I read lots of high reviews about the beauty of Deia but I must say I was quite disappointed. I was expecting for a lively artist & "hippie" village but what I found was very empty and dead stony village. Maybe we were there too early in the morning? The bus ride from Port de Soller to Deia was pretty... More

This is a lovely rocky beach with 2 small beach restaurants, it takes about 25 minutes to walk down from the centre of Deia or you can drive down and park a few minutes walk away.

We decided to visit Deia on our last day in Mallorca, and after seeing the entrance to the beach we decided to park the car up the road and make our way down by foot. BIG MISTAKE unless you are wearing proper shoes. You can actually drive down and just walk the 5minutes to the beach instead. I knew it... More

I don't know where the other reviewers went!? This is one of my favourite spots on earth (will not go into where I have been in detail but have been to Malaysia / India / Thailand x2 / Mexico / SA / California etc). Not using the above to boast but to qualify the review. If you go in peak... More

Being going to Deia for some years and when we were younger, we loved the beach. Ok a struggle to get in over the big stones, but once out it was heaven. But now it is too popular, however the magic was there this week, Saturday packed and water laden with seaweed and churned up sand. Most uninviting, yet two... More

Oxford Street is less crowded on a Saturday afternoon, the parking is easier in central London and the smells sweeter too! I wish we had just stayed by the pool at the hotel...

I read the reviews and still ventured to Cala de Deia. Should have trusted TripAdvisor! This beach is packed with people who think the beach is the place to be seen. The reality is that it is dull, rocky and there are piles of stinking seaweed. The drive down is pretty hairy - but it would be worth it if... More

The village of Daia is lovely with restaurants I'd love to try. The beach however is the worst beach I've been to that is a tourist beach. We got there at 11am and it was about full of people but I was utterly baffled as to why. People were bravely trying to have fun with the water but it's really... More

The town was very picturesque. The drive to the beach was full of hairpin turns, parking was a nightmare, and the beach was very crowded.

Deía is a gem, with its tranquil cemetery, where Robert Grafves is buried, at the top of a steep climb to the top of the village. The village seems from another time and is quiet, slowly baking in the heat of the day.
