Part of the municipal district of Campos, the small coastal town of Sa Rapita is situated along the central south coast of Mallorca. Sa Rapita is probably the closest town to one of Mallorca’s best beaches. Based on the south coast within the municipality of Campos, this small town has much to offer the discerning independent traveller or holiday home hunter.
Sa Rapita is not a popular tourist destination but attracts a sprinkling of independent travelers, plus locals ”in the know”, due to the exceptional beauty of the coastline. Sa Rapita is not on the main motorway network so it’s a little off the beaten track. This has helped preserve this area and older buildings are still very much a part of the character of this town.
The single biggest attraction to Sa Rapita is its proximity to the stunning, natural beach of Es Trenc. This beach stretches from Sa Rapita along the coastal strip and tiny town of Ses Covetes to the larger town of Colonia Sant Jordi.
Sa Rapita is a fairly quiet resort, but it is also a good location to explore the south and east of Mallorca. There are low key water sports available such as kayaking, snorkeling and wind surfing, but don’t expect the noisy novelty rides that you will find at some of the bigger, purpose-built resorts.
