Mallorca is a gorgeous Mediterranean island, close to Spain, with awesome weather, amazing scenery and yummy cuisine. The largest of the Balearic Islands, Mallorca is part of Spain but has a more rugged landscape and high life quality. Majorca travel attractions, the subject of today.
For those seeking a sunny beach vacation, Llucmajor is an ideal choice. About 25 kilometres south of Palma de Mallorca, this spectacular stretch of the Mallorca coast has many beautiful coves, beaches, and cliffs. The 16th-century defensive towers along the Llucmajor coast offer stunning views. The Playa del Arenal is an extensive beach that extends all the way to Palma de Mallorca; the neighboring towns share the same beach. The calm waters of El Arenal Beach are ideal for swimming, while part of the beach is a designated surfing area. Amenities include a yacht club, tourist office, and public toilets. Sun umbrellas, loungers, and watersports equipment are available to rent. In a protected area at the bottom of a tidal inlet, the Cala Pi Beach has natural charm despite being surrounded by hotels and housing. Cala Pi is a sandy beach with gentle crystal-clear waters that are ideal for scuba-diving. Sunbathers can rent umbrellas and loungers.
The town of Valldemossa is only around 15-20 minutes’ drive from Palma into the Tramuntana mountains, but feels a world away from the capital. Perched on a hilltop, surrounded by terraced terrain, it was named after the area’s original Moorish landowner, Muza. The highest town in Mallorca is probably best-known as the place where the Polish composer Frederic Chopin and his lover, the writer George Sand, spent the winter of 1838/9, staying in rented rooms in the monastery. And, as a result, it’s probably Mallorca’s most visited town. You can visit Valldemossa’s Real Cartuja (Royal Carthusian monastery), including the church, cloisters, old pharmacy, and the cells said to be where Chopin and Sand stayed (containing the composer’s piano and other artefacts). Part of the monastery is King Sancho’s palace – later gifted to Carthusian monks, who converted it and other buildings into the monastery. It probably has more visitors than any other building in Mallorca, apart from Palma’s cathedral, La Seu. A ticket for the Real Cartuja includes a short Chopin piano recital. For more chances to hear a variety of international musicians playing music from the composer, visit in August, when Valldemossa hosts the annual Chopin Festival.
It’s not an overwhelmingly large market, therefore, it isn’t crowded with tons of tourists like the markets in Barcelona. You can find everything from fresh fruits and vegetables to meats, cheeses, seafood, local delicacies, baked goods & fresh flowers. Not keen on cooking? Pull up a chair and join the locals at one of the notable bars scattered throughout, serving typical tapa dishes. Another great way to take in the Mallorca sun is heading out on the water for a day of relaxing, snorkelling, BBQs and wine! There are plenty of companies that offer half day, full day or sunset catamaran trips leaving from different parts of the island. Based on our location (Santa Catalina), we opted to spend a whole day out on the water with Oasis Catamaran. It was an early start of 9:30 am and we returned to the marina right in front of Santa Catalina by 3:00 pm. Snacks and lunch were provided, as well as ‘free-flowing’ wine during lunch and the option to buy cocktails throughout the day. Sit back, relax and let the day float by. Snorkels & paddleboards are provided.
