Exploring Cala Magraner

Happy Monday, friends! I hope you're all having a fantastic start of the week. I'm finally back with a new post about an exciting excursion my boyfriend and I went on a while ago. On a busy summer afternoon we decided to escape the tourist crowds and check out a new hidden place we've never been to, the beautiful Cala Magraner.

Cala Magraner in Mallorca

Cala Magraner is located in the east of Mallorca, not far from Manacor. You have to park your car on a street and walk to the cove for about half an hour which is why it's quite empty even during high season. I love hidden places like this because tourists are usually to lazy to visit them, haha. Even though it was quite hot on the day of our excursion I really enjoyed the walk to the cove. We passed a beautiful Mediterranean landscape with pine, olive and almond trees, red soil, stone walls, sheep and we even spotted two wild turtles on our way!

Once we got to the cove we were happily suprised, it was super empty. Only a few boats and some people relaxing and swimming here and there. Cala Magraner is a pebble beach with stunning crystal clear water. Before laying down to relax and have a picnic we went for a little walk to explore the coast around the cove for a bit. You can walk up on the right side of the cove to the top of the rocks from where you have a breathtaking view of both Cala Magraner and the smaller Cala Virgili that is located right next to it. On the left side of Cala Magraner we also saw many people rock climbing. It seems to be a popular spot for this kind of activity thanks to its quite even, high walls of beautiful cream-colored rocks. Cala Magraner also looks like a great spot for cliff diving or snorkeling. Unfortunately we didn't bring our snorkels that day but will definitely do so if we go back in the future.

We spent the rest of our afternoon swimming, napping and enjoying a picnic by the sea. On our way back to the car we were so lucky to watch a beautiful sunset over the endless fields. And again I thought 'how fortunate am I to live on this island and spend my days like this'...
