Despite its compact size, this little town has plenty to shout about. Boasting no less than three beaches on top of its infectious atmosphere and stunning surroundings, holidays to Paguera present the ideal beach getaway.
Whether you’re looking for a coastal resort to take the kids to, or you’re craving a dose of sunshine on your next break, Paguera doesn’t disappoint. Although this small town on Majorca’s south-west coast began life as a traditional fishing village, it now combines old-world charm with an array of attractions.
Its pedestrian promenade is lined with shops, bars and restaurants while its three beaches offer up everything from great water sports, swimming spots and fresh seafood restaurants. Better yet, the capital city of Palma is just down the road – perfect if you’re seeking a jam-packed day trip.
This iconic capital city is just 18 km away from the resort itself, so you’re never too far away from great shopping, bars and restaurants.
Take a stroll around Palma and you’ll soon fall in love with its excellent architecture and grand gothic cathedrals. While the old town makes for a great setting to linger with a drink and soak up the sunshine, the more modern side to the city gives you plenty in the way of designer shopping and chic cocktail places.
A favourite holiday spot for many, Magaluf is known for its nightlife as much as it is known for its bustling beaches. The atmosphere is much livelier in this part of Majorca, so you’ll find every kind of attraction going. Head out to one of the excellent water parks, or make the most of Magaluf’s vibrant promenade. By night, the resort’s main strip boasts neon-lit bars and iconic super clubs.
Thanks to its excellent family attractions, Palma Nova makes for a must-visit. Aside from its beach, you’ll also find Golf Fantasia, an extravagant mini golf course that will unleash competition in all members of the family. Up the road, you’ll find a go-karting track guaranteed to keep the kids happy.
While many flock to Paguera’s beach, those seeking some shelter from the sunshine might like to make the most of the resort’s shopping opportunities. El Bulevar, the street that leads up from the beach, is a hub of retail experiences – from supermarkets to souvenir shops and sophisticated boutiques. An ideal spot to treat yourself to a few souvenirs, you’re likely to stumble across a gem here, whether that means hand-crafted jewellery or local leather goods. Hunting for great designer clothing? Head to the Boulevard de Pageura. For an authentic experience, visit the market at nearby Andratx, where you’ll find just about everything if you look hard enough.
Play a game of tennis
There are many activities to be found in Paguera, and tennis is just one of them. You’ll undoubtedly find tennis courts dotted around the resort but nothing compares to Paguera’s exclusive Tennis Academy of Majorca. There are year-round courses held in the academy, notable for training professionals like Steffi Graf and Boris Becker. Fancy something a little more laid-back? Visit the courts for a quick game – you’ll find them just a few minutes away from the beach.
Enjoy its nightlife
While Paguera’s evening antics don’t compare to that of its raucous neighbour Magaluf, there’s still plenty to keep you occupied when the sun goes down. Restaurants in the resort offer a great atmosphere, as well as a good place to chill out in the evenings. As the night rolls on, tourists and locals tend to head for the promenade. Here, you’ll find everything from karaoke nights to cocktail bars and live music hotspots.
