Making the short resort transfer from the airport is for most visitors fairly painless, once you have collected your luggage and
cleared customs that it, as the main Autovia de Poniente motorway will take you to within a few kilometres of the resort centre.
Normally this journey should take between 30 to 40 minutes, however, this can and often does vary, depending upon the time of day and the sheer volume of traffic on the Palma motorways.
As with the other resorts on the island, a more detailed version of this route, complete with links to maps where appropriate, is available from the Route Map link on the left hand frame of this page.
Although very close to the busy resorts of Magaluf and Santa Ponça, Cala Vinas could be in a parallel universe, as it is one of the most peaceful spots on the island.
Built around an absolute jewel of a cove with a sheltered beach of fine white sand, Cala Vinas is in the area of the island which enjoys its own micro climate, and where the sun shows its face at least 300 days every year.
The close proximity of Cala Vinas to some of the more developed resorts along the south coast, also provides numerous opportunities for a variety of attractions, entertainment and sports activities. Less than 2km away at its nearest point, is Magaluf, the resort that never sleeps, here there are numerous restaurants and bars, as well as night clubs and discos for the night owls, and in Puerto Portals, a little further away to the east, can be found some of the most celebrated, fine dining restaurants on the island.
For families, there are two very popular and child friendly water parks, Aqualand and Western Water Park - which has a Wild West theme - on the outskirts of Magaluf, as well as the Gran Casino which stages musical shows combined with fine dining.
From time to time some well established, quality international crooners pop up on the programme which can prove quite an unexpected treat. In addition it offers many forms of gentle gambling opportunities, including poker, roulette and black jack.
Also nearby is the evergreen Pirates Adventure Show at which highly professional international acrobats, magicians, dancers and singers perform to mainly British audiences. One certainly doesn’t come here for the food but the show is well worth the effort.
A little further east, at Palma Nova, Fantasia Golf, the island’s best mini golf course, provides fun and games in a setting amid cliffs, caves and water features. Adjacent is a garden dedicated to birds of prey. For serious golfers, there are also several championship courses in the vicinity such as at Poniente, Bendinat and Santa Ponça.
Beyond Palma Nova, at Portals Nous, Marineland which offers daily sea lion and dolphin shows is a well loved attraction for families. For those who enjoy shopping, Andratx further along the western coast, holds a regular weekly market on a Wednesday and has some interesting and classy gift shops.
Palma itself is also a perfect excursion for delving into Mallorca’s historical past, visiting the famous gothic cathedral, La Seu, the Almudaina Palace and on the hills beyond Cala Mayor, Castell Bellver, which is the only circular castle in Spain.
