Santa Ponsa Beach, South-West Mallorca

Blue Flag beach in popular holiday resort in the south west of Majorca

The beach at Santa Ponsa is a lovely golden sandy beach in the heart of the resort and is backed with shady pine trees for when you need some respite from the heat.

Behind the beach is a nice paved promenade that winds through pine trees through a small area of parkland. Behind the promenade you'll find shops with beach toys and inflatables, bars, cafes and restaurants.

Every year, the beach plays host to one of the areas biggest festivals - the Rei en Jaume which celebrates the successful landing of King Jaime I in 1229 and his subsequent conquering of the Moors.

Setting & Location

The hills that surround the bay and beach are covered in hotels and holiday apartments, so if you are staying in resort, it is unlikely it will take you very long to walk to the beach.

Free parking is available on the streets behind the beach, and there is a regular bus service from the other close-by resorts and Palma.

Water Safety & Clarity

The sea is clear and shallow and thanks to its sheltered position in the bay, it's nice and calm. You can hire sunloungers and parasols, there are toilets and showers, and there is a high presence of life guards on duty. Disabled access is good.

Beach Quality

The beach is 1.3 km long and 100 metres deep and sandy, so even in the peak summer months, you should be able to find a space for your towels.
