Top 10 things to do in Mallorca

Famous for its beaches, villas, and pearls, Mallorca is a little taste of paradise off Spain's Mediterranean coast. For decades it's been a popular hotspot for summer and winter holidays alike due to its many diverse attractions. Here are ten of the best.

La Seu (Palma Cathedral)

Designed by Antoni Gaudí and Miquel Barceló, Palma's magnificent cathedral is unlike any in the world. Mass times vary, but you can be sure to catch one at 9:00AM daily.

Serra de Tramuntana

The winding road through this breathtaking valley is well worth renting a car for. Be sure to stop off at the red-brick village of Deià and Sa Calobra's beautiful cove - but don't forget your map!

Cap de Formentor

This is arguably Mallorca's most spectacular landscape, to be found at the eastern end of the Formentor peninsula. It's known locally as the "meeting point of the winds."

Castell de Bellver

Conceived as a royal residence, this unique 14th-century castle in fact spent more time in use as a prison. As well as incredible hillside views, it's also home to a museum.

Fornalutx and Biniaraix

The walk between these two quaint towns covers some of the island's most exuberant scenery, with olive, oak, and pine trees, a watermill, and Fornalutx's citrus-littered cemetery.

Jardines d'Alfàbia

Nestled in the rugged mountains of Serra d’Alfàbia, is this ambrosial garden that was once the courtyard of an Arab viceroy. Today, however, it's occupied by rambling farm animals.

Alcudia

In historical terms, Alcudia is Mallorca's second city. Its old town is encircled by a medieval wall, and its beaches and coves are perfect for swimming and snorkeling.

Puerto de Soller

Soller's port is the scenic highlight of this historic town, with twin lighthouses forming a gateway to its sandy bay. Don't miss touring the seafront on its vintage trams!

Illa de Cabrera

If you just can't get enough peace and quiet, then head to this uninhabited islet and National Park off Mallorca's south coast to sunbathe, hike, or explore its old castle.

Beaches

Visiting Mallorca for the sea and sand? The resort beach of Playa de Muro is one of the best, but if you fancy something a little more isolated, then head to the wilder Es Trenc.

Mallorca: Our Tips

When to visit?

The best time to visit Mallorca is between June and August, when the weather averages about 86°F and the coastal breeze stops temperatures from getting intolerable. This is also when the island hosts its music and film festivals. For a nice wintry trip with mild weather October won't disappointed - it's better-suited to exploring Mallorca's local cultures and historic buildings.

How to get there?

The simplest way to reach Mallorca is by flying to Palma de Mallorca Airport in the island's capital city. There are also several ferry services available from Barcelona, Valencia, and Ibiza.

What People Are Saying About Mallorca

This was a great way to see the major sights and get a workout.

The ride to the castle was a little tricky but worth it - we had time to go in the castle and enjoy the view. The tapas and drinks were refreshing after the ride.

Lovely scenic rides on various modes of transportation.

Wonderful wooden train ride through Soller, fun guide, breathtaking views from boat to beach. Lovely walk -wish we'd had time to take the walk through the valley. Next visit.
Scenic Full-Day Tour of Mallorca Reviewed by Alison, 06/25/2016

Very well organised and the tour guide was excellent, very informative

Excellent tour guide, he made the trip fun, full of enthusiasm. His multi language skills were very impressive. The trip was well organised and I was picked up right outside the hotel, even though I was the only person on the tour in this particular hotel. All round excellent trip. Perhaps only thing I might change is would prefer more time at Cap Formentor viewing point and less time at the market stop.

Breathtaking show, the best I've ever seen

This show was amazing stunning fantastic breathtaking, the best I have ever seen, the staff were helpful brilliant, very freindly, the food was brilliant, tasty cooked professionally served well the venue is stunning, it was a most fantastic evening, that myself and my family would definatly pay to see again, even though we had an extra expense of a taxi due to confusion with pick up point please tell people that this point is not, At the Bahamas Hotel but opposite,, thankyou Sharon
