Hilly landscapes, pine forests and charming villages with lots of history, but also spacious beaches and small bays, combined with a selection of top Golf courses and restaurants - this is the varied northeast of the island. Along the "Serra de Llevant" are historic villages like Capdepera even as beautiful beach resorts with long promenades to stroll along.
One of the most beautiful beaches of the northeast is the Cala Mesquida. A wide, fine sandy beach, followed by extensive dune landscape. Even with the directly adjacent to Cala Ratjada , with the Cala Agulla you find a well-tended beach, nestled in the rocky coast. The Cala Varques, very close to Port Cristo, is one of many lesser known, but beautiful bays that characterize the northeast of the island.
Particularly interesting are the two cities of Arta and Capdepera. A "must" in Arta is the ascent up to the spectacular church "San Salvador". The way up leads via a cypress-lined staircase with 180 steps. At the top, the viewer can expect a magnificent view, across almond orchards and olive groves up to the Bay of Alcudia. Around the "Plaza España" Arta shows itself from its best side, good coffee `s and bars, in a original scenery.
From far away you recognize Capdepera with its huge, well-preserved fortress, the "Castell de Capdepera". Also from here you can enjoy a magnificent view over across the varied landscape of the north-east coast.
Cala Ratjada offers art-lovers something special. The March family makes their art collection, gathered over decades, accessible to public audiences. At over 60,000 m2 of Mediterranean designed outdoor area you can admire works of Henry Moore, Max Bill, and many other international and national artists (www.fundacionbmarch.es).
A few kilometers away from the coast are the birthplace of the Spanish tennis player Rafael Nadal, Manacor. Every Monday, the local market is held here, placed in the old town. Visitors will find an interesting mix of Majorcan specialties. Of course Manacor also offers plenty of opportunities for shopping...
The northeast of the island has a total of 4 golf courses. Capdepera (www.golfcapdepera.com) is one of the most beautiful places. The 18-hole golf course stands out - due its location against a stunning mountain backdrop, its great greens as well as its embedded lakes. A highlight is the in Majorcan style built clubhouse. The golf course Canyamel (www.canyamelgolf.com) was completed in 1989 and the original stone - walls of the former agricultural area were included in the new design. On clear days you can see from some fairways even to the island of Menorca. The 18-hole course with par 73 has a total length of 6,185 meters. Son Servera offers two courses, Son Servera Golf (www.golfsonservera.com) and the Pula Golf Club, (www.pulagolf.com) both of them 18-hole golf courses. Last of both has a very demanding character and was in 2004 new designed. Now you can play on a total length of 5.676 meters at par 70.
