Although it’s the largest of the Balearic islands, Mallorca is still small enough to explore in a few days. There’s a superb choice of beaches, from tiny coves to long sweeping bays, as well as mountains, small cobbled villages and flat agricultural plains.
Drive to Formentor beach for incredible views along the way, dramatic cliffs, and shallow waters on the beach itself (perfect for children). Cala St Vincent beach is another option, where you can explore the cluster of prehistoric caves known as ‘L’Alzineret’, belonging to the Mediterranean bronze Age. Puerto Pollença beach is perfect for families, with windsurfing, banana boating and a surfing school on offer. See Mallorca beaches for more.
Things to do
Explore Pollença old town, its markets, restaurants and bustling atmosphere; visit historical Alcudia old town; take a trip to the Palma aquarium or a train-ride through the mountains; or charter a yacht for a day. Mallorca is full of things to see and do - if you can bear to tear yourself away from the poolside or the beach.
