Santa Ponsa Holidays

Show on Map

A 10-minute drive from Magalluf, lively Santa Ponsa has been a popular destination since the 1950s.

A brilliant beach duo

Santa Ponsa’s main Blue Flag beach is a stunner. Its silky sands are separated from the nearby pine woods by a promenade where you’ll find sunbeds, parasols, jet skis and pedalos. The low-key Little Beach by the marina is popular with families and has a playground opposite for little ones.

Spot the super-yachts

Port Adriano, a newly built deep-water harbour right next to Santa Ponsa, has started to attract the super-yachts of the rich and famous. Now’s the time to visit for yourself for a touch of glamour and a taste of the high life.

Daytrip to Palma

Just 20 minutes by car, a day spent visiting the island’s cosmopolitan capital is well worth it. You can explore La Seu, Palma’s imposing Gothic cathedral, wander narrow cobbled streets and visit the hilltop castle for stunning views of the harbour and city. If shopping and people-watching is more your bag, head to the famous tree-lined Passeig des Borne and its surrounding streets for designer delights.

Insider Tip

If you time it right, you could be in Santa Ponsa for the island’s biggest festival, which takes place during the first two weeks of September. The Fiesta Rey En Jaume involves street parades, concerts, beach parties, medieval market stalls and a re-enactment of the battle that ended Moorish rule in 1229. It culminates in a huge fireworks display and a real party atmosphere – if you can make it to Santa Ponsa in September, this is not to be missed.

Best beaches

The long, white-sand, Blue Flag beach Playa Santa Ponsa is a sun-seeker’s dream. You can laze on a lounger, sip an iced drink in a cafe on the promenade, try a new watersport on the turquoise waters or get out on the sea by booking a boat trip. For an alternative head to the quiet sandy cove Little Beach, where the welcoming waters are super-shallow for a long way out and the kids’ playground opposite keeps the young ones entertained.

Top sights

Known for their incredible natural beauty, Santa Ponsa’s beaches are what makes the area such an unforgettable place to visit. The main beach has plenty of water sport activities, so along with horse riding and jungle circuits you can try something new every day. For trips out, head to Majorca’s sophisticated capital Palma, or enjoy a swashbuckling dinner show for all the family at the nearby Pirates Adventure Show.

Out and about

With its amazing beaches, watersports are naturally a focus in Santa Ponsa but there are plenty of other things to do too. You could try your hand at horse riding, play a few sets of tennis, play golf on one of the three large golf courses or learn to scuba dive at ZOEA scuba diving centre. If you fancy yourself as a bit of a Tarzan head to Jungle Parc, a nine-hectare forest in Santa Ponsa with acrobatic tree circuits suitable for adults and kids, featuring bridges, ropes, vines and zip wires.

Eating and drinking

As you might expect Santa Ponsa caters for an international crowd, so there are dozens of restaurants to choose from in the centre or by the beach. Stroll to the marina to take your pick from any of the waterfront restaurants serving freshly caught seafood including swordfish steaks and paella.


Seek out special souvenirs in the Carrer Ramon de Montcada and its surrounding streets. In the unusual boutiques and clothes shops you’ll find stylish leather bags, beachwear, cut-price perfumes and practical Majorcan straw baskets. In the summer, stroll through the crafts market in the balmy evenings, soaking up the atmosphere as you’re entertained by street performers.


Discover a unique mix of tapas bars and Irish pubs in Santa Ponsa. Thanks to its popularity with Irish visitors over the years and the Spanish residents, who have built villas in the surrounding hilly countryside, Santa Ponsa offers Spanish craic like nowhere else! There’s live music galore, late-night bars such as Diva and Gala serving up classy cocktails and clubs around the main strip on Calle Ramon de Montcada.
