Cala San Vicente (also known as Cala San Vincente and Cala Sant Vicenc, Mallorca), is one of the smallest resorts on Mallorca, located in the far North West, in the Pollensa district. The village is still predominantly a fishing village, and even if you have taken a self catering Cala San Vicente apartment, you will still have to share the beach with local fishermen mending their nets! The village has a completely authentic, traditional atmosphere, where you can really enjoy the best of Mallorcan culture, far from the influences of the international tourist crowds.
Taking a Cala San Vicente apartment does not place you in the heart of a party resort like those of Magaluf, instead it offers a quiet place to stay, surrounded by stunning coastal and mountain scenery. The fine, white sand beach of Cala San Vicente is a delightful place to relax in the sun. Protected by a steep headland, bathing conditions on Cala San Vincent beach are good, and the sand is powder soft. The beach can get quiet crowded during the heat of the summer, but this whole coastline consists of a string of small, sandy coves separated by towering cliffs, meaning you will always be able to find a suitable spot, specially if you are prepared to take a bit of a walk. The beaches of Cala Clara, Cala Barques and Cala Molins are particularly worth finding. The snorkelling in the sea is exceptional.
A self catering Cala San Vicente apartment is an ideal base for getting into the stunningly dramatic scenery that surrounds the village. There are many, many miles of trails through the countryside and the Serra de Tramuntana Mountains, which are largely accessible on foot, although there are some very strenuous trails to conquer. There are also a range of fantastic golf courses on which to test your swing, as well as plenty of water sports facilities if you are prepared to travel the short distance to Pollensa.
Pollensa is Mallorca’s finest holiday resort, and if you would like to stay in a peaceful setting, yet with all the best facilities within close proximity, a Cala San Vicente apartment is the perfect solution. Pollensa has a huge range of water sports centres, as sailing, windsurfing, scuba diving and fishing trips all thrive in Pollensa, and if you are looking for an evening of entertainment or some good nightlife, the trip to Pollensa from a Cala San Vicente apartment is very manageable.
During the summer months, the cove beaches of Cala San Vicente can become quite crowded as the whole village descends towards the refreshment of the sea as temperatures reach over 30˚C in July and August. Conditions are such that you can happily eat your evening meal outside, watching the sun dipping below the amazing, soaring peaks which make up the horizon. During the winter months, a Cala San Vicente apartment is still a magnificent getaway, especially for artists trying to capture the changing light on the already dramatic landscape.
An apartment in Cala San Vicente is approximately 60 km from Palma International Airport (PMI). Palma receives an astonishing number of daily flights from airports across the UK, provided by a huge array of airlines. There are no tourist coaches making the journey from the airport to Cala San Vicente, but there are a range of fixed price taxis, which cost around 70 Euros.
