Welcome to Mallorca

Mallorca, the largest of Spain’s Balearic Islands, sparkles with a stunning coastline, staggering limestone bluffs, and Mediterannean charm. Crowned by the capital Palma de Mallorca, a walled city, the island nurtures secluded coves, impressive natural landscapes, and beaches surrounded by dramatic cliffs. Visitors can orient themselves on a hop-on hop-off bus tour of Palma to admire gothic Bellver Castle, Palma Arab Baths, and Palma La Seu Cathedral, which is illuminated at night. If your cruise ship docks in Mallorca for the day, opt for a guided tour that covers the stone city of Valldemossa and La Granja village; the stunning Soller Valley; and the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range, a UNESCO World Heritage site where thrill seekers can try cliff jumping. Bike and Segway tours take you through the winding streets of Palma’s Old Town and Gothic quarter; stop by family-friendly Palma Aquarium and the mysterious Caves of Drach, shrouded in stalactites and mysterious rock formations. Culinary tours invite foodies and friends to taste their way across the region: Spend the evening sampling tapas or sipping sangria in Palma, catch a Son Amar dinner and flamenco show, take a wine-tasting tour of Mallorca’s vineyards and wine cellars, or master Spanish dishes like gazpacho, paella, and Catalan cream during a cooking class.

Top 10 attractions in Mallorca

Caves of Drach (Cuevas del Drach)

Caves of Drach (Cuevas del Drach)

The Caves of Drach (Cuevas del Drach)—an enormous underground expanse of undulating sandstone, stalactites and stalagmites, and semiprecious agates—create an imaginarium of formations. This exquisite ornamentation frames one of Europe's largest underground lakes, Lake Martel, where classical musicians on boats serenade visitors.More
Playa de Muro

Playa de Muro

Playa de Muro is a beautiful six-kilometer-long sandy beach with turquoise water in northern Mallorca; it is one of the island’s newest resort destinations. It is a “Blue Flag” beach, meaning that it meets certain criteria in regards to the water quality, safety and services. Although quieter than neighbor beach Alcudia, Playa de Muro is less sheltered and can experience bigger waves during high winds. Playa de Muro is very popular with families thanks to its warm shallow waters; because of this, water-sport enthusiasts abound, be it for water-skiing, jet skiing, scuba diving, pedal boating or paragliding. There is also a wooden jetty for boats, and boat trips around the coast are offered.The westernmost portion of the beach, near Alcudia, is lined with resort hotels and holiday apartments, which all have premium access to the beach. Note that it is possible for non-guests to rent loungers and parasols upon request; this is also where most of the restaurants, cafés, and bars are located. Further east is the two-kilometer long Es Brac area, very similar in shape and style but overally quieter. At the eastern end of Playa de Muro is Es Comu, where the unspoiled and non-serviced beaches are located. This is the true natural side of Mallorca, with plenty sand dunes, pine trees, and juniper bushes. This portion is not accessible from the street; there are two distinct entry points, in Casetes des Capellans and in Es Brac.More
Formentor and Puerto Pollensa

Formentor and Puerto Pollensa

With its beautiful white sand beaches framed in picturesque rocky points, Puerto Pollensa (Port de Pollença) on majestic Formentor peninsula has become a magnet for holiday goers with a taste for the finer things in life. Everyone from families to water sports enthusiasts come for the cafe-lined promenade, marina, and the Bay of Pollensa.More
Bellver Castle

Bellver Castle

Set atop a wooded hill overlooking Palma, the 14th-century Bellver Castle (Castell de Bellver) is known for its distinctive circular design—it is supposedly the only Spanish castle to bear this shape. Built for King James II, the castle later served as a military prison and mint and now houses the City History Museum (Museu d'Història de la Ciutat).More
Serra de Tramuntana

