Founded in around 1300, Santanyi’s heritage as a fortified coastal town is evident in the remains of the old city wall that can still be seen today. Today it is a very smart town with an interesting variety of local shops and restaurants reflecting its cosmopolitan nature.
Holiday visitors are mostly day trippers from near-by resorts such as Cala d’Or and Porto Petro. Santanyi is, however, very much an all-year-round place with a comprehensive selection of amenities and a good weekly market.
Journey time from Palma de Mallorca and the airport is around 40-50 minutes. Other popular Southeast Coast resorts such as Cala Figuera, Porto Petro and Cala d’Or are a short drive away.
