5 beautiful dog spots on Mallorca
If you are on Mallorca with your four-legged friend, then you have almost endless possibilities to pass the time. Below you will find five tips for the most beautiful places that you and your pet should definitely see:
Refreshment at the dog beach
There's no question about it: the Balearic island stands for unique beaches and bathing holidays on the Mediterranean. That's why our tips start with the official dog beaches, where your best friend can romp and swim to his heart's content, leash-free, among fellow dogs. The bays are signposted "Playa canina".
- Playa Punta Marroig in Palmanova (in the south of Mallorca): Between Palmanova and Es Carregador. The bathing bay is open from 8 to 20 o'clock.
- Cala dels gats on the Costa de la Palma (in the south of Mallorca): This small bay consists of sand and stones and extends between Punta dels Gats and Cala Blanca. Here, too, the opening hours are from 8 am to 8 pm.
- Playa de Llenaire in Port de Pollença (in the north of Mallorca): This almost 600-metre-long stretch of beach is located right in the traditional fishing village of Port de Pollença and is made up of rocks and stones (plenty of shaded areas available).
- Playa Na Patana in the municipality of Santa Margarida (in the northeast of Mallorca): This very popular sandy cove stretches about two kilometres from Can Picafort, between the mouth of the Son Baulo and Son Real torrents.
- Es Carnatge beach (near Palma de Mallorca): About nine kilometres from Palma, between Coll den Rabassa and Can Pastilla.
In addition, there are some municipal areas that allow four-legged friends on the coast. These include Andratx, Pollença and Capdepera. Here, dogs are allowed to enjoy the beaches without restrictions during the winter season (from 1 November to 31 March). Artá also sets a pet-friendly example. Here, pets can even enjoy the sea breeze at the coves from 1 October to 30 April. The administration of Muro allows beach walks with dogs between the 1st of November and the 28th of February.
Please note: in all other municipalities of the Balearic Island, access to the beaches for pets is not allowed 365 days a year, unless they are officially signposted as dog beaches.
