Top attractions in Palma de Mallorca
Despite its reputation for partying until the break of dawn (although you can do that too!), Palma de Mallorca also offers plenty to do for those who want more of a low-key trip away. So, what is there to do?
Palma's heritage has Arabic and Roman influences. Get the full historical experience by joining a walking tour and delight in its diverse architecture!
The otherworldly Caves of Drach will add an unusual element to your trip. Pearls have traditionally been sourced here, and it's home to Lake Martel, the largest underground lake in Europe.
You don't have to alright know your way around a saddle to enjoy a day of horse-riding at Mallorca's Rancho Grande. It's the ultimate way to take in Mallorca's rural beauty.
Situtated upon a hill at the feet of the Tramuntana Mountains, the Mallorcan village of Valldemossa is a slice of Mediterranean paradise. It's no wonder Frederic Chopin wintered here.
This family-friendly park - which claims to have been blown in straight from Tibet - boasts a 4D movie theater, mini-golf, and lazer tag among other crazy ways to spend a day.
If the ocean's curious fauna delights you, get yourself to Mallorca's Aquario! It boasts Europe's biggest shark tank and you can even swim with manta rays!
Thought the sea couldn't get any bluer? Let Formentor and Puerto Pollensa prove you wrong! Take a boat trip, stroll along the perfect beach, and enjoy your afternoon.
One week for maximum chilling and sightseeing time!
Palma's labyrinthine streets are pretty walkable. There is also a value-for-money public bus system known as the EMT.
All times of the year are lovely, but between May and October ensures that all tours will be running - for example, some boat trips only take place between these months.
Keep hydrated, bring sunscreen, and stay out of the heat around midday. Mallorca's Mediterranean location makes it a very warm place.

What people are saying about Palma de Mallorca
If anyone is looking for an adventurous way to see Mallorca, this is the way to go! We had so much fun with Pablo riding the quads through the streets and eventually to some bumpy, wet farm roads! Be prepared to get a little dirty! All equipment is provided by the friendly owners. You just need your drivers license. Wear your swim suit for the optional cliff jump at the end. You can snorkel too Great way to end the tour! NCL boaters, book this tour on your own. It’s a short 20 minute cab ride from the ship! This was worth it!
Fernando was a friendly and knowledgable guide and it was a great way to see the city. So highly recommended. Two learning points 1. We booked an English speaking 3 hour tour but a Spanish non English speaking couple were on the same tour which, I felt, lead to some down time for us as Fernando translated and 2. We didn’t book the tapas which meant that two hours into the tour we had half an hour down time before we carried on.
I was switched from the morning session to the evening one because of the weather..but the weather was fine in the morning & rained badly in the afternoon! So we weren’t able to go snorkelling, BUT we were treated to a free drink & tapas :) Anna took a group photo of us & I think this tour would be even better if we had more opportunity to take our own photos on the quad bikes.
It started with not finding the guide. But he called us and explained where to meet. Good service! We got to see the main attractions of the city and were offered tastings along the way. Everything was efficiently and professionally arranged. The tour ended with a lovely tapas dinner.
Our guide is a true local person who grew up in Palma. He knew all the stories and history of the Palma Majorca. We had a great time riding and getting to know about Palma, and made us to plan for next visit to Palma. Highly recommend doing a guided bike tour.
