From the panoramic kitchen window and various vantage points around the grounds there is a lovely view across lush shrubs and oleander bushes to the sanctuary-topped Puig de Maria.

This part of Mallorca has it all… and it is all within easy distance! Strolling or cycling the intricate country byways is always a pleasure, as is taking a dip in the benign waters of the Mediterranean, enjoying the local water sports or just lazing on one of the sandy beaches at Cala Sant Vicenç (6km) or Port de Pollença (7km). There are many shops and lovely restaurants close by, the nearest (Es Moli) just 1.5km away is well known for its incredible value ‘menu del dia’ at lunchtime.

Location of Bon Jesus

Locality

Great Things to Do Near Bon Jesus

Caves of Campanet

The beautiful Caves of Campanet, found by a shepherd about 100 years ago, are not too far away and worth a visit to see the fascinating stalagmite and stalactite formations. These caves are not too commercialised and visits are on the hour. For the most impressive caves, go to Portocristo on the east coast and visit the Caves of Drach which houses one of the largest underground lakes in Europe.

Explore the old town of Pollença

Stroll around the old town of Pollença. It's definitely worth making the effort to climb the 365 steps up to the Calvary church and browsing in the curious little shops before sitting down to relax with a drink and dinner in one of the many popular restaurants in the pedestrianised squares.

Visit Palma – by train

If you'd like to visit the capital, Palma, and are not keen on driving, then take the train from Sa Pobla. Palma is an excellent shopping centre and has many interesting historical buildings, museums and art galleries to visit.

Sunday morning market

The market in Pollença on Sunday morning is a colourful, bustling event where you can buy your locally grown fresh fruit and vegetables, as well as souvenirs and presents. Have a look inside the church while you are there as it is quite impressive.

Snorkelling at Mal Pas

If you would like to do some snorkelling in clear, deep water, go towards Alcúdia, turn off towards the La Victoria headland until you reach Mal Pas. Beside a fish restaurant serving lobster (choose your own), there is an excellent area off the rocks for snorkelling.

Paella on the beach

Spend a day at the beach between Ca'n Picafort and the area east of Alcúdia, at Ses Casetes des Capellans, where you can enjoy a tasty paella or seafood dishes at one of the beach restaurants while enjoying the sea and sun on a long and sandy beach.

Formentor beach and lighthouse

A scenic drive will take you to Formentor Lighthouse - the road is quite narrow in places. At the top of the hill out of Port de Pollença, it is worth stopping at the viewpoint to see El Colomer rock. Although the beach at Formentor is not very large, it has clear shallow water ideal for children and adults alike, with some good waters for snorkelling. Go early, with a picnic.

Inca for a shopping expedition

A short drive on the motorway takes you to Inca which has a good shopping centre but also has several leather factory outlets including Camper shoes. Nearby is Puig de Magdalena (puig = hillock, pronounced pooch) with a little chapel at the top and a restaurant which serves good typical Mallorcan food while enjoying the most splendid view over the surrounding countryside.

Puig de Maria

The start of the walk uphill to Puig de Maria (puig=hillock) is just before the rooster roundabout on the right of the main road towards Port de Pollença. It's best to go first thing in the morning, wearing sensible shoes and don't forget your camera. Take a bottle of water with you although there is a bar at the top

Sóller and its Port by train

The old-fashioned train ride through the mountains from Palma (or Bunyola) to Sóller and back, including the tram to the Port of Sóller through the orange groves and back, and just sitting in the church square in Sóller enjoying a drink and watching the world go by.

Market days in Sineu and Inca

If you like bustling markets lining the streets, then Inca market on Thursday is the busiest you will find on the island. However, Sineu market on Wednesday is unusual as it still sells livestock such as goats, sheep, rabbits and ducks. The fresh fruit and vegetable market is up the hill in a smaller square at the front of the church.

Tramuntana mountain road to Deià

Drive over the Tramuntana mountain roads via Inca, Lluc and Sóller, taking in the spectacular scenery, stopping at the various viewpoints including the two lakes/reservoirs, and passing through several world-renowned towns of Fornalutx, Deià and Valldemossa, home to famous writers, painters and musicians.

Is the nearest waterpark for guests in staying in the north of the island. Open from beginning of May until end of October.http://www.alcudia-waterpark.com/

Alfàbia gardens

If you enjoy gardens, these Moorish gardens, right at the entrance to the Sóller tunnel, are a must. They are cool on a hot day, with lots of water and wonderful trees and exotic plants to admire. A small bar serves fresh orange and lemon juice.

The famous caves of Drach
