This popular resort, on the south west coast of Majorca, offers everything you could want from a break in the sun...
Pine trees and hills frame the picture beautifully, while there is plenty to see and do in the local area if you want your Santa Ponsa holidays a bit more action packed. Just 15 minutes from the buzzing nightlife of Magaluf, and a little over 25 minutes from the island's capital Palma, the resort is within easy reach of some of Majorca's best cultural highlights and party spots. And within Santa Ponsa, you can head to the golf course, check out the water sports, book a game of tennis, or take the opportunity to scuba dive in the Mediterranean Sea.
You don't have to try hard to have fun during holidays in Santa Ponsa, though. Simply carry your essential items to the pool or the beach, stake your place, and let the heat of the sun ease your pre-holiday stresses before enjoying the Spanish hospitality in the resort's friendly eateries and bars.
Flights take two to three hours from UK airports and arrive into Palma Airport (PMI). Most transfers will deliver you to your chosen accommodation in less than an hour, though hiring a car at the airport is a great idea if you plan to explore the Balearic Island. Driving is easy on this good network of roads and there is a lot to see both in the countryside and on the coast around Santa Ponsa.
From spring to autumn Santa Ponsa bakes in sunshine and offers a perfect backdrop for relaxing holidays...

In Santa Ponsa and nearby Palma you can take a bite out of the cultural delicacies of Majorca at these popular events...
Angel Sunday; April/May: If you're in Santa Ponsa just after Easter head to nearby Palma to see “giants” making their way to the historic Bellver Castle. It's a charming spectacle and great fun for families.
Nit de Foc (Night of Fire); June: This is one of the biggest nights of the year in Palma and definitely worth the short trek to the city. Stand well back as bonfires and fireworks light the streets and skies around the lake and “demons” with fireworks work the crowds.
Rey Jaime (or Rei en Jaume) Fiesta; September: See “King James” land in Majorca to reclaim the island from the Moors - a 13th century event that is celebrated each year in his landing place of Santa Ponsa. Highlights include music, parades and a fireworks display.
How will you spend your time in Santa Ponsa? Here are a few ideas...
Babies and toddlers: The small sandy cove known as Little Beach is away from the main crowds and perfect for youngsters who will love splashing around in the warm shallows.
Active types: A boat trip will whisk you away to the gorgeous island of Illa del Toro, where some of the most amazing underwater sights in Majorca await visiting scuba divers.
Nightlife: The large number of Irish pubs in Santa Ponsa make for a lively, but not exactly wild, night out, which is just how most people like it. If you want full-on party action, meanwhile, nearby Magaluf is the place to be.
