resorts, Colonia Sant Jordi, Mallorca
Colonia Sant Jordi, Spain

A very quiet, simple resort which is popular with whose that enjoy hiring a car and exploring. Situated on a beautiful stretch of coastline it has the advantage of being within easy driving distance of some of the most stunning beaches on Mallorca.

This little resort is perfect for a laid back holiday and has become a firm favourite with many who prefer less commercialism in their holiday environment. In the evening you can dine in the atmospheric marina area with its scattering of restaurants then enjoy a night cap at one of the local bars. The sunshine hours are all about boat trips, sunbathing and swimming at the remarkable beaches along this coast.

Beach:

The resort beach is quite small but has good facilities should you want to stay put and it’s flanked by a pretty marina and small fishing harbour. What attracts many holidaymakers to Colonia Sant Jordi are the fabulously natural beaches of Es Trenc, Sa Rapita and Es Dolc. These three are considered to be the best on the island and their white sands and turquoise waters backed by pine forests are quite spectacular. They'll have you wondering if you’d landed in the Caribbean. Es Dolc is within walking distance whilst the other two can be reached by car.

Nightlife:

Mainly centred around the small number of restaurants in the charming Marina area where you can sit and people watch over a chilled bottle of wine. A few local bars are scattered throughout its streets but it’s a far cry from the usual type of bustling resort...and all the more charming for it!

Who goes there:

Mainly independent travellers looking for a quiet holiday away from mass tourism.

Accommodation:

Limited, as you would expect in a small resort, but it covers the range of 3* and budget hotels and apartments. A small choice of private villas and apartments is also available.

What to do:

  • Visit the weekly market held in the resort each Wednesday.
  • Enjoy a trip to the largest Botanical garden in Europe which also has the largest navigated lake on the island - now we bet that’s a surprise for you! Home to a collection of over 1000 species of plant it is well known for its 300 yr old cactus that hails from Arizona. www.botanicactus.com
  • Hire  car and explore the coast and inland towns and villages.

Fiestas:

The main fiesta, celebrating the towns Saints day, is held on the first Sunday in August when there is a service in the local church. However you will find that the festivities start on Friday evening and continues throughout the weekend. Expect live music, sporting events and fireworks!

Psst! At 9.30 each morning a boat departs from the small harbour and goes to the tiny island of Cabrera, or Goat Island which now a National Park but was previously a prisoner of war camp in Napoleonic times.
