Cala Vinyes is one of Majorca’s smaller resorts catering more towards families and the older generation.
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). 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.
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 food, drink and other facilities; however, access to the beach from the main road adjacent to the resorts main hotel (Hotel Cala Vinyes) involves a walk down a slope of around 100 steps and may prove difficult for those with walking difficulties.
