Most of the south coast resorts on Majorca have a good selection of sandy beaches, and Paguera is no different offering visitors a choice of 3 called "Playa Palmira", "Playa Tora" and "Playa La Romana". These beaches are all then joined by a fairly new traffic free pedestrian promenade running the length of the resort. During the summer months all 3 beaches can become very busy, although in all fairness to the local council, they are usually kept very clean.
Behind the promenade there's a long shopping street know as locally "El Bulevar", and it's here where most of the restaurants and bars seem to be concentrated. Paguera has an excellent selection of souvenir shops and Spar type supermarkets, which are supported with others selling local arts and crafts and famous designer label clothes.
Based in Paguera, Cruceros Cormoran offers a variety of both 2 and 4 hour cruises along the south coast of
Mallorca, calling at the nearby resorts of Camp de Mar and Santa Ponsa. Contact details for more information

A number of boat trip operate out of Paguera, including glass bottomed boats that run along the coast, and others that run over to the nature reserve at Dragonera island. The Dragonera Natural Park and the Dragonera Island, is really a 6km long rock that is named because of its likeness to a dragon's back rising out of the water. In 1987 this area of the island was designated a natural conservation area, and has since then enjoyed the protection of the Majorca Council from commercial development. Once there, visitors can visit the small museum and see the remains of a Roman settlement at the Cova de sa Font. Although at its nearest point the island is only 700 metres from the mainland, separated by the ‘Es Freu' channel, private visits to the island are only allowed with an official permit available from the local council offices.
For the more adventurous the village of Cala Fornells is a little over 1/2 an hours walk away. The village is very picturesque and has a number of original terracotta style houses. So, don't forget to take the camera!
