Lying on the picturesque east coast of Majorca is the lovely beach resort of Sa Coma. This enchanting resort has several quality 4 star hotels and highly regarded apartment blocks. Sa Coma’s sandy beach, good accommodation and friendly bars attract the family market. However, Sa coma is equally popular with couples predominantly from Britain and Germany looking for that relaxing beach holiday.
A relatively new 5 star hotel the Protur Biomar Gran Hotel is already voted by Trip Advisor the best hotel in the resort and in the top 10 hotels (out of over 1,000) on the island. As with most 5 stars it has an extensive Spa, modern rooms and facilities and an excellent restaurant and wine list (I’m happy to report that I’ve sampled!).
During my stay I was happy just to ‘chillax’ on the beach or lay by the pool but if you like to be a little more active, plenty of people were hiring bikes or making the walk up to the Castle and Cafe at Punts de n’amer, where you can enjoy superb views and reward yourself for the trek up there with a refreshing drink. A trip to the adjacent resort of Cala Millor is worth the effort and provides for an alternative evening out.
If you are hiring a car there are plenty of hidden coves to explore, you can drive for 20 minutes to the plesant resort of Cala Ratjada, the harbour here is where in mid afternoon you can enjoy watching the fishing boats return and unload their catches. Or drive 10 minutes inland to the weekly market at Son Servera, a little further away to the south are the ‘not to be missed’ Caves of Drach and resort of Porto Cristo.
All in all a great choice for couples or families looking to relax and unwind, with an excellent sandy beach and quality accommodation.
