What to do







Tourist information







Cala Millor

The coastal district of Cala Millor is shared between the municipalities of Sant Llorenç des Cardassar and Son Servera. Located in the north-west of the island of Mallorca, it is the largest holiday resort in our area.

Scenery and Nature. Cala Millor’s main attraction is its extensive beach of fine sand with crystalline waters. It is almost two kilometres long with a seafront promenade that runs along its whole length. Sun –lots of sun–, sand, sea and protected marine flora are the main natural resources that identify Cala Millor. Before the tourist boom of the 1960s, Cala Millor was a long beach with a few small houses, sand dunes and the typical scrub vegetation with pine and tamarind trees, brambles, wild olive trees, junipers, thistles and the typical fauna of the eastern coasts of Mallorca.

Quality Accommodation. The first pioneering hotels were built in the 1960s in what the tourist boom would turn into a major holiday resort with a wide range of quality accommodation. The majority of hotels and apartments are on the seafront.

Cala Millor offers a wide range accommodation and complementary services all designed to give our visitors the best possible holidays.

That’s why our visitors come back year after year. They love to walk along the beach, go horse riding, cycling or walking in the nearby countryside, take advantage of the excellent sports facilities, go shopping near the sea in the warm evenings, have dinner in an excellent restaurant or go for a drink in one of the many bars and cafés. CALA MILLOR’s wide range of quality accommodation, shops, services, attractions, scenery and the safe, tranquil nature of the area makes it ideal for families with small children and more mature holidaymakers. It is a magnificent holiday resort that attracts thousands of visitors, many of whom return year after year, generation after generation, proving its unquestionable attraction. Shopping. A one-kilometre-long pedestrian street runs from one end of Cala Millor to the other. It has shops selling international clothing brands, jewellers, boutiques, perfumeries, souvenir, shoe and sports clothing shops, many bars and restaurants, ice cream parlours, etc. It also has chemists’, medical services, a local police and Guardia Civil station, banks, supermarkets, car hire, taxis, children’s playgrounds, a public bus service and a mini tourist train that runs between Cala Millor, Cala Bona, S’Illot and Sa Coma from Easter week to october. There is also in Cala Millor, Sa Coma and S'Illot a weekly street market in summer. The Local Population. The residential areas of flats and houses are mainly in the municipality of Son Servera. Sports. The cycle lane that runs long the seafront is perfect for hiring bikes or a family-sized model and enjoying the sea air and fabulous views. If you’re looking for a more active holiday, many hiking and cycle published routes begin in Cala Millor that you can get in the tourism office of your zone; also there is a wide offer of sports facilities, gyms, spas, tennis courts, football pitches, golf courses, etc. Many of these activities are also available at the resort’s hotels. A wide range of water sports is available on the beach, including sailing, windsurfing, paddle surfing, diving and boat trips that set sail from Cala Millor (Cala Millor Beach). Like two arms embracing the sea, from Cala Millor we can see the points of Costa dels Pins to the north and Sa Punta de n’Amer to the south. The latter is a small, almost flat peninsula between Sa Coma and Cala Millor and has been declared a Nature Area of Special Interest. It is a protected coastal nature area that, despite its small size, is home to a wide variety of landscapes including sand dunes, cultivated fields, juniper, pines, etc. and although there are no particularly high spots, it is a good lookout point over the eastern coast of Mallorca. Stroll through this nature area and you will see a wide diversity of plants and animals, as well as Es Castell (the Castle), an emblematic monument of special historical interest that have a small museum inside that you can visit all year free. Na Penyal is a hill just two kilometres from Cala Millor with fabulous views of the whole coast. Its surroundings are ideal for hiking. Culture. Cala Millor has its own cultural centre, Sa Màniga Auditorium, with an all-year-round programme of plays, films, art and concerts. Many of the hotels also organise entertainment and some pubs and bars have live music. The resort’s streets have many sculptures and other works of art by local artists. At the end of September the Festival of the Tourist is held. The seafront promenade links Cala Millor to the port of Cala Bona in the north and Sa Coma to the south. Cala Millor has two tourist information offices.





Cala Bona

Cala Bona is a small seaside quarter in the municipality of Son Servera characterised by its traditional fishing port and the tranquil, relaxing atmosphere of the pavement terraces of its bars and restaurants, where there were once only the fishermen’s houses and their small port.

Located to the south of Port Verd and the north of Cala Millor, it is connected to both areas by a very pleasant seafront promenade. Today the quarter has residential areas and first rate hotels that attract above all families and older holidaymakers who come here for the tranquillity, safety and welcoming atmosphere. It also has supermarkets, shops, taxis, a public bus service, a tourist information office, etc.

In the small port you can see the traditional Mallorcan fishing boats known as llaüts; they are built of wood and are between 3 and 5 metres long. Originally they were wind-powered with lateen sails, but now they have diesel motors. They are still used as fishing boats by both professional and amateur fishermen and also as leisure craft.

There are three rocky beaches protected by artificial breakwaters. Cala Bona’s main beach has been certified by AENOR with the UNE 170001 Universal Accessibility Standard.

Cala Bona has maintained its traditions and right in the middle of the holiday season, on 16 July, its seafarers celebrate the day of their patron saint, Our Lady of Mount Carmel.







Sa Coma

Sa Coma is the tourist and residential zone of the municipality of Sant Llorenç des Cardassar in Llevant County, Mallorca. It has a large residential zone with first class public services including a public school, municipal facilities, a primary health care centre, tourist information office and the local police headquarters.

Sa Coma’s main attractions are its beach and Sa Punta de n’Amer , a Natural Area of Special Interest (ANEI) that separates Cala Millor from this area. Its beach is more than 800 metres long and has fine, white sand, crystalline bathing waters and quality services for holidaymakers.

Sa Coma’s conversion into a tourism and residential area began in the 1980s, when the first hotels and apartments were built. The area also has a wide range of shops and services, including a chemist’s and supermarkets, a weekly market all wednesdays from 19h. May to October, and numerous leisure attractions such as bars, restaurants –the majority serving international cuisine–, spas and sports facilities.

Sa Coma has a cycle lane that runs from Port Vell (in the north), skirts the whole of the coast and the seafront promenade of Sa Coma and reaches as far as S’Illot in the south. A tourist train runs through Sa Coma and links it to the other areas, and there is also a public bus service. The resort is also easy to reach by private car and there are convenient parking areas.

From the beach you can see one of the area’s most important resources, Sa Punta de n’Amer, a magnificent protected nature area in CALA MILLOR MALLORCA. This is one of the places most appreciated by visitors and it is perfect for walking or cycling and enjoying the local flora and fauna. Also not be missed is “El Castell”, a defensive tower that once formed part of the defensive network that protected the island of Mallorca. It is an unusual tower with a square base, which was built between the 16th and 17th centuries. The paths are easy to follow and along the rocky coastline there are places where you can take a refreshing dip far from the busier beaches. Another attraction is the resort’s splendid seafront promenade, which runs parallel to the beach and links Sa Coma and S’Illot.

Sa Coma holds its festivals in mid-July and they offer a wide range of activities for both visitors and residents, including a multicultural fair, concerts and sports activities.







