Colonia de Sant Jordi Properties for sale
Colónia de Sant Jordi is a former fishing village and belongs to the municipality of Ses Salines, in the southeastern corner of Mallorca. The beautiful and quiet beaches, all surrounded by nature reserves, are among the main attractions of Colònia de Sant Jordi. Here you can discover some of the most beautiful and unspoiled natural areas within the ecosystem of Mallorca. To the west, the island's longest natural beach, the Es Trenc, joins Colònia de Sant Jordi. Extensive pine forests frame the protected beaches. The coastal area with its rocky islands, pristine fine sandy beaches and lush vegetation is bathed in crystal clear water. Today, the city relies heavily on tourism as a source of income and modern skyscrapers alternate with traditional stone townhouses. There is a lot to see and do in the surrounding area of Colonia Sant Jordi, especially during the holiday season. Then several beaches compete for the bathers, including the lively Platija d'Es Port at the large marina and the more tranquil bays Es Caragol, Es Carbo and Ses Roquetes, which are protected from wind and lure with calm waters. Boat trips to the island of Cabrera in Mallorca enjoy great popularity, as well as diving tours to this protected national park. Throughout the year, Colonia Sant Jordi is home to a diverse, international community, but the hustle and bustle is noticeable outside of the season. To live here is the clear contrast between the busy summer and quiet winter months - typical of much of the southeast of Mallorca. That is why primarily holiday properties are sought here. Nowadays, Colonia de Sant Jordi counts almost 3,000 inhabitants and is known as the lively destination of Majorca. However, those who believe that the community is overcrowded and heavily frequented are wrong. In Colònia de Sant Jordi original Mallorcan flair meets modern accents. The promenade is connected to the magical harbor, in which predominantly Majorcan Llauts are anchored. Cafés, restaurants and shops line up here.
