The charming village of Es Mijorn Gran is also within easy access by car.
Situated next door to Villa Esmeralda Sol, Villa Julio is very close to the centre of Santo Tomas and the fantastic sandy beach which lies just across the road. The long winding promenade which runs parallel to the beach, offers a good choice of shops, bars, cafes and restaurants with fantastic views over the water. By day, enjoy a relaxing stroll along the beach stopping at any one of the waterside cafes to enjoy a drink or an ice cream. Or by night, enjoy a main meal as you watch the sun set over the water.
The beach is a stunning white expanse of sand, dotted with outcrops of natural limestone rocks creating natural rock pools, great for exploring. There are kayaks available for hire if you feel like a trip out on the water. The far end of the beach is backed with a natural back drop of fields and a valley leading up into the hills.
Also very close by are a number of hotels and apartment complexes with souvenir shops, boutiques and supermarkets where you can buy all the essentials or gifts to take home.
For anyone wanting something more active, local sporting activities including tennis and mini golf are all within an easy walk of the villa.
