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
The employees were very helpful. We saw different species of fish in a magical environment. The place we were went snorkelling was beautiful, including the scenery. We were welcomed by clear blue waters .
Had a question about pickup and GYG response was less than desirable, had to send the request several times before getting my question answered.
Nice Maria and the driver! They bring you in the center of the city and explain to you what you can do.. you have really long time about 6 hours, it’s enough for take round! Amazing!
From the Captain to the Crew and the astonishing lunch, this excursion exceeding my expectations. Only recommendation is if you are allowed bring some floating devices especially for weak and young swimmers. The current is strong even though you are not aware. Or if the captain can add floating devices to the excursion, this recommendation will just add value and peace for families traveling with small, teenage children. Overall BEST Catamaran Experience to date.
I am a certified diver that went on trip with someone who is not a diver and they wanted to get the experience but not waste the majority of the day sitting in a classroom, the PETER system was a great way to enjoy it. The equipment was easy to use and after a short class we were off to the water! Our trainer/tour guide Tony was great. He was very knowledgeable, professional and had a sense of humor which was a definite plus as it helped out a lot while he was giving us the class. I would definitely recommend this to all novice water enthusiasts who might like to try diving and are not sure if it would be for them.
