Tucked away an hour from the island’s capital, Sa Coma is the perfect Majorcan family holiday. It may not have the bustle of Palma or the wild reputation of Magaluf, but Sa Coma has a charm that keeps people coming back. Nestled on the coast, the town boasts the beautiful sandy beaches and tropical palm trees that make for a simply gorgeous holiday. For such a small town, Sa Coma really does have something for everyone.
Holidays in Sa Coma are all about relaxation. After a long day of unwinding on the beach or strolling down the promenade, there’s no better place for a siesta. The town isn’t one for crazy nightlife, and it’s a charming destination to visit if you need a little recharge. Especially loved by Brits, the town has a sizeable expatriate population, meaning a friendly wel-come for all who arrive.
Get a little glimpse of history with a visit to S’illot – a coastal town that still has a fully operational boatyard. Whilst many fishing towns have switched their focus to tourism, here you can still see the fishermen bringing in the catch of the day before enjoying a fresh seafood supper. Delicious.
The original east Majorcan beach resort, Porto Cristo is sometimes overlooked for its newer, flashier neighbours. Don’t be deceived, though this small town packs a historic punch. From being the only town on the island to becoming a large part of the Spanish Civil War, to the fascinating story of how it got its name, it is unique amongst neighbouring resorts.
For those looking for a little more nightlife, the nearby Cala Millor comes alive when the sun goes down. If you want to experience what the Spanish do so well, a night here is a must. From cobbled terraces to neon nightclubs, this resort is the perfect way to experi-ence Spanish nightlife without committing to a week in Magaluf.
Exploring Sa Coma…
Punta de N’Amer
Become one with nature at Punta de N’Amer, a 200-hectare nature reserve home to a three hundred year old watchtower. Built in the 17th century, the view from the tower shows you just what the area used to be like. You can even grab a drink next to the castle.
If you need a break from the beach, this 54-hole mini-golf complex will appeal to all the fami-ly. The grounds have three different courses to play as well as a river for boat rides. Forget about sand for a while and enjoy these fun-filled landscaped gardens instead.
Sa Coma promenade
Overlooking Sa Coma’s beach is the promenade - a beautiful traffic-free zone linking Sa Coma with its coastal neighbours. Perfect for a stroll at any time of the day, there’s plenty of choice of bars and restaurants. Here you’ll find a mix of traditional Spanish food and a little taste of home.
Cuevas del Drach
People have been coming from miles around to see the Cuevas del Drach since the nineteenth century. Translating to the Caves of the Dragon, it’s sure to be a brilliant experience. Inside you’ll find turquoise lakes, ancient stalactites and even underground concerts. A boat trip through the caves will really seal the deal.
Auto Safari Zoo
Just ten minutes from Sa Coma is a little taste of Africa. Auto Safari Zoo has a huge selection of animals, including its very own monkey enclosure. No cars are necessary to visit the zoo, with a free bus leaving from Sa Coma and a safari train to take you through the park.
Sa Coma beach
It’s easy to see why this is a Blue Flag beach. From its white sand to its clear sea, there’s not much more you can ask for here. The sea is shallow enough for young swim-mers, and it’s close by to a huge selection of bars and restaurants. If you look closely enough, you might even spot a dolphin!
For something with a bit of an edge, visit Cala Romantica. This beach gives you both beach and cliff views in one. Although it can get a little windy, which is why it’s the ideal beach for anyone interested in diving or water sports.
Sa Coma restaurants
A huge selection of traditional Spanish food is available in Sa Coma, and it is easy to come by tapas in the bars. Its location to the coast means that seafood is really popular. British cuisine is also easy to find in Sa Coma, with many British expats owning their own businesses. As well as British pubs and restaurants, you will find supermarkets stocked with your good-old home essen-tials.
If you’re looking to try traditional Majorcan cuisine, the country is rich in home-grown fruit and vegetables. Try the Majorcan take on paella, fideuà, which switches rice for noo-dles. The island is particularly known for its amazing desserts, so make sure you don’t fill up on the moreish tapas!
Sa Coma holidays are ideal for the whole family, from sunbathing on the beach to water sports, and burgers to tapas. Perfect for pedestrians, Sa Coma is an excellent base to explore Ma-jorca’s eastern coastline by foot. Palma is only an hour away, making day trips and airport transfers as stress-free as the rest of your holiday.
