Beach at the holiday resort called Magaluf

Calvià is a municipality on the island of Majorca, which adjoins the suburbs of Palma, the capital of the Spanish autonomous community of the Balearic Islands.

The area contains many of Majorca's major tourism hotspots, with the localities of Magaluf (3,865), Santa Ponsa (8,188), El Toro (2,002), Paguera (3,400), Illetas (3,286), Portals Nous (2,395) and Palma Nova (5,975). There are 14 beaches and 4 sport ports. The proximity of Palma with major road connections means that it can be take as little as 15 minutes to reach the city centre. With massive tourism, estimated at 1.6 million visits per year, Calvià is one of the wealthiest municipalities in Europe. There is also a huge inflow of money into property from Britain, Germany, and increasingly, Russia.

In the early 1960s, Calvià began building a complete infrastructure for massive tourism, such as rapid construction of hotels. Later more touristic features were added which included four professional golf courses (Club de Golf Poniente, Golf Sta Ponça I, Golf Sta Ponça II, Golf Sta Ponça III and Golf Bendinat), water parks, a modern promenade called Paseig Calvià and the Gran Casino Mallorca located in Sol de Mallorca, about 10 minutes from Magaluf. The 2004 World Chess Olympiad was held in Calvià.
