THE SOUTH OF

Majorca

The island of Majorca is a truly multifaceted place. The whole length and breadth of its surface is home to such a huge variety hidden landscapes, it’s sometimes hard to believe they all form part of the same island. The colour of the water is the most surprising, as it’s different in every part of the island – but always incredibly special.

Colonia de Sant Jordi acts as an excellent base for exploring the southern face of Majorca, with its characteristic sandy beaches, crystal clear waters, little villages and charming fishing ports. As for the colour of the water in southern Majorca… it will leave you speechless. All you need to know is that many refer to this area as the “Caribbean” part of Majorca.

Here are some of our recommendations for exploring this region:

Portocolom – Santanyí – Mondragón Natural Park – Cala d’Or – S’Alqueria Vella – Cala Figuera – Sant Salvador – Castillo de Santueri.
