About Cala Molins
Cala Molins is one of three beaches that are part of the resort town of Cala Sant Vicenç, which is about 10 km from Pollença and close to Port de Pollença in the northwest of Mallorca. The other two beaches are Cala Clara and Cala Varques. Cala Molins is likely the most touristic of the Cala Sant Vicenç beaches, mainly due to the number of hotels and houses located here, and the crowd is often middle age and older British and Germans, as well as families. It is a Blue Flag beach, which is a prestigious award that celebrates its cleanliness and dedication to high environmental standards.
The water is quite clear and turquoise blue and the sand is soft. For a small beach, it is only about 50 metres wide, it has all the amenities you need. Parasols and lounge chairs are for rent, there is a beach front restaurant and a handful of other cafe’s and restaurants in the nearby village of Cala Sant Vicenç, and there is a small selection of water sports activities including SUP and kayaking. There are onsite facilities including showers, changing stations and toilets. Cala Molins is immediately surrounded by urban development, but it is a small village that gives way to a beautiful, mountainous landscape, including the dramatic scenery of Formentor in the distance.
