Holidays to Costa de los Pinos are the ideal choice for lounging by scenic beaches, sipping a quiet cocktail and dining on tasty tapas.

Peaceful seas

Costa de los Pinos is on the east coast of the Spanish Balearic Island of Majorca, making it a handy base for exploring the island. With a blanket of pine-covered hills, a relaxed shingle beach and gentle waters, it's spot-on for families or those looking for a little peace and quiet.

Drinks and nibbles

When tummies rumble, visit a family-run restaurant for seafood paella or crispy, gooey-in-the-middle croquettes. It's less than 10 minutes' drive to Cala Bona and Cala Millor, if you want more in the way of bars and places to eat – think staple Spanish tapas, plus international favourites.

Lazy days

When on the island, hit the beach. The sand-and-pebble stretch boasts calm waves and tucked-away spots for picnics in the shade. You could also play nine holes at the local Son Servera Golf Club, or take a trip out to sea in a glass-bottom boat to spy on resident marine critters.

Explore the island

For a day out, it's only a 20-minute drive to Arta. This mountain town's jam-packed with shops and restaurants under the shadow of an impressive 14th-century castle. Considered the Eighth Wonder of the World by some, the underground Caves of Drach are a 25-minute drive away.
