Cala Millor is a modern purpose-built resort with little local character, dating from the 1950s and clinging to an impressive length of beach.
The central part has a fine seafront promenade, lined with plenty of trees; a clean wide pedestrianised artery runs parallel. Most of the nightlife is found here and there are plenty of British and German pubs, karaoke bars and fast-food eateries.
Cala Millor is located on the E coast, 12 mls E of the town of Manacor, 44 mls E of Palma. The resort overlooks Levante Bay between the mountains of Puig Sa Font and Puig Son Lluc; on land that slopes gently down to the sea from low pine-covered hills backed by farmland, almond trees and orchards. Adjacent to the protected nature reserve of Punta Amer.
Cala Millor is a sizeable resort of wide appeal, and one with which few would be disappointed. It is a popular and good package-holiday destination, though not the best of bases for exploring the rest of the island. The area is particularly popular with German holidaymakers.
Those looking for some souvenirs will find mainly “Artesanias” (handicraft shops) which sell tourist bric-a-brac. Boutiques, leather and jewellery stores, are present which are adequate but not special. There is a market in Son Servera on Friday; Porto Colom on Tuesday and Saturday; Cala Ratjada on Saturday; Arta on Tuesday; Manacor on Monday. The latter also has a renowned pearl factory.
