If you enjoy open-air activities, the picturesque scenery of the area will make your excursion – on foot, by bike, by boat, or even on horseback – an unforgettable experience.
Cala d’Or is, without doubt, one of the most attractive parts the south-east of Mallorca. One of the first tourist resorts (founded in 1933 by Pep Costa), Cala d’Or to this day retains the architectural style of his beloved Ibiza, with its white-washed buildings with flat roofs and dry-stone surrounding walls.
During its “golden years”, Cala d’Or was the meeting place for intellectuals, artists, musicians and moviemakers, who fell in love with its beaches of fine sand and turquoise waters.
The centre of the village is well worth a visit, to admire the original architecture of the older buildings and the unique church. The monument of Es Fortí, located some 600 meters from Rocamarina, offers the visitor superb views of the surrounding area.
Due to its proximity to the hotel, the port of Marina de Cala d’Or (www.marinacalador.es) invites you to take a walk around this attractive complex, on your way to the centre of Cala d’Or. Here – as well as all types of spectacular sail- and motor-boats – you will find a wide range of bars, restaurants and shops.
Very close to the hotel, and in the opposite direction to the centre of Cala d’Or, you will find the small village of Portopetro, which still retains the flavor of the old Mallorcan fishing ports.
One of the jewels of this part of the Island is this Natural Park, which – without a doubt – is well worth a visit. It consists of two magnificent beaches with turquoise water: Cala Mondragó and Cala s’Amarador.
A natural, unspoiled paradise, surrounded by pine trees.
If you are a golf fan, you can play (at a mere 7 kms. from the hotel) the18 holes that this course offers, whilst enjoying its spectacular views.
Another excursion which we recommend is a visit to the picturesque fishing village of Cala Figuera. This tiny port has served as inspiration, on numerous occasions, to local, national and foreign artists.
At a little more than one hour’s navigation time, the islands of Cabrera are one of the best examples of the unspoilt local ecosystem.
If you would like to visit, there are organized boat trips departing from La Colonia de Sant Jordi.
