The fun-size fishing village
Cala San Vicente holidays allow you to fully immerse yourself in the tranquillity of Majorca, and its fascinating culture. Starting out as a fishing village, it retains much of its original charm and architecture, with just a few hotels offering you the chance to escape the crowds and focus on relaxing. Located at the very northern edge of the island, it offers three beaches for visitors to choose from, as well as rocky outcrops where you can enjoy some fantastic views.
Those who prefer to enjoy natural surroundings and activities will find opportunities to hike or mountain bike into the nearby Serra de Tramuntana Mountains. Here you’ll find stunning views and a chance to escape into the scented pines and rocky paths. Alternatively, try watersports and activities, or rent a boat and explore the pretty coves and golden beaches of the islands. Find your own little bay and swim, snorkel, and enjoy a delicious picnic on board the boat.

Hotel porters and maids will appreciate a small tip, and while taxi drivers don’t require a tip, it’s common to round up the fare.
