Top 10 things to do in Mallorca

Famous for its beaches, villas, and pearls, Mallorca is a little taste of paradise off Spain's Mediterranean coast. For decades it's been a popular hotspot for summer and winter holidays alike due to its many diverse attractions. Here are ten of the best.

La Seu (Palma Cathedral)

La Seu (Palma Cathedral)

Designed by Antoni Gaudí and Miquel Barceló, Palma's magnificent cathedral is unlike any in the world. Mass times vary, but you can be sure to catch one at 9:00AM daily.

Serra de Tramuntana

Serra de Tramuntana

The winding road through this breathtaking valley is well worth renting a car for. Be sure to stop off at the red-brick village of Deià and Sa Calobra's beautiful cove - but don't forget your map!

Cap de Formentor

Cap de Formentor

This is arguably Mallorca's most spectacular landscape, to be found at the eastern end of the Formentor peninsula. It's known locally as the "meeting point of the winds."

Castell de Bellver

Castell de Bellver

Conceived as a royal residence, this unique 14th-century castle in fact spent more time in use as a prison. As well as incredible hillside views, it's also home to a museum.

Fornalutx and Biniaraix

Fornalutx and Biniaraix

The walk between these two quaint towns covers some of the island's most exuberant scenery, with olive, oak, and pine trees, a watermill, and Fornalutx's citrus-littered cemetery.

Jardines d'Alfàbia

Jardines d'Alfàbia

Nestled in the rugged mountains of Serra d’Alfàbia, is this ambrosial garden that was once the courtyard of an Arab viceroy. Today, however, it's occupied by rambling farm animals.

Alcudia

Alcudia

In historical terms, Alcudia is Mallorca's second city. Its old town is encircled by a medieval wall, and its beaches and coves are perfect for swimming and snorkeling.

Puerto de Soller

Soller's port is the scenic highlight of this historic town, with twin lighthouses forming a gateway to its sandy bay. Don't miss touring the seafront on its vintage trams!

Illa de Cabrera

If you just can't get enough peace and quiet, then head to this uninhabited islet and National Park off Mallorca's south coast to sunbathe, hike, or explore its old castle.

Beaches

Beaches

Visiting Mallorca for the sea and sand? The resort beach of Playa de Muro is one of the best, but if you fancy something a little more isolated, then head to the wilder Es Trenc.

Our insider tips

When to visit?

The best time to visit Mallorca is between June and August, when the weather averages about 86°F and the coastal breeze stops temperatures from getting intolerable. This is also when the island hosts its music and film festivals. For a nice wintry trip with mild weather October won't disappointed - it's better-suited to exploring Mallorca's local cultures and historic buildings.

How to get there?

The simplest way to reach Mallorca is by flying to Palma de Mallorca Airport in the island's capital city. There are also several ferry services available from Barcelona, Valencia, and Ibiza.

    The milder months (September-March) are probably a suitable time to visit if you are looking for a quiet getaway - however, the island really comes to life in the summer.

What people are saying about Mallorca

Best tour we took during our NCL cruise!

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!

Great day thanks to Miguel for the tour and great info about the area.

Really good day out close to resort yet felt far enough away to be secluded. Guide was great knew a fair amount about the area and was great at keeping everyone informed. The jumps are good would like to go higher but its a group and not just me. The other aspects of the day were a bonus. Abseiling was fun rock climbing was harder than it looked and the cave at the end was cool. Would have liked to try the under water entrance but again not just me on the tour.

For me, a cycling tour with a guide is only one way to see a city

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.

Very friendly crew, clean boat and amazing blue-clear water swim in

Really enjoyed this boat trip. Everything went smoothly. The crew were fun and friendly. Informative announcements and a very clean boat. The swim was amazing - blue clear waters and plenty to see below the surface. The second stop was the best and with three stops there’s plenty of opportunity to swim. There’s not much shade so be prepared for five hours in the sun! Great trip!

Great fun with a really nice guide, Anna.

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.
