The resort is clean and well laid-out, with three beaches, Playa Palmira, Playa Tora, and Playa La Romana, each of which has plenty of facilities for sunbathing and watersports. The Blue Flag status beaches are joined by a pedestrian promenade which runs along the seafront.
Paguera is noted for it's cleanliness and the resort is maintained very well and is a very pleasant place to wander around. The beaches are all clean and sandy, with gently shelving sands sloping into clear warm waters, and plenty of space for families to enjoy their own spot of beach.
There are plenty of shops, bars, restaurants and cafes along the main street that runs the full length of the resort.
A fairly lively resort, it has plenty of nightlife and is not especially recommended if you are seeking peace and quiet, as there are several discos that stay open until the early hours.
As well as being popular with German tourists, the resort also attracts many British holiday makers, and there are a number of British bars and cafes in the resort, catering to British tastes, for example serving 'full English' breakfasts and pub grub. There are also a great number of other international dining options, and of course some traditional Spanish cuisine inclusing delicious fresh fish and seafood.
Around Paguera there are a number of notable hiking routes through the surrounding countryside, so it is a good base for anyone who enjoys exploring a little.
Paguera is conveniently located for visits to Andratx market, and the stylish coastal resort of Port d'Andratx. You can also take boat trips around the coast or to the island of Dragonera, which is a nature reserve with Roman ruins and a small museum.
One thing to note if you are considering a holiday in Paguera: the resort is quite hilly, and many of the hotels and apartments are uphill so may be challenging for anyone with a pushchair or wheelchair.
