Paguera is, quite simply, a beach lover’s dream. Situated on the south-western coast of the Balearic island of Majorca, this small resort that started life as a fishing village has not one but three, beautiful blue flag beaches for you to choose from. Playa Palmira, the main beach, is situated in a scenic horseshoe bay, and is linked by a leafy, pedestrianised promenade to the two other smaller beaches, Playa de Tora, and Playa de la Romana. Renowned for their cleanliness, all three beaches have golden sand and clear waters perfect for watersports and swimming. Cafes and restaurants line the promenade, and you’ll find it the perfect place to enjoy a drink and some fresh seafood while you watch the sun go down over Isla de Malgrat. And once night time falls, you’ll find a lively, friendly bar scene on Paguera’s main street, El Bulevar.
Paguera also appeals to hikers and outdoor enthusiasts. Head out of the village and you’re quickly up in the pine forests and the mountains. The area has great trails for hiking and mountain biking, and the Balearic Islands’ highest mountain range, the Sierra de Tramuntana, is within easy reach. The rugged peaks, olive groves, and native flowers make this stunning area well worth exploring.
If you fancy venturing away from the beaches, the island’s capital city, Palma, is around 30 minutes drive away and makes a great day trip destination with its impressive gothic architecture, vibrant café culture, and fascinating history. If you can tear yourself away from the beautiful beaches that is!
