Peguera, a tourist town in the southwest of Mallorca. Its three large sandy beaches and its promenade stand out.
Peguera means 'pitch oven'. Do not be alarmed. This term celebrates the locality's unique pine-pitch oven used for roasting almonds. Peguera is a charming Mallorcan tourist town. It is located in the island's south west in the municipality of Calvia. Neighbouring communities include Portals, Magalluf and Palma. Of the town's main attractions there must be included its inviting three principle beaches. Typical of the island's Mediterranean character are the white sands of these inviting beaches. Here, visitors spend many happy hours contemplating the crystal clear waters that sparkle and ripple along the beaches and promenade that link the various resorts of Calvia.
Other than its lovely beaches Peguera's Mallorcan reputation pivots on its attractive landscaped boulevard. This is a genteel thoroughfare that is noted for its relaxed atmosphere and window and shopping opportunities. Here you will discover bistros, restaurants and assorted eateries where shoppers and strollers can relax and people watch.
The sub-tropical climate complements perfectly the location's unhurried lifestyle. To help you to become part of its character feel free to sample the lifestyle and cuisine that tempts both tourists and residents. Many of these are open to the early hours. Perhaps an afternoon siesta to prepare you for the long lovely evening that beckons you would be prudent.
There are many leisure possibilities. Those keen on personal fitness and sport activities will not be disappointed at what is on offer. Included are a wide selection of water related leisure and sport opportunities. Hotels, loathe to lose their 'captive' audiences, will also tempt you with their many leisure and sporting facilities.
Whilst wandering the ethnic hamlet known as Cala Fornells we recommend visiting one of the nearby beaches. The village location is pleasingly reminiscent of traditional Mediterranean village life. There are wonderful palatial mansions including Possessio de Peguera that once belonged to the Bishop of Barcelona. Otherwise, the architecture tends towards daintiness. Such is the traditional ambience that it has attracted prestigious restaurants and stylish bistros.
