Established in response to Mallorca’s growing holiday industry, these are primarily beach holiday resorts and are great place from which to explore the East Coast of Mallorca.

Popular attractions include glass-bottom boat trips from Porto Cristo and Porto Colom and the Cuevas de Drach (Caves of Drach), a network of caves just outside Porto Cristo.

There is a wide range of sporting and recreational activities, including most water sports and golf at the well-known Vall d’Or 9-hole course.

Cala Murada offers a tranquil setting while Calas de Mallorca is a bit livelier with a wider range of bars, restaurants and other entertainments. The development of these resorts has not, however, spoilt the coastal scenery in the area, much of which is protected.
