Apartments in the south of Mallorca
The south of the Balearic Islands owes its extraordinary popularity as a holiday region both to its picturesque beaches and to the idyllic landscape of olive groves and windmills. You will find what you are looking for in a modern and centrally located holiday home, especially in Es Trenc, which has one of the most beautiful beaches on the island. At least as beautiful is your stay in an apartment in Porto Petro, where you can enjoy the view of the natural harbour from the terrace. Those who prefer a vacation rental in historical surroundings will find Felanitx with its medieval architecture to be the perfect place. Other well-known resorts with a wide range of accommodation in all price ranges are Cala d'Or, Campos, Cala Pi, Santanyi and Colonia de Sant Jordi.
Holidays in the South of Mallorca
Travelers and Activities
In the south of Majorca there are numerous possibilities for a holiday with child and cone. The absolute highlight for the little guests are of course the innumerable beaches, which with their fine sand and the shallow slope into the sea are ideal for building sand castles and splashing around in the surf. The beaches of Sa Rapita and Es Trenc, far away from built-up areas, are particularly recommended. On the other hand, the visit of the Castell se Santueri and the traditional saltworks of Santanyi is much more adventurous. The family fun is completed by a bath in the natural thermal spring Colonia Sant Jordi, where the Romans also bathed.Smell and taste Mallorca
Wine plays an important role in the south of Mallorca. After all, the vines produce some of Spain's best wines, which are even known in North America. Wine lovers can therefore look forward to an exciting discovery tour, which will take you along the Mallorcan Wine Route straight to the cellars of renowned wineries such as Vi d'auba, Son Alegre and 4 Kilos Vinicola. But wine alone is not enough, because every good drop of wine needs a good meal. The best way to do this is to visit one of the many small restaurants where the locals are also welcome and taste dishes such as braised rabbit, a traditional paella or rustic specialities such as "Pa amb Oli".

Things to know
The south of Mallorca is worth a trip all year round due to its mild climate. While nature lovers get their money's worth during the almond blossom in January and February, active holidaymakers can book their vacation rental for the period between March and October. For those who want to use their holidays mainly for bathing in the Mediterranean Sea, the high summer months June to September are recommended, even though the Mediterranean Sea cracks the magic 25 degree mark.Regular events
The start of the event year in the south of Mallorca is marked by the feast of Saint Anthony on 17 January in Santanyi, which is also known as the "magic night" among the locals due to the numerous nocturnal fires. The "Festival International de Musica", which also takes place in Santanyi, continues with regular concerts from April to September. Shortly afterwards the "International Jazz Festival" in Cala d'Or follows in June. The round of great festivities is rounded off by the Apricot Fair in Porreres, where music, folk dances and countless tastings of local apricot specialities await you.

This secluded spot is best reached by rental car in Mallorca's south in Cala Figuera: park at the nature park's car park and walk downhill with plenty of provisions for 15 minutes. You will be rewarded with a beautiful bay framed by rugged cliffs and a ruin that makes the heart of every individualist and tranquil seeker beat faster. Don't forget your diving goggles!
