It’s not only the sunny climate and 100+ beaches that have made Mallorca an enduringly popular destination in the Mediterranean. The largest of the Balearic Islands is also blessed with stunning scenery, picture-perfect rural villages, a trendy, cosmopolitan capital, and a huge choice of outdoor pursuits.
Neither too small nor too large, you can easily drive around the island in a day and there’s plenty of diversity to be found along the way, from the sophisticated shopping and thriving foodie scene in Palma to the traditional market towns and villages in the interior. You’ll find open plains dotted with windmills, the dramatic Tramuntana mountain range, where citrus groves cling to the hillsides, busy beach resorts and undeveloped, secluded coves.
Mallorca is a mecca for outdoors enthusiasts who come for the sailing, the mountain cycling, the hiking trails and the 20 golf courses, to name a few. Venture beyond the beaches and you’ll quickly discover Mallorca’s many charms.
