About Sa Coma
The holiday resort Sa Coma in the northeast of Mallorca boasts a beautiful sandy Blue Flag beach and numerous leisure activities in and around the area. North of Sa Coma you’ll find the larger resort of Cala Millor and to the south is the charming fishing village of Porto Cristo.
Sa Coma is a rather small resort in the municipality of Sant Llorenç des Cardassar and is well suited to both holidaying families and couples. With the sandy beach Playa de Sa Coma and two other beaches nearby – in Cala Millor and S’Illot – sunbathers have a good selection close by. In the north and south of Sa Coma, in Cala Bona and Porto Cristo, some small marinas can also be found.
On the main shopping street you can find supermarkets, chemists, and a selection of restaurants and bars that include an Irish pub.
History and Culture of Sa Coma
Sa Coma was created in the 1980s as a tourist resort and residential development. Sa Punta de n’Amer, a headland adjoining Sa Coma, was declared an official nature reserve (ANEI) in 1985. There you can admire the 17th-century defensive tower ‘Es Castell’ (the castle), which not only offers a wonderful view of the sea and the countryside, but also houses a museum. A ring of such towers spans Mallorca and served as a warning system and first line of defence against pirate attacks.
An outstanding cultural event is the Smooth Jazz Festival, held annually in May in Sa Coma, featuring live performances of soul, funk and jazz music for about a week. In mid-July, the festival of the city’s patron saint is traditionally celebrated, featuring a parade of giants, a selection of local food, and various bands playing live music.
Mallorca´s 5-star Protur Biomar Gran Hotel & Spa in the beautiful resort, Sa Coma, is hosting a weekend long music festival of jazz, soul & funk. Vamos!

Major Attractions in Sa Coma
Sa Coma is great for a relaxing beach holiday. If you want to be more active, there are some interesting attractions for all ages in the surrounding area, including the world-famous Coves del Drac and Coves del Hams caves, which are only 10 kilometres away. A few minutes’ walk from the centre is the Safari Zoo, where you can see giraffes, rhinos, zebras, gazelles and wildebeest. The safari can be enjoyed from your own car or on the safari train. Near the Safari Zoo you can visit the Talaiot Na Pol. Talaiots are ancient stone buildings that had a variety of functions and are common in Mallorca and Menorca. In S’Illot, adjacent to Sa Coma, there is even a well-preserved Talaiot settlement, which can also be visited and is considered one of the most important archaeological sites in the Balearic Islands. In the centre you can have fun with your kids at the 36-hole minigolf ‘Paradis’, surrounded by beautiful gardens.

Shopping in Sa Coma
Groceries and beach accessories can easily be purchased in Sa Coma. For proper shopping, however, we recommend driving to Cala Millor or the much larger Manacor, known for its furniture and pearl manufacturing, as well as more well-known brands.

Restaurants in Sa Coma
Since Sa Coma is one of the smaller resorts and the hotels cover a large part of the gastronomy, good restaurants are limited. You will find eateries offering the typical Spanish daily set menu (or ‘menú del día’). If you are looking for a culinary experience, we recommend trying one of the many wonderful restaurants in the charming fishing village of Porto Cristo.
Lively grill houses, modest Spanish restaurants and popular tourist bars serve up everything from seafood to curry, beside the seaside. […] Sa Coma Restaurants
