Base camp: Santanyi or Cala d'Or, etc.

Jump to last reply

Fellow travelers of Mallorca,

I would like to ask some questions for my upcoming early September 6-day trip to Mallorca. We are thinking to stay in Palma for 2 days and to spend 4 days near a beach. Just FYI we have a 6-month old baby who will be on his first international travel : )

Basically I am trying to resolve my desire to avoid the “mass market” (I’d like to stay in a quaint charming village) and “sleepy town” (I’d like there to be something going on in the evenings) in the Southeast of Mallorca.

My question is generally whether Santanyi is a quaint village with enough nightlife to make it a perfect place to stay, or is it really more sleepy, suggesting that because we will be in the Southeast we should sacrifice our hunt for the idyllic and “unspoilt” and just stay in one of the resort towns of Cala d’Or, or somewhere in the area. (Alternatively, what is a quaint base in that area?)

After seeing some pictures (on seemallorca.com) of Santanyi, I got the impression that it was a vibrant, charming little village and we decided to base in Santanyi for excursions to Cala Llombards, Cala Ratjan and the Cala d’Or area beaches. After walking the town via google maps, however, I got the impression of Santanyi was that it closes at 4 or 5 o’clock – everything looked closed… I am curious if it is as quaint and charming a village as you’ll find in the Southeast.

Also, it is important to us to have local Mallorcan cooking and culture.

Any general and specific thoughts you might have are greatly appreciated.

Cheers!
