With holidays to Cala San Vicente in Spain's Balearic Islands, beachy afternoons and mountain-top views are the order of the day.

A pocketful of charm

Tucked at the northern end of Majorca, tiny Cala San Vicente has managed to keep its charms under wraps. In-the-know travellers come to this adorable Spanish fishing village for its rugged coastline, chilled-out beachside bars and traditional specialities – best chowed down with a sea view on the side.

Coastal walks

Three's a charm in Cala San Vicente, which has triplet beaches – each with a character of its own. Or, roll up the beach blanket and strap on your walking boots instead – cliffside hiking and biking paths reveal photo-worthy vistas out to sea, and the coast's peppered with sandy coves.

Drive up to views

A 10-minute drive puts you in Roman-era Puerto Pollensa, where you can stretch your legs heading up to the 18th-century chapel. There are 365 steps to the top, but the climb's worth it for the view when you get there. Meanwhile, the winding roads of the craggy Serra de Tramuntana mountains offer seriously jaw-dropping panoramas.
