Holidays to San Agustin serve up peace and quiet, while nearby Palma Nova sorts out the nightlife. And Mallorca's capital Palma is just 15 minutes' drive away.
A well-connected spot
Sant Agusti is just a 15-minute drive west of Majorca's capital, Palma. It’s a popular holiday home spot for Brits and who can blame them, when it's got a little bit of everything – from fine restaurants and good bars to great Med views. To top things off, you’re also 15 minutes' drive from the buzzing nightlife of Palma Nova and party-hard Magaluf. And a 10-minute walk gets you to Cala Mayor and one of the island’s best beaches.
Sant Agusti doesn’t have a beach itself, but there’s a great one, with watersports on offer, over at sister resort, Cala Mayor. This place even gets the royal seal of approval, with the Spanish King’s summer residence, Marivent Palace, at the far end of the bay. Meanwhile, Sant Agusti has its own little marina – a working fishing harbour, as well as a hangout for posh yachts.
Close to Palma
A short drive from here gets you to Palma, where there’s the massive Gothic cathedral to check out. Then you’ve got a castle, a 13th-century Arab palace, an art museum and Pueblo Espanol to pick from – the last one's a sort of architectural theme park with replicas of some of Spain’s top sights, including the Alhambra. And for refreshments, there are the top-notch tapas bars of the La Llonja district to dip into.
