While we were in Mallorca, we visited some of the most beautiful beaches the island offered. Two in particular stood out as favorites with the bluest waters and unique features. I’m breaking them down in a 2-part series highlighting our family favorite, Cala Lombards, first.
We left our hotel hungry and discovered there was a restaurant right on the beach. The shaded tables at Chiringuito Cala Lombards were full yet there always seemed to be an open spot for anyone walking up – a few people also walked in with reservations which might be a good idea during peak season. We were seated right away and we ate the most simple yet delicious sandwiches paired with a glass of wine of course before heading into the water.
After lunch we found a spot near the waters edge to set our towels and immediately went in the water – the temperate was perfect and we couldn’t have asked for better weather. If we ever go back to Mallorca (or should I say “when we go back to Mallorca…”) we will most definitely try to go again in September. The crowds were light and the weather was nothing short of perfect. We did not snorkel this trip but this would have been a great spot for it.
After playing in the water and relaxing post lunch, we decided to explore a bit and walked along a path on the rocky cliff to see what we could see. The path was easy and safe for kids with a rail and steps where needed. And oh so scenic! We could see the entire cove, further out into the sea and also the beautiful white buildings with the prettiest green doors on the adjacent cliff.
We ended up at a point that looked like a great spot to sit for a bit or even jump in! There was a ladder and several groups lounging on the flat edge of the cliff.
One family greeted us and we chatted for a bit until Rob and Landyn decided to take the plunge! They both jumped in and the adult son from the family we met asked if we would like him to take a picture for us. He had a professional camera and I exchanged my email address for him to send a few snaps when they returned the the US from their trip. Fast forward a few weeks later when he sent the most AMAZING photos ever. Turns out he’s a professional photographer (you can check out his site here) amongst other talents and he was truly so kind to capture our Cala Lombards cliff jumping experience.
To top it off, Landyn and Rob swam back from the cliffs all the way back to the shore. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate a Birthday than making memories with family! If you ever find yourself in Mallorca, make sure to add Cala Lombards to your itinerary, you will not be disappointed!
