Travel Agent's View

Travel Agents View once a small, traditional fishing village that has had to grow over the years to cater for the increasing number of tourists

Son Servera is located on the eastern coast of Majorca, just 60km from the airport and a few kilometres from the busy resort of Cala Millor.

The resort was once a small, traditional fishing village that has had to grow over the years to cater for the increasing number of tourists. There are some bars in the resort but most of the entertainment tends to be hotel based but I'm sure you would find more nightlife in neighbouring resorts.

Son Severa golf club is one of the best known on the island and there is a waterpark and Marineland nearby so there is plenty to do for the whole family.

Majorca Insider I never understand why guide books fail to mention this wonderful jewel of a historic town

I never understand why guide books fail to mention this wonderful jewel of a historic town in Majorca's northeast which has so much going for it. It has the most beautiful pedestrianised leafy and bijoux square on which sits the old church and bell tower of Sant Joan Baptista which was built in 1699. There are some first rate bars branching off from the square such as modern Italian tapas and wine bar, Olio Peperoncino, and the town has many intriguing narrow, shady streets which are worth investigating.

Son Servera is famous for being the birth place of one of my favourite artists, Miquel Vives, whose impressionist work focuses very much on his home town. He was born here in 1937 and is a much celebrated artist on the island. A curious sight to behold in the town is Església Nova, literally meaning new church. This extraordinary and striking neo-gothic structure set in a verdant pasture on Carrer de les Creus was designed by a student of the famous architect, Antoni Gaudi, in 1905 and was supposed to be a magnificent creation and landmark for the town but alas, funds ran out and the building remained unfinished. Son Servera is famed for its vibrant little Friday market and also for its musical band which attends many events on the island and is highly acclaimed. There are excellent restaurants in Son Servera but one of my favourites is Binicancella, which is on the site of an old monastery and serves up delicious meat prepared in wooden ovens. It's particularly nice to sit by the log fire on a cool night.

Not far from the town are some fantastic sandy beaches such as those at Cala Millor or Cala Bona. An added attraction for golfers like my husband, is the proximity of two exceptionally fine championship golf courses, Pula and Golf Son Servera, the former home to the Majorca Classic. If you have a hire car, pop along to lively Cala Ratjada to the north via the beautiful Costa de los Pinos headland, and visit the Caves of Arta en route, or to the south to Porto Cristo, an old fishing village, where you can visit the famous Coves del Drach.

Son Servera is not renowned for its night life, but if you're in the mood for a bop there is Disco Karussell in Cala Millor which offers an international mix of modern music laced with Caribbean and Brazilian dancers, illusionists and hypnotists.
