If you are looking for a holiday with variety at its heart, then Mallorca won’t let you down. Beautiful beaches abound all the way along our featured resorts, from the sweeping bays of Alcudia and Puerto Pollensa (Port De Pollença) to the treasure trove of small beaches and bays of Cala D’Or, there’s no shortage of sand and clear blue waters.
With plenty of shops, restaurants and bars nestling around each resort, delicious local fare and retails therapy are never far away.
Nature lovers and culture vultures are well catered for too. Moving inland, the Parc Naturel de S’Albufera teams with native wildlife and is well worth a few hours of anyone’s time. Roman remains and Moorish influence are to be found everywhere. One of the most outstanding examples is the popular Teatre Roma just outside Alcudia.
Formentor peninsular – the journey here is almost as spectacular as the destination. Tunnel through En Fumet mountain where you can look on Mallorca’s most inaccessible beach until you reach the very tip of the island. Scale the lighthouse to café bar and enjoy uninterrupted views to Menorca.
Soller & Port de Soller – this is a wonderful little village situated in one of Mallorca’s most beautiful horseshoe harbours. Surrounded by the Tramuntana mountains, this town has the best of both worlds – magnificent mountain scenery and a sea view to boot. Take the tramway connecting the town to Soller opening in 1913.
Palma – Drive or take the train from Sa Pobla and buy a day ticket for the tourist bus. This is your passport to the sights, shops and attractions that are scattered throughout Palma. Visit the amazing “La Seu” Catherdral with its stunning modern art chapel… experience the Arab Baths, the only remaining Moorish building in the city… or what about Bellver Castle, the only one of its kind in Spain. And you can always shop till you drop in the many designer boutiques or sit with a cold drink as you people watch in the cosmopolitan harbour front.
Dragonera Island – tucked away off the far south eastern corner of Mallorca is the must-see nature reserve of Dragonera Island. Once the lair of Barborasa the pirate, today this idyllic setting makes a great day out. Drive down to San Telmo taking in some wine tasting along the way at Santa Catarina bodega. Have lunch at one of the many waterfront restaurants in San Telmo before taking a boat trip out to the island.- Read less
