Sleeping

There's an abundance of hotels in Cala d'Or, and all are seasonal: prices go up in summer, shutters come down between November and February. You'll always find something though, even in the depths of winter.

Eating

There are loads of bog-standard resort-style restaurants and unmemorable pizzerias in Cala d’Or. Port Petit is the place to head for a higher standard of table, at considerably higher prices.

Drinking & Nightlife

British pubs, German bier kellers, Polynesian theme bars, out-and-out nightclubs and even a Spanish place or two are plentiful in the grid of streets inland from Cala d'Or and Cala Gran. Avinguda de Belgica, Avinguda d'en Fernando Tarragó and Carrer d'en Toni Costa are some of the busiest strips.

Orientation

The main calas from west to east are Cala Egos, where there’s a tiny, overcrowded beach; Cala Llonga (Port Petit), home to the marina; Cala d’Or (Cala Petita), with its tree-lined shores; Cala Gran (Big Cove), with the widest beach of the lot; Cala Esmeralda, considered the prettiest cove; and Cala Ferrera, a busy, long beach backed by hotels.
