Wet and wild
All three of Paguera’s beaches have fantastic watersports facilities. You’ll be able to go windsurfing, head out on a pedal boat as well as do some snorkelling and explore the underwater sea life. There is also a diving centre in Paguera where professional divers can take you out into the water to show you around submerged wrecks and hidden coves. Holidays to Majorca often have many hidden gems, so even if you’re a regular visitor, you’re bound to find something new.
If you hop aboard one of the glass-bottomed boats that set out from Paguera it will sail along the coast to the nature reserve at Dragonera Island. Dragonera Island is a great place for a day trip and is the home of several Roman ruins and a museum. If that whets your appetite, you could sign up for a two to four hour cruise that follows the southern coast of Majorca.
Food and entertainment
You’ll find most of Paguera’s restaurants and bars down the side-streets and along the main boulevard in town. Because of the large number of German tourists visiting the resort, many of the eateries serve German cuisine.
If this doesn’t take your fancy there are also Spanish and Italian restaurants as well as British pubs providing full English breakfasts. You can even grab some food on the go at one of the many takeaways available.
Paguera has a lively nightlife scene with plenty of bars and clubs scattered throughout the resort. The clubs and discos are open until the early hours of the morning, with DJs playing the most current tracks.
Paguera is home to the most visited tennis venue on Majorca, so if you’re a tennis enthusiast this is a must.

Even for less seasoned players, there’s the chance to have private lessons, tactical training or attend one of the adult or junior camps. If you’re on a family holiday to Majorca, children’s tennis lesson are regularly available, and an afternoon of tennis is a great afternoon activity.
This hilltop resort is full of natural beauty and scenic landscapes. One of the best ways to see the sites is to go on a hiking tour. So you can lace up your walking boots and make the trek from Paguera to the nearby resort of Camp de Mar, with its unrivaled beaches. After that, continue over the mountains to the exclusive resort of Port d’Andratx and there’s a chance to marvel at its Italian-style villas and superb yachting marina.
If you’re looking for some Majorcan festival fun, take a drive to the neighbouring town of Andratx, just five kilometres away. There are numerous festivals taking place here all year round from Easter celebrations to spring carnivals.
Most of the festivals consist of open air cinemas, street parties, fireworks and folk dancing in the evenings. One of the most popular of which happens on 16th July to celebrate the patron saint of fishermen, Virgen del Carmen. During this festival, boats are decorated with bright colours and displayed in a parade around the Port D’Andratx harbour.
