The high season between May and October in Mallorca always brings lots of tourists to its famous beaches, so those who like to spend their vacation in more calm and silent places have to look for other spots.

Fortunately, Mallorca has something to offer in this case.

Cala Llombard is a white sand cove on the southeast coast. It is framed by pine trees and visited only by local people and their visitors. The water in the cove is perfect for relaxed swimming and snorkeling.

Cala Tuent is hidden between rocky hills and hanging pine trees on the northwest coast. Its crystal clear water, pebbles, and sand don't attract many tourists, as most of the excursion buses usually only pass by. This cove may seem especially interesting as it is overlooked by the Saint Llorenc chapel from the hill.

Cala Deia is the place to go if you want to spot some famous actor or singer. It is hidden between rocky cliffs, making it a very secluded and chill place for sunbathing and swimming. Deia itself is a small and cozy city, which hosts an annual chamber music festival.

Playa de Muro in Alcudia isn't really unknown, so it can be moderately crowded. But due to several dunes, stone formations, and pine trees, it seems like it is divided into many small parts, thus providing a visitor the opportunity to pick a plot to their liking. Shallow waters can be found near Playa de Muro, so it is a perfect place for tourists with children.

Cala Torta is a long beach with white sand and clear blue water. It might be crowded from time to time, but its fame as an unofficial nudist beach typically doesn't attract many tourists. You can be clothes or undressed, whatever you prefer, in order to enjoy the hot sun and warm wind there.