S’Illot

S’Illot is a seaside holiday resort shared between the municipalities of Sant Llorenç des Cardassar and the town of Manacor, in the eastern part of the island of Mallorca. The natural border is the Torrent de Ca n’Amer that channels the waters from the area of Sant Llorenç, the Calicant Mountains and Son Carrió down to the sea.

S’Illot has a residential zone and holiday accommodation establishments. However, these were not the first buildings in the area. Right in the heart of S’Illot and just a short distance from the sea there is a large archaeological site, one of the most important in Mallorca, both in terms of its monumental diversity and its long historical evolution. The earliest elements date from 2200 BC and it existed as a settlement until at least the Romanisation of the 2nd century BC. It is well worth a visit and a recently opened Visitors Centre helps you interpret the day-to-day life of our ancient ancestors.

Strolling through S’Illot you can enjoy such sights as the bridge over the torrent, a small boatyard with llaüts (local leisure fishing boats) at the far southern end of the beach, and the views of a small island (in Catalan illot) from which the town takes its name.

The beach is the Platja de s’Illot. This is a tranquil area where you can watch people fishing from the rocks at dawn and dusk, and between the light and shadows of the sunset see children playing in the sand. The holiday accommodation is near the beach and there are plenty of shops and restaurants. The tourist train goes as far as S’Illot and the cycle lane runs from Sa Coma in the north to Porto Cristo in the municipality of Manacor.

The festivals of the patron saint of S’Illot are held at the end of August and culminate in a magnificent firework display that can be watched from the beach.







Costa dels Pins

As its name suggests, the Costa dels Pins (Pine Tree Coast) is on a slope running down to the sea from the island’s Llevant Mountains. These mountains run from the county of Artà to Felanitx in a discontinuous chain that never rises above six hundred metres. The mountain behind the resort protects it from the north winds and separates it from the town of Canyamel in the municipality of Capdepera.

The Costa dels Pins juts into the sea and has a multitude of coves, the best known of which are Sa Marjal and Es Rajolí. They are perfect for those looking for a quiet beach and ideal for snorkelling and diving to see the marine fauna of our coast. A very popular spot with visitors is the Cap des Pinar lookout point, to the north of the Costa dels Pins, with its spectacular views over the whole of Cala Millor bay. There are also attractive hiking routes that link the Costa dels Pins with Canyamel.

The Costa dels Pins is mainly a residential zone with many luxurious houses and is famous for its architecture. Its residents include a large number of well known artists and captains of industry who have chosen this area for their summer residences. It has a small shopping centre with a couple of shops and restaurants, an emblematic hotel, an 18-hole golf course and, of course, unbeatable scenery. The small shopping centre is to the north of the main beach and can be reached on foot, by public bus or on the mini tourist train.







Sant Llorenç des Cardassar

Sant Llorenç des Cardassar is the main urban centre in the municipality of the same name located in north-eastern Mallorca. In 1892 it was granted independence from Manacor and began its life as a municipality. Today it is still the municipal administrative centre.

It is said that towns are founded where there is water. This is true of Sant Llorenç des Cardassar, which was built by the Pou Vell (Old Well), the principal water supply for the town’s people and animals.

The town is located in a valley and surrounded by a magnificent natural landscape and farmland. Its possessions (the typical farming estates of Mallorca), its land, market gardens, orchards, flocks and herds are very representative of Sant Llorenç and closely linked to the countryside and rural traditions.

Since the first hotels were built on the coast, tourism and construction –and their associated activities– have been the driving force behind the economy of the municipality, which has continued to adapt to each new trend as it has come along. Although the main economic activity is tourism, we must not forget the businesses related to farming, carpentry and agricultural warehouses. The embroidery industry was also of considerable importance in the mid-20th century, when several workshops were in operation. In the summers of years gone-by you would hear the noise of the sewing machines, as the seamstresses would bring their work outside to take advantage of the cool evening air.

The town has a wide range of services including restaurants, bars, shops and public, cultural and sports amenities. The weekly market is held on Thursdays in the square in front of the church and at it you can buy fruit and vegetables, household goods, clothes, plants and many other items. Another place of interest is the town hall square, where many of the important events and festivals are held. It is also the site of the old railway station, which has recently been refurbished as a venue for events, such as the Nocturnal Fair, which is held every year in August during the town’s patron saint festivals (St Lawrence, 10 August).

The former station is now part of Via Verde Manacor-Artà (Green Way), an itinerary following the route of the former Manacor-Artà railway line that can be walked or cycled.

Well worth a visit is the Parish Church of Sant Llorenç in Major Street. It is a baroque style building with recent additions; its façade is austere and built of the plain, square blocks that are very common in Mallorcan baroque churches and it has a stepped upper frontispiece. The church is accompanied by a bell tower and a vicarage with a historicist appearance, somewhere between Gothic and Romanesque.

Another very special and much loved festival is La Mare de Déu Trobada, which is celebrated every 8 September, with the church as the centre of all the activities.

The municipality of Sant Llorenç des Cardassar covers an area of 82.1 square kilometres and has a population of around 8,000. It is made up of two inland localities, Sant Llorenç des Cardassar and Son Carrió, and the coastal resorts of S’Illot, Sa Coma and Cala Millor.





Son Servera

Son Servera is the main urban area of the municipality. It is located in the north-west of the island of Mallorca on a hill with sea views. Surrounded by an exceptional natural landscape, its traditional activities were once linked to agriculture, stockbreeding and fishing, until the tourist boom turned the hospitality industry into the main driving force of the economy.

The town has the main offices of the town council, the health centre, sports and cultural services, schools, banks, post office, shops, supermarkets, bars, restaurants, etc.

Son Servera’s architecture is in traditional Mediterranean style. In the heart of the town we find the Plaça de Sant Joan and the church of the same name, with the defensive tower originally built on the Frai Garí estate. There is also the Església Nova (New Church), an unfinished, roofless building in which religious and cultural events are held. It was designed by Joan Rubió, a disciple of the Antoni Gaudí, and it has the characteristic features of the best Modernist architecture expounded by the world famous Catalan architectural genius. Other places of interest include the Caves of Son Sard, Pula (talaiots, houses and a mill), En Calet Bridge, Can Xesc Mill, Ca s’Hereu and the tower of Port Nou. Walkers and cyclists can also enjoy the Via Verda Manacor-Artà, a “green way” that passes through the town following the old railway line.

Friday is street market day and the streets of the town centre fill with residents and visitors doing their shopping (fruit, vegetables, clothes, plants, etc.) and looking for bargains.

There is much to do in Son Servera all year round and its traditions and customs held on special dates are not to be missed: Sant Antoni (17 January); the Almond Fair and Sant Ignasi (February); the Clown and Humour Festival (April or May); Sant Joan patron saint’s day festival (24 June), etc.

The municipality of Son Servera covers an area of 42.56 km² and has a population of around 11,500. It is made up of the main urban centre, Son Servera, and various seaside quarters: Cala Millor, Cala Bona, Port Verd, Port Nou, Port Vell and Costa dels Pins.





Son Carrió

Son Carrió is a village in the municipal district of Sant Llorenç des Cardassar in north-eastern Mallorca. The roads that link the village to the neighbouring towns run though an attractive rural landscape, with the routes from Sant Llorenç and Manacor, which pass through Son Negre, being of particular scenic beauty.

