The village of Daia is lovely with restaurants I'd love to try. The beach however is the worst beach I've been to that is a tourist beach. We got there at 11am and it was about full of people but I was utterly baffled as to why. People were bravely trying to have fun with the water but it's really... More

The town was very picturesque. The drive to the beach was full of hairpin turns, parking was a nightmare, and the beach was very crowded.

Deía is a gem, with its tranquil cemetery, where Robert Grafves is buried, at the top of a steep climb to the top of the village. The village seems from another time and is quiet, slowly baking in the heat of the day.

This beach has a really beautiful setting but don't believe the guidebooks: it's not shingle or even pebble, it is rock, which makes getting in and out of the water treacherous, even with special shoes. Secondly, it is plagued by jellyfish. One to visit for a drink and look out to sea, not for the bathing!

Mallorca top 10; the guardian travel; google images - they all lie. Reviews and fellow travellers have told of us a lovely little secluded pebble cove, watch out for whose super yacht is parked in the bay, well worth the 40 minute walk down a steep hillside. Unless I took a wrong turn somewhere this was the most disappointing beach... More

When you come to Deia, you feel the vibes of creativity. Wherever you turn, there is art - paintings, sculptures, interior design... The place is multicultural - artists have come to live here from elsewhere. They all speak different languages, but have one thing in common: made Mallorca their home. Deep in my hreat I know that will go back... More

Pebbly 'hippy' cove with caves to swim out to and explore, great for swimming and dining - two restaurants, one informal for snack meals and drinks, the other slightly more formal serves nicer meals. Love it

From Deia village church to the cove-cala Deia is about 40min downhil-45min uphill to go back via a very old mule path clearly sigh-posted. The large boulders and rocks make the beach even smaller but a refreshing dip is the reward for the walk. Quite expensive seafood restaurant in the old boatshelters in Cale Deia

It's a cove, that's the plus point, negatives are that it's overcrowded, and that entering the water on a choppy day is a bit dangerous. Most people didn't even seem to be interested in swimming, which was strange as that seemed the better alternative to lying on rocks (no sand, just large rocks everywhere). I would say you need to...
