With some of the best beaches in the Mediterranean, this Balearic Island is sandwiched in a melting pot of culture, with Italy, Croatia and Greece just a few of the countries found on its borders.
Even though small in size, there is a vast amount to discover, so it is useful to have a car at your disposal, allowing you time, freedom and a bit of adventure on your travels. On arrival pick up your car from us at the Avis Car hire branch at Mallorca airport. With so much to see whilst on holiday, you want to be sure that you can be as mobile as possible; enjoying all the sites Mallorca has to offer.
Mallorca has a wide variety of activities to choose from across the island. We recommend a trip to the capital, La Palma, one of the most visited locations in Mallorca. Being a coastal location, you will discover an array of restaurants to enjoy local cuisines such as the Ensaimada Mallorquina, a sweet pastry made on the island and fresh seafood dishes.
If you prefer a bit of retail therapy, be sure to visit the city centre, Paseo del Borne, filled with well-known brands to local boutiques. For those who like sporting activities, Mallorca has an array of locations along the coast, such as Serra Tramuntana (an area full of natural landscapes to climb, hike, bike and discover) or Cabrera for its range of wildlife (perfect for a great family outing).
Part of Mallorca’s charm being an island, is its picturesque playas and calas. Surrounded by greenery, crystal waters and white sand, it is a must see when visiting the area. Below we have highlighted just a few for your travels.
Calas de Mallorca
We recommend driving up to the Calas de Mallorca first. These beaches are situated around the three lovely coves of Cala Domingos Grans, Cala Domingos Petits and Cala Antena. With white sand and beautiful blue water, this is a postcard worthy image to capture.
Visit the award winning beach of S’Amarador, which often tops polls as one of the best beaches in Europe. It’s one of two beautiful beaches in the Mondrago Natural Park on the south east coast of the island with stunning scenery and picturesque landscapes to drive through. Surrounded by pine trees, this unspoilt beach offers incredible views of the Mediterranean terrain.
Another beach to visit is Es Trenc. Situated only 24 miles away from Mallorca’s capital, La Palma in the area known as Campos, it is one of the most beautiful beaches in the area.
In full, wherever you decide to visit on the island of Mallorca you will never be far away from a beautiful beach, outdoor activities or a new discovery, which is why it is one of the world’s best holiday destinations.
