The authentic Mallorca is in the south of the island, with its laid-back Mediterranean lifestyle, its nature and its local traditions.
The sunset from the lighthouse of Sa Puntassa
It is said that one of the best sunsets in Majorca is seen from the sa Puntassa lighthouse, which closes the Bay of Migjorn and announces that we are about to enter the port of Colònia. And we completely agree; leaving the hotel, walking along the beach path while the sun sets and ending up at the lighthouse with views of La Cabrera island, is simply spectacular for a summer evening.
Cala Figuera, a natural port hidden among cliffs
Hidden among cliffs, pine and fig trees is the fishing port of Cala Figuera. Its whitewashed houses with their green shutters, the fishermen repairing their nets before going back out to sea, and the traditional llaüts [Mediterranean sailboats] moored along the port create a true picture-postcard view of the Majorca.
Santanyí, a picturesque village that becomes a market
On Wednesday and Saturday mornings, the picturesque village of Santanyí becomes a local market, full of little stalls where you can buy fruit and vegetables directly from the pagès [Catalan farmer] as well as the typical senalles (baskets), all kinds of garments made with Majorcan “cloth of tongues”, ceramics and local crafts. No doubt, a place you cannot miss, just 20 mins from Hotel Honucai by car.
Discover the light of the fishing villages in the south of Majorca. A destination for those who wish for more than just travel; experience the unhurried rhythm of the Mediterranean and the taste of its tradition.
