Holidays to Colonia Sant Jordi offer a taste of traditional Majorca. On an island famous for its tourist hotspots, the resort is a hidden gem off the beaten path. Nature lovers, watersports enthusiasts and foodies will love this traditional fishing village, which is nestled on Majorca’s idyllic south-east coast.
Established in the 1800s as a fishing and agricultural colony, Colonia Sant Jordi’s rich history dates back to the Bronze Age. The Romans were big fans of the region’s salt, which is still produced today. In fact, there’s a summer festival dedicated to it.
The area – also known as Port de Campos – is surrounded by stunning beaches and two National Parks. Stay here and you’ll be a stone’s throw from Es Trenc and Ets Estanys, two of Majorca’s most popular sweeps of sand. There are also lots of little coves perfect for escaping the crowds.
