Mallorca tourism website
Yo soy Mallorca is a tourism site about Mallorca written by local residents, so our priority is to offer you useful and quality information and advice, promoting the practice of a type of tourism that is responsible, sustainable and respectful with our island.
We want to help you to organise your trip to Mallorca on your own in a simple way, offering you all the information you may need from the moment you begin your arrangements until you find yourself enjoying the island. One of the most spectacular places in the world awaits you and we want you to experience and enjoy it before, during and after.
Plan and organise your trip with Yo soy Mallorca
The 262 beaches and coves in Mallorca are the main tourist attraction and this is to be expected as some of the island’s beaches are ranked among the best at international level. In 2022, for example, Playa de Muro was the only Spanish beach to make it into the rankings of the 25 best beaches in Europe and the 25 best beaches in the world in the “Best of the Best by Travellers’ Choice (Tripadvisor)” awards. That’s quite something!
However, Mallorca is much more than that. On our website we write about the beaches, but also about the history of Mallorca, its towns and villages, its lighthouses, its culture, its traditions and its gastronomy. We want you to get to know all the details that make this island such an special place ❤️.
But the first thing you will need to know and that we tell you about are the different options you have to get to Mallorca, as it is an island, you will only be able to do this by plane or by ferry, in addition to the current COVID19 pandemic requirements and restrictions, and whether or not it is necessary to hire a travel insurance.
Book your vehicle before travelling to Mallorca
Once in Mallorca and with your accommodation booked, the best option for getting to and around the island is hiring a car.
We would love to tell you that this is not necessary and that you can travel around Mallorca, with no limitations, by public transport. Our intention is to promote a responsible and sustainable model of tourism with the environment and local culture, distancing ourselves from the promotion of certain practices related to mass tourism, but we would be lying if we told you that Mallorca can easily be explored without a car.
We also recommend that you book your vehicle as far in advance as possible as there is a lot of demand, the options are limited and the cost increases considerably as the dates of travel approach, especially in the summer season.

If this is your first time on the island and you don’t want to miss anything, we recommend you to download the free Mallorca map that we have prepared for the readers of our website.

Relax and enjoy Mallorca
Whether you travel to Mallorca for many days or just for one weekend, the island is an ideal place to relax and unwind, as well as it has an infinite number of options if you are one of those who prefer to be more active. You will be able to practice alternative and sustainable sports such as hiking and cycle touring, which are becoming more and more fashionable, as well as enjoying other activities such as sailing aboard a boat, watching a beautiful sunset from Formentor lighthouse or dining in one of the trendiest neighbourhoods of nowadays, Santa Catalina.
