Travel Agents View ...hosts a market twice weekly so keep your eyes open for a bargain

The small traditional town of Campos is situated on the south east of Majorca, between Llucmajor and Santanyi and is 35km from the airport.

Campos is mainly residential and hosts a market twice weekly so keep your eyes open for a bargain. There are a couple of shops and restaurants in Campos and a few beaches within 10 minutes drive.

Although there is not much in Campos itself, there is plenty to do in the area.

Majorca Insider ...spoilt for choice when it comes to restaurants but one I particularly like is Es Brot, which serves very traditional Mallorcan fare

Campos is a rather charming and understated agricultural Majorcan town sandwiched between the rural towns of Lluchmajor and Satanyi in the south east. Although a quiet place with a relaxed ambience, shady honey coloured stone houses and narrow, winding streets, Campos livens up on Saturday and Thursday, its regular market days. For some reason, the town has some of the best bakeries around so if you're looking to try traditional ensaimada pasties or almond cake, look no further. I'd recommend Patisseria Pomar for the best pastries. The parish church of Sant Julià with its adjacent museum is home to a portrait of Christ by Sevillian artist, Bartolomé Esteban Murillo, definitely worth a squint and if you're into offertory bowls, the museum's full of them. The local priest is a good egg and offers guided tours every day at 11 am so head for the church door at that time if you'd like to join him.

Right on the doorstep of Campos is one of Majorca's most famous beaches, Es Trenc. This endless stretch of white virgin sand is a mecca for tourists and locals in the summer especially because the sea is shallow and safe and therefore ideal for children. Not far away is also Colonia de Sant Jordi, the port from which the boat to the beautiful island of Cabrera departs. This is one visit you must try to make. I have done this 45 minute boat ride many times, swimming in the blue cave on the way and having a picnic and walk up to the old ruined castle on arrival at the island. There are other interesting sights in the area which include S'Alobrar nature park, the second largest wetland in Majorca, and Balneario de Sant Joan which are hot springs for bathing. If the island's salt plains fascinate you, pop along to Sa Salinera, the salt factory where you can see enormous salt heaps. A lovely little fishing village to explore is Sa Rapita and Cala S'Arenal de Sa Rapita which has a gorgeous beach.

Campos is spoilt for choice when it comes to restaurants but one I particularly like is Es Brot, which serves very traditional Majorcan fare as well as international and French dishes and the best and most mouth watering desserts in the area. Sa Canova, a family run joint is also of a high standard for fish and cooked meats, as is Ca 'n Calent, run by two brothers, whose passion for food and wine is apparent in their high standard of cuisine.
