The prosperous town of Calvià, located to the west of Palma, is the centre of the Calvià region, which is strongly developed for tourism. The town itself, however, is hardly touristy. It is rather quiet here and the immediate surroundings are well suited for hiking. The small town of just under 2000 inhabitants is about 20 minutes by car to the west of Palma. A seemingly endless rocky coastline in the south and extensive wooded areas in the interior make this an ideal starting point for various recreational and leisure activities in the immediate surroundings. Calvià benefits financially from the high visitor numbers of well-known surrounding holiday centres, such as Magaluf, Palma Nova, Paguera or Santa Ponsa. A trip to the small town of San Telmo (Sant Elm), which is located at the south-western tip of Mallorca, is recommended. From here you can take a boat trip to the island of Sa Dragonera. On the way there, it is worth stopping in the nice little town of Andratx.
