 100 metres long and 80 metres wide with fine sand and crystal-clear waters. It is popular with the locals but is seldom overcrowded. The view, that stretches from the beach, around the bay and over to the Formentor Peninsular is magnificent. Parking can be found along neighbouring streets.

S’Illot Beach

Located close to Alcudia, S’illot offers a stunning setting with sea views over the bay of Pollença and Formentor. There’s a delightful little picnic area by the pebbled beach, which has a number of picnic tables. Snorkelling is a big draw here thanks to the rock pools and turquoise waters.

La Victoria Beach

About halfway down the Alcúdia peninsula, close to the Ermita de Victoria church is a delightful spot with picnic tables right beside a pebble beach. There is great snorkelling here and the beach can be quieter than others during busy summer months.

Al Canada

Alcanada Beach is on the opposite side of the Alcudia peninsula to La Victoria. It is situated three kilometres to the east of Port d’Alcudia beach. The beach faces the Alcanada islet with its little lighthouse and has views across the Bay of Alcudia. The beach is narrow and pebbly, but it is easy to park, there is plenty of shade and a number of picnic tables. The beach is a favoured spot for many locals as there is good swimming and snorkelling.

Formentor Beach

Even though the beach is small, Formentor is very picturesque and flanked with scented Pines that provide plenty of shade from the summer sun. The stunning location and turquoise waters make the beach extremely popular. The drive to the beach is very beautiful and once there you can park for around 10 euros/day.

Alcudia Beach

Alcudia bay has a fantastic sandy beach which is very child friendly. The beach runs for 10kms through Muro and on to C’an Picafort. The beach is at its widest at Port d’Alcudia, with golden, finegrained sand and very shallow water which is usually completely calm. It is a great spot for kids to splash around. There are many sections where it is possible to rent sun lounges and sunshades, but there is also plenty of room for those, who prefer to lie on their towels. There are also a number of free showers as well as numerous rental spots for all types of water sports including parasailing, water skis, jet skis, and water bikes etc.

Muro Beach

Often cited as one of Mallorca’s finest beaches, the 3 kilometre long, golden sandy beach of Playa de Muro is officially divided into two sections Sectors 1 and 2. The beach sectors are signposted to the left of the road that runs behind the beach between Alcudia and C’an Picafort. The first sector offers sun bed hire and there are some beach bars at intervals. The second section is flanked by sand dunes and offers little or no infrastructure. This secluded section tends to be quieter in the busy summer months. All along the beach has beautiful views across the bay to the mountains and the water is clear, shallow and in general, relatively calm. Muro is one of the best beaches on the island to enjoy a picnic.

Cala San Vincent

Cala San Vincent is actually a seaside village with 4 very different beaches: Cala Barques, the first beach which is ahead and left as you drive into town is the largest. Barques is pretty and largely rocky with lots of interesting landmarks. A small path leads to the middle, smaller beach, Cala Clara, which can be crowded as it is in front of a hotel. The third beach, Cala Molins, is very popular due to its very white sand and clear waters. The forth beach is to the East of the village and is small and stoney. It has good snorkelling and diving but isn’t great for younger children. Between the coves there are also spots to have a picnic if the beaches themselves are crowded.
