Estellencs, between the sea and the mountainsBconnectedmallorca
A tranquil and secluded part of the island called Estellencs is short a drive away from the artistic town of Deià. Of only 350 inhabitants, tucked away in the Tramuntana you’ll find traditional Mallorcan stone homes and large estates that have been passed down through family generations. With picturesque views over the west coast and out to sea, this magical location attracts those who embrace nature at its fullest, enjoy superb sunsets, and are happy with a little relaxing isolation. The houses here are mostly spread out individually

Estellencs has quick access to the Port of Canonge, located on the rocky West coastline between Banyalbufar and Esporles. Developed back in 1944, a beautiful family cove where you can perch yourself on the rocks and enjoy the afternoon sunshine, and paddle in the shallow crystal-clear waters. Make sure to bring your mask and snorkel as the underwater wildlife here is out of this world.

There are many routes you can take to get to this fishing Port if you would like to hike beforehand, beautiful walkways mark the coast which stretches out as far as you can imagine, reaching Soller if you hike far enough. At Port Canonge you’ll find the restaurant Can Madó, a typical Mallorcan cuisine if you’re fancying a tapas-like meal with fresh food from the island. If you’re not a picnic is also a perfect idea to sit down on the rocks, whilst your feet dangle in the water.

The area of Estellencs is a magical place, when you’re here you can imagine how it’s almost the same as it was back in 1944 when it was first developed. Natural and idyllic.
