Cala Millor is the biggest resort on the eastern coastline of Mallorca Island. The most popular attraction is the long fine beach, thought of as one of the best on Mallorca. Cala Millor also has plenty of bars, quality restaurants, clubs and shops to keep the visitors happy.

The coast on the east of Mallorca Island is very rugged with plenty of smallish coves, so it is rare to locate such a fine stretch of white sand in this region of the island. Cala Millor beach, which is over one kilometre long, is found inside a sheltered cove in between two rocky capes. Sun beds and sunshades are available to rent, and there is a good selection of watersports, such as windsurfing, paragliding and skiing.

Along the beach is an esplanade that leads north to nearby village of Cala Bona, that is noted for its excellent fish restaurants and pavement cafes. There are another 3 man made beaches whith safe paddling for the young children. The esplanade is quite flat making it good for bicyclists.

There are popular glass bottom pleasure boat tours from the quay at the northern part of the beach, which cruise between Cala Rajada, Porto Cristo, with stops at Cala Bona, Sa Coma and S illot. Sometimes the boat will stop on the trip to let passengers to have a refreshing swim.

In the middle of Cala Millor is the popular gardens of the Parc de la Mar. The Fantasy play area for young children, complete with large inflatables and small rides is found near to the gardens. There is also a karting track on Avenida Bahia de Llevant further west of the Parc de la Mar. There are a few popular Cala Millor attractions within an easy drive of the town, including the Mallorca Aquarium and the famed Drac Caves near Porto Cristo, which is a series of large caverns with coloured stalactites and one of the biggest underground lakes in Europe.

Cala Millor fiestas, include the International Regatta during October when hot Air balloons from across the world participate in this popular festival. At the end of September the annual Tourism Week fiesta, featuring colourful parades, music concerts and competitions takes place. A more traditional event is the festival de Sant Antoni Abad in January, celebrating the patron saint of all animals.

Cala Millor is located over 38 miles (or nearly 60 km) from the capital, Palma de Mallorca, and about 12 miles from the nearby town of Manacor. There are regular bus services to Palma, Manacor and further along the coastline to Cala Bona, Sa Coma and even Porto Cristo. On weekdays there are also local market day bus services to Arta (on Tuesday), Sineu (on Wednesday), Inca (on Thursday) and Son Severa (on Friday).
