Destination guide

Making the most of Cala d'Or holiday homes

Cala d'Or was made famous by the shimmering blue of its coves. There are 5 in all, dipping in and out of the pine-scented edge of eastern Mallorca. Each has its own style, from the natural swimming pool that is Cala Gran to the photo-worthy inlet of Calo des Corral, backstopped by soft sands and washed by turquoise seas. These days, Cala d'Or holiday lettings are an upscale choice. Chic and stylish, they face shining yachts and rows of elegant cocktail bars.
