Best Places To Visit In Mallorca

As the largest of the Balearic Islands, you won't be short of things to see and do in Mallorca. Home to picture-perfect scenery, excellent weather and delicious Spanish cuisine, Mallorca comes highly recommended. Whether it's your first time on the island or the fifth, there's much to be enjoyed. In our latest post, we're sharing some of the best places to visit in Mallorca. Read on if you want to discover the very best of the island. 

Explore the cultured capital city, Palma de Mallorca 

The island's capital city truly offers the best of both worlds. By day, the cultured town has plenty of attractions to keep you busy, or you can relax by the sea – the choice is all yours. As night falls, the city truly comes alive as some of the island's hottest restaurants, bars and clubs offer a warm welcome. 

If immersing yourself in the local culture is on the agenda, be sure to visit the glorious Catedral de Mallorca, Castillo de Bellver and former residence of Fundación Pilar I Joan Miró. Suppose gothic chapels and museums aren't your thing, head to Cala Major, Playa de Palma or Playa del Arenal for a day of R&R by the sea. 

Visit Alcúdia's Old Town 

Alcúdia's Old Town is undoubtedly one of the most scenic towns on the island. The charming medieval town is surrounded by lush greenery and pine forests, made even better by the sunshine. 

The beautifully preserved walled town is best known for its rich history, traditional bars and restaurants, and lively festivals throughout the year. For the history buffs, Santa Ana, Sant Jaume and Sant Crist await, while nature lovers will most definitely want to visit La Albufera natural park; home to more than 200 species of birds. 

When you're done exploring, you won't be short of options when it comes to eating and drinking – Alcúdia certainly ticks a lot of boxes. 

Discover Serra de Tramuntana 

Regardless of whether you consider yourself a nature lover, the dramatic mountain range that is Serra de Tramuntana is undoubtedly worth a visit. The UNESCO World Heritage Site forms the northwest of Mallorca's backbone, running for around 90km. Whether it's an early morning hike or an afternoon picnic in the sun, you'll be glad you visited the Serra de Tramuntana. 

Head to Puerto Portals 

Puerto Portals is an upscale seaside resort located along the Southwest Coast of the island. The chic marina is peppered with trendy shops, cafes and restaurants while the exclusive yacht club draws in the crowds. Whether you're browsing the shops or enjoying a bite to eat at the Michelin-starred Tristan Restaurant or Mood Beach Club, you could easily spend your days here. You'll soon see why Puerto Portals is a favourite with the Spanish royal family. 

Hop on board the Sóller train

Sóller is a lovely little town tucked away in the Serra de Tramuntana mountains, surrounded by olive groves and citrus orchards which lead toward crystal blue waters. The famous Sóller train takes passengers on a ride through the picture-postcard landscape that is sure to leave you impressed. While it's a small town, Sóller is home to plenty of eateries and bars as a warm welcome awaits. 

Bask in the sun on Llucmajor's beaches 

Located around 25km south of Palma de Mallorca are the beautiful beaches of Llucmajor. The impressive coastline is home to rugged coves, white-sand beaches and cliffs just waiting to be explored. 

Playa del Arenal is a long stretch of beach which extends all the way to Palma de Mallorca. Here, you'll find calm waters, making it an excellent location for swimming or water sports. Plus, with a yacht club and plenty of restaurants and bars, you'll find everything you need here.

Cala Pi Beach makes for a superb choice if scuba diving is on the agenda while the small cove next to the Cala Blava estate is a tranquil beach boasting unspoiled views of Palma Bay. There's so much going on; we nearly forgot to mention the golf course and excellent sailing facilities. 

Spend the day at sea

Explore the Calvia coastline 

The Calvia coastline extends 50 kilometres, winding around cliffs, bays and rugged foothills. The Calvia coastline is home to many specular beaches and remote isles which draw in sun-worshippers and nature lovers. 

For us, Cala Vinyes is a must-visit. The prettiest beach is home to a small sandy shore and calm waters, making it the perfect choice for a day of lounging in the sun and dipping in the sea. 

If you'd prefer to spend your days at a yacht club, Cala de Santa Ponsa is home to an impressive club with an equally remarkable beach club. 

Enjoy a fun-filled day at Katmandu Park
