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.
