Santa Ponsa Attractions

Situated just 500 metres from the beach at Santa Ponsa, deep and within a 9 hectare pine forest, the Jungle Parc is the largest tree adventure course in the Balearic Islands. Using their skill and courage, visitors are challenged to move from tree to tree, all at varying heights from the ground, using a variety of bridges, ropes, vines and zip wires. For adults there is a choice of 2 courses, the "Explorer" and for the more experienced or adventurous, the "Extreme". For children aged from 4 to 11 years a specially designed "Pirates" course is also available. Unless you are visiting as part of a large group, there is no need to book, just turn up on the day, and each adventure lasts approximately 1.1/4 hours inclusive of a 15 mintute mandatory safety and traning session.

The resort of Santa Ponsa is very proud to have no less than three full size golf courses within a few minutes drive of the town, which are known by the less than original names of Santa Ponsa I, II and III. The first Santa Ponsa I, was designed by Folco Nardi and opened to the public in 1977. The second course is a little shorter than Santa Ponsa I, but is recognised as being one of the most technically difficult courses in the Balearic Islands. The third courses is still a relatively new addition having only being open in January 1999 and was designed by Francisco Lopez Segales. Visitors to the island are only unfortunately allowed to play on number 1, with the remaining two courses being reserved for share and debenture holders only!

So what else is there to do in Calvia? Well the general principle is, if you've got money in your pocket you're never more than a few minutes away from a major tourist attraction.

Golf Fantasia at nearby Palma Nova, is set amid waterfalls, caves and tropical gardens, and is without doubt one of the best mini golf courses in Majorca. There is a choice of three very different 18 hole courses, although you will be allocated a specific course on buying the ticket in an attempt to minimise waiting time during play.

This attraction becomes very popular during high season with most of the major tour operators running trips here from all over the island. They are open every day throughout the year from 10am to 2am the following morning. Contact details for more information is:

As we previously mentioned very briefly on the general introduction page, just along the coast from Palma Nova at Portals Nous, is one of the most popular family attractions on the island Marineland. Here you will find performing dolphins, sealions, and parrot shows throughout the day. As far as we are aware these are the only captive dolphins on the island, and frequently we are asked "can we swim with them?". Again as far as we are aware, the answer is sadly no. During the show a number of small children are picked at random to be pulled around their pool in a small inflatable dinghy, but outside of the show times the public are not allowed access to these beautiful creatures. A visit to Marineland is often included in all of the major tour operators organised day trips, and it can become very busy during the peak season. For more information their contact details are:

Although Palma is the commercial and cultural centre of Majorca, the depth of history, culture and nightlife there often takes visitors by surprise. The easiest way to "see Palma in a day" is by the Number 50 sightseeing bus, which runs on average every 20 minutes throughout the day, and takes in all the major sights of the city. In common with most City Tour buses around Europe, you can hop on and off the bus at any point, and tickets are valid for a 24 hour period. The total journey time for the round trip is 1 hour 20 minutes and costs 15 euro for adults and 7.50 euro for children under 16. For more information their contact details are:
Telephone: +34 902 10 10 81
