ISLAND TOUR - TRAMUNTANA VILLAGES AND VIEWPOINTS IN A CLASSIC CAR

Majorca is a magical island, full of uniquely beautiful, picturesque little villages, steeped in history, just waiting for you to discover them.

Hop into one of our classical cars and enjoy the breeze while you drive through Portocolom, the last fishing village on the island, with one of the most natural ports in the Balearic Islands

Very near Sa Creu Nova you’ll also be able to enjoy the dreamlike scenery of the Es Trenc Salt Flats, declared an Area of Special Scenic and Rural Interest where our sea salt is formed.

One option is to begin the route from Andratx, on the southernmost limit of the island. The winding mountain road Ma-10 follows all the western coast, offering a spectacular drive in itself. The road leads to Sóller, passing through the villages of Estellencs, Valldemossa and Deià on the way.

The road leads to Sóller, passing through the villages of Estellencs, Valldemossa and Deiá on the way. From Sóller, you can drive up to the village of Fornalutx, considered one of the prettiest in the world.

ENJOY MAJORCA FROM THE SEA

Whilst spending time on the island, water activities are a must. If you want to really enjoy the Mediterranean sea surrounding Majorca, we can arrange unique and personalised experiences for you to make your holiday as complete as possible:

1 - Sailing - we can offer you a trip on an exclusive Llaut - a typical Majorcan boat - or a luxury yacht with a menu included. Or, if you would rather get to know two islands in one go, we can organise an excursion to the neighbouring island of Cabrera, which is a national biosphere reserve, the beauty of which absolutely stuns all visitors.

2 - Water sports - If you would prefer to enjoy the Mediterranean sea in a more active manner, we can arrange a kayak or paddle surf excursion, or even a snorkelling or diving activity, so you can immerse yourself in the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean. 

PALMA GOLDEN MILE

If you’d like to take the opportunity of a stroll through the centre of Palma to do some shopping, you’re in luck.

The best and most exclusive luxury and fashion brands worldwide are concentrated in the space of a few metres known as “the Palma Golden Mile”.

Between the Paseo del Borne and Avenida Jaume III, in an area bustling with activity and many hotels, is where you’ll find what is known as the Golden Mile in Palma, where lovers of shopping and luxury brands can discover the most exquisite shops, which make for a very entertaining shopping tour.

Carolina Herrera, Hugo Boss and Louis Vuitton are just some of the most exclusive brands that line the boulevard, making Palma one of the neuralgic points for shopping worldwide.  

Leather is another of the products that has always been typical of Mallorcan crafts. On Calle Unión, we come across the company Carmina, whose craftsmen/women have been making leather shoes since 1866 and whose shoes are sent all over the world, daily.

To finish our tour around the area you can’t miss out on a visit to the espadrille shop La Concepció, where you’ll find a wide variety of shoes and bags, all made with typical Mallorcan materials, such as esparto grass or rafia.  

THE BEST BEACHES IN MALLORCA

If what you like is enjoying the sun and the beach, at Sa Creu Nova we'd like to suggest some of the best beaches and coves on the island:

We’ll start with the wonderful beach of Es Trenc, a beach boasting white sand and turquoise water, just 8 minutes from our hotel and where you can enjoy one of the best sunsets on the island before returning to our hotel.

Located in the southeastern area of the island, approximately six kilometres from the village of Santanyí we come across Caló d’es Moro, a beautiful little cove with crystal clear water, which is the perfect choice for a quick swim.

Another option is Cala Llombards, a lovely cove with white sand which lies between cliffs and which boasts one of the most emblematic, natural monuments in Santanyí and the whole island, very close by, “Es Pontàs”.  

For any of these options we can offer you a transfer from our hotel and a gourmet picnic so that you can enjoy the whole experience. (Subject to booking and and availability) 

VISIT THE MARKETS OF MALLORCA

The authentic tradition in Mallorca is experienced in the markets of the different municipalities on the island. Artisans and farmers exhibit their zero-mile products for all those visitors who love local products and proximity trade. In order to enjoy the most native and traditional products of the island, we have prepared a selection for you to enjoy the true essence of market trading in Mallorca.

In Campos, on Thursday and Saturday mornings, you can visit the traditional market held on the same street as our hotel, where you’ll find lots of food products, plants and flowers, clothes, accessories and gifts.

