Es Llombards is a small village of around 500 people. The hamlet probably grew up in the 17th century around the communal pools which King Jaume II of Mallorca had built in order to ensure there was a water supply to the area. In times gone by the economy was based around agriculture, with vine cultivation being important. Now foreigners own houses in the village and the surrounding area, either as permanent dwellings or second homes.

Cala Llombards

Cala Llombarts is a small tourist resort which was developed from 1969 onwards. It is situated around the cove of Cala Llombarts and mainly comprises houses.

The Cala Llombards beach, is 45 m long and 130 m wide, has fine white sand and is kept in good condition. Around Cala Llombards a quiet residential area has been built, which is well integrated into the landscape and which doesn´t make the beach too crowded, even during high season. By the shore there are some ´escars´, which are traditional buildings used by Mallorcan fishermen to keep their boats and their fishing tackle. Away from this beach, out to sea on the left, there is a little isle in the shape of an arc, which is known as Es Pontàs. By the beach there is a parking area.
Services: a restaurant and an open-air bar, sun loungers and parasols for hire.
