Calvia occupies its place in the World Travel Market with the guarantee of experience as a holiday destination that commits, year after year, to improve the quality of services, to continuous renewal, to visitor safety and care and protection of the environment.

Sports, health and lifestyle tourism

In addition to the excellent weather and at least 300 sunny days a year, Calvia has spectacular landscapes that combine the coast and mountains and that are the backdrop for all kinds of sports activities. There is a wide range of municipal sports facilities, among which are the high level running track in Magalluf, the Calvia rugby field, the six indoor pools and the seven artificial soccer fields. Together, they provide several training options for international athletes.

In addition, there are private facilities: the three golf courses, the two tennis clubs and the four marinas.

Calvia has attractions such as the vast Galatzo park in the Tramuntana Mountains. This public "finca" has several hiking routes, and there are 32 kilometres of pedestrian ways that link different parts of Calvia and which enable a highly natural and healthy form of tourism.

Visitors to Calvia love the high quality of gastronomy, which is a fusion of the very best Mediterranean and Spanish cuisine with international. This is a gastronomy for all needs and its quality is emphasised by there being restaurants with Michelin Stars and those which have received other international recognition.

Tradition, history and the "fiesta" come together for major events like the Rei en Jaume fiestas, which recall the landing of troops under King James I of Aragon in Santa Ponsa and the conquest of Majorca.
