Information & Facts
Cala Millor is designed primarily for a relaxing beach holiday,
its seafront strewn with sunbeds and pleasant pavement cafes where
one can sit back and watch the world go by. The beach is well
supplied with all the popular watersports offered by local
operators, and glass-bottom boat trips. The more energetic can
enjoy strolling the promenade to the headlands and beyond, seeking
out the creeks and coves of the coastline. A little further afield
are a golf course, waterpark and several other attractions
including a safari park and the Drach underground caves, all
accessible by bus.
Spanish is the official language, but English is widely
understood in areas frequented by tourists. Catalan, Galician and
Basque are spoken in the relevant areas.
Spain's official currency is the Euro (EUR). One Euro is divided
into 100 cents. Money can be exchanged at bureaux de change and
major hotels, but banks give the best rates. All major credit cards
and travellers cheques are widely accepted at most hotels,
restaurants, and shops. ATMs are widespread and are generally the
cheapest and most convenient method of obtaining money.
Visitors looking for a good party and clubbing-scene should look
to other resorts as the nightlife is fairly limited in Cala Millor.
There is not much variety when it comes to shopping.
Nightlife in Cala Millor is essentially low-key compared to some
of Spain's well-known rowdy holiday hotspots. A great deal of
evening entertainment is hotel-based, but those who like to be out
and about will find plenty of fun at the numerous British bars,
like Cheers, which offer a variety of pursuits from karaoke to quiz
evenings or bingo. The younger set is catered for in a few discos,
the largest being Palace Q, open from 10pm to 6am with a dress code
and mix of Spanish and international music. The club scene,
however, is not as boisterous as that to which the 18-30 crowd is
There is a wide choice of restaurants scattered along the
seafront promenade of Cala Millor, and around the fishing harbour
at adjacent Cala Bona. Most are eclectic, serving a variety of
dishes to cater for the tastes of hungry holidaymakers with others
dedicated to international cuisine. Oxford Blue, Cafeteria
Restaurante Bella Vista, Alahambra and Antonio Montoro are Cala
Millor's top-rated eateries for holidaymakers. Fast-fooders will
find Burger King and KFC at hand.
Holidaymakers will find that the pedestrian promenade that runs
along the Cala Millor seafront is jam-packed with stores and stalls
selling a multitude of souvenirs and tourist requisites, open until
late in the evenings. Visitors will find, however, that the
selection is repeated over and over again in the different stores
and variety is limited. A fun option for shopping enthusiasts is to
head for Mallorca's markets where bargains like lace tablecloths or
leather goods can be picked up, after a bit of haggling. The
closest markets to Cala Millor are Son Servera, held on Friday
mornings, and Monacor on Mondays. Special buses are usually
available for holidaymakers to reach the bigger markets,
particularly those at Palma and Inca.
Local time is GMT +1 (GMT +2 between the last Sunday in March
