In Cala Deià you will discover two different beach restaurants with typical majorcan food. It is idyllic and proof of this are the various films and adverts that have been filmed in this small cove.
This majorcan cove doest not have a lot of services, but it is a special place. Also because of its rocky seabed, it is the ideal place to snorkel and admire the wonderful marine life.
Sant Elmo is a small village near to Andratx. The beauty of this majorcan village is that it combines coves and sandy beaches. Is the ideal place for a beach day as Sant Telmo offers us two options.
The sandy beach has many facilities, such as local shops and water sports equipment rental. Sant Elmo’s stony coves are small, so it is a good idea to go early and get a place.
Also, a few metres from the beaches, you will find a small island with a minuscule cove. It is the perfect place to enjoy the marine life. If you enjoy swimming, a visit to this island is a must in order to know this corner of Majorca.
All of these places are located in the Tramuntana Mountains, just like SólleRooms. Our small hotel is close to all of these spots which are a must during your holiday in Majorca.
