Banyalbufar, or Bañalbufar, offers a tranquil holiday base, with stunning views over the azure sea from the green slopes that the village is built on.
Banyalbufar, is located on the very west coast of Mallorca, nowhere near anything else in complete isolation from noise.
If your ideal holiday plans include peace and nature, Banyalbufar might just be what you’re looking for!
Banyalbufar, only offer a handful restaurants and cafes, to choose from. In return, you will be served some of the best Majorcan and Mediterranean dishes found on the west coast. Moreover, the price includes the most scenic atmosphere, as you take in the amazing views over the blue horizon.
When browsing through the accommodation offers in Banyalbufar, it is of utmot importance that you are aware that this area is quite isolated! I tell you this only because I know that it really gets quiet up here, no matter which time of year you visit.
What does this mean? It means, that if you do not rent a vehicle, you can very well feel too enclosed. It is not a bad thing, don’t get me wrong, its just that it’s important to know this early in your holiday planning.
The hotels up here, offers amazing services, amazing locations and amazing food! A personal recommendation, is the Hotel Sa Baronia, an old rebuilt palace.
Banyalbufar, has a great location when talking about activity offers. Here, in the center of the west coast, everything is like a playground to a fresh pair of legs.
Cycling, MTB, sports climbing and hiking, are some of the most popular activities people come here to experience.
If the idea of a beach appeals to you, this is actually an option too in Banyalbufar. Down by the feet of the steep slopes, you’ll find the Cala Banyalbufar, a 100 meter wide stone and sand beach. Note, there are no facilities down here.
You will have to look no further that just down the main road of the village, before the first sight appears. Sa Clastra de sa Baronia, is the old patio, belonging to the Hotel Sa Baronia, and open to the public. This old palace used to belong to the baroness, and this patio was the center of every event held.
Outside the village border, between Banyalbufar and Estellencs, you will find the popular tourist favourite, Torre es Verger. This beautiful and well-preserved watchtower dating back from the 16. century, has become a trademark of this area. You can climb the narrow metal stairs inside the tower to reach the platform on top, from where you can enjoy the amazing views all over the green and blue coastline.
Again, I have to advice you to rent a vehicle, at least for a day or two, in order to really see some of the treasures of the island.
Unfortunately, Banyalbufar does not have a weekly market due to the small size of the village. Instead, head to hearby Valldemossa for a traditional market on Sundays.
