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 sun beds, 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.
Port Adriano, a newly-built deep-water harbour right next to Santa Ponsa, has really started to attract the gleaming, pearlescent white super-yachts of the rich and famous. Now’s the time to pay this marina hangout a visit for a touch of glamour and a taste of the high life.
The island’s cosmopolitan capital’s well worth exploring. Check out La Seu, Palma’s imposing Gothic cathedral, wander narrow cobbled streets and visit the hilltop castle for stunning views of the harbour. If shopping is more your bag, head to the famous tree-lined Passeig des Born and its surrounding streets for designer delights.
