Mallorca is an amazing island in the Mediterranean sea, close to Spain, with nice weather, stunning landscape and delicious cuisine. The largest of the Balearic Islands, Mallorca is part of Spain but has a extra mountain landscape and high life quality. Top destinations in Majorca, the topic of today.
This upscale seaside resort on the Southwest Coast of Majorca is a favorite destination of the Spanish royal family and other trendsetting visitors. The chic marina is filled with luxury yachts and draws fashionable people to the yacht club, stylish shops, cafes, and restaurants. With its expensive boutiques and flashy cars (Ferraris and Porsches are common) seen racing through town, Puerto Portals feels like a smaller version of Monte Carlo in Monaco. Things to do on the waterfront range from a stroll up and down the waterfront while enjoying the scene, to stopping to shop at the designer stores. Gourmet dining is also a popular pastime at fancy restaurants such as the Michelin-starred Tristan Restaurant, as well as the more casual Tristan Bistro and Flanigan Restaurant. Many of the cafes and restaurants have pleasant outdoor patios to soak up the Mediterranean sunshine. Nearby, Marineland is an attraction for families with kids. Children love playing at the water park and seeing the dolphins and sea lion show. Also nearby is the Mood Beach Club, which has a beautiful beach and a gourmet restaurant.
The small town on the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range is one of the most dramatic and least known areas of Mallorca. Very popular with Mallorcans all year round, many visitors also like to explore this area, the majority of which is still 100% natural and construction free. To get there you will need to take a sharp right followed by a road which descends dramatically towards the sea, so much so that you will need to keep your foot firmly on the brakes. Halfway down the hill you can park your car in the small public car park and then continue your descent on foot till you reach Cala Banyalbufar. Once you have come level with the Mediterranean, you will see a small narrow bay off to your right. This fine stone bay is protected by a cliff, and fresh water flows down over some of its rocks, providing an improvised, and extremely refreshing, natural shower. These who make it down here are on the lookout for peace and quiet. There are no boats around and the stunning beauty of the landscape makes a swim here a real pleasure.
Mondrago National Park was another highlight for us in Mallorca. Gorgeous beaches surrounded by pine forests & sand dunes. As this beach is only accessible via car (not public transport or tour buses), it makes it harder to reach and less visited. There is one main beach – S’amardor beach and then a further 2 (Cala Mondrago, Cala d’en Borgit) which are both walking distance away. Our favourite was S’Amardor with its clean waters, soft sand and surrounding rock edges. What more do you need? Oh, a float. Don’t forget to bring your inflatable tube! Full day parking costs €5 and the beach is a short walk away without difficult navigation. Note: S’Amador has a small shack selling drinks and food but we wouldn’t rely on the quality. Instead, we’d suggest packing your own food and drinks for the day.
