Visitors to Son Servera will soon discover that one advantage the town has is its location on the island. This is not necessarily in terms of its proximity to neighbouring towns and cities, but rather the sense of variation it can offer tourists. A point well made in the previous section noted how the vibrancy of Mallorca’s coastal resorts can be sampled alongside the tranquillity of more rural settlements without the need to spend a great deal of time travelling between places.
Furthermore, the towns close distance to the clean and sandy beaches located on the east of the island mean that this destination offers the attraction that is most likely to appeal to children and young families. In short, there is much to keep tourists of all interests occupied here.
Should you choose to base your stay in the town of Son Servera, then it is highly likely that you will visit the neighbouring town of Cala Millor. Set at a distance of around 3 km, it is easily within walking distance though should you wish, there are numerous taxi services that connect the two towns.
Cala Millor is often a firm favourite for families with young children owing to the cleanliness of its sandy beaches and warm, turquoise waters of the Mediterranean Sea. A particularly appealing feature of this resort is that it lacks the noisy party scene whilst retaining its own unique vibe. This makes way for a relaxed evening atmosphere, with a range of bars offering night time entertainment that usually finishes around midnight. This means that tourists are able to enjoy themselves in a fairly low key way that differs greatly to the wild scenes that occur elsewhere on the island.
For those that enjoy relaxing during the evenings in nearby restaurants, then you will be pleased to discover that Cala Millor offers a good variety on locally produced food set within authentic Mallorcan surroundings. The atmosphere here is friendly and sociable and a number of shops all offer the usual provisions tourists might require.
Another nearby town worthy of note is Cala Bona which is situated just outside of Son Servera and can be reached from Cala Millor either by an extremely picturesque coastal road or by the long, sandy beach itself! Rather like the later mentioned, this small, attractive town contains a flat promenade running alongside the beach which gives visitors a good reason to hire bicycles and explore the country lanes connecting sleepy villages across this peaceful region.
Cala Bona originates from a small fishing village, although in truthfulness, very little has changed since these times gone by. You will notice the lively harbour that forms the heart of the town; a bustling base for fisherman that plies the waters. Many of the days catches appear on the menus of local restaurants, which, like Cala Millor, offer a pleasant dining experience in relaxed surroundings.
Son Servera remains a popular destination for the more affluent in Spanish society, the reasons for which are quite clear. The peace and tranquillity the region has to offer, alongside the unique vibes of the aforementioned coastal resorts hold appeal to all. It is perhaps in light of this that several high profile golf clubs adjoined to luxurious hotels have been built nearby.
The most notable here include Pula and Golf Son Servera which is based in Costa de los Pinos. Set amongst beautiful scenery, both courses offer a reasonable challenge. For further information you are advised to contact the operators for each concerned.
In addition to the year round attractions discussed above, Son Servera is home to annual celebrations often seen throughout rural Mallorcan communities. Of particular interest is the celebration of Sant Joan. This is an event which typically lasts a whole week and is scheduled to begin on the summer solstice of each year.
Festivities typically include an agricultural and handicraft fair in addition to a farmers market. Furthermore, local customs are displayed with dancers performing traditional Mallorquine dance of Ball de Bot.
Additional festivals are also held in neighbouring towns of Cala Millor and Cala Bona. These include the Nostra Senyora del Carme and the Nostra Senyora dels Angels respectively. The former is a celebration with sea processions to honour the patron saint of seafarers and is held on the 16th of July, whilst the latter is a celebration of the patron saint, Lady of the Angels which is held on the 2nd of August annually.
A more regulary occurring event is the towns weekly market, held in Son Severa each Friday which offers a range of locally produced goods.
