The 145 km2 that make up the municipality of Calvià are located in the western part of the island of Mallorca. For its geographical position Calvià possesess one of the most fascinating parts of the Majorcan coast with 26 beaches, each with its own special characteristics, however that is not all, because it also has an inner land area of particular beauty. Here you can enjoy magnificent landscapes of mountains amongst pine trees, almond trees and all types of native vegetation.
The origins of Calvià date back to the prehistoric era, good examples of this are the archaeological remains found at various sites. The most important one is “Puig de Sa Morisca”. However, the first document where the name of Calvià appears on, corresponds to the period of Muslim reign in the island. It was also at our municipality where there was another indisputable historical fact of relevance: the arrival of King Jaume I in 1229.
The population of our town is mostly young, circumstance that gives us unique characteristics. This population is distributed in different nuclei, some coastal and other interior: Cas Catala, Illetes, Bendinat, Portals Nous, Palmanova, Magaluf, Son Ferrer, El Toro, Calvià Vila as Capdellà, Galatzó, Santa Ponsa, Costa de la Calma Peguera.
All these zones are perfectly connected by a road network that allows fast and comfortable trips to the rest of the island. We also have a park way: “Passeig Calvià”, its philosophy of construction responds to the criteria to prioritize pedestrian traffic over vehicles. Our economy is based primarily on tourism, and only some pockets of production like agricultural and livestock remain.
The tourist infrastructure of our town is one of the most important in Europe. Its constant development allows us to offer a wide range of services not only in terms of hotel facilities but also complementary services of both sport and leisure.
