Santa Margalida Villas
Although a mere 7kms from the resort hotels and glorious sandy beaches strung between Alcudia and Can Picafort, the small, gentille Mallorcian town of Santa Margalida, is just far enough removed from the coast to remain off the beaten track as far as tourists are concerned. As a consequence the town has remained in a sleepy time warp, happily servicing the local farming community and really letting its hair down twice a year for its Saints Days. The first, on August 15th is the festival to the Virgin Mary heralded by fireworks followed by the Fiesta of La Beata on the first Sunday of September when all sorts of exciting mayhem takes place!
The old main square, with tables and chairs scattered beneath shady plane tress, is impressively spacious with the usual selection of tapas bars, as well as a genuine pizzeria and an upmarket coffee shop offering cakes, tartes and sugary ensaimadas. The town has banks, butchers, bakers and shops a plenty, as well as a small but well stocked supermarket handily situated on the road in from Cana Joana! Just out of town on the Can Picafort road is an excellent restaurant in an old manor house, whilst the low key resort of Son Serra de Marina is no more than 10 minutes by car and has some of the best beaches in the area as well as a number of good seafood restaurants.
The Natural Reserve of Son Real offers lovely walking and cycling in this protected area as well as a walking route to the fascinating Son Balou Necropolis, which is also the gateway to some wonderful quiet sandy beaches.
For more action, just over a 10 minute drive away is the resort of Can Picafort (Blue Flag Beach) with a superb beach and plenty of family entertainment, as well as a huge selection of restaurants and cuisines!
The location of Santa Margalida puts visitors within a radius of some 20 kims of 5 excellent Golf Courses.
