Cala Vinyes is one of Majorca’s smaller resorts catering more for families and the older generation.

The resort town is located on the island of Mallorca in the Mediterranean Sea.

The town is situated on a bay between two rocky headlands and is known for its clear blue waters and sandy beaches.

There are several restaurants and bars located in the town, as well as a number of small shops.

Located in the municipality of Calvia and only a few kilometres from Majorca’s busy resorts of Magaluf and Palma Nova, Cala Vinyes offers an ideal retreat for those seeking a quieter holiday, whilst being within taxi distance of its two larger neighbours in the event that you may want a big night out.

In the resort, you’ll find a few bars and restaurants (Chinese, Italian, etc).

Visitors to Cala Vinyes can enjoy swimming, sunbathing, windsurfing, and other water sports.

A car rental business also operates from a unit on the main road.

There is a small rock outcrop that can be accessed by going down the steps next to the Hotel Cala Vinyes.

This area is ideal for fishing, but swimming is not recommended as getting back on dry land would prove difficult and quite dangerous.

There is, however, a natural small pool formed in the rocks, about 2 to 3 meters back from the sea, which is constantly fed with fresh seawater by a channel carved into the rock.

Cala Vinyes History

Cala Vinyes is a small resort with a long history.

The first records of the resort date back to the 13th century, when it was mentioned in a document as a small fishing village.

Over the centuries, the village grew and prospered, and by the 18th century, it had become a popular resort for wealthy families from Spain and other countries.

Today, the resort is still a popular holiday destination and is known for its beautiful beaches, clear waters, and relaxed atmosphere.

The Cala Vinyes Beach

If it’s a sand beach with palm trees you’re looking for, head towards the centre of Cala Vinyes bay.

The beach here is well catered for with regards to food, drink and other facilities; however, access to the beach from the main road adjacent to the resort main hotel (Hotel Cala Vinyes) involves a walk down a slope of around 100 steps and may prove difficult for those with walking difficulties.
