The southern tip of Mallorca has the coastlines and fishing possibilities which mostly attract the locals, they choose Colonia de San Jordí and Sa Rápita as the place to buy a second home and spend the summer months near the sea. The choice of location is determined by the quality of beaches, the cleanliness of the water and abundance of fish and the favourable winds and currents - perfect conditions for sailing. The rural areas in the south of Mallorca are among the most sparsely populated regions of the island. The flat countryside, mostly farmland, stretches from Llucmajor and Campos to the sea. For those who seek peace and quiet as well as proximity to the beach and airport, there are country gems, with or without a lot of land, waiting to be discovered off the beaten track.
