With a wide offer of accommodation, restaurants and supermarkets, the touristic area of Siesta is perfect for those looking for a quiet stay in a landscaped setting with access to the sea. Its shoreline is graced by a cove known as Es Caló de s’Alga, a small sandy beach with tranquil waters, ideal for children or for spending a relaxing day at the beach. The cove also has a rocky corner – great for snorkelling – and affords panoramic views across to the wooded cliffs of Cala Llonga.
What to see in Siesta
All of Santa Eulària’s attractions are just a stone’s throw from Siesta thanks to its nearness to the town centre. You can even do without cars and buses if you choose, as a charming walkway joins both areas via a bridge that spans the river mouth and then carries on to the main waterfront. A path that runs by the bridge, known as The River Route, allows visitors to learn about the importance this waterway had for the development of the town. The path leads to an old flourmill, today repurposed as the River Interpretation Centre Can Planetes.
What to do in Siesta
If you like cycling, you can take circular route nº 8, which starts in Siesta and goes to Cala Llonga, or else head down to the river to try route nº6, which takes you to Santa Gertrudis. If you’re more of a walker, you might want to choose walking route nº6, which circles Can Fita Hill on its way to Santa Eulària des Riu, where you can also pick up routes nº 2 and nº 4.
