1- Playa de Port de Pollensa

The beach of Port de Pollença is ideal for families, offering many services, and it’s one of the most popular beaches for water sports such as surfing.
2- Cala Varques
Surrounded by an almost completely green terrain, Cala Varques is ideal for taking pictures of the island's exquisite beaches, as it’s a very quiet and uncrowded cove. Sandy and rocky, this cove has access to the largest network of marine caves in Europe, perfect for the adventurous folks out there!
3- Es Trenc
One of the island's most famous paradisiacal beaches, extremely large, and with turquoise waters that will make you feel like you're in the Caribbean. It’s also the longest unspoilt beach in Mallorca, 3.5 kilometres long and 60 metres wide, and so you'll always find a spot on the sand!
4- Cala Mesquida
When you think of images of paradisiacal beaches, a landscape like Cala Mesquida probably comes to mind. Turquoise and crystalline waters, white sand, mountains, dunes, and lots of vegetation make this beach a very special place indeed.
5- Cala d’Or
A small cove to the east of the island, which stands out for its beauty and tranquillity. Cala d'Or is very popular with families and its blue waters, green mountains, and white houses on the rocks are certainly worthy of a photo.
6- Cala Mondragó
Located within a protected natural area, Cala Mondragó has particularly impressive landscapes and biodiversity. Surrounded by vegetation, rocks and pine trees, it’s a true paradise on the island. It’s also an ideal place for snorkelling and discovering the wildlife of the Mediterranean.
7- Playa de Sa Calobra
Tucked away in the Serra de Tramuntana, this is one of the most special coves on the island. Sa Calobra beach leads onto the torrent de Pareis, another small cove, through a tunnel dug into the rock. This is surrounded by 200 metre cliffs which will make you feel like the size of an ant!
8- Cala Millor
Cala Millor is a very well-known beach on Mallorca. With a length of 1.5 kilometres, you’ll love its completely white sand and turquoise waters. It’s yet another part of the island where you’ll feel like you’re in the Caribbean. Unlike many other beaches on the island, at Cala Millor you’ll find many services, as well as nearby accommodation.
9- Cala Torta
An unspoilt beach of great natural beauty, Cala Torta stands out for its sea and mountain landscapes, adorned with green vegetation. It’s one of the few places with constant waves, making it ideal for surfing, windsurfing, and kitesurfing.
10- Cala Pi
The landscapes of Cala Pi are beautiful when seen from the cliffs and from the coast. This small cove is gaining popularity on Instagram and is tucked away between cliffs over 20 metres high.
And that ends our list of the 10 most picturesque beaches for your Instagram posts. However, on Mallorca you won’t only want to photograph beaches to put on Instagram - the small charming villages are also worthy of a good few photos. Almost straight out of a fairytale, the cathedrals, narrow streets, old houses, and harbours aren’t to be missed. In our opinion, the most beautiful villages to visit on the island are Valldemossa, Fornalutx, Sóller, Alcúdia and Pollença.
Mallorca is quite unique, and every one of its nooks and crannies will amaze you. From its small coves and paradisiacal beaches to its dreamlike villages, it’s an island that you’ll never tire of visiting.
