The Mallorca/Majorca region
Mallorca is the largest of the Balearic Islands and as such caters for almost everybody needs. Nova Santa Ponsa lies in the South West corner of the island and enjoys some of the best weather on the island.
Magaluf which is about a 10 minute drive away is essentially a lively family resort with Aqua Parks (2) , Go-Karts, An Ocean Park, Pirates Theatre, and a Mini Golf course. There are also a huge variety of restaurants, bars, nightclubs, and shops to suit all tastes and budgets. Magaluf has a beautiful wide and long beach of fine sand which does tend to get very busy during the high season.
Santa Ponca which is about 5 minutes drive away in the opposite direction is a much more leisurely town also with a very fine large beach, many restaurants, bars and shops. A more upmarket town than Magaluf but still plenty to do and see.
This whole area also has many lovely small coves and bays with delightful small inexpensive beach restaurants serving wonderful fresh fish plus many other tasty Mallorcain dishes.
The climate in this south western part of the island is lovely through out the year with warm summers and mild winters....Between May and October it is virtually sunshine all the way with very little rain. In July and August it can be very humid and at night it is very sticky. If you come to Santa Ponsa over the Winter months you will need to bring a jumper and/or coat for the evenings because it does go cooler but there will almost certainly be some stage each day when you can still enjoy the sun.
The very popular holiday resort of Santa Ponsa, along with its more infamous neighbours Palma Nova and Magaluf, are all part of the municipal district of Calvia on the south west coast of Majorca approximately 20km, or 12 miles west of the capital Palma.
The apartment is located in an area know as Nova Santa Ponsa which is just between Santa Ponsa main town and El Torro/Port Adriano with its own community inc shops, restaurants, bars, marina and small sandy beach.
The main beach of Santa Ponsa is 5 mins away and is beautiful large sandy beach, popular with tourists and locals alike.
If you wish to escape from the crowds, there is a smaller secondary beach set in its own sheltered cove about 15 minutes walk away which can be reached from the Avda. Rei Jaume I. Both beaches have the usual facilities expected of a modern resort, along with a good variety of water sports equipment available for hire. Swimming in the bay is generally quite safe with no strong currents, and fairly shallow waters, however, care must always be exerted when the flag system is in operation.
Regular boat trips along the south west coast operate from both the main beach and marina at Santa Ponsa, and at around £10 per head represent excellent value for money.
Santa Ponsa has a wide selection of cafes, bars and restaurants and excellent facilities for visitors on self catering arrangements. In response to the strong UK and Irish influences in the town, many supermarkets now also stock readily recognisable UK branded goods.
There are a vast array of places to visit, activities including some of the best golf courses in Europe and night-life to suit all ages and tastes.Santa Ponsa is a great resort and you will not be disappointed. Whilst it is 'buzzing' from May to mid-October each year, it is a lot quieter in the Winter months but for those of you who want to enjoy some sun and have a relaxing and peaceful Winter break, then Santa Ponsa is for you. There are bars, cafes and restaurants open so you will have somewhere to go during the day and at night.

Spain is well know for its fiestas and The September Fiesta, which marks the landing of James I and his subsequent conquering of the island from the Moors in September (10th) 1229, is the biggest Fiesta of the year in Santa Ponsa. It is a 10-day long celebration - which entails a lot of eating and drinking. The culmination of the Fiesta is on the Saturday closest to 10th September each year with the parade from the cross at the Marina through the town to the main beach. It normally starts at 5.30 pm and ends with a mock battle between the Moors and Christians on the main beach (the Christians always win!!!). That night - until the early hours, there is normally a rock concert on the main beach. The Fiesta comes to an end with a monumental firework display on the main beach on the Sunday.
