Another location in Pollensa Port was Llenaire beach situated right by the entrance of the Port coming from Alcudia. It is a small beach with pine trees and great views of the bay. And not to forget some scenes on the old Citroen car on the road that goes from Alcudia to Port de Pollensa.
You can enjoy great views of Sa Fortalesa property on a boat ride from Port de Pollensa to Formentor beach.

Porto Colom and Cala Figuera
Porto Colom situated in the municipality of Felanitx in the East coast of Mallorca was another location where Whites lines filmed. During 5 days they filmed at the streets Sa Capella and Sa Punta, and at the Sant Jaume square. As a traditional fishing coast village, Porto Colom retains its charm and attractive. The village is very picturesque with the boathouses, the lighthouse, the fishing boats and the quay.
Some examples on scenes on White Lines:
- Kika with the Portocolom lighthouse in the background.
- The religious procession demonstration of episode six.
- The area where Zoe’s father parks his campervan is the beach of S’Algar, also in Portocolom.
- The harbour at the end of the procession is Cala Figuera
You can enjoy both places on a road trip along the East Coast. Combine it with a visit at the Drach Caves, a stop at one of the hidden coves you can find in the East coast and a delicious dinner at one of Porto Colom restaurants for a perfect day out.
Located on the Southwest of the island, and close to the popular resorts of Santa Ponsa and Magaluf, Paguera is a small resort with mostly German clients. It has 3 beaches, Playa Romana, Playa de Tora and Playa de Palmira. Both are lovely beaches, with soft white sand and ideal for a relaxing day sunbathing.
Camp de Mar
In the first episode, there is a meeting between Oriol Calafat, Marcus and some drug dealers. This was filmend in Camp de Mar, at the Bar Restaurant Illeta. The place also appears on other episodes.
There are some great villas on White lines. For example, Marcus’ house. This villa is called Can Pirata and it is situated in Cala D’Or. In case you are interested, you can rent in Airbnb. As you can imagine, since the release of the series, the villa is been quite demanded.
Valldemosa is located on the Tranuntana mountain range and it is one of the most beautiful villages of Mallorca. In this municipality, White lines choose to film at S’Estaca finca. This property belongs to the famous actor Michael Douglas and her ex-wife Diandra Luker. Located on a spectacular place close to the sea, many scenes have been filmed. It is a Sicilian style mansion built in 1878 by the Archduke Luis Salvador, who came from an Austrian imperial family, and gave it to Catalina Homar. As a curiosity, the property is on sale for 50million euros.
See this property on a walk from the Port of Valldemosa to the Port of S’Estaca. It is not a long walk that will reward you with amazing views of the sea and the Foradada peninsula with a hole on the rock. The port of s’Estaca is very small and it is a very cosy place where to enjoy a swim and the quietness of this area.
Playa es Peregons
White lines couldn’t miss beaches, and in Mallorca there are plenty to choose from. The beach at Es Peregons is located close to Colonia de Sant Jordi and to the famous beach of Es Trenc. It is a virgin beach and not very busy. With crystal waters and soft white sand is been a perfect filming location for some scenes of the White lines.
You can visit this beach on a day out while on holiday in Mallorca. The best plan is to rent a car and to drive to Colonia de Sant Jordi. Park by the hotel El marques, and walk on the beach for about 700 meters to the beach. Take with you water and food. You can combine a day at this beach with a guided tour at Salines des Trenc and to learn about the salt production and with a stop at Cap Blanc on the way back to Palma to see the sunset.

The road is a masterpiece and rewards the visitors with outstanding views of the Mallorca mountain area.
