Majorca is famous for its theme parks, the famous Pirates Adventure Show and the Western Water Park are must visit attractions for both children and adults. Pirates Adventure takes the form of a Dinner/Show with a pirate theme, and has short dialogues in English throughout. Both theme parks are located in Magaluf, less than 30 minutes from Camp de Mar. Certainly well worth a mention in Camp de Mar is the Dragonera Natural Park and the Dragonera Island, which is really a 6km long rock that is named because of its likeness to a dragon’s back rising out of the water. . Regular boat trips leave from the Camp de Mar to make the short trip out to Dragonera Island, where there is a small museum and evidence of a Roman settlement at the Cova de sa Font.
There are a handful of excellent restaurants in Camp de Mar offering traditional Majorcan dishes as well as some British favorites. For every type of dining option imaginable head over to Magaluf and dine in atmospheric traditional Majorcan restaurants serving excellent seafood dishes or the numerous cafes and taverns.
Every Wednesday at nearby Andratx, except for public holidays and fiesta days, there’s a local street market with a good selection of locally produced fruit, vegetables and crafts on offer, but you’ll need to get there early and be prepared to haggle with the professionals to secure the best bargains. The marketplace in Andratx is also the site of the annual “Fira Agricola y Ramadera” or Agricultural and Animal Fair, which takes place on the first Sunday of May each year, although for most visitors this is still a little early in the season.
