Parc Natural del Llevant

If you chose to come to this part of Mallorca I am sure you are very aware why: We do have some of the most amazing and wild beaches on the island. But for those who are in a mood for some easy chill beaches, don’t worry there is some of those too.

Probably one of the nicest beaches around is Cala Agulla. Our accomodations is only a hop and a skip away. I personally love going for a morning run, swimsuit underneath and go for a dip just before coming home for breakfast. For those who want to go and spend the morning, afternoon or day at the beach, you can either cycle or drive down as there is a big parking spot right by the beach. It does get crowded in the summer so early birds get going to catch your spot on the beach.

Cala Mesquida is my all time favorite for nearby beaches. It is just as perfect as it can get. Big beach surrounded by sand dunes and rolling hills. The water doesn’t get more blue then that. It is safe to go with children but beware of strong currents. The beach does count on Lifeguards making sure everyone is safe. Help us keep our paradise clean, if you are packing any lunch try to not use plastic, should you need tupperwares we are more then happy to provide you some.

If it is off season another amazing little spot is Son Moll. This small beach has a beautiful promenade along the seaside: towards Cala Ratjada there are various restaurants and walking in the opposite direction you have little spots by the rocks that are great for a swim and soak up the sun.

Canyamel is probably your best bet for kid friendly beaches. It’s a 10 minute drive.

Please see the link below to different routes around the area for those who want to combine beaches and hiking.

Markets

We love our markets and want to let you know when and where they are on. Best news for you is that one of them happens at your doorstep. Every Wednesday morning the weekly local market is held at Plaza Orient, right in front of the apartments. You will find nice fresh local goods and if you are not vegetarian don’t forget to order your “Pollo a l’ast”.

If you missed out because you are only coming for the weekend, don’t worry Cala Ratjada holds one every Saturday morning at the main square by Carrer Castellet and Carrer Elionor Servera. You will be able to find fresh farmers products, clothes and other trinkets.

Artá,which is a 10 minute drive away, is very famous for 2 markets. One of them is the weekly market on Tuesdays at the Plaça del Conqueridor. Don’t miss out on it. It is so lively and bubbly it’s worth even if you don’t want to buy anything, don’t forget to make your stop for an amazing morning coffee at Cafe Parisien. (Carrer de Ciutat, 18).

If you love digging around in second hand markets, that is the second market you have to go to. It is held every first Sunday of the month in the same main sqaure Plaça del Conqueridor.

I hope you enjoy markets just as much as we do. If you need any further information please drop us a line and we will be happy to help you.

Cyclist heaven

I can give you several reasons to chose Capdepera as your starting point for a training week. Picture waking up in a calm historical village with an amazing castle view from your window and your bike waiting for you downstairs ready to go anywhere you want to take her to. You can chose if you want to keep it mild, mellow ups and downs through beautiful countryside. Want to get those Ironman legs going? We are not to far from Alcudias “training grounds”. It’s your choice. Once you are done with your tour how about finishing it off with a nice cold beer under the shady trees in the main square of Capdepera, or go for a quick swim at any of the beaches close by like Cala Agulla, Son Moll, Es carregador, Font de sa cala and others.

We offer 4 free parking spots inside the building to keep you from flogging the bike up the stairs to the apartments (please make sure to contact us to make sure we reserve them for you before you book your stay).

Here are some routes you can check out.
