The seaside resort of Sa Coma is one of the most popular destinations on the east coast of the island Mallorca and can be easily reached by rental car. It is situated on a bay and offers holidaymakers a beautiful and well-kept sandy beach. Sa Coma, with its hotel buildings and beach promenade, gave the impression of a modern holiday resort that is increasingly merging with the well-known tourist centre Cala Millor. Many holidaymakers who choose Sa Coma as their location in Mallorca hire a rental car. It can be picked up upon arrival in Spain directly at Palma de Mallorca Airport (PMI). A good hour's drive by rental car is required for the almost 70 km from the island's capital to Sa Coma. The tour in a rental car takes you across the island, where travellers gain a variety of impressions of the Mallorcan landscape.
Caves in Mallorca
Why is a trip to Sa Coma in Mallorca in winter recommended? A trip during the winter months has various advantages. On the one hand, you may benefit from cheaper accommodation prices or even lower expenses for rental cars or airline tickets. On the other hand, the island is much less visited in December, January or February, so you can also enjoy the sights of the city in peace. For example, set off with your rental car to Porto Cristo. Three worth seeing dripstone caves are among the attractions around Porto Cristo: the "Dragon Caves" (Coves del Drac), the "Fishhook Caves" (Coves dels Harms) and the "White Caves" (Coves Blanques) not far from the beach of the popular seaside resort. In winter it is very fresh for a bathing vacation, but you can still take a walk on the beach without hesitation. Beaches like "Caló des Borgit", "Ses Fonts de n'Alís" or "S'Amarador" belong to the area, which is worth a visit in a rental car.
Sa Coma is a good starting point to discover the rest of the island. North of the peninsula of Artá and Cala Mesquida are some very well known holiday resorts and traditional cities, which are worth seeing. These include Can Picafort, Alcúdia and Port de Pollença. High in the northeast is a natural beauty that every holidaymaker on Mallorca should see: the Cap Formentor. In order to reach this spectacular viewpoint, it is necessary to master a drive on a serpentine road in your rental car. But the little thrill is worth it as soon as one of the most beautiful panoramas of Spain unfolds before the amazed eyes of holidaymakers. Afterwards you can drive your car to one of the beautiful and lively beaches in the area.
