resorts, Santa Ponsa, Mallorca
Santa Ponsa, Spain

Santa Ponsa is where you’ll find the ‘celtic fringe’ of Majorca! It’s extremely popular with both Scottish and Irish holidaymakers and that’s reflected in the number of bars dedicated to the ‘craic’.

It’s a pretty resort that has always been popular with British tourists who took the place under their wing in the 70’s and helped it grow into the family resort that it is now. By day enjoy the soft golden sands and the relaxed outdoor life around the promenade, then by night get your gald rags on and hit the hot spots!

Beach:

A sweep of golden sand is backed by a promenade making it safe for the kids to run about It also gives easy access to the cafe bars for lunch in the sun, or the nearby supermarkets if you want to DIY.
The beach is well serviced with sunbeds, pedaloes, boat trips and watersports and a red cross station is manned between 10am and 18.00pm.
At high noon, when the heat may be too much for some, the palm trees lining the promenade offer some welcome shade...just perfect for snooze!

Nightlife:

The nightlife is fairly unique in Santa Ponsa as it has the highest density of Irish and Scottish bars on the island...so there’s plenty of ‘craic’ to be had! It’s often described as ‘buzzing’ but you can find quieter places where you can relax over a beer. If you want a great place to sit and people watch then head for the ‘Square’ which has live music in the summer months and good value restaurants.
Families are well catered for as many of the bars have entertainment for all ages and the restaurants often have children’s menus which helps keep the little ‘uns happy.

Who goes there:

Very popular with families and older couples and of course it’s great if you enjoy a bit o’ the Irish ‘craic’ whith a good pint of Guiness.

Accommodation:

There are many hotels and apartment complexes so you won’t be struggling to find something to fit the budget. Also there's a good number of private rentals which are often owned by ex-pats from the UK.

What to do:

  • The Dolphin Show at the nearby Marineland is very popular with all ages and is within easy travelling distance.
  • In the next resort along, lively Magaluf, are two cracking water parks that offer thrills and spills to delight the young at heart. Choose from Aqualand: www.aqualand.es where you can let the kids loose or www.westernpark.com where ‘The Beast’ will leave you breathless! If you’re an adrenaline junkie do both! 
  • Visit the House of Katmandu, Magaluf’s latest attraction which gives more than a passing nod to Raiders of the Lost Arc type adventure: http://www.houseofkatmandu.com/
    For an evening to remember why not take in the famous Pirates Show which has a life-sized ship as a backdrop. This show has been performed for years and has wonderful reviews year on year. Make sure you book the right show if you’re taking the kids though as they also do an ‘adult only’ performance...oh Matron!!
  • Tennis and bowling fans can enjoy a spot of their favourite activity in the resort as there’s both a bowling alley and a tennis club with 8 courts.

Fiesta:

2nd September celebrates the landing of King Jaime at Santa Ponsa in 1229 to rid the island of 300 yrs of domination by invading Moors. A medieval atmosphere, mock battles and ‘ye olde drinking contests’ (OK I made that last one up) can be enjoyed.
