The sun-kissed resort of Camp de Mar lies on the southwest corner of Majorca. Peaceful Camp de Mar enjoys year-round sun with temperatures reaching 30oC in the summer. The town is nested in a secluded bay surrounded on all sides by large cliffs, protecting it from high winds. The coast is coated with miles of silky-soft, golden sand, and offers incredible views over the Mediterranean Sea.
Camp de Mar oozes class and sophistication. While other coastal towns in Majorca have undergone numerous developments in recent years to cater to holidaymakers, Camp de Mar remains relatively untouched and stands as a picturesque little village away from the usual tourist crowds. This authenticity and isolation makes the resort a favourite holiday destination of the rich and famous; celebrities such as Tom Cruise and Michael Schumacher own property in the area and regularly visit the island in summer. The tranquility of Camp de Mar makes it an excellent resort for those looking to earn a tan without the hustle and bustle of larger tourist towns, meaning the town is a popular destination for families and couples. Travellers hoping to explore the island will also find that Camp de Mar makes a perfect base in which to unwind between adventures.
The capital city of Palma is only a 40-minute trip from Camp de Mar, and is the best place to soak in the rich culture of Majorca. Founded over two millennia ago, the remnants of Palma’s Moorish and Roman occupants can still be seen throughout the city. As they say in Majorca, you know you’re in Palma when you can see the gargantuan spires of La Seu cathedral towering above the city. The Old Town reflects a heavy Roman influence, with cosy restaurants and cafés tucked away in its narrow, winding streets. When you’re not admiring Palma’s history, the beating heart of the city can be found in its centre, with leisure centres, theatres and shopping malls around every corner. Whatever you’re looking for, Palma makes a fantastic spot for a day trip, and is a must-see during your stay in Camp de Mar.
Just around the coast from Camp de Mar is Santa Ponsa, one of Majorca’s more lively resorts. The vibrant nightlife, enormous beach and child-friendly cabaret bars makes Santa Ponsa popular with partygoers and families alike. The town has felt a very heavy Celtic influence throughout the years, so if you need an excuse to get out of the sun, why not kick back with a cold beer at one of the many Irish pubs? The main beach, Playa Santa Ponsa, is a family favourite thanks to the lifeguards dotted along the shore and the nearby beach bars. There is also a smaller, quieter beach around the coast for anyone looking to escape the larger crowds.
Magaluf is the undisputed party capital of Majorca. Located between Camp de Mar and Palma, the bright lights of Magaluf can be seen illuminating the night sky from miles away, with some of the world’s greatest and most famous nightclubs found on the Punta Ballena strip. The party never stops in Magaluf, with incredible pool parties during the day and mind-blowing raves all night long. World-class DJs such as David Guetta and Calvin Harris lead the masses twice a week at the BH Hotel during the Mallorca Rocks festival, a 4-month fiesta that takes over the resort between May and August. The eclectic mixture of bars and clubs makes a night out in Magaluf a right of passage for any serious party animal!
Exploring Camp de Mar...
Challenge a Championship-Level Golf Course
If you’re planning a visit to Camp de Mar, you’d better start working on your backswing- you’ll be spoilt for choice with six world-class golf courses right on your doorstep. The beautiful Golf de Andratx is renowned as one of the best courses in Europe, built around the natural landscape and with 18 holes to practice your putt. It’s no wonder that Camp de Mar is a popular destination with celebrities- the likes of Boris Becker and Catherine Zeta-Jones can often be seen polishing their clubs on a sunny day.
Take the boat to Dragonera Island
Sa Dragonera is a small island just off the west coast of Majorca, and boat trips from the nearby town of Sant Elm run regularly throughout the day. Now a natural park, it’s claimed that the island was once the hideout of the infamous pirate Barbarossa! Many different species of tropical fish can be seen swimming in the clear waters around the island, so be sure to bring your snorkelling gear.
Relax on Camp de Mar beach
The shoreline of Camp de Mar is a stretch of soft white sand bordered by calm waters, thanks to the protective cliffs surrounding the resort. With lifeguards on duty during the day and sunbeds for hire, the beach is the perfect spot to top up your tan or take a splash in the sea. Toilets and showers are close by, and the beach has disabled access from the main strip..
The best part about Majorcan food is that everything is grown or caught locally. Fruits and vegetables are grown all over the island thanks to the climate, such as the native Ramallet tomato, and vegetarians will delight in knowing that these are the main feature of many Majorcan recipes.
Camp de Mar restaurants
The sophisticated air of Camp de Mar is reflected in its the selection of restaurants. For a taste of authentic Spanish cuisine, try the tapas at Flor de Sal. It’s a long way up the stairs to the restaurant, but once up there you’ll have one of the best views in the entire resort while you enjoy your meal. For something a bit more relaxed, the fresh-caught seafood dishes served at restaurants closer to the shore pair very well with a glass of Spanish wine.
