With the focus on beautiful beaches and laid-back vibes, Sa Coma shopping centre is low key, but you’ll certainly find lots of places to get all your holiday essentials, and a few extras too. There is a weekly market as well, so you’ll have a chance to sample some of Majorca’s excellent local produce. Take a look at our guide about where to get your fix of retail therapy while you’re staying in Sa Coma.
Sa Coma Shopping
In Sa Coma shopping centre itself you’ll find places selling beach goods such as inflatables, sunglasses, and beach mats so you’ve got everything you need to enjoy the family-friendly sands. These shops also carry a limited range of souvenirs to take home. There are a couple of supermarkets in town, ideal for popping in to grab some goodies on the way to the beach. Slightly out of town is a hypermarket, which has everything from sun loungers to fresh seafood. If you’re Self Catering you’ll be able to stock up here, and despite being a hypermarket you’ll find plenty of local produce like Sóller oranges and cured meats to enjoy.
For a larger choice of shops, it’s worth heading to Cala Millor, just along the coast. Here you’ll find clothes shops, toy shops and a Majorica pearls outlet, as well as plenty of places selling souvenirs. Cala Millor is just 10 minutes away by car, 15 minutes by bus, and in summer you can even take the land train.
In high season shops are open from around 9.30am until late evening, and the Carrefour hypermarket is open all year round from 9am-11pm Monday to Saturday and 10am-10pm on Sundays.
Sa Coma Market
Friday morning brings the chance to experience a slice of Majorcan life in nearby Son Servera. This rural town is home to the biggest market in the area and has an abundance of goods. Alongside local food, you’ll find leather handbags, lace tablecloths, and perhaps some exquisite basket work from nearby Arta. The market is open from around 8am until 1pm and getting here is easy.
All the towns in the region put on a market bus, which is an interesting way to travel and plunges you in to day-to-day life with the locals. These buses will get crowded though, so some people find a taxi is a more comfortable option. The journey by road takes around 10 minutes, or you could walk which takes just over an hour.
A dedicated Sa Coma market is held every Wednesday morning during the summer months on Avenida las Palmeras, near the tourist information centre. It’s a good place to get some delicious local fruit and veg, and to pick up more unusual crafts and pottery as a souvenir. You’ll also find a few stalls selling clothes and household goods.
If you’re hoping to buy some of Majorca’s famous leather during your stay, an excursion to Inca is worthwhile. The town is home to the famous Camper brand of shoes, as well as numerous leather outlets. The market here is one of the biggest in Majorca and is held every Thursday morning. It takes about an hour in the car, or an hour and a half by bus.
Sa Coma Souvenirs
Sa Coma has a couple of shops selling souvenirs aimed at the tourist market, so if you’re hoping to find a cheery fridge magnet or tea towel as a memento you’re covered. In high season you may find some local goods such as pottery or glass too.
More authentic souvenirs can be found at Sa Coma Market. Perhaps you fancy some sobrassada, a spicy spreadable sausage, or the regional speciality sausage, botiffarons. If you’re looking for a non-foodie treat, then the linen wear is charming. Colourful Majorcan pottery is always a beautiful memento, or you may find some Siruells, cute clay whistles that are popular with children (but maybe not so popular with their parents). Leather bags and shoes can also be bought here, and if you haggle well enough you may get a real bargain.
Another unlikely option for souvenir shopping is the hypermarket. Here you’ll be able to pick up local wines or liqueurs such as Herbes or Sabor de Majorca, as well as some beauty products such as soaps or body lotions enriched with Majorcan almond oil.
However you like to shop, whether you fancy a trip out to one of the bigger towns or are happy saving your shopping spree for the Sa Coma market, you’ll find all your essentials are close at hand.