It became a village in the 19th century as the result of the parcelling out of several large farming estates in Sant Llorenç des Cardassar and Manacor. Some of the land was authorised for building and the nucleus of the village was begun by laying out the church square, next to which the present-day place of worship was built.

Son Carrió has restaurants, general services, a municipal delegation, a cultural centre (Ca n’Apol·lònia) and a library. One of the village’s main attractions is its gastronomy, especially its traditional pastries, which are renowned throughout the county. Another point of interest for visitors is the Church of Sant Miquel, a Catholic place of worship whose construction began in 1899. The design was based on plans sketched out by Monsignor Antoni Maria Alcover, revised by Joan Guasp and modified slightly by the Catalan architects Antoni Gaudí and Joan Rubió. It was inaugurated in 1907. Its most striking features are the Neo-Romanesque-style façade, the fan-shaped rose window and the four-storey bell tower. The buildings at the rear –the vicarage and the former Franciscan convent– were built in the same style.

The Vía Verde Manacor-Artà (Green Way) also passes through Son Carrió, where the old train station has recently been renovated. The route is suitable for walking or cycling.

Son Carrió celebrates its patron saint’s festival on 8 May (St Michael’s Day) with cultural and leisure activities being organised throughout the previous week. It ends with a grand thematic fair of rural tasks and traditions that attracts a large number of residents from the surrounding area and the whole county.

From November to April the temperatures are mild; although the average daytime temperature is around 15ºC, when the sun comes out it can easily go over 20ºC. This is a good time to visit the island and enjoy long walks along the coast or in the countryside. These are also the wettest months, but it is rare for the rain to last more than three days.

In winter the pace is slower. Visitors enjoy the scenery, the rural countryside, the almond flowers, the history and culture of the towns and villages and our traditional gastronomy.

In May and June the warm sunny days can reach temperatures of 21-25ºC, ideal for enjoying the beach.

July and August are the hottest months with temperatures that can go over 30ºC. The sea water temperature reaches 25-27ºC, ideal for refreshing dips, swimming and enjoying the Mediterranean. The nights are balmy and rain is rare, making them perfect for enjoying our café terraces and open air activities.

At the end of September and in October the weather becomes changeable, with the occasional windy or rainy day. The best thing about this time of year is that while the days are not as hot as in the previous months, the sea maintains a very pleasant temperature that is perfect for enjoying all kinds of water sports.






Gastronomy

Traditional Mallorcan cuisine is based on ingredients and fresh and seasonal products from local farmers and stockbreeders. Combined with moderate daily physical exercise it offers the excellent lifestyle model we call the Mediterranean diet.

The recipes have been handed down through the generations over many centuries and are intimately linked to the lifestyle in our towns and villages, with their shared meals, celebrations and traditions.

There can be no doubt that in the Mediterranean, when we speak of the ingredients of the diet –in other words the trilogy of wheat, wine and the olive; pulses, vegetables, fruit, fish, cheese and nuts– we have to add an essential condiment, perhaps the basic ingredient, sociability.

The fundamental ingredients of Mallorcan cuisine are vegetables, pork and lamb; poultry, game and fish; bread, olive oil, potatoes, garlic, onions, tomatoes, aubergines, cabbage and rice, as well as squid, cuttlefish, red mullet and other varieties of fish that are prepared on the grill or in the oven with vegetables. Other important ingredients are spices and aromatic herbs, especially capsicum, red and black pepper, marjoram (similar to oregano), mint, fennel and samphire.

The best known and appreciated dishes include:

Sopes mallorquines made with vegetable broth, pork and slices of dried bread added in the last cooking phase.

Tumbet made with layers of fried potato, red pepper and aubergines served with meat or fish.

Arròs brut, soggy rice made with pork, chicken, vegetables and seasonal game.

Frit mallorquí or de matança, prepared with pieces of liver, loin of pork, potato and peppers. A variation of this is the freixura, a typical lamb dish served during Holy Week.

Roast lamb or suckling pig, rabbit and onion, loin of pork and cabbage, thrush and cabbage or onion and snails cooked in aromatic herbs are some of our other outstanding dishes.

A special occasion on which to enjoy one of these dishes is the pig slaughter, when families get together to make the traditional Mallorcan sausages, including sobrassada and butifarró.

The Mediterranean offers a variety of products with which to make both “dry” and “soggy” rice dishes. They include fish, squid and cuttlefish (grilled or stuffed with meat), and fish baked in the oven or a la mallorquina (cooked with layers of potato and vegetables). Other traditional dishes are llampuga with peppers, a seasonal fish caught in autumn and served fried with peppers and potato; or fish in marinade, which is fried and left to cool marinating in olive oil and vinegar with onion and laurel.

One of the basic products of our cuisine is Mallorcan bread, a thick, round, unsalted bread found at all our meals. It is used to prepare pa amb oli (bread with olive oil), the star turn of our diet made with slices of bread, ramallet tomato, olive oil and a pinch of salt and usually served with cheese, grilled meat or any kind of sausage.

Other products made with wheat are the cocas, a flat dough baked in the oven and topped with vegetables, parsley, grilled peppers or the ingredients of the trempó, a traditional salad of tomato, green pepper and onion; the cocarrois, half-moon-shaped pasties stuffed with vegetables or onion; or round pasties filled with meat and peas.

Among our traditional sweets is the famous ensaimada, a spiral-shaped pastry made with flour, sugar and lard, essential at any celebration; or the gató, a typical almond cake. Holy Week is the time to prepare robiols¸ half-moon-shaped sweet pastries filled with cottage cheese or jam, as well as crespells.

Finally, our wines, liqueurs and traditional aperitifs are a grand accompaniment to the culinary preparations of Mallorca. Outstanding are palo, herb liqueur, rum and Mallorcan wines. In recent years there has been a surprising increase in the production of Mallorcan wines. There are currently about 60 wineries on the island that produce some 300 types of wine. Particularly interesting is their use of local varieties of grape, some of which had fallen out of use and have recently been re-introduced. They include red varieties such as Callet, Manto Negro and Fogoneu and white varieties such as Premsal.

The CALA MILLOR MALLORCA area has a wide variety of restaurants that offer visitors the traditional dishes of Mallorcan gastronomy. In the supermarkets and local markets it is also possible to buy products made on the island.





Culture

Mallorca is an island with a deeply-rooted agricultural and religious culture and its festivals are linked to the natural cycles of farm work, the sea that surrounds it, the liturgical cycles and Christianity (Holy Week, Christmas, Epiphany, the patron saint feast days, etc.).

For the first-time visitor, CALA MILLOR MALLORCA might seem like a group of seaside holiday resorts distanced from any local tradition and culture. However, in recent years great efforts have been made to raise awareness of our traditional festivals, while maintaining their authenticity. If your visit coincides with one of these festivals, we invite you to enjoy it with us and take home wonderful memories of an authentic Mallorcan experience.

The most popular Mallorcan folk dance is the Ball de bot, a group dance accompanied by lute, guitar, flute, violin and drum music. Traditional Mallorcan music has unquestionable Arab influences and the songs are normally about working the fields, love and eroticism.

