Mallorca Vacations

In Mallorca, white sand beaches, emerald-green water, high-end hotels and docks packed with fleets of boats from deep-sea fishing crafts to mega-yachts greet travelers looking for the finer things in life. The largest of Spain's four popular Balearic islands, Mallorca doesn't ask much from its visitors, and its guests comply readily with hours of ... Read more
tanning on the beach, strolling through the cozy streets of Palma de Mallorca (the capital of the Balearics) and late nights dancing or long, lazy seafood dinners on vine-covered terraces. Blessed with such vacation perfection, it's no wonder more than three-quarters of Mallorca's GDP now comes from visitors. Besides, Mallorca's tourism infrastructure runs so smoothly, you'll hardly mind the other 10 million annual guests sharing the small island with you. Although there are no more 'undiscovered' attractions, Mallorca's physical beauty is apparent in the lush Cala Mondrago National Park and Es Trenc beach. History dots the island, most impressively buttressed by the La Seu Gothic cathedral, refurbished by Gaudi in the early 20th century.

Thats the place to go. Spend a few days on the island, explore the city of Palma and shopping :-) - then travel through the mountains and visit some awesome beaches. If you are travelling in summer, be prepared for rumble. But if you travel before june it is just the best place ever. You will find hotels and rental cars that suite all budgets.

The largest of Spain’s Balearic islands, Mallorca is sometimes overshadowed by the party atmosphere of Ibiza. But Mallorca still retains a low-key quality that makes it perfect for a relaxed getaway. Of course, the island has its built up areas – the south is where the big resorts are, and if you’re searching for traditional Mallorca you’ll be searching in vain. But head for the north west coast and you'll find the village of Deia. one of the island’s most beautiful spots, at the top of a hill in the Sierra Tramuntana mountain range. Worth going to Mallorca for alone.

Didn't spend too much time here (starting point for a cruise), but from the short time we did have to explore, it was very scenic with lots of pleasant surprises hidden around corner we went around.

Mallorca has many faces and for a relatively small island, it takes a long time to get to know them.

South-west: Home to much of the island's tourism and most of its shopping / nightlife. A largely urban environment, the south-west is where you'll find Balearic capital, Palma, but there are also lots of beaches.

North-west: This is a mountainous region and where you'll find some of Mallorca's most beautiful scenery. Highlights include the villages along the coast, hiking/cycling/climbing in the mountains and beautiful drives (especially Sa Calobra).

North-east: Though tourist resorts dot the coastline, the north-east is quieter than the south-west. The old towns of Alcudia, Pollença and Artà are charming and full of history, while nearby Cap de Formentor is a spectacular rocky outcrop into the sea.

South-east: This is a large and diverse area. Inland, where it can become very hot in summer, you'll find many siesta-loving towns. Manacor and Felanitx are two of the bigger places. There are also some busy coastal spots popular with tourists, including Porto Cristo and Cala D'Or.

Middle: An area that doesn't really fit into the above. Inca is the main place here and it's a typical working Mallorcan town, not without its charms. The region is known for its wine-making and nearby Binissalem is worth a look. Pretty Sineu lies at the geographic centre of the island.

I've been to Mallorca three times on assignment. It's a fantastic island
with really good restaurants from the mom and pop places I love in the
mountains to the more upscale restaurants. All the food is simply amazing. There are beautiful beaches and great hotels as well. It's definitely worth going to.

I went on a 4-day, 3-night trip to Mallorca in mid-September without knowing much about it or researching, and I had the most amazing time. I met the friendliest people, the weather was still fantastic and hot, and the beaches were among the most incredible I've seen (better than what I saw in Australia). The beach highlights were Cala Deia (beautiful bright blue water), Es Trenc (looong beach with really clean sand & water), Sa Calobra/Torrent de Pareis (rocky beach down a long zig-zagging road; also has an interesting rocky looking area behind the beach), and Cala Pi (closer to S'Arenal; very pretty little cove). We also checked out the town of Fornalutx, which was gorgeous - beautiful homes built up on the mountains. As far as Palma goes, it's not an incredibly special city - you can go check out the cathedrals & a bunch of stores that they have elsewhere in Spain... I'd recommend spending most of your time on the beaches & exploring the smaller cities, though!

We stayed for 2 weeks,the children were young and the beach was ideal.Self catering we found was ideal with small children as they didn't always want to have something to eat at set times.We had a day in Palma,went on a night out to see the flamenco dancers and visited Magaluf as we were just next door to it ,we played crazy golf and built sandcastles on the beach.We went in March and this was ideal as lovely and warm during the day and a little cooler
at night.We ate out a few times and the food was lovely also buying groceries was easy as there was a supermarket not far from where we were staying.
