Great Things to Do Near Naveta

From the house to Cala Sa Nau or Cala Mitjana

It takes about 25 minutes to walk to the Cala Mitjana beach through the shrubland, but even more convenient is the small sandy Cala Sa Nau beach with some amenities, good for snorkelling, just a 400 metre walk down the road.

Sunday Market in Felanitx

There is a lively bustling market in Felanitx on Sunday morning where the streets are lined with stalls selling local produce, fresh fruit and vegetables. There are some good tapas bars in Felanitx square, too.

An evening stroll before dinner

The small fishing ports of Portocolom and Portopetro are congenial for a stroll around the quayside and a meal sitting on the terrace of one of the restaurants overlooking the picturesque harbours. There are also boat trips available during the day from these two harbours where you can appreciate the beauty of the east coastline.

Walk to the Castell de Santueri

If you are keen walkers, it is possible to walk from the Puig de Sant Salvador to the ruined Castell de Santueri, an Arab fortress. Or you can drive up a narrow winding road from the Felanitx-Cas Concos road. Magnificent views over the coastline from the top.

Waterparks and Marineland

For those who enjoy waterparks, try Aqualand at S'Arenal - it can get crowded and best to take a picnic! Marineland is in Costa den Blanes and has wonderful dolphin, sea lion and parrot shows.

Visit one of the local wineries

There are several wineries open to the public in Mallorca. Jaume Mesquida de Mallorca is in the street C/ de la Vileta 7 in Porreres, a family-run business founded in 1945 which produces wines of the Pla and Llevant areas.

A day trip to Valldemossa and Deià

The Carthusian Monastery at Valldemossa, where Chopin spent a winter, is worth a visit and a stroll round the quiet back streets of Valldemossa, too. Then carry on to the beautiful village of Deià, home to many famous people, writers, painters and musicians.

A day trip to Sóller by train

For adults and children alike, it's fun to take the old-fashioned train from Palma (or Bunyola) to Sóller. From there you can get a tram to the Port de Sóller through the orange groves and back to then enjoy sitting in the main square in Sóller and enjoy the atmosphere.

A boat trip to the Island of Cabrera

A National Park and Marine Reserve, this makes a wonderful day trip by boat to the Island of Cabrera, a small Balearic island off Mallorca's south east corner. Take a picnic or buy lunch on board. The boats leave quite early from Colònia de Sant Jordi - best to book. Tel 971 649 034

The famous Caves of Drach

The most spectacular caves on the island are the Caves of Drach in Portocristo, where one of the largest underground lakes is to be found. Nearby are the Caves of Hams, as well as an Aquarium. Further north, at Canyamel, are the Caves of Artà which are not quite so commercial. Visits are usually on the hour.

Palma, an interesting and beautiful capital city

There are many interesting historical buildings to visit in Palma, including the Cathedral, Almudaina Palace, Bellver Castle, as well as museums and art galleries. Palma is also an excellent shopping centre.

Local beaches and coves

The east coast of Mallorca has several coves and beaches which are safe for children, and others that are fun for snorkelling. The most popular beaches are Cala Sa Nau, S'Amarador, Cala Mondragó, Cala Llombards and a little further away Es Trenc.

Santanyi market days

On Wednesday and Saturday mornings the local market is held in Santanyi. The streets are lined with a variety of stalls and it is great to be able to stock up with fresh fruit and vegetables, cheeses and local produce.

Flora and fauna at Es Salobrar

Es Salobrar, an area inland from Es Trenc beach, is one of the natural zones of great ecological value. Many varied birds and other animal life, as well as a wide variety of flora (including rush, tamarisk and sea fennel) are to be found here.

An historic manor house

Els Calderers is between Sant Joan and Vilafranca - journey back in time and imagine how Mallorca was 200 years ago. This fine manor house and farm is one of the most representative mansions on Mallorca's flatland - you can also see home-made products.

Sant Salvador Monastery and sunset

It is worth the drive to the top of the hill of Sant Salvador, near to Felanitx. As well as the monastery which has a museum, bar and restaurant, the views of the surrounding countryside are magnificent. On a clear day you can see the Island of Cabrera Nature Reserve, or even witness a most beautiful sunset.

Anyone for tennis?

The Rafael Nadal Tennis Academy in nearby Manacor might be out of most people’s leagues, but aspiring players can usually book courts in local hotels or municipal courts in towns such as Felanitx.

Boat trips along the east coast

There is a variety of boat trips leaving from Portocolom and Portopetro (Starfish)which take you down the east coast of Mallorca, visiting some of the lovely coves and, on occasions, you are allowed you to swim off the boat.

Play a round of golf!

Play 9 holes at Vall d’Or Golf, on the road between Cala d’or and Porto Colom. Tel: 971 837 001. valldorgolf@valldorgolf.com.

Hire a bike!
