Flights land in the nearby capital city of Palma. A 20-minute taxi ride is your best option for getting to Santa Ponsa. You can take a bus for less money, but the trip will take a couple of hours — you must make a lot of stops and change buses, with no direct route to Santa Ponsa.

History

King James I landed in Santa Ponsa on Sept. 12, 1229, to take control from the Moors, who had ruled Santa Ponsa for 300 years. This conquest is what inspires the fiesta every year. Santa Ponsa and Mallorca, after King James’s conquest, became part of the Kingdom of Aragon before it later became part of the Spanish Kingdom, where it remains today.

The Santa Ponsa resort area is on the southwest coast of Mallorca, a Mediterranean island off the coast of Spain. Palma, the capital of Mallorca, is little more than 11 miles from the resort. Santa Ponsa is a popular resort area, particularly among the British and offers visitors many opportunities for entertainment and recreation.

Entertainment

Nightlife is abundant in Santa Ponsa with its numerous bars — many of which are English-speaking or have British themes. Nightclubs often feature live shows and karaoke nights. Eat at one of Santa Ponsa’s many restaurants, with options for a romantic dinner for two or a family affair. If you come to Santa Ponsa around Sept. 10, you’ll see the 10-day fiesta with parades that begin at the marina, go through town and end on the beach.
