The purpose-built holiday resort of Sa Coma lies in the heart of Majorca's popular east coast, sandwiched between lively Cala Millor and the restaurant-strewn seafront of S'Illot. S'Illot can be reached on foot, while a tourist tram connects to Cala Millor and its attractions. Sa Coma itself is largely frequented by British families, and the resort establishments cater particularly well for children, who make the most of the wide sandy beach with its broad shallow shelf of clear, blue water. The beach has European Blue Flag status for cleanliness, water quality and safety. The beach is fronted by a wide promenade lined with restaurants, bars and shops.
There is plenty to do in Sa Coma and surrounding resorts other than lounge on the beach, though this is the main reason most families choose to holiday here. Apart from a host of water sports there are several 18-hole golf courses, tennis and squash courts, horse-riding, mini-golf, bowling, go-carting, and cycling facilities. Children especially enjoy the Golf Paradis 54-hole mini golf course set among fountains, waterfalls and palm trees, and the Cala Millor safari park.
Sa Coma is not a good choice for holidaymakers who are seeking the bright lights, nor for those who find concentrations of children annoying. Being a family holiday resort, the nightlife in Sa Coma is low key, entertainment being mainly hotel based but there are a selection of local bars if you want to head out. Neighbouring Cala Millor offers a more lively after-dark scene for those interested.
Sa Coma offers a varied selection of good quality restaurants for holidaymakers to enjoy, and just across the footbridge on the S'Illot seafront even more options are available.
Self-catering holidaymakers will find a good selection of food at the Caprabo hypermarket on the Avinguda de les Palmeres in Sa Coma. The resort and its neighbours have numerous shops and boutiques selling souvenirs and goods attractive to tourists. For a traditional market take the bus to the nearby town of Son Servera on Friday mornings.
Sa Coma is approximately a 60 minute transfer from the airport
