Colonia Sant Jordi

Colonia Sant Jordi is one of my favorite places in our wonderful southeast of Mallorca. You can take wonderful walks around the place and always enjoy new views of the sea. Or walk along the beach to the Cap of Ses Salines... fantastic! In autumn and winter I often go out here with my dog Tap.

A little excursion into history

A little information about Colonia Sant Jordi: The place is a former fishing town and belongs to the municipality of Ses Salines, which is located in the southeastern corner of Mallorca between Santanyí and Campos and owes its name to the millennia-old salt pans that were already used by the Romans.

As in the time of the Phoenicians around 600 BC. To this day, white gold is mined from the pink lagoons of the salt marshes in the 1st century BC. The Salinas de Llevant extend far into the hinterland. The narrow, seemingly never-ending canals form an impressive panorama. Framed by salt-resistant plants, the halophytes, a unique landscape architecture was created in which more than 150 species of birds live. Part of the municipality of Ses Salines has been declared a nature reserve of special landscape interest by the Balearic Government.

The environment

Overall, trips to the surrounding area are worthwhile, preferably with a bike, which you can rent anywhere in town. You can also discover other, quite lonely beaches that can only be reached on foot. The beautiful and quiet beaches, all surrounded by nature reserves, are one of the biggest attractions of Colònia de Sant Jordi. Here you can discover one of the most beautiful and paradisiacal natural areas within the Mallorca ecosystem. To the west of Colònia de Sant Jordi is the longest natural beach on the island, Es Trenc. Extensive pine forests frame the protected beaches. The coastal area with its rocky islands, untouched fine sandy beaches and lush vegetation is washed by crystal clear water.

Directly on the harbor promenade of Colònia de Sant Jordi - the harbor was formerly the port of Campos - numerous restaurants and cafes invite you to linger and enjoy local dishes and especially freshly caught fish dishes. It's best to rent a car, as this is the only way to get to know this wonderful piece of earth best. And at any time, whether in February to see the almond blossoms or in the summer to enjoy the crystal clear water or in the fall to go on long hikes in the countryside, to our monasteries or on the beach...this zone is always wonderful and has something to offer a thousand ways to enjoy your time on Mallorca.

Maybe we'll see each other soon in Colonia Sant Jordi. Until then, I send you my best wishes from Mallorca and give you a little inspiration and anticipation!

Best regards
