Colonia Sant Jordi

Colonia Sant Jordi is situated on the south-eastern coast of Mallorca and is part of the Ses Salines district. It is also sometimes referred to as Port de Campos, since the main town of the area, Campos, is nearby. Originally the town of Colonia Sant Jordi was an agricultural and fishing villageand, together with neighbouring Ses Salines, is famous for the extraction of salt. Salt is still extracted using traditional methods each year during a festival in August.

Colonia de Sant Jordi is today a busy resort. The fishing harbour is still a major part of the town and its small beach looks out over several small islands. Boats run regularly during the summer months to the National Maritime Park of Cabrera, an archipelago of islands about 6 miles to the south. This is a wonderful opportunity to see some of Mallorca’s untouched flora and fauna and swim amongst some of the protected ecosystems in the waters below.

This part of Mallorca has some of the most magnificent and unspoilt beaches on the island, possessing white sands and sheltered waters. The beach of Sa Platja des Port is located next to the marina and fishing port of Colonia Sant Jordi, and offers excellent facilities. However, either side of the town are the fabulous beaches of Ets Estanys, Es Trenc, Es Dolç and Es Carbó, which are widely regarded as being the best beaches on the island. The Spanish Royal family are known to come and relax at Es Carbó.

The beach of Es Trenc is the busiest of all the beaches in the area. It is relatively sheltered and therefore has small waves and ideal for swimming or snorkelling. This stretch of beach is very long and one side is given over to naturist sunbathers. Next to the marina is the Platja d’Es Port which is another busy but sheltered beach. Both the beaches of Es Carbó and Ses Roquetes are very quiet and well sheltered from the wind and waves.

Colonia Sant Jordi is one of the most sportive resorts on the island and is home to the BEST Centre training facilities. The 50m outdoor swimming pool is an outstanding training camp for amateur to professional racers. Colonia Sant Jordi hosts an Olympic distance triathlon each year.

The coast offers the possibility of long walks, with the hike to the lighthouse of Cap de Ses Salines offering spectacular views across the bay and over to the Isla de Cabrera.
