Ca’s Patro March

It's super well know due to it's stunning location perched above the sea at Cala Deia. But if you arrive in time for a seat you can't go wrong with a seafood lunch at this unassuming little restaurant by the sea.

Hoposa Hotel Costa D'or

Set in pine forest and overlooking the sea with some spectacular views, this adults-only hotel is a great option but a car will be necessary to get in and out of Deia.

Cala Llucalcari

While most people head to Deia those in the know head to Lluclari for equally stunning vibes in a much calmer and quieter cove. Access and parking are harder to come by so do your research beforehand.

Hike to Sa Foradada

Sunset at Son Marroig

Has to be one of the most amazing sunsets on on Mallorca. As the sun goes down in the west, this spot feels custom made for enjoying the golden hour.

    Sunset drink at Restaurante Mirador.

    A magical restaurant overlooking the ocean, this would also have to be one of our all time favourite sunset spots on the island.

    Walk the narrow streets

    It's one of the easiest and free activities to do in Deia. Simply stroll from one end to the other and poke around the narrow streets off the main road taking in what we think is the prettiest village on Mallorca.
