Holidays to Deia take you to Majorca’s most beautiful village. No wonder so many artists, writers and rock stars have chosen to call it home.
Majorca’s famous face
Beautiful Deia on Majorca’s northwest coast, is one of the island’s most famous villages. It’s got real star wattage. Richard Branson and Mick Jagger have lived here, doubtless seduced by the orange and olive groves, and its lovely location between the mountains and the sea. But it retains a low-key vibe – this is a real, working village where you’ll find local tapas bars next to the 5-star hotels.
A paradise beach
It’s a 5-minute drive to Cala Deia beach. It might be small and shingly, but the clear waters and surrounding greenery make for a very pretty spot. Trees and cliffs shelter the bay, giving you the feeling that you’ve stumbled across some secret cove. But it’s not so tucked away that there’s no beach scene – you’ve got a couple of lively restaurants on the sands.
Daytrips to Palma
It’s just half an hour’s drive to the island’s sophisticated capital, Palma. Here you can wander around the old town, Barri Gòtic – a labyrinth of narrow, cobbled streets and atmospheric tapas bars and boutiques. Also in these parts you’ve got La Seu Cathedral, a skyline-dominating affair that took some 300 years to build.
Things to See and Do in Deia
The coastline here is mainly rocky although there are plenty of good swimming spots. The coastal path means there are lots of opportunities to stroll along to a secluded inlet of your choice where you can spend the day relaxing in the sun or bathing in the Mediterranean. There are some bars and restaurants along the coast if you are looking to refuel after a day swimming and snorkelling in the sea. Have a drink and take in the view while the sun descends on a great day.