Other characteristic features of the Balearic culture are the rondalles or folk tales that once enlivened all family get-togethers around the hearth; punt mallorquí, the island’s own embroidery technique for which each county has its own special designs; and the glossador tournaments, an original kind of improvised song from Mallorca that has been revived and popularised in recent years.

There are events in the Mallorcan countryside that require the collective effort of families and friends and are always a good opportunity for a celebration after the work has been done. These include the traditional slaughtering of the pig, the almond and olive harvests, the making of nougat, olive oil or herb liqueur, etc. All these are traditions that have been passed down from generation to generation.

Mallorca also has a long tradition of organising cultural events of all types, both local and international. They include classical, jazz and contemporary music festivals, as well as arts-related events. Mallorca’s special light has attracted many foreign artists and has inspired local artists, many of whose pictures and sculptures can be seen in our resort.







Geography

The resort of CALA MILLOR MALLORCA is located in the north-eastern part of the island of Mallorca in the western Mediterranean. From north to south it takes in the coastal area between La Costa dels Pins and S’Illot, with Port Vell, Es Port Verd, Cala Bona, Cala Millor, Sa Punta de n'Amer and Sa Coma in between.

Administratively the resort belongs to two different municipalities: Son Servera, which includes La Costa dels Pins, Es Port Verd, Cala Bona and the northern part of Cala Millor; and Sant Llorenç des Cardassar, which takes in part of Cala Millor, Sa Punta de n’Amer, Sa Coma, S’Illot and the village of Son Carrió. Like the town of Cala Millor, S’Illot is also shared by two municipalities, with the Ca n’Amer torrent marking the natural border between the municipalities of Manacor and Sant Llorenç des Cardassar.

The area has differentiated features in terms of its population, geography and flora and fauna, some of which are quite remarkable. Other characteristics are related to the economic exploitation of the territory, despite the fact its main role now is as a residential and tourism zone, with the latter being the driving force behind the economy.

The part of the coast belonging to the municipality of Son Servera is rockier with small, shallow coves and stony shores. The southern zone –Cala Millor, Sa Coma and S’Illot– has longer sandy beaches that are separated by the Sa Punta de n’Amer peninsula, a protected nature area that was declared a Nature Area of Special Interest in the 1980s and acts as a true “green lung” between the built-up zones.

This part of the eastern coast of Mallorca is bordered by the sea and the Llevant Mountains, which rise in the north of the Artà Peninsula and continue, with breaks, parallel to the coast and with hills and mountains that are never higher than 600 metres, as far as Felanitx, Sa Colònia de Sant Jordi and Santanyí. They end on the island of Cabrera that emerges to the south of the island of Mallorca.

From north to south, the Llevant Mountains are made up of various small ranges such as the Artà Massif, the Serra de Sant Jordi, the Serra Llonga and the Serra de Calicant. The highest points are Puig de Calicant (473 m), Puig des Telègraf (418 m) and Puig d’en Sard (413 m).





Flora

In Cala Millor can be observed a wide range of habitats, each one with a great diversity of plant species typical from Mediterranean areas. The garrigue is the most abundant vegetation you can observe, mainly it consists of shrubs of medium height as mastic (Pistacia lentiscus), white steppe (Cistus albidus), black sttepe (Cistus monspeliensis), heather (Erica multiflora) or rosemary (Rosmarinus officinalis). This habitat could be found in different areas of Cala Millor, from the end of the dunes of Sa Punta de n’Amer to the highest areas of the interior mountains of the neighbouring municipality. The proximity to the coast allows to detect other interesting habitats as the dunes. They are characterized by the presence of the sand as substratum and the exposition to the saline spray and the wind; both restrict the presence of the species in function of their ability to resist these conditions. The first species you can observe in this habitat is the European marram grass (Ammophila arenaria), that shows a great ability to fix the sand and to ease the presence of other plants. In this habitat, must be mentioned the sea daffodil (Pancratium maritimum), the sea holly (Eryngium maritimum), the yellow hornpoppy (Glaucium flavum) or the sea spurge (Euphorbia paralias), all of them bloom during summer and fall. It attracts attention the lawns of grey birdsfoot trefoil (Lotus cytisoides) and aromatic plants as the ones included in the genre Teucrium spp. At the dunes area, further away from the sea, where the substratum is stable and rich in nutrients, it is where we find the plant community own of the junipers. It is composed by trees as the juniper (Juniperus phoenicea) and the white pine (Pinus halepensis). At the coast areas where there is a rocky substratum and there is no sand, is where we can find species as the rock sea-lavenders (Limonium spp, where the Balearic endemism Limonium biflorum stands out), the sea fennel (Crithmum maritimum) and the endemic Socarrels of Balearic Islands (Launaea cervicornis). At the interior areas of Cala Millor, where the ground is wet and deep enough, we can find the holm oak wood, peculiar because of its high humidity, shade and leafiness. It is in this habitat where appears a great diversity of plants adapted to shade and humidity areas, where abounds the holm oak (Quercus ilex) and other peculiar neighbour as the pa porcí (Cyclamen balearicum), the sarsaparilla (Smilax aspera) and the wild madder (Rubia peregrine) or even fern as Pteridium aquilinum and Polypodium cambricum. In other environments where the quantity of ground is not so abundant or the humidity conditions are not high enough, we find the wild olive tree (Olea europaea var sylvestis). Out of the Mallorca natural areas, it is remarkable the typical rural crops of the island, as the almond trees (Prunus dulcis), fig trees (Ficus carica), carob trees (Ceratonia siliqua) and the olive trees (Olea europaea). Specifically, the bloom of the almond tree during the first trimester of the year leaves an emblematic picture of the traditional crop of Mallorca. During August and September, it is very common to see the peasant farmers collecting the fruits in Cala Millor landscape. Below it is explained the main characteristics of some representative species of the flora present in Cala Millor: Wild Olive Tree (Olea europaea var sylvestis): It is the most common tree species of Cala Millor. It is found in a great variety of places as the side paths, crags or mountains. Its cultivated variety is the olive tree. The Summer Asphodel (Asphodelus aestivus): It is an herbaceous very common at the garrigue, path sides and rural areas. It is characterized by the white flowers that it does. It is frequently visited by the area insects and for that reason it is a good place to observe the pollination. Thistle: Set of different species that share a characteristic: They are very thorny with big violet flowers. In Cala Millor it is possible to find a great variety of thistle, from the sea holly (Eryngium maritimum) to the cardus marianus (Silybum marianum) or the globe artichoke (Cynara cardunculus). The most abundant is the white thistle (Galactites tormentosa). Stramma (Ampelodesmos mauritanica): Grass very abundant at the mountain and the garrigue, it is characterizing by the size of its spike. At the burned areas, the stramma dominates the area until formed a reedbed. The leaves are rough and they even can hurt.  They have traditional uses as the grass and the manufacture of ropes and carpets. Mediterranean dwarf palm (Chamaerops humilis): It is the only indigenous palm tree from the Balearic Islands that abounds at the high areas. Normally, they have a short size, around 2 meters. Traditionally, at the towns of Arta and Capdepera they are used to made “llatre”. Sabine (Juniperus phoenicea): It is a short size tree from the coast areas with the ability to resist the exceed of marine salt that the wind brings. With the tamarisk (Tamarix spp.) both are the only trees with the ability to resist the coast conditions. They are abundant at the areas of Cala Millor and Sa Costa de Pins.   As a particularity, the vegetation of Mallorca presents emblematic species that are important to know when you do a naturalistic route. On one side, the orchids are abundant at the garrigue areas and even at the dunes interior areas (Orchis spp., Ophrys spp., Serapias spp.). On the other It is important to highlight the autumn geophytes that appears at the garrigue, as the endemic Crocus cambesedesii or the Merendera filifolia. The abandoned crops are quickly invaded by nitrophile plants with a powerful colours. They are a fundamental part of the rural landscape of Cala Millor. Among them, you can distinguish the poppies (Papaver rhoeas) and the crown daisy (Chrysanthemum coronarium). Near Cala Millor we find the Llevant Peninsula Natural Park where we can find a great variety of indigenous plant species and they create a unique landscape. Besides, it is a good opportunity to observe endemic plant species as the steppe joana (Hypericum balearicum), the steppe blanera (Phlomis italica), the coixinet de monja (Astragalus balearicus) and the Hippocrepis balearica.

