Costa de los Pinos, which belongs to the municipality of Capdepera, is located on the eastern tip of the island of Mallorca, on a mountainous slope that protects it from the north wind. We could say that more than a tourist center it is a residential area of luxury houses, with a small shopping center of a couple of shops and restaurants, an emblematic hotel, an 18-hole golf course and also enjoys an unbeatable landscape. However there are many things to do and places to visit, and endless organized excursions to different tourist attractions.
