Flora and Fauna
The natural, cultural and ecological treasures to be found at Punta de n’Amer, a headland nestling between Sa Coma and Cala Millor, have earned it the status of a Natural Area of Special Interest.
The local cuisine is renowned for its mouth-watering flavours and variety. Traditional dishes include frit de porc (stir-fried pork, potatoes and peppers), tumbet (Majorca’s version of ratatouille), arròs brut (a meat and vegetable rice dish) and sopes mallorquines (vegetables and meat simmered slowly with bread to soak up the stock).
Sobrassada is Majorca’s best-known cured meat, made from pork, bacon and paprika.
When it comes to sweets and pastries, nothing can compare with a delicious ensaïmada. Wound round to form a spiral shape, this exquisite pastry can be filled with a wide range of ingredients, such as cream, chocolate, confectioner’s custard and sweet pumpkin jam. Wine is also deeply rooted in the island’s cultural heritage; two regions have been awarded a Designation of Origin: Binissalem and Pla i Llevant.
Those of you eager for action will have great fun with the endless activities on offer in Cala Millor: horse riding, tennis, squash, padel tennis, football, karting, golf, shooting, scuba diving and fishing are just some of the options available to visitors, who can also explore the region´s many cycling trails.
