All events will take place in the beautiful waters around the town of Colònia Sant Jordi. The town is famous for the amazing beaches that lie either side of the town and the island of Cabrera, Spain’s first protected nature marine park, that lies a few kilometers away. The town is also famous for its salt, collected from the world’s second oldest salt flats.
Colònia Sant Jordi
Colonia Sant Jordi has everything you need to enjoy festival week with us. When you enter any of the swims in the festival, you will be given a wristband where you can save money in the participating hotels, cafes, bars, restaurants and shops. Families and friends of participants can also buy festival wristbands for 3 euros each.
The port is the main hub of the town, and is located on the east side of the town. Here you can relax in a cafe and gaze out across the boats and beaches of Es Dolç and Es Carbo. There are restaurants, gift shops, banks, tourist information and your departure point for trips to the island of Cabrera.
Heading from the port to the western side of the town, you will pass the Olympic swimming pool at the BEST Centre and the ‘Salines’, which have been producing salt since Roman times, on your way to the golden sands of Es Estanys and Es Trenc.
There is a medical centre in the town, or for larger emergencies, the nearest hospitals are in Campos, 10 minutes away, Manacor, 30 minutes away, or Palma, 30 minutes away.
Restaurants, bars, cafes and shops
Colònia Sant Jordi and neighbouring Ses Salines has a wealth of excellent resturants as well as many boutique style shops and cafes. You can read more about the restaurants in the two towns on the services pages as well as the businesses that will be collaborating with the Festival and offering discounts to event goers.
