During the winter, Santa Ponsa is a place only for its residents – foreigners and Majorcan people – that keeps its charm, like Paguera, located in the nearest bay. We can have the feeling of missing school or being offstage. Then comes March, the summer is here yet, and suddenly, we return to be some of the privileged who enjoy Santa Ponsa.

The Paseo Marítimo – the promenade – like the one from Magaluf – has made it a little more difficult to drive on the area, but also more attractive. The beaches of La Romana, Palmira and La Torá, which have convenient approaches every 100 metres from the Paseo Marítimo, are watchful from the first coffee to the sunset… and as if that was not enough, the Basilea mountain affords the tourist the opportunity to make numerous trips, especially during the low season when the heat does not spoil the fun. During the high season there are also a lot of shopping and leisure activities.

Situated in the natural zone of “Es Salobrar”, more than 170 bird species float over the sea and white sands of this little corner of land, where the time seems to stand still. The two subterranean springs with different temperatures have been originating investigations and myths since 1.827, giving even the name to this place: “Es Trenc”, in catalan “the cleat”.
When you walk through its fine sand and submerge in its crystal-clear water, you can for sure disengage from the daily routine – and if want so, also from the bathing suit, because the central part of the beach is nudist. On the rest of the beach you´ll find different kiosks and during the summer and week-ends parasols, sunlounchers and many residents, enjoying this marvelous beach. You just have to see it..
Actually, the tempest ceased, and the ship was driven to the little natural harbour of Portals Vells, where the sailors discovered several caves. They decided to place in one of them the statue of their Madonna, carved an altar into the rock and decorated the walls with religious inscriptions and drawings.
At first the Virgin’s statue was worshiped only by sailors and fishermen, but later on the caves became a place of pilgrimage for the citizens of Calvia and the surrounding villages. During the 18th century, the Madonna statue had to be transferred to the church of Calvia, in order to protect it from the enormous boulder that had fallen from the ceiling of the cave. Nowadays, the statue can be admired in the church of Portals Vells. The Caves still preserve the inscriptions and paintings of those rescued fishermen as well as a wonderful view on the charming Bay of Portals Vells.
Here you can find shops, restaurants, bars, etc.
