About Bendinat

The popular residential area of Bendinat enjoys a prime coastal location, which is in sharp contrast to the backdrop of the adjacent Tramuntana Mountain range. Its location and exclusivity mean it is home to an abundance of luxury villas and apartments. The convenience of being within easy reach of Palma, the major tourist resorts of Palmanova and Magaluf, and high class Puerto Portals increases its appeal greatly.

Here we provide all the information you want to know about making the most of a visit to this superbly located Mallorcan village.

History & Culture

The renowned French architect and town planner François Spoerry developed the modern suburban incarnation of Bendinat. Prior to this we come across Bendinat a couple of times in the history books.

In 1229 King James of Aragon made camp here after a grueling battle with the Moors. There is a story relating to the origin of its name, where the King said ‘Ben dinat’, meaning ‘well dined’ in Catalan, after enjoying a meal in a tent here.

Bendinat castle was built between 1855 and 1867. The 3rd Marquis of la Romana, Pedro Caro, commissioned the build in the Central European Gothic style. The 2800-acre estate has had several private owners, including the Count of Montenegro. It is still possible to see the castle from a distance, but still being privately owned means it’s not open to tourists.

Major attractions in Bendinat

Undoubtedly one of Bendinat’s most appealing characteristics is its lack of attractions. It provides a feeling of isolation and luxury in a location that is very close to holiday resorts and the cosmopolitan capital city of Palma, making it an ideal base for older couples and families who appreciate the convenience without the hustle bustle of staying in a resort centre.

Things to do in Bendinat


Bendinat is well known for the exceptional Real Golf de Bendinat. The 18-hole course is located in the heart of the prestigious Bendinat development of luxury villas. It sits in a picturesque wooded valley and provides absolutely stunning views of the surrounding area, especially on the back 9. The honourary President of the club is none other than King Juan Carlos of Spain. The clubhouse offers excellent facilities and a great view of the 18th hole.
