Migjorn de Mallorca is a region of Mallorca.
It includes the following municipalities:
- Ses Salines
Migjorn is the southernmost region on the island of Mallorca. It has numerous beaches and bays that invite you to swim and sunbathe. Therefore, many tourist centers have developed in the region. The places were partly built out of the ground and are marked by building sins, but it's not as bad as in Playa de Palma. In addition, the main source of income for the residents of Migjorn comes from agriculture. There are even still fishermen, but here, as in many other places, the Mediterranean is very empty.
In the meantime, the need for nature conservation has also been recognized and efforts are made to combat environmental sins. Many areas, especially on the coast, have been declared nature reserves. Some are even closed to private traffic. The hotel ruins on Es Trenc show that they are serious. Here a court ruled that the building was unlawful, stopped the construction and ordered the demolition. Unfortunately, there is still no money for this today.
As on the whole island, the locals speak Mallorquí, a dialect of Catalan that is only very distantly related to the standard Spanish language. Mostly Spanish, English and German are spoken in the tourist centres. Off the beaten track, people tend to be understood only when they speak Spanish, and even then, they may not understand the dialect answer.
From Palma de Mallorca the MA-19 motorway leads to shortly after Llucmajor, then it becomes the main road MA-19, which leads through Campos to Santanyí. The MA-5020 leads from Campos to Felanitx, the MA-14 from Santanyí to Felanitx. This leads further north and you can reach Manacor.
From Santanyí the MA-6102 leads to Cala Figuera and the MA-6100 to es Llombards and on via Ses Salines to Colonia St. Jordi.
Migjorn has a well-developed bus network that is tailored to the needs of the residents. It is assumed that tourists take guided trips by coach, rather than public transport. If you really want to explore Migjorn by bus, you should definitely get an up-to-date timetable for all bus routes and pay attention to the special features of the bus routes, because not every bus stops at every location. You also have to be prepared for the fact that the buses are not air-conditioned.
For shorter distances you can also take a taxi.
The road network in Migjorn is well developed and in fairly good condition. Many small towns are very narrow, but that can get a lot worse in other places on Mallorca. With a rental car you can explore the whole region in two days.
