Santanyí is a municipality located in the southeastern part of the island of Majorca which comprises several nuclei of population, being the most inhabited Cala d’Or – probably one of the best areas to rent a holiday home in Majorca.
Unlike other more tourist areas of the island, the municipality of Santanyí exudes a fairly rural mallorcan essence. The municipality has dazzling natural landscapes, it is not accidental that it is the second largest natural park in the Balearic Islands.
In addition, Santanyí has a magnet for creative personalities. So it is not strange to find in the village many international artists, forming art a fundamental part of the life of the place where you can find many galleries and workshops throughout the center of Santanyí. To highlight only a couple: the Sailer gallery, perhaps one of the most fascinating, and the art house.
All these reasons are more than enough to make Santanyí a must-visit destination during your holiday in Majorca, but there is still more.
The coast of Santanyí
Santanyí offers 42 km of really spectacular coast, with some of the most beautiful coves of the island like Cala Figuera, Cala Llombards or Cala Mondragó. In addition to the magical corner of Caló des Moro – of which we have already spoken before - and which, by him alone, is well worth travelling to Majorca.
May we insist a little more on Cala Mondragó, not only because of the beauty of the cove itself, but also because it is the cove of the National Park of Mondragó, the second largest natural park of the Balearic Islands that we mentioned before. This protected natural area, since the year 1992, has an extension of 766 hectares, of which almost 100 are public. The lucky visitors can enjoy a variety of flora and fauna. To know it thoroughly, the park offers its visitors four different itineraries, for which it will take between 25 and 40 minutes to complete them.
As we advise at the beginning of the article, it is the best place in the area to rent a holiday home in Majorca. This town is characterized by the white color of its buildings, emulating the style of Ibiza. Besides being an area with a beautiful beach and a lot of life.
Now you know, on your next trip to Majorca visit Santanyí if you want to know what a place with art is.
