Santa Ponsa is located 20 km south-west of the capital Palma de Mallorca, close to the two other popular holiday resorts Magaluf and Palma Nova.
The beach in general
Santa Ponsa has a nice and big sand beach in the central part of the town. The wide beach is covered with fine-grained, bright sand. In the back of the beach, there are trees and palm trees offering shade in the noon heat – also for the many beautiful green birds.
The beach is located several hundred metres inside a bay, ensuring that the clear water is usually calm. This makes it perfect for a long swim or a nice ride on a water bike for the entire family.
During the high season, the beach is quite popular, but there is room for everyone. If you come by car, there is a big free parking space and also parking spaces in the streets behind the beach.
There is plenty of room to play at the beach and the water is shallow and usually calm.
Therefore, the beach is very child-friendly and is one of the reasons why Santa Ponsa is popular among families with small children.
The beach in Santa Ponsa offers most types of water sports including jet skis, kayaks and the conventional water bikes.
At the beach, there are two-three beach bars, but in the street running parallel to the beach, there are many restaurants, cafés and bars.
In the southern end of the beach, there are a few restaurants with a higher location and from here, you can enjoy the great view of the bay.
