The seaside resort of Sa Coma is one of the most popular destinations on the east coast of the island Mallorca and can be easily reached by hired car. It is situated on a bay and offers holidaymakers a beautiful and well-kept sandy beach. Sa Coma, with its hotel buildings and beach promenade, gave the impression of a modern holiday resort that is increasingly merging with the well-known tourist centre Cala Millor. Many holidaymakers who choose Sa Coma as their location in Mallorca hire a hired car. It can be picked up upon arrival in Spain directly at Palma de Mallorca Airport (PMI). A good hour's drive by hired car is required for the almost 70 km from the island's capital to Sa Coma. The tour in a hired car takes you across the island, where travellers gain a variety of impressions of the Mallorcan landscape.

Also in autumn a trip to Sa Coma, Mallorca, is highly recommended. While it becomes quieter on the island and most tourists return home after intense hot weeks, you can start your holiday relaxed. Once you have picked up your cheap hired car locally, you can start your trip and sightseeing. For example, drive to the southeast of the island and visit the monastery "Santuari de Sant Salvador", founded in 1342. The monastery can be reached via a serpentine road and is located on the 509 meter high "Puig de Sant Salvador". Other attractions of the monastery complex are a seven meter high statue of Christ, an imposing stone cross and the Christ the King Monument, which was erected in 1934. Nearby you will find the towns of Portopetro and Cala Figuera. Here the "Parc natural de Mondragó" extends and includes dunes, cliffs, forests, agricultural land and hills. In autumn, a walk through this unspoiled nature is highly recommended.

But the little thrill is worth it as soon as one of the most beautiful panoramas of Spain unfolds before the amazed eyes of holidaymakers. Afterwards you can drive your car to one of the beautiful and lively beaches in the area.