Local festivals

Many festivals and traditions are celebrated in the area during the year. As Mallorca is a largely agricultural land, it is logical that the festivals are organised around work in the fields and the cycles of nature.

Over the years the resort areas have incorporated festive elements in order to preserve the traditions, encourage participation and invite our visitors to join in and celebrate our most emblematic festivals with us.

Each village and area has its own festivals. Some of the highlights of the year are: Son Carrió (May), Son Servera (June), Sa Coma (July), Sant Llorenç des Cardassar (August), S’Illot (August) and Cala Millor (August). They last several days and include a wide range of activities, including fairs, traditional markets offering local gastronomic products, cultural religious events, dances, traditional and contemporary music, games and sports events. This is a time when the people of the villages who have moved elsewhere come back to their roots to enjoy the festivities and spend time with their families and friends. Other traditional festivals are those held to celebrate the town’s patron saint’s days. The following are good examples:

St Anthony’s Day on 17 January is one of the most deeply rooted with a large number of activities related to the veneration of the patron saint of domestic animals and to seek protection for the animals that help in the fields. The festival begins on the eve of the saint’s day with the St Anthony’s Day Dance and Party. Big bonfires are lit in the main streets and squares of the towns and villages. Fire is the focus of this celebration and symbolises the purification and renovation of life and the triumph of good over evil.

St Michael’s Day on 8 of May, patron saint of Son Carrió; St John’s Day on 24 June, patron saint of Son Servera; Our Lady of Mount Carmel on 16 July, patron saint of fishermen in Cala Bona; St Lawrence on 10 August, patron saint of Sant Llorenç des Cardassar; Our Lady of the Angels in August in Cala Millor; La Mare de Déu Trobada on 8 September in Sant Llorenç des Cardassar.







History

Sant Llorenç des Cardassar

The municipal area of Sant Llorenç des Cardassar covers 82.1 square kilometres and has a population of 8,700. It is in the northeastern part of the island of Mallorca and is made up of two inland localities, Sant Llorenç des Cardassar and Son Carrió, as well as the holiday resorts of S’Illot, Sa Coma and Cala Millor.

The municipality has more than 70 catalogued archaeological sites, including caves that were lived in or used as burial sites by the Talayotic peoples.

Of particular note from the Roman era is the early Christian basilica of Son Peretó and the vestiges of the Arab domination (10th to early 13th century) are found in the place names.

Before the Catalan conquest, Sant Llorenç had a scattered population near the torrents, wells and the hill on which the village church was built. With the arrival of the Catalans and the Aragonese and the expulsion of the Arabs, Sant Llorenç des Cardassar became an urban centre administered by Manacor.

A 1248 Papal bull issued by Pope Innocence IV refers to the parish church of Santa María del Bellver, where St Lawrence was venerated; for many years, the village was known as Santa Maria de Bellver or simply Bellver. Nevertheless, it is also documented as Sant Llorenç de Bellver (1349) and Sant Llorenç des Cardassar (1519). In 1612, faced with insecurity along the coast and constant pirate attacks from the sea, the Gran i General Consell ordered the building of a fortress on Punta de n’Amer –known as the Castle of Sa Punta de n’Amer– over the remains of an earlier fortification.

In 1892 Sant Llorenç des Cardassar attained independence from the municipality of Manacor and in the same year its jurisdiction was extended inland to Son Carrió and on the coast to Cala Millor, Sa Coma and S’Illot.

In 1948 authorisation was granted to parcel out the area of Ca n’Amer in S’Illot and it was not long before the resort areas began to develop rapidly. Traditional embroidery and a small carpentry industry combined with farming and stockbreeding until the 1960s, when tourism began to attract major investment. In just a few years the economy changed from the primary to the tertiary sector, with the latter being now the most representative of local industry. The municipality has adapted to these changes by creating the infrastructure needed for the tourism industry, including accommodation, restaurants, transportation and shops.

Son Servera

The first vestiges of human habitation in Son Servera date to prehistoric times. These original inhabitants probably came from Sardinia, Corsica, Sicily and Occitania, territories archaeologically similar to Mallorca, and they were probably related to the prehistoric Greek Indo-European cultures that reached these islands, particularly Mallorca and Menorca.

There are more than 40 important settlements preserved in Son Servera from this pre-Talayotic and Talayotic period. They include the pre-Talayotic caves on the Son Sard estate and Talayotic archaeological sites with numerous navetes, talaiots and fortifications, which were normally built on hills or at a certain height. Good examples can be seen at Pula, Son Gener and Sa Pleta­.

After the fall of the Roman Empire, the islands were conquered several different times. Attackers ranged from the Vandals and other Germanic tribes to the eastern Roman Empire, according to the chronicles of the time and the remains of Byzantine temples found near Son Servera and Sant Llorenç.

Later, following the fall of the Visigothic kingdom on the mainland, the Arabs came to Mallorca in the 10th century. The area’s Arab population was spread out across various farms and estates, such as Ferret, Es Canal, Sa Penya Roja, Son Comparet, Ca s’Hereu and Son Floriana, all linked to the domain of Artà (Iartan) and the Muslim Quinena family. As theirs was a rural population living in scattered farms, they left very few traces, although there is evidence of them, for example, at S’hort Tancat, La Font de Sa Jordana and the water mills of Son Sard and Son Comparet. In fact, they stayed until the early 13th century, specifically until the year 1229, when Mallorca and subsequently the other Balearic islands were conquered by the Kingdom of Aragon. Following the conquest of Mallorca by King Jaume I and the expulsion of the Arabs, the island was shared out among the nobles and ecclesiastical authorities who had taken part in or supported the conquest. They were mainly Catalans, but also some from Aragon and other parts, including Occitanians and Italians.

The present-day counties of Son Servera and Artà were allocated to the citizens and knights of Marseilles who had participated in the conquest. These were properties in the Iartan (Artà) area –those that had been in the possession of the previously mentioned Benu-Quinena family– and part was also given to the monks of St George, now the possesió or estate of Sant Jordi.

This new dispersed population structure established in the 13th century was maintained for some two hundred years, without any town or village of any note being built, although the Ordinacions of the year 1300 tell us of the establishment of a ‘town at the Port of Banyeres’, probably the present-day Port Vell. However, no traces remain of those buildings if they were ever built.

