Exploring Son Servera…
Enjoy a round of golf
Son Servera is home to the unbelievably scenic Son Servera Golf Club, where you can enjoy a challenging 18-hole course and amazing views out to sea. The friendly clubhouse is the ideal place to relax with refreshments after a tough game and they even host evening entertainment as well.
This beautiful church is an atmospheric place to visit. Sadly unfinished due to a lack of funds, the lack of roof provides a fascinating contrast to the towering ornate walls. It’s a peaceful place to reflect and there’s a colourful weekly market just around the corner if you get hungry.
Take a boat trip
Head to Cala Millor for a wide choice of boat trips. A glass-bottomed boat is a fun way for children to view the rich marine life, while a snorkelling trip to some of the island’s secret coves is an unforgettable experience. Or what could be more romantic than a sunset catamaran cruise?
Caves of Drach
A short 15-minute drive will take you to Porto Cristo’s magnificent Caves of Drach. Explore the spectacularly-lit caverns and take a boat ride across the underground lake to the sounds of live classical music. These amazing caves provide a great family excursion which is likely to provide some lasting memories.
As an inland village, Son Servera does not have its own beach – but it does give you easy access to some of the best beaches on Majorca. A short five-minute taxi ride will deliver you to Cala Millor, with its stunning Blue Flag sandy beach. You’ll find great amenities, from sunbeds and parasols to an attractive seafront promenade packed with cafes, bars and restaurants.
For something a little quieter, try Costa de los Pinos. The shingly shore is the perfect spot for some peaceful sunbathing and the sheltered waters are calmer than many others along this stretch of coast. All of these reasons culminate in Costa de los Pinos being a perfect place to give the kids some uninterrupted swimming lessons. With views of pine forest behind you and the blue waves of the Balearic in front of you, it’s hard to imagine a more scenic spot.
Food is taken seriously in Majorca so you can expect to eat well. From the sticky breakfast buns to the after-dinner liquors flavoured with fragrant local herbs, you can happily spend your days sampling the local delicacies. Seafood is popular on many menus – and no surprise when you’re surrounded by crystal-clear waters. You’ll also find hearty pork dishes, indulgent pasties called cocarrois and delicious fresh breads made with local olive oil. Don’t miss the island nougat, or turron, which uses local almonds and can satisfy even the sweetest tooth!
Son Servera restaurants
While Son Servera itself has just a handful of cosy restaurants, add in its lively neighbours and you’ll have a wide (and mouth-watering) selection to choose from. Tapas bars are a popular choice, serving small punchy dishes that are perfect for sharing. You’ll also find some upmarket fine dining eateries offering up smart Mediterranean cuisine, as well as traditional family-run seafood joints.
