Located on the southwest coast of Mallorca, Peguera is a charming seaside town known for its beautiful beaches, bustling marina, and lively nightlife.

With a wide range of accommodation, restaurants, and activities, it’s an ideal destination for a sunny Mediterranean getaway.


Peguera is part of the municipality of Calvià and is located approximately 25 kilometres from Palma.

Originally a small fishing village, it began developing into a tourist resort in the 1960s and is now one of Mallorca’s most popular beach destinations.

The town itself is centred around a pretty bay sheltered by rocky headlands on either side.

A palm-lined promenade runs the length of the beach, which is made up of soft golden sand and clear shallow waters – perfect for swimming and sunbathing.

Behind the beachfront are tree-shaded streets filled with shops, bars, and restaurants.

Two beaches flank the main beach – Platja des Carregador to the west and Platja Tora to the east. Further afield are the charming coves of Cala Fornells, Cala Boix, and Cala Egos.

While Peguera has a laidback, low-key atmosphere during the day, after dark it comes alive with buzzing bars, restaurants, and nightclubs that stay open late into the early hours.

Families and couples tend to congregate around the marina and promenade area, while younger crowds head to the infamous BCM nightclub in Magaluf.