The Servera family, originally from the Mallorcan locality of Porreres, purchased a large part of the three Binicanella farms in the 14th century, although the county continued to be administered from Artà. In the late 15th century, following the dividing up of the Cervera (or Servera) family lands, Binicanella became the nucleus of the present-day town and a defensive tower was built to protect against Saracen incursions. Today this tower is in the centre of Son Servera and is the tower of the vicarage in the town church between the two parts of the farm, Son Garí to the north and Ca s’Hereu to the south, both owned by the Servera family.

Over the years the family lands were divided up among its members. By the 16th century there were houses at Ca s’Hereu and we know holy masses were held in the tower in the centre of the village, which means there must have been houses and a stable population in the area.

In the late 17th century debts caused the Servera family to lose most or all of its lands and they were confiscated and put up for sale by Artà town council. Having failed to find buyers immediately, the governors of Artà (known as the Universidat) took possession of the Servera family houses and lands and sold them with certain conditions, including that no purchaser could acquire more than four quarterades (a quarterada is the equivalent of approximately 7000 square metres) and that buyers had to be residents of Artà.

In the final years of the 17th century we have documentary evidence of several dozen houses with corrals along a public road that began at the tower on the lands of Ca s’Hereu and roughly followed the route of the present-day Doctor Servera Street.

The urban centre of Servera began to grow considerably, still under the auspices of Artà town council. Finally, in the 19th century, following various legal changes in which Son Servera successively became an independent municipality or returned to the jurisdiction of Artà, in 1820 it gained its own independent town council. At that time nearly 2,000 people lived in the town and on the scattered farms, despite the fact that the population had been considerably reduced by several epidemics.

The 20th century saw a major change in Son Servera’s economy. It went from a basically agricultural and stockbreeding –and to a lesser extent fishing– area, to become one of the main holiday and tourism centres of the island.

Cala Millor

The development of Cala Millor, now one of Mallorca’s best known holiday resorts, began in the late 1950s and it has not stopped growing since.

It has passed through all the stages of the history of tourism in Mallorca. In the 1960s, when the first hotels –the Eureka and the Sabina– were built, there were only a few single-storey houses and several hotels under construction. Later it went through the urban development boom in the late 1960s and 1970s; it weathered the crisis of the 1980s and moved on to the reconversion, embellishment and quality improvement plans of the 1990s. Today the tendency is to commit to sustainable tourism.

Cala Millor is a sun and beach destination. Its main attractions are the beaches of fine, white sand, transparent blue bathing waters and protected nature areas. It also offers a wide variety of accommodation and complementary services that give our visitors wonderful, top quality holidays in a new way of understanding tourism.

Sa Coma

Sa Coma was conceived as a holiday resort in the 1980s, when the first hotels, apartments and holiday homes were built. Since then it has seen controlled growth under an urban plan based on the proliferation of green zones, leisure areas and protected nature zones, such as Sa Punta de n’Amer, a Nature Area of Special Interest (ANEI) and one of the most valuable nature areas on the coastline. This natural area also has many historical vestiges. Near the sea we find Sa Pedrera (the remains of a quarry where the sedimentary rock known as mares was extracted), further inland we find the Castell (Castle), a vestige of the defences built by our ancestors, and somewhat farther inland, the archaeological remains of the Talayotic peoples who populated this area during prehistory.

S’Illot

Our prehistoric ancestors had already found in S’Illot the perfect spot to build one of the main Talayotic settlements on the island of Mallorca. It is considered to be one of the most important Talayotic and post-Talayotic archaeological sites, due to its monumental variety and long, complex historical evolution. The settlement is made up of different complexes with communal buildings around which were built the houses the people lived in. An extensive stretch of the wall that originally surrounded the whole settlement is preserved. It has recently been restored with its value as a tourist attraction in mind. There is an interpretation centre and various itineraries to help visitors understand the site.

In 1964 the first two hotels were built on the beach at S’Illot, next to the torrent that runs down from the Calicant Mountains, passing though Sant Llorenç des Cardassar and Son Carrió on its way to the sea. Since then it has continued to grow as a resort with more hotels, apartments and services to meet the demand from visitors.

Son Carrió

The mid-19th century in the municipal area of Sant Llorenç des Cardassar saw a process in which the large rural estates were broken up into smaller farms, following a general trend on the rest of the island. In 1860 a large part of the estate known as Son Carrió was divided into small properties that were purchased by residents of Sant Llorenç des Cardassar and Manacor.

In the period between 1885 and 1893 the subdivision of the estates of Son Tovell, Sa Gruta, Es Rafal de Sa Riba, Son Berga, Es Molinet, Es Boscarró, and many others led to a considerable increase in the population. In Son Carrió rustic land was rapidly reclassified as suitable for building, opening it up for development.

In 1879 the village of Sant Miguel –as Son Carrió was known then– consisted of three longitudinal and four transversal streets, not a great deal different to those we know today.

In 1866 the donation by Joan Lliteres Llull of a plot of land next to his shop on which to build a church for the growing village and the arrival of Franciscan nuns in 1899 were major factors that accelerated its growth into the town we know today.

The new parish church of Sant Miquel is a Catholic place of worship whose construction began in 1899. The design was based on plans sketched out by Monsignor Antoni Maria Alcover, revised by Joan Guasp and modified slightly by the Catalan architects Antoni Gaudí and Joan Rubió. It was inaugurated in 1907. Its most striking features are the Neo-Romanesque-style façade, the fan-shaped rose window and the four-storey bell tower. The buildings at the rear –the vicarage and the former Franciscan convent– were built in the same style.

Our Beaches

The resort of CALA MILLOR has 8 beaches: Cala MillorSa ComaS’Illot, Cala BonaSa MarjalPort RoigEs Ribell and Es Ratjolí

They are an essential part of our natural surroundings and protecting them and keeping them in good condition is the responsibility of those of us who have the privilege of enjoying their beauty all year round, as well as those who are fortunate enough to visit us. While it is easy to see a beach as little more than sea and sand, these crystalline waters are home to a very special plant community, meadows of posidonia oceanic or Neptune grass. This seagrass species is extremely important to the ecology and essential for regenerating beaches and maintaining water quality.

We want you to enjoy our beaches and we would also like to ask you to help us protect them. For this reason, we invite you to learn about their ecological importance.

 

What is Posidonia oceanica?

Posidonia oceanica is a marine phanerogam (with roots, a stem, leaves, flowers and fruits) endemic to the Mediterranean Sea. Its presence indicates good water quality and it is one of the reasons Sa Punta de n’Amer was included in the Natura 2000 network as a Site of Community Importance (SCI). The extensive meadows it forms are one of the richest marine ecosystems on the coast. As the posidonia leaves decompose they produce long fibres that resist putrefaction and end up forming the so-called “sea balls”.

Conservation actions

Any loss of posidonia meadows has a very detrimental effect on the coastline as a whole and therefore we need to know how we can help preserve them:

Blue Flag

blueflagThe Blue Flag is a distinction awarded annually by the European Foundation for Environmental Education to beaches and ports that meet a series of environmental requirements and have the appropriate facilities. Our area has renewed its blue flags on the following beaches: Sa Marjal, Costa dels Pins, Cala Millor and Sa Coma and in the port of Cala Bona. This guarantees optimum conditions on our coast.

