About Santa Ponsa

Santa Ponsa is perhaps most famous for being the location where Jaume I landed in 1229 before beginning his conquest of Mallorca, with the spot he came ashore marked with a large stone cross to commemorate the occasion. Not only has the town grown in popularity as a holiday destination for tourists, but a surprising number of expats have also come and made their homes in the area, giving it a unique culture and atmosphere.

Best Time to Visit

The summer season is the best time to visit Santa Ponsa if you’re looking for warm weather, with high temperatures between June and August with very few chances of rain. If you prefer milder weather, then the spring or the start of autumn will be ideal, whilst those who want to experience the town with as few other tourists as possible should travel between November and March to enjoy the off-season.

Best Things To Do In

The top way to spend your time in Santa Ponsa is with a trip to the beach, where you can enjoy sunbathing, swimming in the sea, dining at one of the cafes along the promenade, or enjoy giving watersports like paddleboarding and kayaking a go. The proximity of marinas to the town also means that boat trips are a very popular way to spend a holiday, often involving snorkelling excursions as well.

Nightlife in Santa Ponsa is quite well known, so if you’re a fan of sampling local beers and dancing the night away, the town is well equipped for you to enjoy that. Jungle Parc is an outdoor adventure playground suitable for both adults and children which is a fun way to spend an afternoon, making your way through a tree canopy via high wires and ropes.

Best Places To Go In

Santa Ponsa Beach is one of the best places to go in Santa Ponsa if you want to enjoy the warm weather, with a Blue Flag rating for cleanliness and plenty of beachfront facilities that mean you can easily spend the whole day on the sand and in the water.

The main strip of the town, Ramon de Montcada, is definitely worth a visit if you’re looking for somewhere to eat, drink or shop, or is a great place to start a night out if you’re in Santa Ponsa in the evening.

What our guests say

Fantastic home for a fantastic stay. We loved our time here and would recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing time away. Top tips from us - don’t stress about parking, the roads are very narrow and parking isn’t easy so use the car park on the way in to Pollensa. It’s only a 5 minute walk and is very safe. There is a lovely bakery just 2 minute walk away on the main road in and not far from the chemist. Enjoy!

Great villa, comfortable beds, clean and the welcome pack was really appreciated. Good location and the pool and table tennis went down very well with everyone.

Charming and lovely townhouse in the old part of Pollenca. Recently refurbished to a very high standard. House is really well equipped. ACs in all the rooms meant it was never too hot even in the August. High walls give a lot of privacy and also make the sun more bearable. Pool was lovely. We quickly got used to parking in the side streets around the house, but it is also possible to park slightly outside the town. We used a car to go Puerto Pollenca to get to the fantastic beaches. Their Internet was good enough for video calls for work Communication with the manager was easy and quick. Would clearly recommend and also go back.

"The villa was very well presented, spotlessly clean, and surprisingly well equipped – it even had a tea-pot! The welcome pack was probably the best and most comprehensive I’ve seen!.. Pollenca is a good base if you want to have good access to the coast without being in a coastal resort."

We had a great stay and the communication with Colin was brilliant. The villa is very clean and spacious and the beds are comfortable. The pool area is fantastic and the steps in are great for children. The pool was also really warm considering it’s not heated and the view of the mountains is fantastic. Lovely quiet area but a 25 min walk into the square in Pollenca and 5 min drive to the Port. Lovely area and lots of great restaurants and beaches nearby. We were a family of 8 (7 adults and one child) and would definitely like to return :)