Serra de Tramuntana

The unique cultural landscape of Serra de Tramontana landed it a spot on UNESCO’s World Heritage list. The craggy mountain range covers the northwest side of the island of Mallorca. Standing tall at 1,445 meters, the range’s principle peak Puig Major is the tallest in the Balearic Islands. The limestone mountains receive a higher amount of rainfall than the rest of the island, and often receive snowfall in the winter.Due to the biodiversity of plant and animal species - and to protect against urbanization - the area has been protected as a natural reserve. Historic villages with structures such as water mills, farms, agricultural and irrigation systems remain in place. Some methods have been in use since the Middle Ages, and demonstrate both Christian and Muslim cultural influence in this area.With ocean views of turquoise waters and pine-forested hillsides, it is a popular place to enjoy scenic hiking, biking, and other outdoor activities.More
Palma Cathedral (La Seu)

Palma Cathedral (La Seu)

After King James I (Jaume 1) conquered the Balearic Islands in 1229, he began the conversion of a Moorish-era mosque in present-day Palma de Mallorca (Majorca) into a grand Catalan Gothic-style cathedral overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. The golden sandstone façade, the city’s most notable landmark, took more than 400 years to complete.More
Platja des Coll Baix

Platja des Coll Baix

The island of Mallorca is known for its turquoise waters and scenic natural beauty, and Plajita des Coll Baix no exception to this. What makes this secluded beach special, aside from its idyllic surroundings, is the fact that it is protected and often deserted. Because it is difficult to reach, crowds are nearly nonexistent and you may even have the beach to yourself.Opening out into a wide sea inlet, the soft and sandy beach is surrounded by tall, rocky cliffs and Mediterranean forest. It is hard to imagine clearer or more vibrantly colored waters. The stunning beach is most popular with those who love the outdoors and don’t mind some hiking — as it is only accessible by boat or foot. Those who go will undoubtedly agree that the trek is worth it. Boat operators often lead tours from town. It’s quietest in the morning and evening.More
Inca Market

Inca Market

One of Mallorca’s biggest outdoor weekly markets, Inca Market takes over the island’s leather-making town of Inca every Thursday. Offering more than 100 stalls, the market is a great place for snapping up traditional local leatherware, handicrafts, delicacies, and fresh produce.More
Hams Caves (Cuevas dels Hams)

Hams Caves (Cuevas dels Hams)

The island of Mallorca is home to more than 200 caves and the Cuevas del Ham, or Caves of Hams, are one of the most popular to visit. Located along an underground river called the Sea of Venice, these caves are notable for their spiral and hook-shaped stalactites. Many travelers visit these caves during a multi-destination day trip.More
Sa Calobra Canyon and Beach (Torrent de Pareis)

Sa Calobra Canyon and Beach (Torrent de Pareis)

One of the most popular day walks in Mallorca, the challenging Torrent de Pareis hike slices through the Sa Calobra Canyon and offers spectacular views of the Tramuntana Mountains. After completing the hike, enjoy access to remote and pebbly beaches, as well as the charming town of Sa Calobra.More

A local’s pocket guide to Mallorca

Monica Nunez

Monica loves Mallorca, where you’ll find her in Port de Pollensa having a cocktail by the beach or practicing some water sports.

The first thing you should do in Mallorca is...

walk around Palma city, visit the cathedral, and immerse yourself in the Mediterranean spirit.

A perfect Saturday in Mallorca...

involves visiting monuments such as the cathedral or the Royal Palace of the Almudaina in Palma, enjoying barbecued octopus for lunch, and driving to Es Trenc beach to relax.

One touristy thing that lives up to the hype is...

Cuevas del Drach. It’s a very popular attraction on the island but it’s worth going to admire the incredible rock formations and to catch a classic concert.

To discover the "real" Mallorca...

head to the East coast and visit Alcudia, Formentor, and Pollensa. It’s one of the most beautiful and least busy areas of Mallorca.

For the best view of the city...

you need to go to Cape Formentor to see one of the most amazing sunsets in Spain.

One thing people get wrong...

is only going to Magaluf without visiting other, more beautiful parts of the island.
