Holidays to Cala Mesquida bring to the table a soft white-sand beach, waterfront restaurants and turquoise seascapes.

Dreamy views

For a small island town, Cala Mesquida has bundles to offer. You can thank its setting on the north-east coast of the Balearic Island of Majorca for its top-notch beach – think uber-soft, powdery white sands and turquoise tides lapping a shoreline shaded by dunes and pine trees.

Cave dwellers

Drive 15 minutes to Arta and you'll find a completely different kind of vibe. Arta's home to underground caves, called the Cuevas de Arta, which used to be hideouts for swashbuckling pirates. Take a guided tour to see a sound and light display projected on stalactites that stand up to 22 metres tall.

Tasty treats

When your stomach starts to rumble, head to one of Cala Mesquida's ocean-view restaurants. Take in the sights at the beach and tuck in to homemade pizza and paella, or feast on fresh seafood with a glass of something chilled.
