Santa Ponsa Travel Guide
Shopping Santa Ponsa has a number of supermarkets (including one large one), a good choice of souvenir shops, stalls, some designer goods, jewellery stores and other essential amenities such as banks for holiday visitors to make use of. A better shopping selection is available in Palma and the closest weekly market takes place on Wednesdays in Andratx.
Restaurants There are a large number of different restaurants in Santa Ponsa, offering visitors plenty of variety and options for all budgets. Some restaurants and tapas bars offer traditional Spanish cuisine, and there is Indian, Chinese, Italian and more to sample. International staples like burgers and pizzas are always easy to find.
Nightlife There is a varied nightlife at the holiday resort of Santa Ponsa, with karaoke bars, theme pubs, live music venues, and several clubs and discos. Although not on the same scale as Palma or Magaluf, there is still a lot on offer besides hotel entertainment. Those intent on partying can always make the short trip to Palma, which boasts the best nightlife on the island.
Activities There is plenty to keep holidaymakers amused and occupied when stepping off the beach. Santa Ponsa boasts three golf courses, as well as tennis, water sports, scuba diving, horse riding, and sports grounds for skateboarding and football. There are regular bus services to neighbouring towns and resorts, and excursions to local attractions. There are also regular boat trips along the coastline and these usually stop so that passengers can enjoy a dip in the sea. A nearby popular attraction is Aqualand in Magaluf. The biggest fiesta on the island takes place in Santa Ponsa in September and runs for 10 days. The Fiesta of Rei en Jaume commemorates the defeat of the Moors by Jaime I, and the festival culminates in a mock battle between the Christians and the Moors.
Negatives The beaches can get very crowded in season and parking can be hard to come by. This is not the place to come for peace and quiet.
