Best Places to Buy Mallorca Property
Palma has the benefits of a cosmopolitan city mixed with an old world charm. Palma is easily reached from the airport (only 12 minutes by car) and located directly by the sea with the largest marina on the island. The Old Town and Calatrava districts are filled with local culture and history. Santa Catalina (to the west of Mallorca) is more of a bohemian neighbourhood with many great cafes, restaurants and bars. The area of Portixol and Molinar are only 2 km from the city centre. These Small Towns were previously small fishing villages which have now turned into charming seaside neighbourhoods, ideal if you like peace and quiet.
Portals Nous/Costa den Blanes
Portals Nous is a small relaxed town west of Palma and only a short walk from the glizy marina of Puerto Portals. The town retains a great sense of community in all seasons. From Portals Nous, you can access two beaches, a small bay called Cala Bendinat, and the larger, more well-known Cala Portals Nous. This bigger beach is connected to the port, where you’ll find a marina full of beautiful yachts and fine dining options.
Andratx/Port de Andratx
The Tramuntana mountain range begins here. The southwest of the island has a lovely countryside with a mountain background. The port is small but offers many great restaurants, bars and shops. Despite some modernization, Port de Andratx has maintained its fishing port charm. In summer the port is bustling and winter is quite quiet.
Soller/Port de Soller/Deia/Valldemossa
Soller town is found at the base of the magnificent Tramuntana mountains. Saturday is market day here and it attracts people from around the island. The town square buzzes with life on Saturdays.
Deia is gorgeously located on terraced slopes that rise up from the clear blue waters of the Mediterranean, with an impressive backdrop of the Teix mountain which gives Deia an almost mystical appeal. The signposted walk down through the tranquil lemon groves to Cala Deia and the pretty shingle beach backed by jagged cliffs, is an absolute delight here. It’s a wonderful place to go for a swim.
Valldemossa is located high above the coast and its monastery, cobbled lanes, beautiful old stone houses and lush countryside attract people from all over the world to this stunning part of Mallorca. If you want history, Valldemossa has it in spades. It was here that Santa Catalina Tomas was born into a humble household. In 1792 she was beatified by the Pope and every year Valldemossa, and many other places in Mallorca, celebrate great fiestas in her memory.
Pollensa/Port de Pollensa/Alcanada/Bonaire
Pollensa was the first to promote tourism on the island. The stunning landscape and multitude of colours, are reasons why Pollensa became the favourite place for artists to visit or settle in. Pollensa is very cultural, there are many galleries and typical artisan shops such as Galerias Vicenç and Casa Maria, where they look after the traditional family artcraft, the textile design and the special embroideries.
Alcanada and Bonaire – are small, and quiet areas in the outskirts of the well-known bay of Alcúdia, on the Mallorcan north coast. Alcanada and Bonaire have great attractions for people seeking a quiet base, within a reasonable range of known facilities such as city life, beaches and restaurants. Alcanada and Bonaire probably best of all brings memories to a typical residential neighborhood in the exclusive end, with the white house facades.
