It’s decided; enjoy your holiday with a view to the Santa Ponsa Bay this year, this Mediterranean treasure far from all the hustle and bustle in the touristic area of Majorca, an east coastal hidden beauty where you can enjoy some of the loveliest and romantic sunsets in the island, an exclusive area in the Costa de la Calma, a paradise settlement with little apartments, luxury villas and high category hotels combined with a relaxing and natural landscape, ideal for those who like to rest next to the ocean, celebrate a special occasion or just spend summer holidays with family close to the beach and mountains.
With low population but with a wide variety of services, Costa de la Calma is an unknown place even for the Majorcans, and it remains as a secret, as they want to preserve the peace and calmness as long as possible.
When you visit Costa de la Calma for the first time, you can feel like you’d travel to the old Majorca, unexploited by tourism, an unexplored island with a few buildings close to the sea, and it’s strange nowadays because is hard to find this kind of preserved places close to the main touristic areas like Palma city (20 minutes through the motorway) or Santa Ponsa Town, which is just 5 minutes walking through the coast.
Costa de la Calma treasures its tradition, this small Majorcan village gives you the opportunity to disconnect yourself, enjoy the sunbath, the ocean, a refreshing beer, a traditional delightful Pa amb oli, a walk on the Mediterranean beach, a romantic dinner, or a sport day: Kayak, diving, golf, paddle surfing…
Hotels in Costa de la Calma have the characteristic of being integrated with the environment, using the natural beauty of the place and creating new ones that preserve it without ruin the tradition, (although there are some exceptions). An example of this is the IBEROSTAR Jardín del Sol, an Adults Only hotel over the Santa Ponsa cliff, which offers rooms with terrace and Jacuzzi giving you astonishing sunrises and dusks.
Another accommodation option in Santa Ponsa bay would be the Marítim Hotel Galatzó,a spa hotel in Costa de la Calma, designed for family holiday, a short break, conferences, weddings or business trips. Its privileged location makes it unique, letting you enjoy both the coasts and the mountains (it’s very close to the Puig Galatzo. Where it takes its name from) very well rated in websites like Tripadvisor or Minube.
The local celebrations are in summer, you can enjoy the open-air dances and the traditional correfocs de dimonis (a parade where people disguise as demons dancing to the tune of the drums around the fire). Kids can play around, as it isn’t a busy street, in fact, one of the best ways to go across the Santa Ponsa bay is by riding a bicycle.
The beaches of Peguera, Cala Fornells, and the Santa Ponsa itself as well as other coves are all very close where you can enjoy tranquillity far from the crowds, it’s recommended to ask in the lobby if you’re interested in these beautiful places since they usually don’t appear in the tourist guides and those who do, doesn’t include the bars, restaurants and many other interesting places, that surely exists, but remain well hidden.
