Places in Spain - Santa Ponca (Santa Ponsa), Mallorca
On the east coast of Mallorca, a short drive from Magaluf is Santa Ponca (Santa Ponsa). The resort comprises of a wide, ringed bay with a sandy beach, encircled by pine trees. The seafront is lined with hotels and apartments. There is a quaint port where modern vessels moor happily alongside traditional fishing boats. In between the beach and the port is a simple monument that commemorates the landing of James I of Aragon in 1229 when he arrived to re-conquer Mallorca from the Moslems. From this monument you can get panoramic views over the bay.
This is a busy, cosmopolitan resort that attracts a multi-national tourist trade. The winters are quiet yet in the summer the resort bulges with visitors. There is a pulsating nightlife here although not quite on par with nearby Magaluf. You will find a great infrastructure of restaurants, bars and tourist attractions.
There is a quality golf course here with a golf school, driving range and excellent club facilities.
