From the Mondragó Natural Park to the pristine beach of Es Trenc, the rural and bohemian region of Migjorn is the perfect place to relax whilst taking in the stunning views of Mallorca.
Located in the south of the island, the municipality of Migjorn combines scenic inland towns with a beautiful coastline, popular with locals and visitors alike. As one of Mallorca’s driest areas, Migjorn ecosystem features typical Mediterranean vegetation, white sandy beaches, cliffs, sand dunes and small coves.
Migjorn’s capital, the town of Llucmajor, is the largest municipality in Mallorca and, with a coastline stretching over 47 km, the region is an ideal spot for sailing, diving or simply relaxing on its white sandy beaches. Its interior landscape features fields of almond and fig trees, and the area offers many cultural and historical experiences, exceptional architecture and opportunities to visit wineries.

The five districts that make up Migjorn include Campos, Felanitx, Llucmajor, Ses Salinas and Santanyí; famous for their fertile grounds and many farms, producing milk to make the island’s most renowned cheeses. The region is also the site of a salt mine that has maintained traditional extraction techniques.
