Introducing Mallorca

Discover a choice of pine-fringed white-sand beaches that indent a 500km-long coastline and border lively resorts crammed with bars, restaurants and hotels.

What to do and see in Mallorca

Explore the island’s interior on foot, bike or by hire car, a scenic landscape of almond and olive groves, pine forests, whitewashed windmills and picture-perfect mountain villages scattered across the spectacular Serra de Tramuntana mountain range.

Discover Mallorca’s vibrant resorts. An excellent family friendly option is the purpose-built resort of Palma Nova, located on a white-sand beach on the southwest coast of Mallorca and featuring dolphin and seal shows at Marineland and a themed crazy-golf park at Golf Fantasia.

Nearby Magaluf is a party-central resort known for its great music bars as well as two water parks and a go-karting track. Or try Puerto de Alcúdia, a sprawling resort that fringes a gorgeous beach on the northeast coast of Mallorca.

Away from the beach, choose from several marked hiking trails that network the dramatic Serra de Tramuntana mountain range stretching along the island’s west coast. Or ride belle epoque rail carriages through inspiring mountain scenery between Palma and Sóller.

By hire car, explore narrow and winding roads that weave through wooded valleys and steep mountain slopes dotted with picturesque villages to a jagged-edged coastline of pine-fringed cliffs overlooking secluded sandy coves.

Discover the charming cobblestone hamlets of Estallenchs, Bañalbufar and Fornalutx, and visit medieval monasteries at Valldemossa and Lluc.

In Mallorca's capital, Palma de Mallorca (or Palma), explore atmospheric old alleyways and squares around the Plaça Santa Eulalia and along the seafront wander wide boulevards past 12th century ramparts at Ses Voltes.

Visit the magnificent Gothic Sa Seu Cathedral, home to flying buttresses that support one of the largest naves in Europe.

At Museu Fundació Pilar y Joan Miró, see a collection of more than 100 paintings and sculptures and scores of drawings housed in the artist’s former studio.

Later, browse elegant fashion boutiques, leather goods stores and handicraft shops on Passeig des Borne all the way to Plaça Cort. Then savour a cocktail at an al fresco café facing a bay famous that is renowned for its magical sunsets.
