Sensational swathes of sundrenched sand, gently shelving into crystal clear waters, characterises majestic Majorca’s northeastern coast, for here you will encounter an abundance of the finest beaches that the island has to offer.

Alcanada, one of Majorca’s premier courses, is located at the northeastern extremity of the island, adjacent to Alcudia, the principle town of the region. The town actually has three different parts, the historic Old Town which is encircled by a 13th century medieval wall, where within, you will discover a bevy of bars and charismatic restaurants. Port D’ Alcudia, where the focal point is the harbour and again the plethora of  bars and eateries which encompass this delightful spot. Then, saving the best till last, Alcudia’s amazing 9 mile beach, one of the best beaches in Majorca. Just around the headland is laid back Puerto Pollenca should your preference be a more traditional, authentic ambience in which to relax.

A quartet of quality courses are clustered close to the medieval market town of Arta, a fascinating place whose skyline is dominated by a Moorish fortress. Pula Golf has hosted numerous European Tour events including the Mallorcan Classic between 2003 and 2007. Capdepera is an enchanting course with magnificent views of the surrounding countryside whilst Canyamel is a course to relish, designed by the Salvador Dali of golf course architects, Pepe Gancedo, who parades his quirky humour by leaving an old farmhouse in the middle of the 9th fairway! Completing this delightful diamond of diverse golf is Son Servera, the second oldest course on Majorca, it was originally 9 holes, a second loop being added in 2012.

The popular conurbations of Cala Bona and Cala Millor are conveniently close to the courses and together form the largest resort on the east coast. Cala Bona is centred around its harbor, while Cala Millor boasts three miles of sun kissed sand. If you prefer more sophisticated, sedate sanctuaries for your stay Cala Ratjada, Canyamel or Porto Cristo are perfect places.

The northeastern coast of Majorca oozes tradition and rustic realism, the atmospheric alternative to the more frenetic southwest, but safe in the knowledge that, due to the islands compact size, Palma and its multitude of courses are still within easy reach. It’s this diversity that makes Majorca’s northeast coast…
