Book a vehicle to get around the island

The most advisable thing to do is to have a vehicle to get around Mallorca, as the distances are long and, as we have already explained you, public transport is limited.

You can rent a car, but you can also hire a bicycle or a motorbike, depending on your plan. You will be able to pick it up at Palma Airport or at the seaport, depending on whether you arrive by plane or ferry, or you can arrange to pick it up somewhere else with the company you choose.

Get to know the history and culture of Mallorca

Mallorca is full of history, which you will discover through iconic monuments such as the St Mary’s Cathedral or The Castle of Bellver (Castillo de Bellver), being the departure point of a journey through time that culminates in the superb modernism that you will be able to admire in the capital and in towns such as Sóller.

The three best beaches in Mallorca

As we assume that your trip to Mallorca is limited to a few days, you probably won’t have time to visit all the beaches and coves. We tell you what we consider to be three of the best beaches in Mallorca, so that you can include some of the good ones in your trip.

And if you already know them or want to discover some more, you can consult the Mallorca’s beach guide we have prepared for you and fall even more in love with this island.

Do you want to surprise your partner with a special plan? We provide you with some ideas!

Marvel with these natural monuments

Mallorca hides authentic natural treasures, some of them underground. Geological processes have created impressive formations that constitute true paradises that we can admire today.

Stalactites and stalagmites, tunnels, salt and fresh water lakes… these are just a few examples of the structures you will come across when you visit the island’s caves. We recommend that you make time for at least one of them! If you ask us for advice… we would tell you to choose the Drach Caves.

Outdoor activities for the most adventurous

Mallorca is nature and as such you will be able to practice many outdoor activities and sports. If you like adventure, don’t miss this selection!
