Wind Down in Costa de los Pinos
Costa de los Pinos is the ideal location if you’re looking to unwind, soak up some sun and generally decelerate in one of Majorca’s quieter resorts. On the east coast of Majorca sits the charming resort of Costa de los Pinos, populated by a gorgeous beach and leisurely locals. Close to Palma, the resort is aimed at those who prefer a slice of isolation rather than constant exhilaration offered by surrounding resorts. The beach is the focal point of your Costa de los Pinos holidays - the turquoise seas and blonde sand is there to be taken advantage of.
Beauty and Necessity
Life is lived in the slow lane during holidays in Costa de los Pinos, and it’s just as well as the atmosphere requires more than just a quick glance. The protruding hills in the distance visible from the seafront add to an already awe-inspiring picture. The resort is the Balearic Islands’ family favourite, as well as being a popular honeymoon spot. The handful of beachfront bars and restaurants provide necessary replenishment when in fear of being sunburnt. For activity away from the beach on holidays to Costa de los Pinos, neighbouring resorts offer traditional tourist attractions such as countryside excursions in Cala Millor, and historical monuments such as the Caves of Drach in Canyamel. If you’d prefer to stay on the island, you can jump aboard the Orange Blossom Trail. The train journey travels through the mountains and stops at smaller villages and towns to give travellers a unique insight in to the real Majorca and rural Spain. Venture inland to the town of Arta and up 180 stairs to appreciate unprecedented island and coastal views. The 14th century fortress is the main attraction of the small town, populated by small houses and countryside beauty. If you want to part with some euros visit the nearby Inca Market and Festival Park, one of Majorca’s largest outdoor markets. Grab some local nibbles and exotic bites for a picnic on the beach. If you’re more than a little peckish, family-run restaurants on the seafront will serve you up some fresh seafood to make the rumbles go away.
