Paguera

Peguera – also known as Paguera – is a holiday resort in the municipality of Calvià, Mallorca, and has been nicknamed “Little Germany” due to its popularity with German visitors. The resort is located about six kilometres north of Santa Ponsa and near Camp de Mar and consists of three fine sandy beaches: Peguera Romana, Torà and Palmira de Peguera – all amenities appreciated by holidaymakers looking for a day of sun, sea and fun. Peguera is also a good place to stay if you want to explore the nature of southwest Mallorca, as there is good access to hiking trails and it is also within easy reach of some of the villages in the Serra de Tramuntana. The municipality is very international; Peguera is known for its cleanliness and in the centre of Peguera you will find all kinds of services and restaurants for tourists. Peguera also has direct access to the motorway to Palma, which is only thirty minutes away.

Shopping – The shopping is mainly in Avenida Peguera, which is not directly by the sea (where there are more restaurants and bars), but parallel to the seafront. Here you will find all kinds of clothes and accessories for a day at the beach, but also gift articles and leather goods. There are also supermarkets and grocery shops.
