Santa Ponsa, also known as Santa Ponça, is a holiday resort situated in a beautiful sheltered cove in the south-west of Mallorca. Popular with the British for more than 40 years, it’s surprising that it has managed to avoid the high rises found in some of the resorts around Mallorca’s coastline. The bay boasts a stunning mountain backdrop with more tastefully constructed villas and apartment complexes littering the area.
Its large blue flag beach is the main attraction here, a wide, long stretch of silky soft white sand lined by a lively promenade. Santa Ponsa is a family-friendly resort but welcomes a whole host of age groups due to being well equipped with restaurants, bars, shops and all sorts of activities for holidaymakers. Over the years, expats have been drawn to the area which means that, unlike many other resorts on the island, you will find some of the restaurants and bars stay open all 12 months of the year.
The town has its very own private marina, Club Nautico Santa Ponsa sitting within a natural cove known as “Sa Caleta” which houses boats up to 20 metres long. Just up the road, you will find the more energetic and prestigious Port Adriano marina which accommodates the super yachts of the rich and famous and is renowned for its jam-packed calendar of events throughout the summer months.
