Although most of the tourism in Mallorca is concentrated on the southwestern and northern areas of the island, the southeastern municipalities are of great tourist interest, specially the townships of Campos and Santanyi.
Campos’s economy is based primarily on agriculture, which has given rise to a series of fairs and livestock exhibitions which are held throughout the year. In fact, next weekend Sa Rapita 2013 festivities start with photography exhibitions, Majorcan dances, parades or even chess tournaments.
Sa Rapita is one of the urban centres of Campos, it is a coastal village formed by detached and semi-detached houses located at the seafront and close to some of the most beautiful beaches in Mallorca, among them Sa Rapita, Es Trec or Ses Covetes. Besides, the village of Sa Rapita is surrounded by virgin areas with trekking routes which will allow you to discover one of the best coastal areas in Mallorca. In the Marina Skorpios Hotel you will be able to combine this trekking offer with a wide sport and entertainment activity programme which will make your holidays in the southwest of Mallorca a total success.
Unlike Campos, Santanyi’s economy is based on a combination of the tourist activities centred in Cala D’or, Portopetro and Cala Figuera and the industry of handcrafted stone, used in many of the typical Majorcan buildings. In Santanyi we find a wide range of archeological sites and typical Majorcan circular “talaiots”, among them the Talaiot de Son Danus, Talaia des Carnitx or Calonge necropolis.
Also in Santanyi we find one of the many natural spaces of the Balearic Islands, Mondrago Natural Park, an special area for the protection of birds and of great ecological richness. It is a perfect option for a family trip in which children will discover some of the indigenous species of the island and get in touch with nature. Furthermore, in the Marina Corfu Hotel you will be able to enjoy the special family rooms, with 20 square metres of surface, sea views and all the necessary services for an unforgettable family stay.
