Santa Ponsa

A lively holiday town

Visitors have been flocking to this buzzy resort in southwest Majorca since the 1950s, and no wonder. There’s a huge stretch of sandy beach, plus a big range of restaurants and nightlife. And you’re well placed for getting around the island – Palma Nova and Magaluf are 10 minutes down the road, while Palma, the capital, is just 20 kilometres away.

A duo of beaches

The main beach, Playa Santa Ponsa, is a wide expanse of soft, white sands. It’s got every amenity, from loungers and umbrellas to volleyball nets. And behind the sands you’ve a prom dotted with bars and cafes. This backs onto pine woods where, if you look closely, you’ll spot the parakeets. Head towards the marina, meanwhile, and you’ll come across a smaller, quieter stretch, known as Little Beach.

Daytrips to Palma

There’s plenty to see in this cosmopolitan city, not least the vast Seu Cathedral, a skyline-dominating affair begun in 1229. You’ll also get some spectacular views from the well-preserved Bellver Castle, now a museum. And after that, you can have lunch at a café in the Passeig des Born, a wide, tree-lined avenue that offers up some of the best people-watching.
