Paguera – You can appreciate it at once since your first visit to Mallorca or after many years visiting the island. Souvenirs, shops for the residents, hotels, restaurants and much more. Everything at hand.
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.

Santa Ponsa is remarkable for its contrasts. The large sand beach that dominates the tourist enclave, where we can find a bit of everything (bars and restaurants right beside where we can have lunch and dinner or collect lots of good memories) and up to three golf courses – Golf Santa Ponsa I, Golf Santa Ponsa II and Golf Santa Ponsa III – as well as a wonderful marina, luxury houses and apartments, shops, boutiques, offices and supermarkets.
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.
News on 19th December, 2010: To 24th December you can enjoy the typical Christmas street market that takes place on the exhibition site El Molino, in Calvià (Santa Ponsa.) A festive market where people meet to enjoy the Christmas spirit. This street market offers us all kinds of culinary delicacies, sweet and toys, as well as shows and attractions for children.
Today, we would like to introduce you the golf course Son Termens that was opened to the public on May, 1998 and is located in a wonderful valley that belongs to Bunyola. Son Termens is situated at 10 kilometres of Palma.
The course offers a beautiful view of Palma from its location at the foothills of the Sierra de Tramuntana – the Tramontana Mountains –, although it is important to highlight that this is one of the places of the Balearic Islands which is more blended into the natural environment.
Son Termens is surrounded by wooded mountains and slopes, without any buildings around with the exception of the club that was built following the Majorcan style.
The 18 holes of the course are distributed all over the mountainous spot. The round, extended along the hillocks and hollows, has a medium difficulty.
Son Termens is a place with a privileged location, a balanced ecosystem and a nice calmness during summer months; just for professionals and amateurs to enjoy training their strokes. Its restaurant is also an attractive place thanks to the views, but it is known not only among the golfers, but also for its good cooking. In general terms, this golf course will offer a warm welcome to the visitors.
The form of horse racing known as Trotting, or “Trot” in the local Mallorquín is one of the most important sports in Mallorca after soccer: Even on this small Island its regular fans number more than 25,000! Every weekend a good number of these enthusuiasts and of course the horses’ gather together at the racetrack or Hipodrome to enjoy the excitement of the races. When the pistol shot cracks and the horses leap forward the crowds vibrate with emotion during each and every race! Everybody has his favourite horse to which he happily shouts encouragement and of course, on which he bets!
Regardless it´s not that much money can be won on these races it’s the love of the Trotons, a noble breed of horse raised to Trotting and only to be found in the Balearics that the fans, with a pure love for their sport, are dedicated to. There are a multitude of stables, mainly in the east of Mallorca, in which these enthusiastic sportsmen prepare their horses for the race at the track.
The most important race within this sport is The Grand National Prize, indeed the greatest and most prestigious race of the year, which normally takes place on the third weekend of May. Only horses born in Spain, of three years of age and who have never won a race before are eligible. The winner of the Grand Prize each year will enter the annals of Trot History!
On the Island there are two great Hipodromes dedicated to Trot – one in Palma de Mallorca and the other in Manacor.
