One of the best days I have spent in Mallorca was one where with a group of friends we were picked up from Cala Deia on a small sailing boat and taken round the cove to eat in this restaurant, before then being shown some spectacular snorkelling caves on the way back to Port de Soller.

It’s a restaurant passed down through generations famous for its paella – as it has been for at least the last 40 years. The challenge to get to it is all part of the charm and helps to keep the crowds away during the Summer.

Famed for the traditional paella

Sa Foradada is a typically rustic Mallorquin restaurant with the kitchen and huge cast iron paella pans as the focal point. There are numerous outdoor eating options all of which serve as the most amazing look out point to take in the surrounding sparkling “Med” and Mallorca’s rocky West Coast.

Settle in – there’s no rush here – get yourself a huge paella to share which goes down very well with a few bottles of chilled rose and forget the world as you marvel at the beauty all around you.

Where to find Sa Foradada

The official address is Crta. Valldemossa, Deia KM6.

You can walk from the look-out point at Sa Foradada but beware it is quite a hike.

It is best accessed by boat. You can be picked up from nearby Cala Deia or indeed come from Port Soller or anywhere else you fancy. Speak to Mezzo Magic for boat hire options.