We have received these awards thanks to the excellent quality of our bathing waters and the facilities provided on the beaches and in the ports, including toilets, showers and cleaning and maintenance services. It is a certificate that guarantees the quality of the beaches and the port of Cala Bona and helps us promote the area as a first class holiday destination.

A Blue Flag flying over a beach recognises and stimulates the efforts of local communities to ensure that they meet the stipulated criteria for legality, accessibility, sanitation, cleanliness and safety, as well as offering suitable information and an environmental management system.

Markets

The island of Mallorca preserves the traditions deeply rooted in agricultural work and the different seasons of the year. Before tourists started coming here, the market was not only a place where farm workers could meet, but also the local point of sale for their produce.

It still serves the same purpose, but today it is an essential place for all the village’s residents to catch on the latest news and events, to meet friends, etc. Mallorcan town and village markets are held weekly and the goods they offer depend on the time of the year (Christmas, local festivals, summer, etc.). Stallholders sell fresh produce including seasonal fruit and vegetables and other local products such as cheese, sausages, etc., as well as handicrafts, clothing and leather goods.

Our area has weekly markets in Sant Llorenç des Cardassar, Son Servera and Son Carrió, as well as seasonal markets in the coastal resorts of Cala Millor, Sa Coma and S’Illot.

In summer the number of both shoppers and stallholders increases considerably and the markets are one of the best places to experience the true atmosphere of a place.

Tourism Board







About us

The Tourism Consortium of Son Servera and Sant Llorenç des Cardassar was created on 16 January 2013 by the local councils of Son Servera and SantLlorenç des Cardassar, together with the Hotel Association of Bahía de CalaMillor-Sa Coma. The Consortium is a body governed by public law, with separate legal personality, which was created to promote and develop tourism in these municipalities. The tourist destination of Son Servera and SantLlorenç des Cardassar has hotel accommodation for some 37.000 visitors. It is the Balearic Islands’ third most important destination. Since its inception, the Consortium has pursued four strategic aims: • collaborating with other public and private entities to promote joint actions; • observing, studying and analysing the current state of tourism in the area, identifying tourism-related and commercial problems, and proposing corrective measures; • providing quality at the destination, encouraging the adaptation of infrastructure and services, and managing facilities and installations which attract tourism; • enhancing branding, promoting the active presence of both municipalities in the tourism market and managing the destination’s brand identity, developing publicity material, advertising and PR campaigns. Governing Bodies The Consortium’s governing bodies are the General Meeting, the Board of Directors, the Presidency and the Consortium Management. In February 2016, the Advisory Board was formed, a collegiate body whose objective is to actively involve entrepreneurs from all economic sectors in the decision-making of the Consortium’s other governing bodies. The GeneralMeeting’s powers include the Consortium’s higher-level functions, while the Board of Directors is responsible for the basic governance of the Consortium. The Presidency of the Consortium is held for a term of two years by the mayors of Son Servera and SantLlorenç des Cardassar, on a rotational basis. The Vice Presidency, also a two-year term, is held by the mayor who is not President during this period. The Management’s main functions are the financial planning, administration and management of the Consortium, based on guidelines established by the General Meeting, the Board of Directors and the Presidency. The current head is the Manager of the Hotel Association of Bahía de CalaMillor-Sa Coma. Human and technical resources, as well as the Consortium’s facilities, are maintained by contributions from the founding entities: the two local councils and the Hotel Association of CalaMillor-Sa Coma. The Advisory Board In February 2016, the Board of Directors agreed to create the Advisory Board.Given that the Consortium identified a need to strengthen links between the different business groups to promote the experiences offered to tourists at the destination, its main aim is to actively involve entrepreneurs from the tourist sector in the management of the destination’s tourism. The Advisory Board is intended to be a consultative body with the capacity to take decisions related to all aspects of the tourist destination. Participation in the Advisory Board also offers added value and advantages for the companies involved, including: • direct information and the ability to participate in the design and implementation of all activities geared towards increasing tourist demand; • involvement in decision-making for all civic activities that may favour the expansion and the quality of tourism services; • direct channel for sending suggestions to both municipalities for improving infrastructures and tourism services; • direct involvement in the round tables studying critical aspects linked to the sector and proposing measures for tackling them; • informational, advertising and image-related material designed to publicise resources and promote visitor uptake - fam trips, merchandising, brochures and information leaflets; • direct involvement in the communication campaigns for promoting inland tourism; • greater visibility both on the website www.visitcalamillor.com - with a company-specific tab and a direct link - and the Consortium’s social profiles. As of the end of 2016, the Advisory Board comprises representatives of Pimem, Pimeco, the Majorcan Association of Bars, Cafes and Restaurants, the Balearic Business Federation for Transport (FEBT), Active Tourism, the resort’s golf courses, the Hotel Association of CalaMillor-Sa Coma, and involves the collaboration of the Balearic Federation of Business Associations (CAEB).

Urban Art Route Color Millor

The «Color Millor» urban art route is a large-format artistic creation designed to generate a reaction and a dialogue with the spectator in the street. It is a powerful way of creating community and transmitting values, histories and positivism, at the same time as rehabilitating a public space. Conceived as an open-air art gallery, it is always open and is for everybody, without restriction of age or social status. It has the simple intention of bringing art to the people. These creations embellish the public space and give form and colour to previously sad and degraded areas that are now a scenic incentive added to the environment.   NAME AND LOGOTYPE «Color Millor» The name is a play on words between the name of the resort, Cala Millor, and the word colour. The result is an itinerary dominated by art and colour running through different parts of the resort.   MURALS Most of the murals are painted on electricity substations, which already have the ideal volume and tend to be rather run-down with zero visual interest. Moreover, the designs are unique and, therefore, cannot be found on any other walls anywhere in the world. The themes are always respectful and never infringe on human rights, encourage violence or discriminate on the grounds of gender, race or anything else. They just exhibit day-to-day stories and situations related to the sea, gastronomy and the area’s traditions, in a friendly, colourful and fun way. Each mural has a plaque with the title of the work and a QR code. Scanning the digital code with your mobile phone will take you to the visitcalamillor.com website, where you can find detailed information on the whole route and watch a video showing the creation and end result of all the murals included on it.   LOCATIONS The murals are at different sites in Son Servera, Sant Llorenç, Cala Bona, Cala Millor, sa Coma, s'Illot and Son Carrió. They embellish different areas, so that people interested in the artistic itinerary will also be able to visit the inland villages and not only the tourist areas.
  SATH, THE ARTIST Sandro Thomàs − artistic name SATH – was born in 1983 in Son Servera, Mallorca. After some years as a self-taught painter, in 2004 he began a degree in graphic design in Palma. SATH uses figurative elements to create colourful, slightly surrealistic works and impossible situations or actions, all the while transmitting the message. Images of daily life flow and dissolve into others, creating different meaning. He pursues the idea of recontextualisation as a tool for building new meanings. Since 2002, his preferred technique has been spray painting (graffiti). As a visual communicator, he shares his curiosity and his thoughts through painting, be it on canvas or finding different uses for urban spaces, mainly outside the traditional contexts of places for art.

