Cala Millor
Cala Millor is a sizeable resort of wide appeal, and one with which few would be disappointed. It is a popular and good package-holiday destination, though not the best of bases for exploring the rest of the island. The area is particularly popular with German holidaymakers.

Accommodation consists of a wide variety of hostels to holiday villages. There is also a good choice of hotel and self-catering accommodation, mainly in the modern middle range of quality. By far the main attraction to Cala Millor is its large impressive beach (900 yds by 55 yds) of fine, light sand with clear blue waters. Plentiful sunbeds and water sports are available and there is a nudist beach at Punta Amer.

Those looking for some souvenirs will find mainly "Artesanias" (handicraft shops) which sell tourist bric-a-brac. Boutiques, leather and jewellery stores, are present which are adequate but not special. There is a market in Son Servera on Friday; Porto Colom on Tuesday and Saturday; Cala Ratjada on Saturday; Arta on Tuesday; Manacor on Monday. The latter also has a renowned pearl factory.

Local excursions from the area tend to include: Half day: interesting old town of Arta, boat trips, glass-bottomed boats, pirate boats. Full day: Reserva Africana wildlife park on the edge of town; caves of Drach, San Salvador monastery; fishing port of Cala Figures; Caves of Hams (8 mls); Palma shopping; Alcudia, Formentor and monastery; Pollensa; Valldemosa and the west. Magalluf water park. Other local attractions include a 9-hole golf course nearby; range of water sports; several tennis clubs; karting. By night there are discos and music bars. Seasonal open-air disco just outside town.
