Cala San Vicente

September 17, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

Cala San Vincente is a beautiful little resort set in what is still essentially a fishing village. Situated on the north eastern coast, about three miles from Pollensa, Cala San Vincente boasts spectacular scenery, appealing old houses and three beaches. This is not the place to come for all-night parties or immense hotel complexes, but suits those seeking to relax and enjoy the character of the area.

The prime beach is Cala Barques, where holidaymakers can expect to share the space with local fishermen repairing nets, as well as their equipment! There are also many beachside restaurants and bars on offer. Tucked around a rocky hillock is the tiny, but often crowded Cala Clara beach. A little bit further on is the popular swimming beach of Cala Molins, whose sand is imported each year.

The water is mild and crystal clear and ideal for swimmers, and the views are spectacular. There is not much in the way of shopping on offer in Cala San Vincente besides the basics, but the nearby town of Pollensa offers a greater selection and a bustling Sunday market, as well as many historic buildings.

A popular local attraction is a series of prehistoric man-made caves while closer to Pollensa are the Calvari steps; 365 tree-lined steps that lead up to the minute Calvari church and its antique wooden cross. For the less culturally inclined, a mini golf course is also on offer.
