Costa dels Pins Beach

We’ll guide you through the magnificent beauty of the island and show you the charming local peculiarities and you’ll be enchanted by this place!

As its name suggests, the Costa dels Pins (Pine Tree Coast) is on a slope running down to the sea from the island’s Llevant Mountains. These mountains run from the county of Artà to Felanitx in a discontinuous chain that never rises above six hundred metres. The mountain behind the resort protects it from the north winds and separates it from the town of Canyamel in the municipality of Capdepera.
The Costa dels Pins juts into the sea and has a multitude of coves, the best known of which are Sa Marjal and Es Rajolí. They are perfect for those looking for a quiet beach and ideal for snorkelling and diving to see the marine fauna of our coast. A very popular spot with visitors is the Cap des Pinar lookout point, to the north of the Costa dels Pins, with its spectacular views over the whole of Cala Millor bay. There are also attractive hiking routes that link the Costa dels Pins with Canyamel.
The Costa dels Pins is mainly a residential zone with many luxurious houses and is famous for its architecture. Its residents include a large number of well known artists and captains of industry who have chosen this area for their summer residences. It has a small shopping centre with a couple of shops and restaurants, an emblematic hotel, an 18-hole golf course and, of course, unbeatable scenery. The small shopping centre is to the north of the main beach and can be reached on foot, by public bus or on the mini tourist train.

History and Culture of Banyalbufar

The name Banyalbufar is a combination of Moorish and Catalan and means founded by the sea. This area was inhabited and cultivated by the Moors in the 10th century who created around 2000 terraces on the mountain slopes and a sophisticated irrigation system of aqueducts which still work today.

The area was famous for the cultivation of the highly prized Malvasier or Malvasia grape variety for wine production, which modern vintners in Banyalbufar are now successfully re-establish. It is said that this wine was highly prized by the King of Aragon and was a motivating factor in the re-conquest of Mallorca by Jaume I.

Today Banyalbufar remains a quiet place surrounded by many other charming mountain villages to explore.

Major Attractions in Banyalbufar

The journey to Banyalbufar and its surrounding villages is an attraction in its own right. The magnificent views, along the winding roads which stretch down to the coast are breathtaking, with mountain peaks and dramatic rock structures.

The surrounding area also contains other villages of note such as the pretty village of Estellencs which is popular with hikers and bikers.

Cala Torta, Estreta, Mitjana

Cala Torta which is close to Artà, is one of the most appealing undeveloped beaches on Mallorca. Scuba-diving and snorkelling are highly recommended in this area. All of these three beaches are quite remote so be prepared for a bumpy ride through a small mountain range which takes about 25-30 minute on a road full of huge potholes. The reward is a virtually deserted white beach with crystal clear water. A small restaurant offers freshly caught fish and seafood from the Mallorcan waters. Perhaps one of best places to relax on the island. Directions: Drive out of Artà on the road to Capdepera and the beaches are signed on a small road on the left just past a petrol station.

What to see

The village

One of the main attractions in Banyalbufar is the views. Both the town itself and other smaller towns in the area are beautiful to visit and have stunning views for being located in mountainous areas. Just travelling the region by car is meaningful as the winding roads allow us to enjoy the spectacular scenery in the region.

Awaiting in the town centre is part of its historical value. It is highly recommended to take a walk to experience the waterfall and Tower of Ses Ànimes, a historic tower built in the 17th century as a defence mechanism against potential pirate attacks.

Wineries and vineyards

Banyalbufar is really unique. The town has enjoyed the eagerness of its very active population dedicated mainly to the cultivation of grapes, specifically the Malvasia grape, highly appreciated by regional winemakers.

Visiting some of the wineries and enjoying the different stores will be a fulfilling experience. Among them we have the Son Vives winery, whose wines are produced on terraces that have been hand-carved on the slopes of the town. Also Celler Ca’n Pico, which is surely the smallest and most exclusive winery in Mallorca. The vineyards, which are one of the main attractions of this town, can also be visited.

Es Port des Canonge harbour

It is a very picturesque fishing harbour and one of the most unique on the island. Here you will be faced by the impulse of grabbing your camera and taking as many photos as possible as the landscape is breathtaking. It is also a cove with abundant posidonia remains and gravel, where you can swim if the waters are calm.

What to do

Trekking

Nature lovers and those interested in sports activities in the mountains may enjoy a hiking route that goes from Banyalbufar to the beautiful harbour of Es Port des Canonge. The route is well-marked, so no worries.

Beaches

The beaches and coves are other great attractions of the area. In general, the entire coastal area of ​​the region is very attractive for its proximity to the mountains and forests in the Sierra de Tramuntana mountain range.

Cala Banyalbufar is a beautiful cove with a wild flare that will make nature lovers have the best time of their lives.

Es Corral Fals is an impressive cove surrounded by the stunning and radical combination of mountain and sea coming together to shape to life a truly spectacular landscape. A must-see.

Son Bunyola: this beach is 400 metres on foot from Port des Canonge, where the prevailing presence of cliffs of reddish tones lingers. The beach has thick pebbles and gravel.

Where to eat

This town has plenty of options to enjoy first-class food. Just like Mallorca, Banyalbufar has also benefited from the great influence of foreigners visiting and such trend has reached the hospitality industry.

This is why now, we can find a restaurant such as 1661 Cuina de Banyalbufar, whose owners, two German brothers, offer exquisite dishes. This establishment has without a doubt become a reference not only in Banyalbufar, but throughout Mallorca.

Son Tomás is another option of us to enjoy good food on the island. This restaurant has been awarded the Bib Gourmand distinction by the famous Michelin Guide for its high quality and affordable prices.

As a matter of fact, by just walking around town, we will be able to find many bars and cafés in which to savour a varied range of tapas and authentic Mediterranean food made with local products.

Where to lodge

This town is perfectly prepared to welcome the yearly touristic demand, so it will not be hard for you to find accommodation in one of the charming small hotels available. The different rural accommodations grant the visitor the unbelievable experience of being and resting in nature while getting away from the hustle and bustle of big cities.

The weather

Banyalbufar has a typical Mediterranean climate. However, its location near the Sierra de Tramuntana mountain range attributes it certain particularities, still managing to maintain pleasant temperatures throughout the year. Tourists who want to get away from the excessive heat in other touristic areas in Spain will find here a perfect place to enjoy themselves all year round, especially during spring and until the end of summer.

Surroundings

Estellencs is a town near Banyalbufar, just about 15 minutes by car. This town has a unique and fascinating landscape that is a worthwhile stop. Its proximity to the Galatzó Mountain makes it a special place and will surely amaze you.

Deià, Valldemossa and Esporles are other towns in the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range near Banyalbufar that will not disappoint you.

Puigpunyent, with its Puig de Galatzó and the Puig de Galatzó Natural Reserve, is a perfect place for hikers, but also for other people longing for nature.