In Palma, we suggest a visit to the Mercat de l’Olivar and the Mercat de Santa Catalina markets - both are bustling meeting points for residents and tourists alike and an experience you can’t miss. At both markets you’ll find fresh island produce brought directly from the “Lonja” fish market in Palma, which is what we use at our restaurants to ensure maximum quality: “Cap Roig” (red scorpion), “Gallo de San Pedro” (John Dory), “Llampuga” (mahi-mahi)….. 

In the municipalities of Santa Maria, Andratx and Sineu you can find their open-air market and organic products from the Mallorcan countryside such as fruit and vegetables. You can also buy authentic local products, including wine, food products - oil, cheese, olives - and hand-woven Mallorcan clothes or fabrics.

ART AND HISTORY IN PALMA

Culture lovers meet at Es Baluard - Palma's Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art - located in the city centre and built inside a Renaissance wall.

Inside, you can admire a collection of 20th and 21st century art and from its terraces you can enjoy spectacular views of the city and the bay.

Another monument we recommend and which forms part of the culture of the city of Palma is Bellver Castle, conceived as a royal residence and which, in 1717, became a military prison for numerous French soldiers and officers. Located in the middle of a forest, it is currently the City History Museum and offers wonderful views of the bay of Palma.

For this experience we can offer you a transfer from our hotel, on request and subject to availability.

*Tickets for access to the monuments are not included in our experience.  

MALLORCAN CULTURE

Mallorca exudes art and there are many artists and craftsmen who have been inspired by the island.

We have prepared two options for discovering art on the island: The first is a historical tour of Santanyí followed by a visit to the studio of the Mallorcan painter Llorenç Garrit, who will explain the evolution of his art, while delighting the audience with a tasty organic wine and immersing them in his latest work eNclaveDecolor, inside his workshop.

Another proposed experience is to visit the Galería Major art gallery, which was founded in Pollença in 1990 and which promotes contemporary art, as well as national and international, well known and upcoming artists.

Amongst others, you’ll find pieces by José Manuel Broto, Susana Solano and Miguel Angel Campano, all holders of National Plastic Arts Prizes. With an annual program of about seven exhibitions, the gallery offers a platform for artists to present their most recent works of art.

For these experiences we can offer you a transfer from our hotel upon request and subject to availability. 

*Tickets are not included in our experience.  

TENNIS AND PADDLE ON YOUR VISIT TO SA CREU NOVA

Tennis and paddle fans will be able to combine their favourite sport with their time relaxing at Sa Creu Nova.

The Campos Tennis Paddle Club installations are located just 3 minutes by car from our Petit Palais.

A more than attractive option to make your stay with us as complete as possible. Don't hesitate to contact us to make your court reservation or for your private lessons.

VISIT TO AUBOCASSA OLIVE OIL

This experience will immerse us in the history, culture and production of the distinctive Mallorcan olive oil.

We begin this oleoexperience at the Aubocassa to learn about the history of its Extra Virgin Olive Oils, where we will walk through the olive groves to discover the secrets of the manufacturing process in the oil mill, where the oil is made with the help of state-of-the-art technology.

The visit culminates at the select Aubocassa Olive Oil and Wine Bar, where the gold liquid produced by the property is tasted.

For this experience we can offer you a transfer from our hotel upon request and availability.

* Tickets are not included in our experience.

VISIT TO ES FANGAR WINE CELLAR

In order to get to know the Mallorcan wine-making scene, we suggest a visit to the cellar ‘Es Fangar’ in Felanitx.

Considered one of the most modern in the world, it’s located in one of the most beautiful settings on the island and produces Mediterranean wine that stands out because of its quality, personality and elegance.

The quality of the grape and the biological treatment of the wines by the ‘Es Fangar’ cellar, that belongs to the Pla i Llevant Protected Designation of Origin, is what sets it apart and gives it such huge value.

For this experience, we propose two options:

*The first (about 3 hours long) includes a visit to the estate where you’ll discover the vineyards and how this project was created, but you’ll also take a tour of the cellar and do some wine-tasting with pairing.

*The second one (about 2 hours long) is shorter and includes the tour of the cellar and wine-tasting with pairing.

For either of these options we can offer a transfer from our hotel so that you can enjoy a magnificent experience in full.
