Mallorca has a lot to offer – beaches, mountains, culture, parties, shopping and lots and lots of sun. My friends and I went there for a week in June. The weather was great although I wouldn’t had minded if it had been a bit warmer, but going in June means fewer tourists to compete with.
We tried to make the most of our vacation by visiting more than just one beach, furtner down is a list of a few locations on the island.
Alcúdia is a village located in the northern parts of the island. It’s one of the most visited and many tourists stay here throughout the holiday.
The beach is close by and has beautiful white sand.
Not far from Alcúdia is a gorgeous lookout point. The sea is 300 meters below so if you suffer from vertigo like me, it’s a thrilling experience to say the least.
If you drive down from Mirador d’es Colomer you can find a nice natural beach surrounded by woods and mountains. It was a bit tricky to find in 2012 but with Google Maps, it shouldn’t be a problem.
Palma is the capital of Mallorca and not only does it have good shopping and lots of tapas restaurants, there’s a harbour and beach nearby.
It’ll probably remind you of Barcelona, only smaller. It has the same cosy charm and old buildings.
Valldemossa is located on the western side of Mallorca not far from Palma. It’s one of the most picturesque villages on the island.
The houses are old and the streets are lined with plants and flowers. The view from the village, which is located on a hill is breathtaking.
After walking around in Valldemossa, we headed down to Puerto De Sóller for a swim. It’s located in a horseshoe bay and as many other places on Mallorca, surrounded by mountains.
We rented a car twice and drove to a bunch of random places. Mallorca isn't a big island so we could fit 4-5 locations in one day. If you're there I definitely recommend renting a car and get lost, it's really the best way to find lovely villages without tourists.
Our first stop was the tiniest village somewhere around Selva, where we found a small market place and got some cherries.
