Peguera is a small tourist town in Calvià where you will be able to enjoy the sun, water activities, golfing, etc.
It is mainly a German resort, but in recent years more English are moving from Palma Nova towards this area on their holidays.
The pine trees in the area are particularly rich in resin.
Peguera means “tar oven”, which is used to manufacture resin, sand and wood into pitch.
This is used for sealing wine barrels and making the local fishing boats waterproof.
Peguera used to be the main port for transporting Almonds collected in Majorca to mainland Spain.
Nowadays its centre is a wide boulevard with shops, restaurants and bars, an idyllic place for a stroll with views of both the sea and the mountains.
The whole area is especially beautiful due to its impressive sea views and beaches with crystalline waters with an average temperature of 25ºC (77ºF) which make it a brilliant place to enjoy water sports, swimming and beach games.
Peguera has 3 beaches: La Romana, La Palmera and Tora, all awarded with the Q of “Quality” and blue European flags.
