Deià is a beautiful town in the Majorcan coast known as Costa Norte, situated between Sierra de Tramuntana and the sea. The city centre, with its ancient Majorcan houses, sits on the side of a small hill that overlooks the Mediterranean. It has remained intact through the passage of time, being traditionally the home to many painters and artists. In the vicinity of this town, the coast forms secluded coves that invite rest and are the ideal setting to take a relaxing walk. These are only a few of the possibilities that Deià has to offer, a place where one can try the delicacies that are typical of Balearic cuisine.
The municipality has many hidden coves along its coast, where the visitor can enjoy a bath on crystal waters. The best known is the cove Cala de Deià, which has become a meeting point for the town's folk, as well as an anchorage for vessels during the summer.
Gastronomy and the outskirts
Deià is surrounded by the unique landscapes of Sierra de Tramuntana, and is located only a few kilometres away from other towns like Valldemossa and Sóller. The scenic road connecting Deià and Valldemosa offers excellent views, between olive orchards and the sea. It is recommended that the visitor stop at En Son Marroig to gaze over the edge of the cliff. This constitutes one of the most beautiful views of the Majorcan coastline.
