Santo Tomas Holidays

The resort of Santo Tomas is situated to the south of the island, is a fairly quiet resort popular with families with small children. The resort offers a good selection of holiday accommodation with many hotels or apartment complexes to choose from. Within the town there is also a good selection of bars and restaurants catering for all tastes and budgets.
The beach is an ideal place for the parents to relax whilst the children play in the soft sand. The sea here is usually fairly calm and safe for swimming although there can be strong currents, visitors should take note of warning flags. For those feeling slightly energetic various water sports are available on the beach such as windsurfing, sailing and diving.
The night life tends to be mainly hotel based, with many of the hotels offering evening entertainment with live shows or music.
Santo Tomas is situated approx 25 km from the airport.

Tranquillity reigns in Santo Tomás...
You get three beaches for the price of one at Santo Tomás. The first pair, Sant Tomás and Sant Adeodat (to use their Catalan names), are equipped with standard holiday offerings, while the third, Binigaus, is well worth walking along the rocky path to. It has more sand than the first two put together, and is also the starting point for a stroll inland to the impressive cave, Cova des Coloms.
Tranquillity reigns in Santo Tomás. After hours, there is little to do beyond the entertainment in hotels; most of the resorts restaurants are attached to tourist accommodation. That's not to say a stroll along the waterfront path doesn't make for a great way to pass an evening - because it is. There is an abundance of playgrounds, picnic benches and activities such as mini golf and tennis, and the more energetic can head east over the low coastline and spend a day on Son Bou beach, the far end is practically empty, even in August.
One place where it's never empty - or at least not at lunchtime - is the beach bar Es Bruc. It's been in business as long as anyone can remember and the place is invaded by locals at the weekend. As there are no reservations, you either have to get there very early or just wait for a table. Fortunately as British eating hours rarely match those of Spaniards, tourists usually get a seat first!
