Top 10 things to do and see in Mallorca
There's no doubt that this dream island offers endless coves and beaches, but Mallorca is much more than that. It has great places to explore and get to know the traditions, cultures and picturesque villages that offer an amazing variety of activities.
Dare to discover the island!
1. The Cathedral of Palma de Mallorca
It is absolutely essential to visit the famous cathedral. This architectural jewel is one of the best-known Gothic buildings in Europe and is a must for anyone visiting Mallorca.
2. Pa amb oli
The Mediterranean island is offers more than Ensaimada and sobrasada. However, the gastronomic choice is immense and we recommend tasting the typical dishes of Mallorca and discovering the island in every way. The Pa amb oli is a dish for everyone as it consists of a slice of bread with tomato, oil, salt and the sausage or cheese of your choice.
Our mouth is dribbling just thinking about it!
3. Passengers on board!
If you are a lover of old railways and/or nature, you will love this plan. In the heart of Palma you can take the train to Sóller, which travels 23 kilometres through the Tramuntana mountains. It is a completely unique experience that gives you a beautiful view of the landscape which will make you travel through time
4. A tasty drink
The night is coming and you want to put the icing on the cake to a wonderful day? The island offers a variety of ways to enjoy a cocktail in good company and a comfortable atmosphere. Enjoy the most classic blends and the most innovative masterpieces in a unique space.
A gift for the eyes and a delight for the palate!
5. Sa Calobra
The drive to Sa Calobra is very exciting, as is visiting the beach, and offers one of the most spectacular views you will ever see. It is a group of two beaches with crystal clear waters, separated by a stream, located on the northwest coast of the island. An absolute highlight!
6. Mallorcan Wines
The wine reputation of the Balearic Islands improves with every year and is among the bests in Spain. Some of the Majorcan villages, such as Binissalem or Santa María, are famous for their exquisite production and vineyards. The island has over 70 wineries, and we recommend having a wine tasting or attend the wine fair in the village.
7. Ses Fonts Ufanes
Ses Fonts Ufanes is a source of natural water and is the most peculiar hydrological wonder of the whole island: as rainwater accumulates in the Puig Tomir, the water flows unexpectedly and irregularly with unusual force. It is undoubtedly a magical and perfect place for nature lovers.
8. Town festivities
The Majorcan island has a full schedule of festivities and ancestral as well as contemporary events. It is perfect for those who want to get to know the traditions of the villages, the people who live there and the typical food. We recommend that you take a look at the coming festivities so that you can explore every corner of the island.
9. The maritime ports
Majorca has numerous harbours across the island, where you can enjoy wonderful sceneries and a spectacular sunset. Stroll along the harbour contemplating the fishermen's houses, having a coffee or dinner in one of the restaurants in front of the sea. Beautiful views!
10. Wander the streets of Palma
The capital of Majorca offers endless possibilities. Picturesque streets, famous buildings, cafés and peculiar restaurants. It is difficult to choose the most charming places in Palma, so we recommend to take a city map and start walking the streets aimlessly.
You can discover every corner and spot of Palma at any time of the year.
