A family player
Sa Coma may not have really got going ’til the Eighties, but now this purpose-built resort on Majorca’s east coast is really on a roll. The place has been put together for families, with a traffic-free prom and plenty of restaurants catering for little appetites. As for the beach, the wave of the Blue Flag tells you it’s a nice, clean spot.
White sandy beach
You’ve got about 1 kilometre’s worth of white sand here, with plenty of sunloungers lined up for hire. The beach loops around a horseshoe bay, so the water stays shallow a long way out – it’s nice and calm, too, if you’re thinking of going out in a pedalo. And snacks and ice-creams are right on the prom when you need them.
Families really do get star treatment, here. In-resort, you’ve got a go-karting track, mini-golf courses and a pony-trekking centre right by the beach – you can just go over to say hello if you don’t want to go on a ride. And just up the road in Cala Millor there’s Safari-Zoo. Here you can take a mini-train to meet the elephants, giraffes and lions.
Day trips to Palma
An hour’s drive gets you to the capital, Palma. First things first – the sights. So, that will be the castle and huge Gothic cathedral taken care of. If you want it, culture comes courtesy of the art galleries and museums. As for shops, you’re surrounded by them, but the designer boutiques on Avinguda Juame lll will start things off.
