Santa Ponca Holiday Apartments - for endless days of sea, sun and sand
For a relaxing Majorcan holiday getaway filled with days of summer sand, sparkling sea and vibrant nights out look no further than Santa Ponça. In the southwestern parts of Majorca, only 18 kilometers from the capital of Palma, lies the stunning holiday resort of Santa Ponça. Breaking 300 years of Moorish rule, King James the First conquered the island after landing in Santa Ponça. Following King James’ annexation, the island became part of the Kingdom of Aragon and was later conquered by the Kingdom of Spain. At the entrance to the marina a cross has been erected at the spot where James landed and every September a fiesta is held where the ‘Moors’ battle the ‘Christians’ in commemoration of the historical event. A pop concert is also held with a grand fireworks display.
Rent Santa Ponca Villa Rentals for the perfect summer holiday
Santa Ponça is mainly a summer resort with its peak season between May and October. The resort is very popular among the Irish, German, Dutch and British with many owning holiday apartments and villas. This also provides excellent Santa Ponça holiday rentals for everyone else. Santa Ponça is home to one 9-hole golf course called Santa Ponça III and two 18-hole courses named Santa Ponça I and II. The latter course’s 18th green is shaped like the island of Majorca and a PGA European Tour event was hosted by it. For the more adventurous, book an excursion to the Caves of Drach in Porto Cristo. Here you can explore the three main caves of Cueva Blanca (the White Cave), Cueva Negra (the Black Cave) and Cueva Luis Salvator. You then reach La ventana (the Window) though which you travel onto Lake Martel, one of the world’s largest underground lakes.
For the beach lovers, the main and “Little Beach” provide an excellent chance to soak up some rays and enjoy the sparkling sea. There are pinewoods adjacent to the main beach, which is the perfect compliment to the sandy beach on hot days. Hire parasols and sunbeds or simply stretch out on your beach towel. Take a swim in the ocean, snorkel, hire a pedalo or, if you are feeling more adventurous, enjoy a jetski ride. There are a few facilities available at small sandy coves of Little Beach and both beaches are within close proximity to most Santa Ponça villas. Other fun things to do away from the Santa Ponça holiday rentals include: relaxing pools, slides, chutes and water activities at Western Water Park and Aqualand; mini golf; go-karting; sumptuous dining; and fun live night-time entertainment.
