Surely one of Majorca’s most beautiful and picturesque places to stay, the small village Estellencs is a must for anyone wishing to sample a taste of the Majorca of old. Situated on the north-west coast of the island, roughly 25 miles away from the island’s capital city Palma, Estellencs sits at the foot of the Tramuntana mountain range, facing the sea. The car-free, stone streets wind lazily down to the blissfully calm beach below, where time seems to stands still, and simply being there can bring a sense of instant relaxation.
The architecture of Estellencs is classically Mediterranean, with red tiled roofs and fountains in the streets. Extra character is added by the occasional ruined tower or sea defence post, which date back to the middle ages, when Estellencs was a favourite spot for pirate activity. There is small port at the bottom of the village, Cala Estallencs, where the water is crystal clear, and the traditional fishing boats can be seen going in and out, further reflecting the traditional way of life in Majorca.
With a handful of local bars and restaurants, a stay in Estellencs would be perfect for those seeking a quiet and relaxing stay in Majorca, however there is still the option of a night out available – there are plenty of larger, more established resorts within a reasonable travel distance. The most lively place to enjoy an evening in Estellencs itself is the bar Sa Tanca, in the lower part of the village, which serves as a meeting place for locals and tourists alike to come together and enjoy some local wine or hierbas (Majorcan herb liqueur).
The village is also well known as a starting point for dozens of beautiful walks and treks around the area, with plenty of established routes allowing easy exploration of the local mountains. There are seaside strolls to enjoy, as well as steep climbs for the more energetic, many of which lead to great viewpoints from which to take in the sheer beauty of this unspoilt corner of Majorca.
