The Tramunatana Mountain area begins in this part of the island and a great option to visit it is on the Soller and La Calobra excursion combining bus, boat, train and tram.

If you are more of a beach-lover, Santa Ponsa has a gorgeous white sandy beach stretching than a kilometre long and 100m wide where you can soak up the sun and relax. The beach has all the facilities you will need such as showers, changing room, sunbeds, lifeguard, water sports, parasailing, etc. Santa Ponsa beach is frequented by tourists and residents alike. At the right hand side of the beach is the jetty for boats. While at the beach you shouldn’t miss out on taking part in a water activity such as a short glass bottom boat to Malgrats Island for snorkelling or the spectacular 5-hour boat trip to Dragonera Island on which you will see the beautiful Santa Ponsa coastline, have the opportunity for swimming and snorkelling and have time to explore Dragonera Island.

A stroll to Port Adriano

A beautiful stroll in Santa Ponsa is to the Club Nautico, which was inaugurated in 1975. There's a traditional nautical feel and it's an experience to see the fishing boats and yachts. Though if we wish to see grander yachts then we must head to Port Adriano where the most exclusive yachts are anchored. It is a nice place to dine at one of the seafront restaurants too and go shopping at designer stores in the exclusive commercial centre.
