Costa d'en Blanes Holidays

Travel Agent's View

Travel Agents View several good quality beaches and a number of shops, bars and restaurants

Costa D'en Blanes is a small resort which is partially residential. There are several good quality beaches and a number of shops, bars and restaurants but not much in the way of nightlife.

The resort offers lots of activities such as sailing, golfing, tennis and walking and cycling trails so there is plenty to keep everyone occupied.

The city of Palma is only 13 miles away and is a great place to visit with lots of historical buildings to see, great places to eat and lots of shops to wander around.

Also in the vicinity you will find water parks, Marineland and lots of nightlife for those who like things a bit livelier.

All in all, Costa D'en Blanes is an ideal place for a relaxing holiday with an abundance of activities close by.

Lying just southwest of Palma, along the coastal route to Andraitx, this residential area is much sought after by cosmopolitan expat property owners, the yachting fraternity and holidaymakers who prefer not to have to learn Spanish!

Whatever your preferences, this is a well preserved residential zone situated between the azure sea and the high range of pine clad hills inland where expensive white villas peep out from the trees. Along the coast is the very fashionable marina of Puerto Portals where the jet set hangs out at Café Cappuccino or enjoys a cool glass of wine and a salad lunch at Wellies restaurant. Aside from watching the beautiful people in Puerto Portals there are lots of activities to enjoy around here such as tennis and paddle tennis, water sports and boat charters.

Nearby is Marineland which is beloved by children of any age and has regular dolphin and sea lion displays and for golfers, the course at Real Bendinat is only a short distance away.

This area is also frequented by shopaholics because of its many fashionable boutiques, gift shops and imported British brands. I pop along here to Dunn's, the British butcher, for his delicious home prepared Cumberland sausages and the patisserie next door which offers a good selection of cakes and pastries. Close by in Portals Nous is one of my favourite haunts, the English Universal bookshop and the newsagent over the road which has a great supply of newspapers and international magazines. Puerto Portals has a wealth of glitzy outlets and its shopping mall resembles a rather pretentious small scale version of Bond Street with its wildly expensive men's and women's fashion stores.

This is one of the best served resorts for high quality and costly restaurants such as El Bistro de Tristan or Flannigan's but I usually go to Wellies overlooking the marina for hearty Anglo Spanish cuisine or Tahini, the chic Japanese inspired restaurant next to Cappuccino.
