Costa d’en Blanes: the Mediterranean at your feet
The small locality of Costa d’en Blanes in south-western Majorca is one of the island’s exclusive neighbourhoods. One part of it, south of the Ma-1 motorway, is right by the sea, while above the motorway, the other part nestles into the hillside – with really jaw-dropping houses that have spectacular views of the glamorous Puerto Portals marina and the sea as far as Palma. You can reach the capital Palma in no time at all by car – it’s only around eleven kilometres away. That’s one of the reasons this little place is so popular, especially among foreign residents who own their own property here.
Leisure, amusement and fun
Costa d’en Blanes means “coast of Blanes”, named after the wealthy Majorcan Blanes family. Beachgoers can enjoy the playa right in Costa d’en Blanes or have fun and frolics on the beaches of Portals Nous or Illetes. Speaking of fun, for families with children, a trip to the beach keeps everybody blissfully amused, but that’s not the only option you have. If the kids are into dolphins and sea lions, they can experience the marine mammals live in shows and get up close to them at the nearby marine park called Marineland Mallorca.
Clever clogs parrot
The park has much more too. There are performances with exotic birds like parrots, demonstrating their talents and tricks. Among them is a bright blue hyacinth macaw that can “do maths” brilliantly! No matter what task the trainer sets him, this bird knows the correct answer – much to the amusement of the kids. Meanwhile, the children themselves can delve into the depths of mathematics in the neighbouring locality of Portals Nous, where they actually have two international schools. This is an especially important criterion for foreign residents with young family if they are contemplating buying their own property in Costa d’en Blanes.
Golf, tennis, yoga
Golfers will be happy to know that they have the Real Golf de Bendinat golf course as well as the Santa Ponça golf courses not far away. In Costa d’en Blanes itself, active types will also find a large sports club that has various tennis courts and offers yoga as well. How about “Warrior” or “Cobra” pose while looking out at palm trees and a deep blue sea with snow-white yachts – you could probably live with that…
Properties in a sought-after location
You may be toying with the idea of a villa or an apartment, perhaps a second home or a place for holidaying on this sunny island. Here in the municipality of Calvià, Costa d’en Blanes is the perfect place if you’re a fan of all things nautical, you love Palma and you want a sea view! It’s also perfect if you relish the luxury of peace and quiet.
