If you are not familiar with Santa Ponsa,it is one of the hottest holiday destinations in Mallorca, boasting a beach that is 500 metres wide and over 1,300 metres long, making it the one of the largest on the island. It is situated in the South West of the island and is only 20km from Palma. Popular with Brits for over 40 years, it also attracts an international crowd, especially the Germans, and is noted for its’ safe waters and lots of local restaurants and bars. Indeed, the water is shallow and calm,and there are all sorts of water sports such as Kayaking, paddle boats, water skiing, and even paragliding that you can hire right on the beach.
Behind the beach is a long boardwalk which connects with a small woodland of pine trees and a grass area which is a great place to settle for a picnic lunch. The boardwalk has lots of restaurants serving everything from Mallorcan food and locally caught fish, to Italian, burgers and fries, and there are lots of shops and hotels also.
Talking of food, there is a starter called Pimientos de Padrón which is small green peppers fried in olive oil and rock salt. Have a bowl of aioli with them – a mayonnaise with lots of garlic – and pick up the peppers by the stalk, dipping them into the aioli. Don’t eat the stalk! Delicious.
Then there is another local dish, Frito Mallorquín, which consist of liver, and sometimes kidneys, in olive oil with chilli, garlic, fennel tops, potatoes, red peppers, sometimes peas or artichokes, and also black pudding. If you are not so keen on offal then you should try the Frito Marisco which is based around seafood and has no offal.
There are two marinas nearby offering yacht charters, boat trips, dolphin watching, and even snorkelling. There are also several golf courses around Santa Ponsa.
