Cala Sant Vicenç

The little resort of Cala Sant Vicenç is our first stop of today’s road trip.

Known in Castillian Spanish as Cala San Vincente and in Mallorquin as Cala Sant Vicenc, this is one of the smallest resorts on Mallorca.

The main attraction here is the peace, tranquillity and three small beaches.

The resort is divided by a rocky outcrop that protrudes between the beaches of Cala Barques and Cala Molins. 

On the northern tip of Mallorca is the Cap de Formentor, where the top end of the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range meets the Mediterranean.

Cap de Formentor literally means ‘end of Formentor’ – the name of the 20-kilometre peninsula, northeast of the port of Pollença.

The peninsula is known as the ‘meeting point of the winds’ because its exposure to the sea means winds from all directions converge.

The cap ends at an iconic lighthouse. However that stretch of road has been shut for quite a while so you can’t actually visit it now.

The nearest we got is the Mirador Es Colomer Formentor which still offers stunning views.
