Top 10 things to do in Mallorca

Famous for its beaches, villas, and pearls, Mallorca is a little taste of paradise off Spain's Mediterranean coast. For decades it's been a popular hotspot for summer and winter holidays alike due to its many diverse attractions. Here are ten of the best.

  • La Seu (Palma Cathedral)

    1. La Seu (Palma Cathedral)

    Designed by Antoni Gaudí and Miquel Barceló, Palma's magnificent cathedral is unlike any in the world. Mass times vary, but you can be sure to catch one at 9:00AM daily.

  • Serra de Tramuntana

    2. Serra de Tramuntana

    The winding road through this breathtaking valley is well worth renting a car for. Be sure to stop off at the red-brick village of Deià and Sa Calobra's beautiful cove - but don't forget your map!

  • Cap de Formentor

    3. Cap de Formentor

    This is arguably Mallorca's most spectacular landscape, to be found at the eastern end of the Formentor peninsula. It's known locally as the "meeting point of the winds."

  • Castell de Bellver

    4. Castell de Bellver

    Conceived as a royal residence, this unique 14th-century castle in fact spent more time in use as a prison. As well as incredible hillside views, it's also home to a museum.

  • Fornalutx and Biniaraix

    5. Fornalutx and Biniaraix

    The walk between these two quaint towns covers some of the island's most exuberant scenery, with olive, oak, and pine trees, a watermill, and Fornalutx's citrus-littered cemetery.

  • Jardines d'Alfàbia

    6. Jardines d'Alfàbia

    Nestled in the rugged mountains of Serra d’Alfàbia, is this ambrosial garden that was once the courtyard of an Arab viceroy. Today, however, it's occupied by rambling farm animals.

  • Alcudia

    7. Alcudia

    In historical terms, Alcudia is Mallorca's second city. Its old town is encircled by a medieval wall, and its beaches and coves are perfect for swimming and snorkeling.

  • Puerto de Soller

    8. Puerto de Soller

    Soller's port is the scenic highlight of this historic town, with twin lighthouses forming a gateway to its sandy bay. Don't miss touring the seafront on its vintage trams!

  • Illa de Cabrera

    9. Illa de Cabrera

    If you just can't get enough peace and quiet, then head to this uninhabited islet and National Park off Mallorca's south coast to sunbathe, hike, or explore its old castle.

  • Beaches

    10. Beaches

    Visiting Mallorca for the sea and sand? The resort beach of Playa de Muro is one of the best, but if you fancy something a little more isolated, then head to the wilder Es Trenc.

Planning Your Visit

  • When to visit?

    The best time to visit Mallorca is between June and August, when the weather averages about 86°F and the coastal breeze stops temperatures from getting intolerable. This is also when the island hosts its music and film festivals. For a nice wintry trip with mild weather October won't disappointed - it's better-suited to exploring Mallorca's local cultures and historic buildings.

  • How to get there?

    The simplest way to reach Mallorca is by flying to Palma de Mallorca Airport in the island's capital city. There are also several ferry services available from Barcelona, Valencia, and Ibiza.

Amazing experience with guide Pablo. It was my first time driving a quad and it ended up being a private tour - which worked out perfectly. Pablo was very kind, patience and attentive through my learning and went at a slow pace till I got comfortable. He also offered to take photos and videos from different angles. The drive to the mountain is very scenic going through the smaller towns. The cliff at the end (option for diving and swimming) also has beautiful views.

We loved this trip! In the beginning it seemed like a lot of money but it is totally worth it! You go by bus through the stunning nature in the mountains, than visit a beautiful privat small beach and go by ship, than by Tram and than by the Wooden Train. I can’t describe in words how beautiful this view was or how great our time has been on this trip. Also our instructor did a great job! I loved her jokes! RECOMMEND!!

Super sweet guide and driver. Longer then I expected in the bus driving but still I fun, enjoyable experience. The music in the cave at the end was my highlight I got chills because of how amazing it was.

great route & opportunities for photos, nice balance of scenic and off-road experience

Great experience. Our guide, Pablo, was very friendly.
