A true gem of a place! Little Colonia de Sant Pere sits at the end of the wide sweep of coastline that stretches from the more famous resorts of Puerto Pollensa and Alcudia. This little fishing village may be small but it packs a mighty punch on the facilities front with an excellent selection of around 12 restaurants and bars, a supermarket, a small white sandy beach, a busy little harbour and lovely coastal walks that lead to secluded beaches and coves. It's backed by a wild terrain of fig and olive trees that stretches up to a vast granite outcrop of rock.
No tall buildings will be found here, no large hotels, no flashy bars, in fact nothing to distract from the laid back, unpretentious feel of the resort.
Evening walks along the promenade, stretching from the harbour to the edge of the village, takes you past a number of restaurants that afford a 'to die for' view across the bay to Pollensa. Daytimes are spent cycling, walking or just lazing on the beach in that laid back 'I'm on holiday' type of way. No pressure here!
Further a long the coastline busier resorts such as C'an Picafort and Alcudia are easily on hand for day trips...if you can summon up the energy to leave the haven of peaceful little Colonia!
Spotlight Facts: When nearby Arta experienced one of the last outbreaks of bubonic plague in 1820 many of the survivors moved to the coast and built the settlement of Colonia de Sant Pere.
