Yes, here we are again. No, we can’t get enough of Mallorca. And as we want you to make the most of your time on the island and there is really SO MUCH to see when visiting this Mediterranean gem, we’ve recently thought about a new way to showcase some of the beautiful towns and villages there are on this island.
The Nakar pocket guide to Deià
You’ve got a few days and just want to see it all. We know how that feels. This is why we needed to offer you a solution to check out some of Mallorca’s most stunning towns and villages with a plan. Don’t waste any precious time, just follow our pocket guide and take home a bunch of cool memories!
Deià: culture and charm in the Tramuntana
Deià is a beautiful little village located in the middle of the Tramuntana mountain range, being a delight to your eyes just by existing. It has been home to many artists over the past decades due to its boho vibes and very special charm. We definitely can see ourselves giving into our artistic side for a while after taking a long walk on its cobbled streets.
As Deià is a rather small village, you will be able to see what it has to offer in a couple hours. Our advice? Walk through its narrow streets, check out local shops filled with crafty good to take home and go all the way up until you get to the cemetery, because hey… those views!
Stop for a quick bite and something to drink at local bar ‘Sa Fonda’: as authentic as it gets. Sa Fonda will always make you smile, as there is just a good atmosphere going on. Live music and legendary parties are actually always part of the program at Sa Fonda, but you can also just stop by for a snack, including tapas, pa amb oli, burgers and cakes on its beautiful terrace.
Another must visit in Deià is the house of Robert Graves. This poet and author lived in Deià from 1929 until his death in 1985. The Robert Graves Foundation acquired his home and adapted it for visitors to learn more about Graves’ biography and work.
No visit to Deià would be complete without a lunch at Cala Deià. The little cove belonging to the village is home to one of our favorite restaurants: Ca’s Patro March. If you decide to walk from the village to the cove, it will take you about 30 minutes, if you’re not into walking, there’s a parking 5 minutes away from the restaurant. Fresh fish with a view. We’ll take it!
To wrap it all up we must send you to your last stop (you can also do it at the beginning to avoid a larger crowd): Na Foradada. A little bar and also a restaurant can be found located on a cliff edge with the most stunning views in the area. It’s definitely one of the best sunset-spots on the island, making it well worth a visit.
