The capital of the island which has much to offer...fantastic selection of restaurants and bars, good shopping, city-close beaches and beautiful architecture. If you want to stay in Palma we recommend the old town. If you want recommendations for restaurants - let us know and we'll hook you up!
There are two beaches in Illetes which are our GO-TO beaches when we visit Palma. You might have to touch shoulders with one our two tourists or locals since the beach is very popular. We think its part of the charm and worth it! At both beaches (the smaller and the bigger one) you can find restaurants. You can transport yourself from Palma centre by bus, taxi or car.
A cute and scenic village (part of UNESCOs world herritage sites) in the mountains where you can stroll around the narrow streets with a cooling gelato in your hands. A perfect stop on the way to the villages of Deia and Soller.
Calo des Moro
If you are looking for the islands most breath taking beach we would like to insist that Calo des Moro is the one! After a short walk through vegetation from the parking lot you can glimpse the insanely turquoise water and the closer you get, the more beautiful it becomes. If you are planning to spend the whole day at the beach we recommend that you arrive early to get a comfortable spot (the beach is quite small). We also recommend bringing your own lunch and a good amount of water since there are no restaurants nearby the beach.
When the winds are calm and the weather is on top, Es Trenc is a beautiful beach to visit. The beach is large and you wont have to fight for your own spot. The water is shallow and beautifully turqouise. We want to warn you that the middle section of the beach is nude friendly! ;)
Hotel Hoposa, Deia
This past summer the bride and her sisters stayed at this beautiful boutiqe hotel located close to Deia with the sea as its neighbour. At this hotel your room will be located in typical mallorquin stone house and while you soak up the sun by the pool you can look out at the blue horizon. After a fresh lunch at the terrace you can bring your fins and goggles and walk down to the private sea access.
Bodega SON PRIM
For those of you who would like to discover Mallorcas selection of wine producers - we recommend a visit to this vineyard. We have not been there ourselves yet but we more than often enjoy a glass of SON PRIM wine when we visit the island. FYI! you might have to contact the bodega in advance.
Petra & Ariany
The two beautiful villages recently discovered by us while planning the wedding.
At the north tip of the island you find Formentor. Still on our to do-list is to spend a day at the bautiful beach there. If you follow the windy roads with breathtaking views you will end up at the lighthouse.
