Cala Moreya and S’Illot is an old fishing settlement turned resort, with mature buildings and streets overhung with great pine trees.
The streets of sleepy Cala Moreya were resurfaced and improved in 1992, though change here has not kept pace with boom town Sa Coma, with its newly landscaped and pedestrianised seafront and seemingly endless conveyor belt of hotels and apartments.
Whilst it is not exactly classy, it has certain pretentions of quality. As with all of the E coast resorts, it is not the best strategic base for excursions to other parts of the island although these are, of course, possible.
On the E coast, 42 mls E of Palma, slightly less from the airport, along a moderately good road. 3 mls NE of Porto Cristo. On flat land backed by low hills.
The beach at Sa Coma is exceptionally sandy , nearly half a mile long. The neighbouring one of Cala Moreya, in a bend of the coastline, is much smaller but also good.
There is no real shopping centre, but the size of the combined resort is small enough for this not to matter. Concentrations of shops and restaurants are found in Cala Moreya, another at the N extremity and a third, conveniently, near the mid point. No specialities but a selection of tourist bric-a-brac, boutiques and jewellery shops. Friday market in Son Servera; Tuesday in Arta.
Night activities include a spacious disco in the town, but also another state-of-the-art, outdoor “Nite City” just outside.
As with most of the resorts on this island German and British pubs compete for the patriotic trade. The typical fast food chains are here also, along with ample if predictable resort-type restaurants.
A day trip to Alcudia, Pollensa and Formentor can all be organised locally.
