Our favourite places that you’ll love in Majorca!

Eleanor Ferrari, our Outbound Product Co-ordinator, and Sonia Oliveira, one of our Reservations Agents, recently visited the beautiful Balearic Island of Majorca. Check out their recommendations for the best things to do and places to visit during your holiday!


Road trip to Valldemossa & Deia

Eleanor Ferrari, Outbound Product Co-ordinator

If you’re looking to experience the traditional side of Majorca, you’ll love exploring the picture-perfect villages, coves and mountain views along Majorca’s north eastern coast. During my most recent visit to Majorca I hired a car which I would recommend if you want to travel at your own pace, as you can stop at the sights that interest you along the way. The first highlight of my trip was Valldemossa, which is a picturesque village nestled in the Tramuntana mountains. As you explore its cobbled streets, you’ll find plenty of rest stops to admire the stunning mountain views, and around every corner you’ll discover something new, whether it’s a Cathedral, manicured garden or hidden tapas bar.

Like Valldemossa, the village of Deia is a small but beautiful place strung along a steep mountain face, and it’s one of the most unique places I’ve ever visited! As you walk up and down the winding streets you’ll come across boutique shops, shaded restaurants and various walking routes, and once you feel like you’ve seen everything you’ll come across another street offering even more to explore! If the sea is calling you, you’ll want to walk down to Cala Deia, which is a beautiful cove nestled between the mountains offering irresistible sparkling blue water to swim and snorkel!

Calo d’es Moro

Sonia Oliveira, Reservations Advisor

You won’t struggle to find a beautiful beach in Majorca, and if you choose to stay along the coast you will never be too far away from one! If, however if you’re like me and want to discover one of the most beautiful and secluded beaches in Majorca, you’d love Calo d’es Moro in the southeast of the island. The beach has been relatively unspoilt and for a while was a well-kept secret by the locals, hidden by the steep cliffs that surround it.

Although it’s now more popular with tourists its attraction hasn’t dwindled, and if you’re comfortable with the somewhat challenging walk down to the beach then you’ll have a fantastic time swimming in the clear turquoise water and basking on the white sandy beach. I spent a whole afternoon here relaxing in the water and luckily remembered my snorkel and saw hundreds of playful fish amongst the rocks, it feels like a tiny piece of paradise!

Globales Cala Vinas Hotel

Eleanor Ferrari, Outbound Product Co-ordinator

During my holiday to Majorca I really wanted to have the ocean at my fingertips, and Globales Cala Vinas Hotel did not disappoint. As soon as you walk into the reception you are greeted with the most spectacular view of the ocean, and most of their rooms are sea facing which is perfect for lazy evenings on the balcony. If you feel like taking a dip, accessing the sandy Cala Vinas beach couldn’t be easier with steps leading from the pool (which also overlooks the sea!) to the beach. On a couple of occasions, I had cocktails and tapas at Chiringuito beach bar which is a five-minute walk from the hotel, the food was fantastic and a lot of the same hotel guests would visit most nights so there was always a friendly atmosphere.

One of the stand out elements of the hotel was its outdoor bar and entertainment area, which was formed from the surrounding rock making it into an impressive cave. It was great having such a unique place to unwind after a day of sightseeing, and made the experience that much more memorable!

Soller and Tren de Soller

Sonia Oliveira, Reservations Advisor

During my trip to Majorca I had a fantastic day exploring the atmospheric town of Soller, a beautiful rural spot nestled between the mountains and the sea, attracting visitors looking to wine, dine and explore the local sights. You can get to the town easily by car but I would recommend getting the vintage orange train from Palma, called Tren de Soller. The journey is an attraction in itself, giving you an hour and a half of beautiful scenic views of the landscape, passing orange, lemon and olive fields along the way.

The narrow streets of Soller are picture perfect, lined with houses with traditional green shutters giving it its charm, separated by enticing ice-cream parlours and cafes. Once you’ve soaked up the beautiful views with a coffee or sangria, there are some fascinating museums where you can learn about the country and region’s rich history. We also managed to squeeze in a visit to Port de Soller, which is a traditional fishing village that can be accessed from the main town by taking a vintage tram. The bay is lined with restaurants and also has a gorgeous beach where you can swim safely in the calm water, making perfect for anyone with young children.

Palma

Eleanor Ferrari, Outbound Product Co-ordinator

Palma is Majorca’s vibrant capital and is definitely worth visiting for a day trip or perhaps longer! As you’d expect with a bustling European capital city, it’s a treasure trove for shopping lovers, culture seekers and those simply looking to try the local cuisine. I was only planning on visiting Palma for a day but decided to go back for a second time because there is so much to see and do. During your visit you’ll want to see the cathedral up close as it really is something to be admired, and if you’re a fan of architecture you can also enter the cathedral and admire its exuberant gothic style and decoration.

Palma’s old town is where you’ll find most of the city’s beautiful buildings, museums and traditional tapas bars, and if you’ve done a fair share of walking already you can take a horse and carriage ride through the historical streets and passages. We learnt a lot from the local rider who brought the city to life through interesting stories its past, it would be a great activity for couples and families alike.
