What to do in Colonia de Sant Jordi 

Located in the east of Mallorca, Colonia de Sant Jordi is a well-known fishing port and tourist center of this part of the island. Colònia de Sant Jordi began as a fishing village, and its name has its origin in the ancient millenary salt pans that were already used by the Romans to obtain salt. In Colonia de Sant Jordi there are many things to do and places to visit, and endless organized excursions to different tourist attractions.

Enjoy the Beaches: Playa Es Port and Platja des Dolç

Sea lovers will enjoy numerous options in Colonia de Sant Jordi. The beach options are varied, from the quiet beach next to the port, to the sandy beach of Es Trenc, plus the numerous coves that are in the surroundings such as the wonderful Cala Cargol or Cala Carbo.

The main beaches of Colonia Sant Jordi, and the most popular are Playa Es Port and Platja des Dolç. There are many hotels by Playa Es Port and it gets very busy in summer with sunbathers. Being close to the harbour there are plenty of parking spots, bars and restaurants close by and beach amenities such as sun beds, water sports, lifeguard and changing facilities. Platja des Dolç is equally comfortable and is a pretty beach. This beach is further from the centre of Colonia de Sant Jordi, going towards some of the quieter and lesser known coves.

A Boat Trip to Cabrera Island and National Park

Without a doubt, one of the biggest attractions in Colonia de Sant Jordi, is to enjoy a boat trip to the Cabrera National Park, visiting the island, its castle, bathing in its waters and exploring the Blue Cave. All excursions depart from the port, and you can reserve them on the web. If possible, reserve your boat trip to Cabrera Island well in advance as this tour gets booked up during the summer months. The boats depart from Colonia de Sant Jordi several times a day and they are always full. You get around 4-5 hours in Cabrera and you can choose whether you want to explore the island, hike up to the castle and learn about its history, or to head straight for one of Cabrera's exquisite beaches and spend the day sunbathing and swimming in the warm, clear waters. Whichever option you choose you will be accompanied by the best views of your holiday, as Cabrera Island looks like it came straight off a postcard.

Enjoy a Nice Meal at One of the Restaurants in the Port

In Colonia de Sant Jordi there is a wide range of restaurants. On the promenade you will find restaurants and bars where you can enjoy some very good meals of fresh fish every day when the day's catch arrives at the port. For a meal with a view, try Port Blau, for something more local and informal try La Mallorquina and for excellent Mediterranean tapas try 5illes Eat and Drink.

A walk in Colonia de Sant Jordi

For those who like to walk, there is a very pleasant walk that runs along the coast of Colònia de Sant Jordi and is perfectly indicated. It is very easy to follow, and in an hour and a half you can do it, and enjoy the wonderful views of the sea, the coast and even the profile of the island of Cabrera in the background.

Visit the towns around

An interesting activity is to rent a bicycle to go biking around, where there are many options of places to visit. The area around Còlonia de Sant Jordi is a flat land and its roads are little-traveled, which makes it ideal to visit some of the surrounding towns such as Ses Salines, Campos, Sa Ràpita, Ses Covetes, Santanyi and Felanitx.

Visit a market

The Colònia de Sant Jordi market is on Wednesday afternoons. In the surrounding towns you have these markets: in Ses Salines on Thursdays, in Santanyí on Mondays there is a fleemarket and the weekly market is every Wednesday and Saturday. And in Campos, the weekly market on Thursdays and small market on Saturdays.

Learn about the production of salt at the Es Trenc Saltworks

Another interesting visit is the saltworks of Es Trenc to learn the whole process behind this now famous sea salt. Guided tours are made every day, and it is necessary to book in advance. There is also a shop onsite where you can purchase Es Trenc salt to take home. The salt is flavoured with natural ingredients. You can buy a selection of mini salts so you have a range of flavours or you can buy a bigger individual pot. Our favourite salt is the Mediterranean flavour. You could combine a visit to the salt flats with a visit to the famous Es Trenc Beach, but be warned, both are incredibly popular in summer.

Indulge Yourself at the Thermal Spa at Fontsanta Hotel

For those looking to relax, on the outskirts of Colonia de Sant Jordi, we find the thermal spa of Fontsanta, one of the most highly rated in Mallorca, and where the only natural thermal springs of the Balearic Islands are found. A good suggestion is to combine your visit with a delicious meal in the restaurant there.
