Deia

 

Visit the beautiful historic village of Deia in Mallorca in the heart of the Tramuntana Mountains



Deia how to get there


Deia, a small Municipalitity in the Tramuntana Mountains, is a delight to visit. The views along the coastal road are absolutely stunning together with some magnificent scenery near to Deia village itself. Many tourists drive the 20 minute journey to the region after visiting Soller or Valldemossa along the MA10.
You can come to this area by the local TIB bus service however most people prefer to hire a car, which allows freedom to visit all areas of interest in the same day.

Deia - Combining the Visit


The well known Belmond La Residencia Luxury Hotel and Spa entrance is seen as you drive through the Village. In general Deia is very small and quiet with only a couple of village shops selling basic items such as bread and provisions and a few cafes and restaurants. It is a great day trip and can be combined with visiting the other places of interest in the area, see more below.
