Not suitable for those with walking difficulties, as slopes and steps are unavoidable. Children will be hopelessly bored.
Accommodation consists of two upmarket hotels and one or two pensions and a limited selection of privately owned villa's.
A small cove ½ mile downhill provides the main beach in the area. However, tiny but nevertheless appealing beaches can be found at Lluc Alcari and Son Marroig (2 and 3 mls respectively).
Shopping is limited to a couple of boutiques, some galleries for upmarket souvenirs and artists' studios. One or two shops for basics.

There are a limited number of restaurants and bars, from tapas and pizza to a la carte in Deya.
