Son Server is a quiet town in the northeast of Mallorca in an area known as the Llevant. The village is known to have been in existence since the 13th century and is thought to have been named after the deer that once roamed the surrounding area.
Son Servera now has a by-pass road so the village is more peaceful without traffic passing through to the coast resulting in fewer visitors visiting the small town. However, Friday morning has a bustling market.
The local golf course Son Servera Golf is Mallorca’s second oldest course and opened in the 1960s as a nine-hole course. However, in 2012 it was expanded to an 18 hole course. Other golf courses at Canyamel and Capdepera are within close proximity.
The municipality of Son Servera includes the popular resort of Cala Millor, a long sandy beach located between a smaller resort Cala Bona and the protected natural area of Sa Punta de n’Amer. Cala Millor’s Sa Màniga Auditorium is a venue for ballet, theatre and music.
The pretty town of Artà is an easy drive from Son Server. The town is known for its basketwork and its popular Tuesday morning market.
