Lucas Fox guide to East Mallorca

The East coast of Mallorca is an area of outstanding beauty and is one of the most preserved coastlands of the island. There are eight main coastal villages – Arta, Petra, Portocristo, Portocolom, Felanitx, Manacor, Costa de los Pinos and Canyamel. These beachside villages are defined by their sandy, pristine beaches, breathtaking countryside and easy access to leisure activities from golf to sailing, hiking to scuba diving.
An ideal boating area, the coastline is peppered with small beaches (calas) stretching from Cap de Ferrutx near Cala Ratjada in the north of the island to Punta Negra in the south. Many of these are only accessible by sea.
The greatest concentration of these coves which are easily accessible lie to the south of Cala d’Or. Here you can also discover the national park of Mondragó and the beaches at Cala Figuera and Cala Santanyi. Inland from the coast rural life continues in the small villages unaffected by tourism. The biggest tourist development is the resort of Cala Millor which has long been a favourite for German visitors attracted by its fine, long, sandy beach. Neighbouring Cala Bona has also proved popular among foreign visitors. Porto Cristo is one of Mallorca`s prettiest coastal towns and is also home to the Caves of Drach and the lesser known Caves of Hams. Golf enthusiasts are not short of choice along this coast. Superb courses can be found at Vall D’Or, Capdepera, Canyamel, Pula and Son Servera. Capdepera also has ferries running to Menorca regularly.

With regards to purchasing property in East Mallorca, villas in Canyamel are highly sought-after for the resort-like setting in a location that has been classified as an ‘area of special nature interest’, while properties in Portocolom and Felanitx are in the heart of the wine-producing region of this Balearic island paradise.
