Weekend Escape in Mallorca : Things to do

The beauty of this island is that no matter how many places you have seen or explored-there will always be more things to do in Palma! No amount of time is enough to explore the island of Mallorca, and that has nothing to do with the size of the island but rather with the fact that there are so many ‘hidden’ spots that many people haven’t had a chance to discover just yet. If you are planning a weekend escape in Mallorca, we want to share some places with you that you cannot miss!

Day 1 : Serra de Tramuntana 

The west coast of the island is being ‘accessorized’ by the large mountain range called Serra de Tramuntana, declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in the Cultural Landscape category, where some of the most beautiful towns of Mallorca are being situated.

First stop: Valldemossa-the town known as ‘the most artistic town of Mallorca’ where many artists, poets and musicians have found the muse for some of their remarkable works. The town is very cozy and peaceful, perfect for early birds who love to start the day with the best coffee in the town (Courtesy of Cappuccino Grand Café, situated in the center of the town). Valldemossa is definitely the best place to start the day, a must among the things to do in Palma, while you wonder the tiny streets of the town decorated in the most original and fascinating way, making you feel like the main character of a beautiful fairytale. Small pastry shops with the best traditional specialties of Mallorca will make your morning even sweeter, and give you the energy you need for the day! Valdemossa has a small port only a few minutes drive from the town, where you can admire the calmness of the Balearic Sea.

Na Foradada is the view spot with one of the most impressive panoramic views on the island! Here you can have a little drink in the ‘chiringuito’ or the restaurant ‘Na Foradada’ and enjoy the beautiful live presentation that the ocean will perform only for you!

Once you fall in love with this island-continue your trip through the mountains direction Soller-the town of oranges! Saturday is a day when Soller has all the attention on the island, because of its vintage street market, known as one of the most beautiful markets on the island! Take a look at the Cathedral of St. Bartholomy, the patron saint of Soller, also known as one of the most original Cathedrals of the island. Other things to do in Palma? Don’t forget to try the ‘Cup de Soller’-the specialty of Soller! Take a tram to the Port of Soller, which will take 20 minutes and allow you to see some beautiful landscapes on your way, and of course-plenty of oranges and lemons everywhere around you! The town is named by Arabians who were living on the island for three centuries and in their language Soller means the sea shell-because the port is in a shape of a sea shell. While in the Port of Soller, enjoy the best mediterranean cuisine of the town (Courtesy of Sabarca Restaurant). The Port has a beautiful and calm beach where you can spend the afternoon after taking a long walk through the port. 

Take the tram back to the town of Soller and now-the best come last! Restaurant Nautilus-one of the most beautiful spots to see the sunset and amongst the best things to do in Palma! In this restaurant you will not only be able to explore the diversity of delicious food but also the special sunset-experience! The restaurant has a ‘secret spot’ called The terrace of Rome and Juliet where you can see the sunset in a unique way! The only thing that you have to do is to call previousely and reserve the terrace, if you want to make sure you will have it all for you!

Day 2 : Beach Day

Now that we’ve went through the west coast, let’s head to the east coast. Amazing how many there are things to do in Palma, and see of course. The most beautiful beaches of Mallorca are situated on the east coast of the island. We all know that the breakfast is the most important part of the day, so : Start your day with a rich breakfast so that you have all the energy that you need for the fun day ahead of you (Courtesy of Santina Brunch & More). 

First Stop: Calo des Moro-only 1 hour driving distance from Palma de Mallorca, and known as one of the most impressive beaches of Mallorca. Situated between two rocks, this is the typicall type of the beach of Malloca, called ‘cala’. It’s very easy to find the parking, from where you would need 10-15 minutes walking distance until you reach the beach. Very calm and small beach where the water is cristal blue as the sky! From this beach only 10 minutes driving distance is the next stop: Cala Llombards. Another ‘cala’ where you can have a cold drink in the beach bar and lose yourself in the natural habitat of the island.

Now, let’s head to Santanyi, the most original town of the east coast. Every Sunday there is a vintage street market in the town, where people from the whole island come to visit the town just because of this market! Let the town inspire you with its art and beauty, and allow yourself to get lost in the time. This would be a perfect spot to have a little afternoon break for lunch (Courtesy of Restaurant Goli).
