Holidays to Santa Ponsa are all about soaking up the warm, Majorcan sun on the resort’s incredible beaches. Take to the waters and feel the sea breeze in your hair as you try a spot of wind surfing or simply relax on a sun lounger and make the most of doing nothing. The kids will love the different days out that you can enjoy in the area, such as Marineland aquarium or all the amazing slides at Western Park waterpark. In the evenings, why not indulge in a delicious meal along the resort’s picturesque seafront? Or if you fancy it, there are plenty of bars and clubs on Calle Ramon de Montcada, to see you through until the sun comes up.

The beaches are one of the resort’s biggest draws. The main beach, Playa Santa Ponsa, has all the amenities and facilities to make sure you never have to wander far once you set yourself up for your beach day, such as sun beds, umbrellas, lifeguards and plenty of cafés and shops along the boardwalk. Lined with lush, green palm trees, curving perfectly around the beautiful turquoise waters, it’s ideal for families and couples alike. Soak up the sun on the powdery-white sand or try out one of the many water sports available to you, such as wind surfing or pedal boats. If you’re looking for something a bit more peaceful, then head to the smaller and quieter Little Beach at the far end of the resort; an absolute hidden gem.

There are plenty of things to do for families in Santa Ponsa. Aside from spending quality time together on the beaches, there are some great days out to enjoy too. Marineland is just ten minutes away on the bus and is a fantastic aquarium that the whole family will love, with a huge variety of marine life and different species of reptiles to see and learn about. Then there’s also Western Park, which is an action-packed Wild West-themed waterpark with adrenaline-pumping thrills, as well as rides and slides for all ages. There’s a wave pool, a lazy river, plus playgrounds and lots of fun to be had for the little ones. You’ll no doubt build up an appetite after all that fun, so enjoy a bite to eat while you’re there too.

Santa Ponsa doesn’t just attract families and beach lovers to its shores. If you’re big into your golf, then you’ll love it here, as it’s home to no less than three championship golf courses; two of which are 18-hole. Santa Ponsa 1 Golf Course has world-class facilities and a choice of hotels on its doorstep. It’s also hosted the Balearic Open, so you know teeing off here will be something special. Mountain biking and horse riding are two other popular activities in the area, thanks to the stunning scenery all around. They’re both a great way to see the island if you want to try something different. The nightlife is worth a mention too, as although quieter than its neighbour, Magaluf, you’ll still find a variety of pubs, bars and restaurants to experience when the sun goes down. Calle Ramon de Montcada is the area to be for the best night out.
