With a Blue Flag beach, kids' menus and easy daytrips, holidays to Sa Coma are geared to families. And the Brit ex-pats here will have you feeling right at home.
Come to Sa Coma for the beach scene, and you’ll want to stay for the chilled atmosphere and fun attractions. A Cruise & Stay holiday in this Majorcan resort is a just the tonic.
Modernity meets nature
Sa Coma is situated on Majorca’s eastern coast, just south of the popular resort of Cala Millor. Only a 25-minute drive from the historic town of Manacor, this resort was developed in the 1980s. Geared towards tourists, Sa Coma is particularly well suited to families starting or ending a cruise. Featuring flashy high-rises and slick hotels, Sa Coma maintains a peaceful vibe – it helps that there’s a large area of waterside woodland on its doorstep.
Laze on a Blue Flag beach
The central beach at Sa Coma is pristine in every sense of the word. Rolling out neatly along a shallow bay, this stretch of golden sand is soft, clean and fairly deep, meaning there’s plenty of room for sunbathing, paddling and sandcastle-building. Drinks and snacks can be picked up at nearby cafés and shops, and if you can pull yourself out of bed early in the morning, the beach is also an excellent place to watch the sunrise.
When you’re done soaking up the sun on Sa Coma Beach, head into town to explore the local amusements and attractions. Just off the main road, you’ll find the Safari Zoo, which is unmissable for animal lovers of all ages. You can also venture into the Punta de n’Amer nature reserve, where you can explore a 17th-century castle. Further north in neighbouring Cala Millor, you’ll find a go-karting track, while in Porto Cristo you can explore the stunning Dragon Caves.
Manacor and beyond
Manacor is the ideal destination for a day trip out of Sa Coma. The second largest city on this Balearic Island, it boasts a striking church and plenty of shops, restaurants and bars. If you really want to experience urban Majorca, though, you’ll continue west to the capital Palma. Just over an hour from Sa Coma by car, this lovely city is the home of several historic buildings, including a Gothic cathedral and a Medieval castle.
