Mallorca has a postcard perfect coastline, pretty fishing villages, dramatic mountains and a very high standard of accommodation. Highlights of Mallorca include:
- The capital city of Palma with its majestic cathedral surrounded by labyrinthine streets with boutiques, pavement cafes and designer shops.
- Pollenca old town filled with cobbled streets, squares with al fresco dining and a weekly market.
- Puerto Soller with its beautiful horseshoe shaped bay and stunning mountainous backdrop.
- The alpine like peaks of the Tramuntana mountains, a UNESCO world heritage site.
- Cala San Vicente, a fishing village with a choice of sand, pebbly or rocky beach.
- The stylish resort of Illetas with its luxury hotels, bars and beach clubs on a sandy cove south west of Palma.
- Picturesque Deya, former home to the poet Robert Graves, now home to one of the most luxurious hotels on the island.
You can be as active or inactive as you want on Mallorca, as it has beautiful beaches but is also great for cycling, hiking and horse riding. We feature Mallorcan style hotels of a very high standard, many of which feature yoga and pilates as part of their programmes and have tennis courts or cycling facilities. We can book you a traditional Mallorca farmhouse, a luxury villa (fully staffed if you wish), a family villa with private pool, a boutique hotel or luxury resort. There are almost daily flights from many UK airports so Mallorca is perfect for a short getaway as well as for an extended break.
Rising abruptly out of the island’s interior are the craggy outcrops of the Tramuntana Mountains over which birds of prey can often be seen soaring on the breeze. The mountains provide some of the best walking in Mallorca, following a network of established trails, with spectacular vistas from the highest peaks to the Mediterranean. Elsewhere on the island coastal walks reveal sleepy fishing marinas, secret coves and pebble bays. Decent maps and walking guidebooks are available so walking on the island is largely self-guided, although we can book you on a group walking tour if you prefer. Perhaps the nicest way to enjoy the island is to stay in a luxury villa or hotel in or around Soller and take day trips for some of the spectacular walking.
In recent years Mallorca has become really popular for cyclists largely due to its great road surfaces, varied landscapes and great climate. Bikes (both electric and standard) are available for hire on the island if you don’t want to being your own. And some of the hotels we feature make bikes available to their guests.