Projects

 #EastMallorca

  With the impetus of the Son Servera and Sant Llorenç des Cardassar Tourism Consortium behind it, the #EastMallorca project is born with the objective of promoting and fostering one of the busiest tourist areas in the Balearic Islands. The #EastMallorca destination is formed by the union of five municipalities in eastern Mallorca: Son Servera, Sant LLorenç des Cardassar, Manacor, Artà and Capdepera. They make up a tourist destination with a total area of 580 km2 and more than 70,000 beds for holidaymakers, 24% of the total for the island of Mallorca. In addition to an extensive range of quality accommodation, the destination offers diverse tourism products and resources: beaches, cultural activities, nature, wellbeing and sports activities, etc. All these assets make up a comprehensive tourism offer that fosters quality and deseasonalisation and, through promotion and communications strategies, will be marketed as #EastMallorca. The purpose of this project is to combine the assets of each of the municipalities to build a tourism offer in which the perfect combination of diversity and quality will allow us to increase our competitiveness with respect to other areas of Mallorca. In short, the aim is to strengthen the ability of the destination to be competitive and sustainable in the long term. In addition to the existing conventional demand, there is also a demand for new experiences and active tourism. This requires a new structural approach to allow for a variety of leisure offers to coexist. In this respect, the tourism products currently being worked on by the #EastMallorca project are:   All these products can be added to the many other alternatives that emerge as a consequence of efforts to diversify the offer. The objective is, through joint work and cooperation, to attract tourism to a destination that, due to its geographic location −some distance from the airport− needs to strengthen its offer of resources to compete with other areas of Mallorca. [gallery link="file" ids="15352"]

#EastMallorcaCup

  Sport is one of the best options for deseasonalising the holiday market. Mallorca, and more specifically the eastern part of the island, has an important hotel infrastructure, sports facilities and areas of great tourist interest, making it the ideal setting in which to organise one of the best tournaments in Europe. This sports event can evolve into a family, gastronomic, nature and sports tourism product. It is seen as a transversal event with direct and indirect benefits for the socioeconomic sectors of the municipalities, specifically the catering, commerce, accommodation and transport sectors. The EastMallorcaCup is an international tournament of both male and female youth football teams. It is divided into three different categories and is currently competed in by approximately 80 teams, with more than 1,700 players and 2,000 people accompanying them. The participants include teams from Spain, Germany, Holland, Belgium, Great Britain, Italy, Brazil, Ecuador, China, Japan and Australia. The matches are played at seven sites: Manacor: FC Enagistes and FC Porto Cristo Sant Llorenç: es Moleter Football Ground, Sant Llorenç des Cardassar Son Servera: Ses Eres Football Ground Cala Millor: Cala Millor Sports and Services Centre Capdepera:  FC Capdepera Artà: Ses Pesqueres Football Ground It is planned for this tournament to have between 160 and 200 participating teams in the medium term (2022), bringing some 10,000 visitors for 5 days in low season. [gallery link="file" ids="15351,15350"]

#GrEastMallorca

  The project consists of the creation of a long-distance footpath (GR) that allows the eastern part of the island of Mallorca to be crossed on foot or by bicycle. The #GrEastMallorca footpath will connect the localities of Artà, Capdepera, Sant Llorenç, Son Servera and Manacor along a 175-km route with 4 stages, 3 variations and 3 derivations. The route is based on a circular itinerary that can be started at any point, taken in any direction, and for the distance desired by the user. The stages, variations and derivations have been designed to create a highly versatile network, making it possible to divide the path into shorter itineraries and thus configure an “à la carte” hike or cycle ride. The itinerary will be officially approved by the FEDME (Spanish Federation for Mountain and Climbing Sports) and the IMBA (International Mountain Bike Association), making it the first officially-approved walking and cycling itinerary on the island. Thanks to the inspections carried out by the official approval bodies, as well as the use of standardised international markings and signage, this type of itinerary meets all the requirements needed to guarantee user safety and minimise the risk of accident or getting lost. The main objectives of the project are: -   The main objective of signposting East Mallorca is the configuration of a first-class tourism attraction that responds to new market demands, creating a tourism infrastructure that is fully integrated into the environment. -  The development of the municipalities it runs through, as well as their environmental and heritage resources, focusing on in the dispersed resources in the countryside that are difficult to access if not by this type of tourism route. -    To foster tourism, entrepreneurial and environmentally sustainable development based on recovering traditional historic paths for hiking and cycling. -   To recover, clean up and make known the footpaths of the area (pathways of great scenic and heritage value with a multitude of uses). -  To attract responsible tourism combining sport, nature, gastronomy and culture. -    To increase the offer of high-quality sports and active tourism as a means of boosting the tourism sector through hiking and cycle tourism. -  To encourage diversification in the tourism services offered by private firms. -   To configure a quality holiday destination, adapting and reorganising the area’s tourism resources in such a way as to increase the competitiveness of the municipalities’ tourism offer. [gallery link="file" ids="15363"]

#GolfEastMallorca

  A project based both on specialisation and the creation and improvement of the components of the offer motivating golf or sports leisure travel. Golf has become increasingly important over recent years, thanks to its repercussion on society; as a tourist resource it has seen unprecedented growth as an active tourism activity undertaken in the natural environment. The five golf courses in the #EastMallorca destination (Pula Golf, Golf Son Servera, Canyamel Golf, Capdepera Golf and Rotana Greens) jointly aim to improve, promote and position the area as a fundamental linchpin for the creation of a much more varied offer to meet the expectations of our visitors. The #GolfEastMallorca project allows us to construct an offer in which the perfect combination of variety and high quality standards makes us more competitive and, in our particular case, helps us overcome the disadvantage posed by the sixty kilometres that separate us from Palma airport. Thanks to the fact that golf helps to deseasonalise destinations, as well as to complement traditional sun and beach tourism, allows us to diversify and promote the low season by offering a sporting and tourism attraction that adds considerable value to the destination. There are certain specific aspects that can be postulated as a basis for reinforcing this type of golf tourism, thanks to its quality and power of attraction: the accessibility of the destination (not only the wide range of flights to the island, but also the good road access), the existence of various golf courses and the quality of the complementary offer of the #GolfEastMallorca destination. [gallery link="file" ids="15364"]

#MiceEastMallorca

  #EastMallorca is an excellent choice as a MICE (Meeting, Incentive, Conference and Exhibition) destination. The more than 11 million tourists who visit the island of Mallorca every year are proof of its attraction and also make it an ideal business tourism destination. #EastMallorca offers various cultural, convention and meeting centres around the five municipalities: Manacor Auditorium and Theatre, Porto Cristo Cultural Centre, Sa Màniga Auditorium, Espai 36, Artà Theatre, La Unió Theatre and Cap Vermell, with a capacity of more than 3,500 people. These multipurpose facilities are highly versatile and are equipped with the latest technology and audiovisual equipment. As a complement to meeting and convention tourism, #EastMallorca offers a wide diversity of all-year-round tourism resources and products: Finally, coexisting behind the public #EastMallorca intermunicipal cooperation initiative is a large private sector expert in the existing resources and products, which is capable of having a considerable repercussion on the project, helping to increase competitiveness and positive growth in the area’s economy.
