Holidays to Santa Ponsa
Santa Ponsa is located on the south west coast of the holiday island of Majorca around 20 kilometres west of the city of Palma. After the bustling resorts of Magaluf and Palma Nova, Santa Ponsa is the third most popular resort with British tourists on Majorca's south west coast. It has plenty of British bars throughout the resort but not nearly as many as the nearby lively resort of Magalluf.
The golden beach in Santa Ponsa is set in a picturesque bay in the very heart of the resort and is accessible on foot from most accommodation. The bay is surrounded on both sides by apartment and hotel developments. On the northern side above the rocky Platja des Castellot there is an abundance of hotels and apartments including some high rise buildings. On the other side of the bay on the southern side a lot of the development work has fortunately been obscured by pine trees.
The first street back from the beach heading north is called Ramon de Montcada here you will find plenty of bars and restaurants to keep you entertained. On the other side of the bay you will find even more, many with a British theme. Santa Ponsa has a broad appeal the resort is popular with Singles, couples and families alike, there is a good beach, ample bars and restaurants and a range of accommodation to suit all tastes. For an even wilder night than Santa Ponsa can provide such as all-night clubs and big name DJ's you should head to Magaluf which is only 4km away.
Golfers are also attracted to this part of the island, the Santa Ponsa Golf Course on the outskirts of town is one of the islands finest, it has been host to several prestigious competitions including the Majorcan Open. There are many excursions available from the resort but a trip to the islands capital Palma should not be missed, with its beautiful architecture, boutiques and sophisticated café culture.
