Hidden Gems #5: Restaurant Sa ForadadaJune 29, 2016

Restaurant Sa Foradada is a true island beauty and one experience that is not to be missed. Make a day of it. Sa Foradada is perched above a private cove, meaning you have absolutely stunning views from the large terrace.


A trip to Sa Foradada is the perfect Mallorca excursion

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 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.

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