The northeast of the island is the furthest away from the main city Palma. Here you can find the natural reserve of “Llevant Parque Natural”, with its rich fauna, flora and the impressive landscapes of the second mountain range on Mallorca: the “Sierra de Llevant”. This mountain range is a lot smaller than the Tramuntana, with the highest peak at 500 m.
Along the eastern coast is Cala Millor with many long sandy beaches with clear blue water and small bays with a very limited supply of properties and hotels. Cala Bona, Costa dels Pins, S’Illot and Son Servera are some of the beautiful villages in this area. The picturesque charming inland villages of Artá and Capdepera have impressive medieval castles and
tiny winding alleys that transport the visitors into the very past of Mallorca. The second largest town on the island, Manacor, is known for its glass factories, furniture makers and cultured pearl industry, and is also the birthplace of the world famous tennis star Rafael Nadal, who is now building his own international tennis school in Manacor.
