Top attractions in Palma de Mallorca
Despite its reputation for partying until the break of dawn (although you can do that too!), Palma de Mallorca also offers plenty to do for those who want more of a low-key trip away. So, what is there to do?
Palma's heritage has Arabic and Roman influences. Get the full historical experience by joining a walking tour and delight in its diverse architecture!
The otherworldly Caves of Drach will add an unusual element to your trip. Pearls have traditionally been sourced here, and it's home to Lake Martel, the largest underground lake in Europe.
You don't have to alright know your way around a saddle to enjoy a day of horse-riding at Mallorca's Rancho Grande. It's the ultimate way to take in Mallorca's rural beauty.
Situtated upon a hill at the feet of the Tramuntana Mountains, the Mallorcan village of Valldemossa is a slice of Mediterranean paradise. It's no wonder Frederic Chopin wintered here.
This family-friendly park - which claims to have been blown in straight from Tibet - boasts a 4D movie theater, mini-golf, and lazer tag among other crazy ways to spend a day.
If the ocean's curious fauna delights you, get yourself to Mallorca's Aquario! It boasts Europe's biggest shark tank and you can even swim with manta rays!
Thought the sea couldn't get any bluer? Let Formentor and Puerto Pollensa prove you wrong! Take a boat trip, stroll along the perfect beach, and enjoy your afternoon.
One week for maximum chilling and sightseeing time!
Palma's labyrinthine streets are pretty walkable. There is also a value-for-money public bus system known as the EMT.
All times of the year are lovely, but between May and October ensures that all tours will be running - for example, some boat trips only take place between these months.
Keep hydrated, bring sunscreen, and stay out of the heat around midday. Mallorca's Mediterranean location makes it a very warm place.

What people are saying about Palma de Mallorca
Pick-up in time, small group of 7 tourists, interesting route, very nice views, time for shopping presents, coffee, tasting of local alcohol included. We could see west coast, east coast, inland, partly the south, as well, i. e. quite one half of the island. Unfortunately, I have got the worst place in the care, right seat last row, impossible to take photos from the car, all the views to the sea were on the left side. So, I would appreciate more photo-stops and maybe less time at the market in Santa Maria, instead. And a microphone for the driver would be good, too, as we missed most of the things the driver explained during the drive. But, I am very grateful for an extra service. I forgot a photo-poster in the car and the driver Roy brought it to me to the airport before my departure. As there is quite impossible to buy posters in Mallorca, I was very happy to have it back. Thank you, Roy! I recommend the trip as a first information of what to visit in Mallorca.
Marielaura is a very nice guide, who is able to explain very explicity the history of Palmas old quarter and of course the history and the specialities of tapas. Although I was the only guest, because the season has likely finished, she did not cancel the tour. It was a very entertaining evening, planned for 2,5 hours, but we talked so much about different topics (tapas, wine, the people, the spanish history, the mallorquin history) that we forgot the time and we were in the tapas bars for nearly 4 hours. I wish Marielaura and her husband much success for this business and many guests. Thanks for this great experience.
This was a relaxing way to see part of Palma old town, the modern art and the cathedral. Very interesting and enjoyable trip.
This tour is a must do for Mallorca! Our tour guide was amazing and very fun, helpful, and ensured everyone's safety. The off roading quadding and cliff jumping was so beautiful and worth it.
The guide Pablo was excellent, allowing us to make the most of the experience and giving us a variety of challenges. He was fun and inspiring and I would recommend this to anyone seeking a bit of adventure in the wonderful surroundings of the Mallorcan coast and cliffs.
