Santa Margalida is one of the very last unspoilt villages in Mallorca. Seemingly untouched by the hands of time, Santa Margalida is a truly charming place to stay. This is a part of Mallorca that few visitors ever see, far from the tourist havens that the island is famous for, yet with all the beaches, facilities and unspoilt countryside that you could ever wish for right on your doorstep.
A Santa Margalida villa is the perfect place to unwind. The tree lined squares and shaded streets of the village couldn’t be any more relaxing in which to sit, with tapas bars, pavement cafes and charming little restaurants to frequent, all in the shadow of the huge Gothic church which stands in the village centre. Historically and culturally, the Santa Margalida region is wonderfully rich, with the Stone Age sites of Son Baulo and the roman amphitheatre of Alcudia within very easy reach of a Santa Margalida holiday rental.
The golf courses of Pollenca and Capdepera are both well within reach of a Santa Margalida property too, offering visitors a wonderful 18 holes of golf in beautiful rural scenery. Natural scenery is abundant around Santa Margalida, as the stunning S’Albufera National Park is just minutes away. The marshy coastline of the Bay of Alcudia is protected as a national park, named S’Albufera, and is home to many animals from tortoises to purple heron. There is even a little museum that allows you to really get an understanding for the natural, cultural and historical significance of the park and its surroundings.
The beautiful Bay of Alcudia is just 7km from a holiday rental property in Santa Margalida, and the sensational beaches that line the bay are massively alluring when temperatures begin to soar during the summer. There are a great range of sensational beaches within 20 minutes of Santa Margalida accommodation, including the golden expanses of Can Picafort and the water sports centres of Alcudia.
A holiday rental property in Santa Margalida is just 40 minutes fromPalma de Mallorca International Airport (PMI). Palma Airport is fantastically well connected to the UK, with astonishingly regular flights arriving from almost all airports throughout the country. Ryanair, ThomsonFly and Monarch Airlines offer the greatest range of cheap flights to Palma, but there are other airlines and routes available. A hire car is strongly recommended whilst staying in Santa Margalida accommodation, especially if you would like to explore the coast to its fullest.
