Make a holiday villa in Ses Covetes your home away from home
The tiny seaside village of Ses Covetes, which means ‘Little Caves’ in Spanish, lies near the southern tip of Majorca, approximately 50 km southeast from Palma. With fewer than 100 permanent inhabitants and a sunny-but-quiet windswept beach, Ses Covetes is a popular spot for holidaymakers looking to escape the dense crowds found in more populated parts of Majorca. Spacious and luxurious holiday homes abound here and HomeAway represents a large array of these homes as well as numerous villas and even apartments. Perks at the properties range from breathtaking sea views to generously-sized private pools. Holiday villas in Ses Covetes can sleep anywhere from 6 to 14 people, whilst holiday apartments in Ses Covetes can typically accommodate 4 to 6 guests easily.
Things to do in Ses Covetes
Ses Covetes is a fairly small village with a pretty and family-friendly 300-metre beach backed by gently rolling sand dunes. An appealing base to explore Majorca’s natural beauty, Ses Covetes holiday homes enjoy easy access to several prominent national parks as well as some of the island’s most famous beaches.
-Platja El Trenc (El Trenc Beach) has crystal clear waters stretched out over 3 kilometres of white sand beach making El Trenc Majorca’s most well-reviewed beach. Extremely busy on summer weekends, El Trenc features gentle waves and a soft slope that makes it very popular with families. Backing the beach is a series of bars and restaurants -- the perfect venue to watch the sun go down over the ocean before a gentle stroll back to your Ses Covetes holiday villa.
-Snorkelling and Diving enthusiasts will find excellent sites in south east Majorca. The waters here are very clear and underwater excursions regularly depart from Sa Rapita, just a short drive from Ses Covetes. The ecosystem beneath the waters of Majorca is diverse and complex. Snorkellers and divers can expect to encounter groupers, octopuses, moray eels and more.
-Sa Rapita Beach is El Trenc’s quieter counterpart. Featuring the same gentle sand dunes and fantastically clean waters, Sa Rapita is a great alternative to El Trenc if you don’t feel like dealing with the crowds. The 1 kilometre beach is flanked by the Sa Rapita Yacht Club on one end, which offers sailing lessons to visitors.
-Cabrera National Park is just 10 kilometres from the southern tip of Majorca, and an accessible day trip from holiday homes in Ses Covetes. The small chain of islands here is home to countless species of flora and fauna that are endemic to the Balearic Islands. The Lilford's Wall Lizard is one such example of a species that can only be found in Cabrera National Park.
-Parc Natural Mondrago is an unspoilt slice of Majorca not far from Ses Covetes and, like Cabrera National Park, features a complex and fragile ecosystem. This is an ideal place for nature walks and bird watching.
