Sights and attractions
You can hire a car and explore some local historic sights at the east of the island. For instance, the nearby Santueri Castle which dates back to Roman times and lies on the top of a large hill. There, you can experience breath-taking views of the east coast, and better still, entry is only €4. Or, you could go to Cuevas del Drach where you can experience beautiful caves from a boat ride and enjoy a live classical music concert. If you book online, the adult fare is €15 and the child fare is €8.
If you are on a budget, why not head to one of the serene soft sand beaches and enjoy basking in the sun. All of the beaches are quite small and great for sunbathing and swimming, but watch out because the sheltered coves really trap the sun so be sure to keep reapplying sun cream. Cala Gran and Cala Llonga are the biggest beaches and offer fun activities like windsurfing, sailing and scuba-diving.
Whatever your budget there is plenty to do in Cala d'Or to keep the whole family entertained. Around €60 a day should be plenty, what with the diverse range of eateries and free activities. Remember to pre-book ourCala d'Or airport transfersfor a stress-free start to your holiday.
