For me this summer season has started earlier, I spent a wonderful time in Spain. That’s why I’m super excited to finally share my early-summer Mallorca Travel Guide with all the best things to do in Mallorca in case you’re already planning your next vacation.
MALLORCA TRAVEL GUIDE
Mallorca is the ideal place for a holiday break, that’s for sure – compact enough to travel by car or even by foot yet with multiple attractions worth exploring. Everyone can find something they love – a boat trip to nearby islands with snorkelling, an amazing adventure to Dragon Caves, a day in the heart of Mallorca – Palma, with its amazing architecture – the Bellver Castle, La Seu Cathedral, the old town and Plaza Major.
Or you can rent a car (it’s super cheap here) and discover your own Mallorca with all the tiny villages and endless old windmills spread all over the island, so one can imagine oneself living in the Imperial Spain of Don Quixote. The prices may vary a lot from place to place, so I recommend you to do your own research before buying day-trips in your hotel.
WHERE TO STAY IN MALLORCA
There are a lot of nice places to stay while exploring the island. This time we decided to choose Santa Ponça, a little town in the south-west of Mallorca, well-known for its golf clubs and wild beaches. So the hotel choice was quite obvious for us – Bahia Del Sol.
Ideally located within walking distance of the beautiful beach and the city centre of Santa Ponça, it was also a great spot to explore and very close to Palma. The hotel itself is not only beautiful; you have everything you might need without even stepping outside the doors. So I highly recommend it to all of you, if you’re in Mallorca for your first time.
When I hear about Spain and Mallorca in particular, the first thing I think of is its beautiful beaches. Mallorca is famous for its beaches and it has a wide variety of them. Everyone can find their perfect beach here. Whether you like a crystal clear water and a white sand or fancy beach backed by pine trees – you will find them in Mallorca, the finest exotic beach clubs in the world are located here! And imagine just for one second, how many stunning pictures you can take.
The next interesting spot, I would like to recommend you visiting apart from relaxing on the beach, are the caves. Located in Porto Cristo, the eastern coast of Mallorca (about 1h by car), Cuevas Drach is the world famous caves and a pure masterpiece. Discovered in 1905, they were the first caves in Spain opened to the public. Apart from its amazing underground lake Martel, considered one of the largest in the world, you can also enjoy a live classical music concert performed on the boat. It’s absolutely breathtaking.
PUIG DE SA MORISCA
If you prefer to stay active while on vacation, Puig De Sa Morisca is definitely a place for you to visit. The Archaeological Park, located in Santa Ponça, is completely free of charge and an amazing place to spend the day. Also, it’s a great trail for those who like to hike. On the top of the hill stands a cross to commemorate the arrival of King Jaume I at Santa Ponça Beach. The cross was built in 1929. The archaeological park itself is huge, about 35 square km, and was opened to the public in 2002.
So be sure to plan your day properly and visit every single piece of it. I was literally lost for words when we took a hike on the top of this hill. The view of Santa Ponça with its bay was absolutely breathtaking from such a height. And as a bonus – on the top of the hill we found the remains of an old watchtower.
Mallorca is a very vegan-friendly place. Here you can easily find something that delights your taste buds, whether you’re vegan or not. Lots and lots of small cafes and restaurants offering delicious food and fancy cocktails will please even the pickiest eater. So go ahead and find your favourite spot in Mallorca.
Sure there are lots of places to choose from and plenty of them still to be explored in Mallorca. I mentioned only a few of them in my Mallorca Travel Guide because I spent only 4 days there. Not much though. But truth to be told, I have a bit of a soft spot for this part of the world, and I’ll definitely come back very soon.
I hope you enjoyed reading my Mallorca Travel Guide.
