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.
Situated just a few kilometres from Cala Millor, S’Illot is one of the finest Talaiotic sites to be found on the island, although the caves of Ses Crestes and Ses Pedreres provided shelter and refuge for even earlier inhabitants, who lived there around 1500 BCE.
A 17th century square fortified tower stands at one end of Punta de n’Amer. Formerly part of the coastal defences, today it houses a small museum and offers visitors breathtaking sea views.
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).
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.
