Serenity, Sea Views and Sunsets in Costa De La Calma
Costa de la Calma, is situated just on the outskirts of Santa Ponsa, in the south West of Mallorca and is a largely residential area, but also very popular with many Europeans choosing a holiday home.
The literal translation of the name is the “calm coast” and this is an extremely worthy label of this idyllic and tranquil area, just tucked around the corner from the hustle and bustle of the nearby tourist resorts of Santa Ponsa and Paguera. When one sees the natural beauty of the area you will certainly appreciate that this lovely area would indeed create an ambience of calm and inner peace and if you are ever along this coastline around sunset you will know that this is perhaps one of the best spots on the island to witness this daily spectacle with dramatic bursts of orange and red lighting up the sky which once seen, will never be forgotten.
Things to do in Costa De La Calma
A short stroll will bring you to a couple of pretty little coves dotted along its rocky coastline, pretty much untouched by tourism and used mainly by locals to the area. There is also a beautiful chiringuito, which offers sun loungers and direct entry into the sea from its rocky platform and its diving board, which offers some of the best snorkelling on the island.
There is a Tennis club situated in Costa De La Calma and a handful of restaurants and bars, but other than this the area is fairly low key with an abundance of conveniences and amenities being situated in Santa Ponsa which is a few minutes’ drive away. There are plenty of golfing opportunities within a few minutes’ drive with Santa Ponsa I, II and one 9-hole course called Santa Ponsa III.. There is the further championship course of Gold Andratx situated about 10 minutes’ drive away in Camp De Mar.
