Mallorca is called the pearl of the Balearic Islands by many people. Not only party lovers vacation here, on the contrary, the island has much more to offer than Halli Galli and various clubs. It is a family attraction, with numerous wide sandy beaches, secluded coves and culture.
Especially in the north there are scenic beauties, like the Tramuntana mountains or the bay of Alcudia. Also famous seaside resorts, like Cala Milor or Cala Radjada enjoy international reputation. In addition, one of the most famous fishing ports of all Spain is located here.
Experience the Spanish island of Mallorca
An island tour would be a wonderful solution to also get to know the hinterland and the lonely beaches. Ballermann is one thing, vacation on a dream island, with mild climate, beautiful small, dreamy places and of course also numerous cultural attractions the other.
On a Majorca vacation you can experience a lot. In the south in the capital Palma you will find numerous shopping and shopping opportunities, can look at culture, such as La Seu, probably the most famous cathedral on the island, but also stop in a tea room, delicious food or buy souvenirs. One of the most popular culinary stores on the island is George, with all its spices and sauces.
The Mallorcan diversity
If you take a day trip to Palma de Mallorca, the island's bustling capital, you'll also enjoy the tranquility and seclusion of the seaside resorts later on. No matter where you settle, it is idyllic and scenic.
The north of the island is mountainous. In the bay of Alcudia you will find long sandy beaches and warm water, at least in the spring and summer months, until the end of October. Then you can not only sunbathe, but also dive into the cool waters of the Mediterranean Sea.
The mountains extend over the entire north, up to the bay of Alcudia. Hiking is the order of the day here, but you can also drive to the famous Cap de Formentor, where a stately lighthouse rises, and inside you can get coffee and cake.
This is the end of the island and you have a wonderful view over the shiny and blue Mediterranean Sea, glistening in the sun. The way here is longer, than 20 kilometers over serpentines and narrow roads. From a viewpoint at the entrance, you can see the gigantic cliffs and mountains.
It is unique here. Pollenca and Port de Pollenca at the foot of the Tramuntana Mountains also have a lot of culture to offer. Here, 365 steps lead to a small chapel, which is known as a place of pilgrimage. Further to the east is Alcudia with its Roman city walls, on which you can walk along. So the north has a lot to offer and is worth a visit.
Travel further via Tramontana
To the northwest, we now continue across the seemingly endless expanses of the mountains. In the middle of it is the monastery of Lluc, which is often combined with sightseeing in Valldemossa and Soller. Valldemossa is a town of artists.
Here you will find many souvenir stores, handicrafts and the small street cafes where you can have a coffee. Most of them have chairs along the way and people watching is possible. The place became famous because of its monastery and the church of Sant Bartomeu.
From here it's also not far to Soller, a small port town where old streetcars still run, made of wood and driven standing up. This is the only way to get to the town without a car. The Red Lightning runs only 7 kilometers through the most beautiful landscape you can imagine.
From Soller it continues to the last tip of the west via Andratx to Sant Elm. The latter is a dreamy village directly at the western cape of the island. Offshore is the island of Sa Dragonera, which you can see from the mainland.
Here Mallorca ends and the beautiful sea glitters in the sun. In the small restaurants you can get delicious olives with garlic sauce. For a little stop, you can sit down in one of the many sidewalk cafes in the seaside resort. The beach here is also long, shallowly sloping and with light sand.
In the middle of Mallorca's island world
The center of the island with its dreamy villages is worth a visit on a tour of the island. Inca is the largest town in the region here and has some insider tips. Along a country road are numerous villages that live from vegetable growing and olive production. They are called Petra, Sineu, Santa Eugenia and Santa Maria del Cami.
Many more such small villages with beautiful sandstone churches, some restaurants and cafes, as well as idyllic and narrow winding streets can be found in this region. If you take a rental car, you can visit them all. Which one do you think is the most idyllic?
They all have the same charm, in Algaida, for example, the windmill of the village rises to the sky, also now and then a donkey karen is spotted in the countryside. Some of the people here still live as they did at the beginning of the last century and they are happy.
A Mallorca round trip can of course also go to the east of the island. This is the one you should take for a very special day trip. Because here are the world famous dragon caves in Portocristo. They are a huge cave system and only a part of it you will get to know during an exclusive guided tour. However, besides the Dragon Caves, there are smaller and more unknown caves in the northeast of the island.
They are called Caves of Arta and are located high above the sea. From their entrance and exit you have a wonderful view over the Mediterranean Sea. However, what Portocristo is still known for is its jewelry.
Majorica makes the most beautiful bracelets, necklaces, rings and earrings. You may find a piece or two for yourself in the factory outlet. In the port of Portocristo you can dream and watch the boats gliding along. One or the other comes by here with his yacht.
Safari adventure or dream beaches?
A little further north is the safari park Sa Coma. You can drive through it with your rental car or in a group with a tour bus. Depending on the time of year, there are animal feedings and shows you can watch.
For Africa lovers, this is definitely recommended. Rhinos, giraffes, elephants and antelopes run around your car. It is unique. The town of Arta is a little further from the coast. From here you can reach Capdepera with its Castell high above the town. The many steps lead up to a carillon.
In the southeast of Mallorca are probably the most beautiful beaches and bays of the island. Playa Es Tenc is such a dream beach, where in summer many people lie and swim. But in autumn it is usually quieter here and you can really enjoy the day at the sea. This natural beach is 6 kilometers long. In the south of the island you can also find the numerous windmills that were built here in the past. They serve for the irrigation of the fields.
They date back to the 18th century. However, some of them are still standing in the area only as sights, as a reminder of those times. A dream beach in the south of the island is Cala Pi. With most of the bays and beaches of Mallorca you think you are in the Caribbean or in paradise.
They are long, shallowly sloping and white sandy. Even more so, lined with palm trees and mountains in the background. A jetty leads a few meters into the water. On a Mallorca round trip there are at least 60 such beaches, which could not be more unique.
It's up to you to decide which ones you want to visit: A big beach or rather a small bay where you are almost alone and let the sun shine on your belly without much noise. Illetas in the southwest of the island is such a beach. In the small bays you have to walk some time, about 30 minutes from the parking lot, but for that there is not a soul here and you feel like Adam and Eve in paradise.
