Calvia is a beautiful area of Mallorca with a lot of history and elegance. It’s a split between mountainous area away from the coastline and fantastic beaches.
Calvia is both a county of Mallorca and also the administrative centre for the region. It is also home to the famous Magaluf which is currently being rebranded to be called Calvia Village.
Magaluf is a world away from the beauty of Calvia and thousands of tourists from all over the world visit there every year. The Punta Ballena is home to madness every night with local companies running lots of Magaluf parties for the eager young holidaymakers.
That being said we can wholeheartedly recommend the Pirate show in Magaluf as a place to go and see some amazing acrobatics while having a meal.
Luckily, you don’t have to take part in that side of Calvia and by travelling just a couple of kilometres inland you can appreciate the beauty and history of the area.
In Calvia town itself (there is Calvia county and Calvia Town) the church is something to really see. A 13th century original church named after Saint Joan Baptista with a wonderful fountain explains the background of Calvia.
It is so peaceful here you would be forgiven for thinking your in a different part of the world to the all day all night parties not too far away. Relaxing with a caffe con leche watching chickens and people go about their business is very soothing for the soul.
Here’s a video showing some of the prettier sides of Calvia:
