What should I pack for Cala d'Or?

Choosing a sunshine destination invariably means that suitcases needn't be full to the brim with items. As part of your holiday preparations, be sure to pre-book our Cala d'Or airport transfers. It'll be one less thing that you'll need to think about when you arrive at the airport and are looking to get to your resort.

Here comes the sun

No matter what time of year it is, Cala d'Or is usually nice and warm. Naturally, it's the months of June, July, August and September that tend to be the hottest, with average highs of around 28°C. If you plan to visit during the summer, it makes sense to bring light-coloured, loose-fitting clothes, a sunhat, sunglasses and plenty of sunscreen.

Even if you intend to travel during the winter months, be prepared for a lot more warmth than you're used to at home at the same time of year. During December, January and February, highs of 16°C are quite normal.

Dress for the beach

One of the great things about enjoying a sunny beach is that it's not necessary to wear loads of clothes. In most cases, your swimwear of choice, a pair of sandals or flip-flops, a summer hat and sunglasses will suffice, especially during the summer. That said, if the sun's rays are particularly intense, be sure not to allow yourself to get too exposed. With this in mind, a t-shirt or short-sleeve shirt and a pair of shorts should be among the things that you pack. Oh, and don't forget to bring a beach towel.

Boots are made for walking

If you plan to take advantage of Parque Natural de Mondragó and Cala d'Or's many hiking trails, a sturdy, comfortable pair of walking boots is an absolute must.

Technical paraphernalia

Make sure you bring something that will allow you to take photographs, whether this is a dedicated camera or a smartphone. How else are you going to properly relive your holiday experiences? And don't forget any charging cables that you might need – and a travel adapter plug. (Majorca uses the two-round-pin system that allows connections of up to 240 volts.) You might want to consider bringing a portable USB-charging battery pack, too. That way, you can ensure that your phone – or any other portable gizmo – doesn't die on you at an inopportune moment.

Give yourself plenty of time to start compiling an ongoing list of things that you'll need to take. This way, it's very unlikely that you'll forget anything essential. Planning ahead always pays off in the long run, which is why we urge you to check out our airport transfers, too. We offer a wide range of vehicle options, all at competitive prices. Choose from a shared shuttle, to a private car or minibus which will get you from Palma airport to your resort efficiently and reliably.
