Cala d'Or is known to be a rather up-market resort, and there are few reports of crime there. However, some local opportunists might still try to take advantage of tourists, so keep an eye on your valuables and don't be alone in isolated areas at night. Whether you're at home, or on holiday, you are always at some level of risk of being robbed or scammed. So, it's always best to have your wits about you. This includes avoiding carrying large amounts of cash and putting your wallet in your back pocket, and being diligent when ordering a taxi. Cala d'Or, on the whole, should be safer than busier, more populated resorts where there are more tourists and higher organised crime levels.
You don't need to get any vaccinations before you travel to Cala d'Or. However, head to your doctors at least six weeks before if you have any concerns about any medical conditions. The healthcare system in Majorca has a great reputation so you should be in good hands – if it is needed. The nearest hospital is a 20-minute drive away in neighbouring town, Manacor.
The hottest month in Cala d'Or is August with an average temperature of 26°C and highs of 30°C. July has the most daily hours of sunshine with 11 hours per day. With so many beaches and scenic coves to explore remember to keep yourself protected from the sunlight. The coves are sheltered too which makes them real sun-traps. Make sure to keep reapplying sun cream and wear a high factor, as well as wearing sun hats and sunglasses. The sun is at its strongest between 11am and 3pm so be extra careful in this time period.
As well as remembering to keep safe, it's important to enjoy yourself! Holidays are about letting your hair down and feeling free, so don't live in constant fear of something going wrong – just be aware. Don't forget to pre-book ourCala d'Or airport transfers.
