Son Servera, Majorca, Spain
Son Servera is located on the eastern coast of Majorca, set inland from the resort of Cala Bona.
Not far from the town of Son Servera are some great sandy beaches such as those at Cala Bona, Cala Millor, Es Ribell and Sa Marjal.
There are two main beaches in Cala Bona, both are mainly sandy with areas of shingle and are around 300-metres in length and 40-metres wide. Facilities on the beaches are good with sun-loungers and parasols for hire, lifeguards in high season and a number of bars and restaurants along the pedestrian promenade.
The longest stretch of sand is at Cala Millor with over 1.5-kilometres of fine clean sand and an average width of 50-metres. A long promenade lined with shops, bars and restaurants runs the length of the beach and into neighbouring resort of Cala Bona.
Es Ribell is the smallest sandy beach just a few kilometres from Son Servera, a quiet beach with little in the way of facilities and popular with locals.
Cala sa Marjal is the furthest away, this sandy stretch of beach is around 200-metres in length. There are limited facilities though there is a beach bar and sun-loungers available to hire.
Things to do
For golfers there are two exceptionally good championship golf courses in the area, Pula is the closest with 18-holes and Golf Son Servera which has 9-holes.
The Caves of Arta are situated just outside the resort of Canyamel to the north, alternatively to the south in Porto Cristo, an old fishing village, are the islands better known; Coves del Drach.
Two historical towns worth a visit are Capdepera and Arta, both of which feature a fortress and make an interesting alternative to lazing on the beach.
